About the Team

At Meesho, we love to create impact consistently. And we need you to help us do that better. We’re making e-commerce accessible for tier-2+ markets who are new to e-commerce and have almost never transacted online before ?. Our Design team is as diverse as our users. Today, the team comprises of about 30 Designers – including Product designers, UI designers, and Design Managers ?

As a UI Designer, you’ll be part of a team solving unique problems, one that’s mostly untouched by other e-commerce players. But wait, there’s more! We’re individuals who are obsessed with our users. We empathise. We solve at grassroots levels. We’re breaking all the barriers -- be it language, literacy, culture, or technology?

In 2021 we created a brand new Mesh Design System followed by a full app revamp - all in just 3 months! It’s hardly a coincidence that our monthly orders improved by 10X in the last two years.
