About Cinder

Cinder provides a cutting-edge investigation platform to protect the internet. Trust and Safety teams at the world’s most influential companies need powerful solutions that allow them to innovate and adapt as quickly as the threats they face. Companies rely on our software to investigate and disrupt threats like hate groups, terrorist organizations, and state-sponsored disinformation campaigns.

We seek a creative, forceful designer to bring bold, product-focused thinking to the software used by the internet’s most critical investigations, policy, operations, and security teams.

This is a full-time position and we operate fully remote with teammates in DC, Austin, SF, and Chicago. We also believe in the value of frequent in-person meet-ups and learning face-to-face.

  • Plan generative and evaluative UX research to understand our users’ needs, and test design concepts, all the way through execution
  • Create compelling wireframes, mocks, and prototypes of golden flows and edge use cases for our software
  • Craft beautiful decks with the product team to showcase design solutions for our clients
  • Lead visual design work for the platform
  • Establish a scalable design language and system for the platform as it scales out
  • Support broader design efforts, including marketing and branding
  • Excellent written and spoken English communication skills. As a remote company, we need to be able to communicate with each other and our customers quickly and clearly!

About you

  • Strong portfolio that demonstrates a love for simple design solutions
  • Expert level skills in Figma and Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Demonstrated experience in wireframing, and creating screen flows and prototypes (Invision, Framer, Origami etc.)
  • Interest in joining a small, bold team
  • Interest in solving some of the world’s most pressing problems

Some nice-to-haves

  • Experience working at a startup
  • Experience with motion design and creating delightful moments through animations
  • Experience using common website builders (Webflow, Wordpress, etc.) or Tailwind CSS
  • Experience working for a social media, marketplace, or media company with knowledge of how attackers can abuse these systems

Why join us?

As design lead at Cinder, you’ll be paramount in determining the entire end-to-end experience for our customers, having your work be seen, utilized, and loved by investigators protecting the largest communities in the world. We’re building and implementing the most advanced investigation system, and your customers and partner organizations are some of the world’s largest enterprises.
