- 3+ years of experience shipping awesome products
- Diversified portfolio of products you were a part of
- Excellent visualisation skills

- Understand business/user needs and suggest improvements
- Define experience for new and existing features
- Develop high level and/or detailed storyboards, mockups and wireframes to communicate interaction and design ideas

What you will work on
We’re an engineering company and our guys write complex apps for clients in over 12 countries around the world. This will put you at the forefront of intricate flows, surprising personas and tons of products brewing over in our Railsware Labs.
Be prepared to keep up with our engineering and product teams and twist your head around really hard interaction problems including a good amount of data-heavy products. Apps would be your major focus, there is a potential to do a marketing site once in awhile, but it won’t be the core.
So far we served guys over at Google, Brightbytes, Calendly, Sendgrid and more. Check our case studies.
About the company
Railsware is a software consultancy company turned into a product studio. We’ve worked with Calendly, SendGrid, Philips, Google, and a whole bunch of other interesting companies.
