tl;dr: We're looking for a rare breed: someone who can interview users, design thoughtful features, and then produce high-fidelity mocks for our engineers to implement. If that's you, we're dying to talk to you.
Tuple is a macOS app for remote pair programming (with an eventual Linux client likely).
We (Ben, Spencer, and Joel) founded the company 2 years ago because we hated pairing over Slack and Zoom. We believed that by focusing on remote pairing exclusively, we could create a tool that developers would actually like.
We bootstrapped the company from our own savings, and only hired our first full-time employee a few months ago (an awesome engineer named Mikey).
Despite these constraints, things are working really well. People are doing tens of thousands of pairing sessions on Tuple each week, including the savvy engineers at Stripe, Basecamp, and Shopify.
(Want the latest on how things are going? Ben hosts a weekly podcast where he shares regular updates.)
Larger companies have separate roles for Product Manager (talks to users, owns the roadmap), UX (figures out how things should work), and UI (implements the design).
We're still a small startup (four full-timers, two part-timers), so we're looking for someone who can do all three.
Not at the same time, mind you. You'll switch between them depending on the needs of the product and team.
Later, we'll likely expand the Product team and you can focus on the parts that interest you most.
As our Senior Product Designer, you'll have a strong influence on what we build and when. You won't be on your own, though. You'll have input from the CEO and the folks in Engineering, Support, and Sales. We all want an awesome roadmap, and will happily contribute to it.
A key part of this role is getting incredibly familiar with our customers. You'll be talking to them constantly and using their feedback to guide your decisions. When we know what to build, you'll design UIs for our native macOS app.
This is a critical role, and we're looking for someone with a rare combination of skills. As such, we expect to pay a premium for you.
Sign up for Tuple's two-week free trial, try it with a friend, and propose a project to improve some aspect of the experience. Act as if we already work together and you're pitching us on the next thing we should spend a month on. Email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
