Job Description

Step up to a founding role in a venture-backed startup on a mission to improve human communication.

  • Establish a cutting edge universal visual communication design system, and deliver it in a beautiful, intuitive product experience
  • Take ownership with a salaried, founding team role
  • Shape company's design culture from the ground up

About The Role

Visual stories are the best way to share ideas, yet visuals are hard to create without a designer today. Meet Stick - a communication visualization platform that illustrates your ideas, in real time and helps you tell better stories.

That's why we're building Stick - a communication visualization platform that illustrates your ideas, in real time and helps you tell better stories.

Ideal Candidate

As the Founding Product Design Lead, you will need:

  • 10x Visual Design Skills: Absolute expert in communication design. Build pixel perfect user interfaces. Consumer-quality product design experience a plus.
  • Strategic Systems Thinking: product mindset enables you to balance building pixel-perfect interfaces with high-level strategic thinking. You think in systems, not only individual assets.
  • Conceptual Creativity: ability to generate wild ideas and take risks to solve tough problems. Ability to ruthlessly simplify.
  • Design for AI: you want to craft a "personality" to make an AI-powered tool feel more accessible and personalized, from writing copy to interaction design.
  • Speak Code: frontend development skills a plus. Technical communication skills a must.

This is a full-time on-site role for our sunny office in Culver City, a short walk away from the Expo Line and the Platform. As this is a founding team role, remote is not possible.

More About Stick

Stick was founded on the hypothesis that the visualization of ideas was a process that could be turned into a program.

After incubating the idea in Stanford's Launchpad program, Alli learned to code to build the beta with outsourced devs, tested it with 100s of users, recruited a customer advisory board (Stripe, Salesforce, Optimizely, etc.), built a waitlist of 1100+ (from orgs like Intercom, Treasure Data, PatientPop), and raised a round from top VCs (the same investors and operators behind companies like Dropbox, Figma, Canva, Facebook).
