/ Product (UI/UX) Designer

About the company:

goTenna creates distributed communication networks that increase scale, resiliency, and access. Communications is the keystone of all fundamental facilities and systems, but today’s infrastructure must evolve in order to meet 21st century needs. At goTenna, we are working on advancing universal access to connectivity by decentralizing it.

goTenna builds next-generation wireless architectures to power bottom-up communications networks that get stronger as they grow. We focus on low-power, low-cost, modular mobile ad-hoc networking protocols and devices that are easy-to-use and developer-friendly. Our parallel networks are designed to both enable completely off-grid communication and augment traditional systems by extending the practical edge of connectivity.

We care a ton about what we’re building — from both social and technological perspectives — and our team is a scrappy group, armed with a few rounds of venture capital from some really nice folks (incl. Union Square Ventures, Collaborative Fund, Bloomberg Beta, A16Z, Brooklyn Bridge, MentorTech, BBG Ventures, Walden VC). Our downtown Brooklyn loft is stocked with snacks, a nap room named after Freud, and friendly, smart people who like teaching and learning from each other.

About the role:

We’re hiring our first in-house product (UI/UX) designer, in a varied role encompassing our mobile apps and website (including e-commerce funnel), which reach assorted markets and end-users (i.e. B2C, B2B, B2G).

If you’re the right person for this role, you: love exploring and testing multiple approaches to arrive at the “best possible” mobile or web experience for the target end-user; apply exceptional attention to detail to every project, no matter the screen or page at hand; commit to iterating product design through learnings derived from users as well as data (i.e. you’re comfortable with both the science and the art of product design); have demonstrated ability to execute with limited resources (upside: total ownership!); have real passion for user-centered design and demonstrated ability applying user-centered design principles to create amazing web and mobile flows that continuously enhance and grow the user experience and, moreover, aligns with core strategic business goals.

You’d bring all of this experience to our growing team, where you’ll get to work closely with the CEO, COO/VPE, product managers, engineers, graphic designers and more. And although goTenna is a mid-stage startup, you’d get to come in and rethink our mobile apps and web conversion funnels from scratch — we’re looking for someone to come in with fresh eyes, new ideas, and UI/UX expertise to take everything we’ve done so far to the next level.

Your core areas of focus will be:

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:
