  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills with English accompanied by good EQ and resilience.
  • Experience with SW for designers (Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD or similar). We use Adobe XD.
  • Solving problems independently or in collaborative environment. Self-motivation to find answers.
  • Work in GMT (EU) or GMT-3/4 (East Americas) timezones or between.

  • Experience building and maintaining design systems.

How will your working day look like

You will start your day when you want in the morning and decide for yourself where you’re going to work. The whole product/design team works remotely, but there are certain periods when we gladly go to our office in Ostrava, Czech Republic or Barcelona, Spain.

First thing in the morning, we have an asynchronous stand-up via Basecamp.

We usually summarise the previous day’s issues as well as tasks for the current day at the stand-up.

Everyone then works on their assignments during the day, and any other potential communication is carried on via Basecamp / Github / calls / Adobe XD. Nobody checks anybody as for when and how they work – only the results are important.

During the day and at the end of it, we sync our work with others to keep the team in the loop.

Currently, we have 4-weeks long development cycles. The first week of the cycle is from a big part focused on planning and is, therefore, more meeting heavy than other weeks.

How to apply?

To apply for this position please send a short summary of your work experience and portfolio of your work. Please also upload a 1 minute video where you explain what attracts you about this role.
