Senior UI Designer
You: Designer and creator of beautiful, user friendly interfaces.
Us: Linktree, a rapidly growing Australian tech company. 20,000+ new account sign-ups a day kind of rapid.
A match? Let's discuss further.
You will be working closely with the Head of Design and a small team of Designers, Product Managers and a large team of Engineers to make all Linktree interfaces a joy for our users. Accessibility is high on our list and we’d like it to be high on yours. We want to work with you to create compelling, future-forging digital experiences that change the way people share, consume and create content.
Most of our team is based in Melbourne with our office in Collingwood but we are spread across Australia, LA, and Ireland.
We will remain a mixed remote and in-office environment so we are open to this role being based anywhere in Australia with a slight preference for Melbourne so we can see you IRL from time to time.
What is your company culture like?
While every company will say their culture is amazing, ours really is. Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:
We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.
We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.
Due to COVID we are all remote but even when COVID is behind us, we will be a mixed remote and in-office company. With our team already spread across 8 locations and 3 countries, we will always be some form of remote.
We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to https://www.smilingmind.com.au/ & https://uprise.co/, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.
Instead of a list of demands, we'll tell you all the different things we'd love for you to challenge yourself with in this role. As a startup in scale mode, the mentality of "Sure, I can do that, given the opportunity and with a bit of help from my team!" is what we look for in all of our hires.
It would be great if you were able to:
- Use Figma and/or Sketch at the highest level. We’re talking plugins, libraries, components, symbols, automation...all the ‘smarter not harder’ things.
- Work collaboratively with engineers & don’t think of yourself as separate teams
- Visual design is the focus here but you will have solid UX principles behind you
- Come to work loaded with inspiration and enthusiasm for interfaces
- Work with and continue to develop and influence our design system
- Give and take constructive feedback well. Design is a team sport at Linktree
How senior? What backgrounds?
As a guide, around 5 years and above in UI design positions, ideally in cross-functional teams. We have another Senior designer in the team so with the two of you, we’re aiming for our next hires to be junior or mid for you to mentor.
The Linktree story…
We have grown quickly in 2020, from a team of 20 people to 40 in the past 6 months, with more growth planned due to the continued expansion of our customer base around the world.
The Linktree journey begins in 2016 when co-founders Alex, Anthony and Nick were running a digital agency and using Instagram to make announcements about the artists they managed. Created as a side hustle to solve a simple problem, Linktree has well outgrown its roots, with over 8 million users worldwide, 20,000 new signups every day, and over 120 million unique views per month. Paired with rapid growth, Linktree has recently garnered much attention in the tech world, earning 4th place on Fast Company's "10 most innovative social media companies of 2020".
The Linktree audience is broad, spanning publications, artists, celebrities, fashion and beauty influencers, YouTube stars, sports teams and household brands, right the way through to individuals with a side hustle and micro-influencers. Linktree subscribers include Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, Pharrell, Jamie Oliver, Vice, Red Bull, Adult Swim, Patreon, Naomi Campbell, Comedy Central, Gordon Ramsay, Billabong…and many more!
