As a Product Designer, you’ll rely on user-centered design methods to craft user experiences from paper prototypes to production.

Our teams include designers, researchers, and engineers who are passionate about quality, usability, and simplicity. We work on cross functional teams to solve complex challenges and craft experiences that highlight our developers’ unique capabilities and personalities.

Our #1 business principle is "Our clients' interests always come first. Our experience shows that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow". Every customer is given maximum attention to understand their needs. We adopt the most appropriate approach to drive the business of the customer or institution towards the desired growth. 

Our team is diverse and global - you will be joining a nimble, cross-disciplinary team of designers, researchers and product managers in offices in the US, Europe, and Asia. We enjoy taking deep dives into complex problems, surrounded by a network of passionate people who help each other grow.  Our team's range of skills and diversity of approaches allows us to partner with business and technology teams firmwide to create digital products that are easy to use, engaging, powerful, and competitive. 

As we build the platform for the developer ecosystem of the future, success will be defined by both the developer and product publisher experience.
