About the role

Quartzy is seeking a talented Senior Product Designer to join our Product team to help us shape brand new features for our web application. You’ll have a chance to play a major part in growing our product organization as our company scales.

About you Our customers are doing some of the coolest work in the world (some are literally attempting to cure cancer), and you are excited about making their lives easier by building seamless experiences.

You adroitly interpret qualitative and quantitative data, using them to iterate toward effortlessly usable solutions.
