About the role

At Playground AI (”PAI”), we combine AI research and product design to invent new kinds of creative tools.

Note: We are only accepting candidates from the U.S. or Canada at this time

Over the next 10 years we plan to create a powerful AI render pipeline that allows us to edit, create, and understand pixels to accomplish challenging tasks ranging from instructing an AI to make subtle changes to images, creating entire 3D environments, and understanding context of a scene in a video. We plan to start by accomplishing difficult tasks with images first.

Our mission is to awaken the imagination within each of us.

If you join us, you’ll be an early team member in helping shape:

  1. Our future company culture
  2. Our engineering practices
  3. People that we hire
  4. The direction & focus of our products

What we're looking for:

  • You will be the second full-time product designer on the team—you'll work directly with Suhail
  • Experienced at talking to users and willing to constantly do so without encouragement
  • Willing to explore product ideas through design and animation before executing on them
  • Willing to throw away ideas if they're not great. Optimistic enough to keep hunting for new ones.
  • Excited to collaborate with everyone on the team: engineers, customer facing folks, etc—you believe inspiration can come from anywhere
  • You have good judgement to push the most impactful ideas forward that will make users happy
  • You don't believe users are our guinea pigs: we ship great products when they're ready and something we might often use ourselves.
  • You have good judgement of when to ship: perfect is the enemy of good
  • You care about details and are excited to keep pushing your work

Skills & Experience

  • Are an expert in either UI, UX, or visual design, but skilled in more disciplines across product design
  • Have 5+ years relevant design experience at a tech, product-driven company
  • Familiar with tools like or similar to Figma

Here are examples of things we’ve worked on:

  • Social features: commenting, uploading profile pictures, re-thinking the home page feed
  • Introducing ways to explore similar images to help our users be inspired by using CLIP-based embeddings.
  • Re-thinking navigation components from actions users take on images to our entire site menu system
  • Making it easy to select many images from a user's profile to download in a single zip file
