Product Designer

We’re looking for a mid or senior-level product designer to jump into a variety of projects. Join a growing digital agency that tackles interesting projects and cares about its people.

Full-time · Remote

Krit is a growing digital agency that partners with Cyber Security startups to design and build innovative new products.

We typically work with 4-8 clients at one time on projects like:

  • Designing a web app to visualize the background noise of the internet and uncover the      next wave of cyber attacks.
  • Creating software that helps Fortune 500 companies visualize opportunities for attack within their networks and improve their security.
  • Building a dashboard used by security teams at city governments and utilities to detect abnormal network traffic.

Our clients’ products have been used by brands like Dropbox, Lyft, Microsoft, Nike, Yale University, government agencies and more.

Last year, we made more than $1M in revenue as a company and are on track to increase that this year. We’re a bootstrapped, transparent company and share our profits with our team every quarter. 🎉

Note: Because some of our clients work with government agencies, this role is only open to US citizens.

We’re looking for a mid or senior-level product designer
We’re looking for a mid or senior-level product designer with an eye for detail and a passion for creating software that looks great and is easy to use. You should have experience producing wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive mockups for software applications. You should also be comfortable owning a project from start to finish and collaborating within a small team.

Detail oriented
Most of your work will be creating production-ready, high-fidelity prototypes that will serve as the blueprint for our developers to implement. You should have a sharp eye for details in your design and pay attention to things like consistent typography, spacing and use of color.

User focused
You will be working with clients to create products that solve real problems for their users. You should always be thinking about the people using the software you design and make thoughtful considerations for things like error messages, empty states, and edge cases.

Eye for aesthetics
We create software that solves problems and looks great doing it (nobody wants to use ugly software!). You should be a creative visual designer with an understanding of how aesthetics impact user experience and perception.

Accepting of feedback
We believe sharing and getting feedback on designs early and often produces the best work. You should seek out feedback on your ideas as a way to push your work to the best it can be.

What to expect at Krit
You’ll be working with clients and our two designers, Austin and Nathan, to take ideas through a full design process that includes wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive prototypes. This will be a mix of new products and new features/redesigns for existing products. For new projects you will own the entire process from user interviews to high fidelity mockups.

You will have an opportunity to learn from our talented team and to mentor more junior designers as we grow. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to have a real impact and be a part of a small, close-knit team. We care deeply about our people, our culture and building a company that stands by our values.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Producing wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive prototypes for new products and features (we currently use Figma for designing and collaborating)
  • Conducting user interviews and analyzing analytics data to guide clients on design directions
  • Working with other Kritters to ideate and explore design directions for new products
  • Writing microcopy for your designs
  • Participating in design critiques with the Krit team and with clients
  • Working with developers to help them understand and implement your designs

In this role, you won’t be responsible for:

  • Project management
  • Implementing your designs in code

You’ll be a human, not a number
We believe our greatest opportunity for impact is by creating a great place to work and modeling that for others. We’re striving to build a culture that’s respectful, kind, supportive, and challenging. You won’t just be a number here—you’ll have a measurable impact on the direction of the business and the people around you.

You’ll be a part of an inclusive, transparent company
One of our goals is to build a more diverse company. To us, this means diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, and national origin. We strongly believe in building an inclusive workplace where everyone feels safe and invited.

We are also a fully transparent company. We share our finances, salaries, pipeline, and more with our team.

All roles at Krit come with:

💸Competitive salary + profit sharing
This will be a salaried position starting at $85,000 or $115,000 per year depending on experience level. All full-time team members also participate in our yearly profit-sharing program and receive yearly raises.

Our salaries and raise process are completely transparent, you can see our Compensation Model here. For this position we are looking for a Level 2 or Level 3 Designer.

👩‍⚕️Benefits
We offer competitive healthcare plans, as well as dental, vision, and short term disability. We also provide access to a 401k plan and match 80% of the first 5% of employee contributions.

🏖Vacation days
All Krit employees get 15 vacation days as well as 10 company holidays. We also provide additional time for sick leave, mental health days, and bereavement leave.

🌎Remote, United States
We are headquartered in Charleston, SC but our team is fully distributed. For this role, we are only considering applicants who are eligible to work in the United States.

🕰Flexible hours
Everyone is different. As long as you can be available for team meetings and are able to communicate effectively with the team, work when you work best. We expect people to work 7 hours a day plus an hour break for lunch, and to average about 6 billable hours per day.

💻Equipment budget
Every new employee gets $2,500 to spend on equipment, so you can pick whatever works best for you.

👼Paid family leave
We offer a family leave plan of up to 4 weeks paid vacation and 4 weeks unpaid regardless of your gender.

💜Donations
Every month we donate $1,000 to social justice efforts regardless of company revenue. We hope to expand this in the future to climate efforts and more.

How to apply
First, submit an application. If we think you could bring something new to the team, we’ll schedule a short, 30-minute phone interview with Andrew. During this time, we’ll get to know each other and dive into your background.

If the phone interview indicates you’re a good addition to the team, we’ll schedule a more in-depth design interview with our team. There will be a take-home design exercise as part of the final interview.

The design interview will consist of 3 parts:

  1. Get to know some other Kritters and talk about your past experience and projects.
  2. Case study – You’ll come prepared with two of your previous projects and walk us through your process for each.
  3. Design project – We’ll review your take-home project and ask us to walk you through your process.
    We’re looking to fill this position as soon as possible.

During the process we’ll do our best to let you know if it’s not going to be a good fit. Thank you for taking the time to read this far, we can’t wait to meet you!
