About the role

What We Do:

Beacons is the easiest way for creators to build a custom mobile-first website that their fans love! We help creators build their online identity, gain insights about their audience, and monetize their business.

We're excited to tackle the rapidly growing, $100 billion creator economy. There's a huge opportunity to help creators build the businesses of tomorrow, and we're positioned to build the defining solution!

TLDR:

  • You’ll work closely with our Founding Designer to own, drive, and design compelling user experiences that excite and enhance our creators’ lives

About You:

  • You can Figma in your sleep

  • You have a strong understanding of how web products are designed and built (this includes visual design, design systems, front-end development, user experiences, conversion optimization)

  • You’re able to articulate and share design decisions with excitement and clarity

  • You’re empathetic with low ego, thriving in environments with continuous feedback and improvement

  • You’re patient and comfortable with constant change and the unknown

  • You’re scrappy and resourceful, taking pride in ownership, delivery and speed

  • You have 3+ years of design experience

What You’d Be Working On:

  • Designing the all-in-one suite for the content creator business, which includes the Beacons website builder, financial products, media kits, analytics tools, customer relationship management tools, & much more!

  • Partnering with PMs scope out new features - this includes helping with facilitating and gathering user research, prototyping new flows and experiences, delivering handover documents, writing acceptance criteria, etc

  • Building collaborative partnerships with Product Managers, Engineers, designers and everyone at Beacons to deliver a product that we are all proud of

  • Collaborating with other members of the Beacons Design Team to add meaningful contributions to Beacons’ culture and its design processes (we have a strong written documentation culture in Notion)

  • Helping hire and mentor our future design hires

  • Ad-hoc design tasks that are outside of the usual product design realm (like pitch decks and merch!)

It’d be a major bonus this applies to you:

  • You can easily understand an Australian accent

What We Can Offer:

  • Competitive salary and equity grant. We have a standard four year vesting schedule with a one year cliff

  • We give about 4 weeks of paid time off and we want you to use them! This is on top of federal holidays 🇺🇸🎉

  • Platinum level medical, vision, and dental insurance with 99% employer-paid premiums for employees and coverage for eligible dependents

  • 401(k) retirement savings and investing plan

  • Monthly gym stipend

  • Reimbursement for a home office setup. We will get you what you need to do your best work!

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. No matter what you come in knowing, you'll be learning new things all the time and we'll be here to help. Our team still has a lot to learn and if you join us, we would love for you to learn and grow with us!

Why you should join Beacons

Beacons is creating new economic opportunities for creators.

We believe that the future of work is going to see more people constructing a career (and a life, since the two are more intertwined than ever) that they really enjoy around who they are — and creators are the first wave. If you’re excited for this future and want to help us get there sooner, please get in touch!

We're currently 20+ people, half based in San Francisco and half remote.
