We Are Builders is a startup studio. Together with our Founders Network we turn internally validated concepts into independent SaaS and Marketplace ventures in no more than 18 months. Our studio brings together concept, co-founders, capital and infrastructure. One of the most important parts of our infrastructure is our core team of experts which consist of two development teams plus supporting roles such as design, UX and finance.

Core team

To further strengthen our core team we’re looking for a product designer who will set the design language and overall products look & feel. As an important member of the core- team you’ll work on all of our portfolio companies and be part of the larger We Are Builders team. Our team takes pride in working together, sharing knowledge and help each other with challenges.

Product Designer

As a Product Designer, you will work closely with Founders to extract their needs and inspirations and turn them into a designed experience that is aligned with their vision. You will set the visual identity of the venture and setup design systems and design the actual software-product for each of them.

We as a studio have an agile mindset and work in sprints, this means that all design and development work will be delivered iteratively so we can learn and make the best decisions. This reflects in designing and building rapid prototypes that can be tested together with the team and the users of a product. Everyone gets the opportunity to give feedback and we determine a strategy on how we roll out the new features to all of our users.

We are looking for someone who feels at home in the changing software world, someone who wants to help improve the products with us, someone who is responsible for the quality and knows how to guarantee this. You are the person who loves to experiment, follows the trends but designs a timeless great product. Curious to see what we like in product design?
