✍🏽 About Writer

AI your people will love. That's our vision, and it contains multitudes :-)


your people

will love.

We're filling a big need for generative AI built ground-up for the needs of enterprises and embraced by their teams. As generative AI became a board-level initiative almost overnight for most enterprises, our market matured dramatically and we benefit from that tailwind. Our product is highly differentiated, our roadmap is transformative, and our customers are happy and vocal.

📐 About this role

Writer is looking for a senior product designer that's thoughtful and talented. You'll be instrumental in bringing our product design vision to market and establishing the foundation for future growth. This is the perfect role for a designer who is looking to make impactful decisions in the product org. Writer is experiencing an incredible market moment as generative AI has taken the world by storm. Our team is a fully distributed team, but we do require overlap with PST time zone.

🦸‍♀️ Who you are

  • You're a visually-focused designer and have a keen eye for aesthetics, details, and pixel perfection

  • You feel comfortable designing from the ground up rather than sole from within an existing design system. Note: we do have a design system, but we're constantly designing new experiences that push its boundaries

  • You are passionate about building great user experiences and keeping a team centered on the user throughout research, design and implementation —all while keeping business and technical angles in mind

  • You are ready to take ownership of a complex, growing product and are comfortable with ambiguity; you learn quickly

  • You love collaborating with passionate and talented cross-functional partners

  • You’re intentional about your design decisions and communicate them simply and clearly

🚀 What you’ll do

  • Design the user experience of Writer products, including:

    • Researching user and business objectives in collaboration with Product

    • Translating user needs and business objectives into designs that help our customers get the job done (delightfully)

    • Prototyping and testing the efficacy of designed solutions

    • Building design system components and experiences from scratch, as needed (and using what we can from the existing design system)

  • Gather feedback and figure out how to iterate and improve things you launch

  • Work on the product roadmap with cross-functional partners

  • Keep upgrading the design process, quality, and community at Writer

⭐️ You have

  • 8+ years of experience working as a UX/UI or Product Designer

  • Experience building UI components from scratch (founding designer, expanded an existing design system, overhauled an existing design system)

  • Experience working on a technical or B2B product is a plus, but not required
