About the role

Who We Are:

Here at Odeko, we believe that humans achieve more when they control their own destiny. That’s why we’re creating best-in-class solutions that empower small businesses to realize their big dreams -- starting with our mobile ordering app and supply chain management service. With Odeko, coffee shops and cafés can increase their revenue, lower their expenses, and reduce their environmental footprint effortlessly.

We’re a passionate team of dreamers and builders, determined to liberate small businesses from the not-so-fun aspects of the job so that they can focus on what’s fun and important.

At Odeko, we strive to build the best possible products for our customers. The product team is a collection of product managers, experience designers, and interface designers who partner with our engineering team, to ensure that we develop a user experience that brings our customers joy. This role reports to the Sr. Director of Experience Design.

In this role, you will:

  • Work as a trusted member of a product design team that designs great products
  • Develop a deep understanding of our customers and their goals
  • Build design assets for feature projects (e.g., wireframes, mockups, prototypes) in collaboration with PMs, interface designers, engineers, and customers
  • Help establish and refine adoption of our experience design standards
  • Contribute feedback on other designers’ projects

You’re an ideal candidate if:

  • You have 6+ years of experience designing native mobile application and web-based application experiences and interactions from concept to production
  • You have strong user empathy
  • You view yourself as a user advocate and want to deeply understand their needs 
  • You’re hungry for user behavior data and love speaking with customers, hearing their feedback, and adjusting your approach accordingly
  • You have a good balance between confidence in your choices and your ability to seek others’ ideas, added context, and feedback to iterate collaboratively
  • Your designs are well-reasoned and you’re able to clearly communicate the “why” behind your choices, as well the details of how interactions should work to PMs, interface designers, and engineers
  • You have a strong attention to detail and drive towards consistency
  • You desire to work in a fast changing, dynamic startup environment
  • You turn challenging projects into world-class designs
  • You are a self-starter and finisher
  • You have a portfolio to showcase your work


Odeko is committed to building an inclusive, diverse team. We offer competitive benefits and the opportunity to truly grow. If this sounds good to you, we’d love to hear from you!

No third-parties please.
