About Mosey

Mosey makes employment compliance a breeze so fast-growing companies can hire and operate anywhere—without the administrative burden.

What's so hard about hiring people in multiple locations anyway?

Each country, state, and municipality has its own employment requirements that need to be maintained on an ongoing basis. Those requirements span HR, tax, accounting, and legal which is complicated and requires deep expertise. As a result, keeping up with the differences and the sheer volume of obligations makes hiring people in many locations expensive and painful.

About the role:

As the first design hire, you’ll get to shape the direction of our platform, internal tools and while collaborating closely with product, engineering, and business leaders. You will also have the unique opportunity to create the design function from the ground up, and establish our design strategy, process, and culture for years to come.

You will:

  • Collaborate with the product and engineering teams to define and implement innovative features that directly impact our product’s user experience.

  • Deliver all design specifications and assets to engineering for final execution.

  • Deliver a wide range of artifacts like wireframes, user stories, user flows, process flows, and design prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design intent.

  • Develop and maintain design systems to ensure consistency across visual elements and user interface across the product.

  • Actively participate in stand-ups, brainstorming sessions, demos and design reviews.

  • Help establish and promote a positive, collaborative, and innovative company culture.

We're looking for someone with:

  • Minimum of 5 years of work experience in product design role for a digital startup.

  • Range to sketch on the whiteboard, on paper, and in design tools such as Sketch, Figma, Adobe, or similar tools.

  • Confidence to communicate and present effectively. Able to articulate design decisions to stakeholders.

  • A portfolio that showcases your ability to create user-centered design solutions.

  • Curiosity to continue learning - if you are someone who loves to constantly learn, lets chat!

You would be a good fit if:

  • You want your work to have a positive impact and create economic opportunity

  • You have experience working at a startup or led a new project from scratch

  • You have deep expertise in designing for data-rich digital Saas platforms

  • You are excited about the opportunity to build a design practice from the ground level

  • You embody urgency and focus, but also have an exacting standard of quality

  • You like to build systems and processes from the ground up

Our operating principles:

Pursue knowledge

Lead with curiosity, reject bad explanations, and create objective knowledge with a tradition of conjecture and criticism.

Writing is thinking

Many seemingly good ideas don’t survive closer inspection when written down. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, it’s precisely why you should.

Exude warmth

Build a working environment that is welcoming and supportive. Others will want to gather around you.

Be ambitious

We can do more than we think with imagination and resolve. Solving important problems requires it.

Our benefits:

  • Competitive compensation with material equity ownership
