Lead UI/UX Designer

Fully Remote

Design

The Role

Socious is an impact gig marketplace powered by blockchain and AI.

We started Socious in July 2021, so as an early employee you’ll be pivotal in shaping the direction of the company. We have enough runway to last us through the end of 2022, and are about to close a seed round to allow us to accelerate even faster.

We communicate in English, and so no Japanese ability is required, though there will be opportunities to use Japanese if you’d like to.

We’ve built a prototype version of our app using a combination of part-time freelance developers and offshore developers. As we secure funding, we’re now looking to bring on our first full time designer.

In this role, you’ll work closely with senior stakeholders to understand business goals and ensure that the design team & tools used are aligned with these. As we grow, you’ll have the opportunity to move into a Chief Design Officer role in the future.

Responsibilities

  • Lead and mentor a team of designers.
  • Deliver on all aspects of UI/UX design, from strategy to execution.
  • Translate user needs, business goals, and technology requirements to drive design decisions.
  • Partner with and influence executive stakeholders.
  • Build a user-centric vision for features across different devices including iOS, Android, and desktop.

Skills & Experience

  • A strong passion for social impact (previous experience with social impact organizations is an asset).
  • 10+ years of industry experience (or equivalent skills) as a UI/UX designer and/or manager in a cross-functional UI/UX team.
  • Experience in architecting system wide design solutions that satisfy both product and engineering requirements.
  • Experience in full product life cycle from design through deployment.

Language Skills

  • Business-level English skills are required. Japanese skills are desirable.

What’s on offer

  • Diverse, driven, and high-performing colleagues
  • A supportive, trusting and transparent working environment
  • Work-life balance with flexible hours and leave (unlimited paid leave)
  • Flexible work arrangements (full-time, part-time freelance, side-job, onsite, remote, etc.)
  • A competitive salary package: USD 87k - 175k (10-20 million yen) per year + stock options
  • Japan work visa sponsorship
