Wistia is hiring a

Product Designer

Cambridge, United States

Wistia believes that the future of doing business on the internet relies on video. We’re building software to make that future easier, more friendly, and more powerful, and we need a product designer to help us craft the details.

In this role, you’ll work directly on the Product team with engineers building features and improving our core product. This involves everything from early research and brainstorming to sketches, mockups, and prototypes. Right now we have only a single product designer, so we’re looking for someone who can hit the ground running, help us grow our team and process, and bring well-reasoned opinions to the table.

After all, the best software is opinionated. It evolves through rigorous attention to detail and judicious pruning, resulting in features that are delightfully powerful yet deceptively simple. It follows that you must be opinionated about everything from color palettes to grids to fonts to variable names and dropdown menus, and be able to thoughtfully critique those opinions too. And get that warm-and-fuzzy feeling when you find a deceptively simple solution to a complex problem. That’s probably the most important part.

Things that might sound exciting to you:

  • Tinkering
  • Quick sketches after a brainstorm
  • Realizing you've been debating the relative merits of two weights of the same typeface for forty-five minutes now
  • Learning about some clever new CSS trick
  • Making eight versions of the same interface element only to come back to the first one and realize it was the best option all along but feeling like the exercise was worth it because now you have a whole bunch of new reasons why it can't be any other way
  • Lists

This is a well-paid, full time job with all the standard corporate benefits like health & dental coverage, 401k, parental leave, and a generous untracked vacation policy. Our office is located just outside Central Square in Cambridge, MA. We're right on the Red Line, surrounded by great restaurants, parks, and even a candy factory!
