Senior Product Designer — Freelance

Are you looking to fast-track your design career?
If so, this is the opportunity for you. We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our design agency, part-time, on an ongoing basis.

You’ll join a team that’s well used to collaborating together, and quickly grow into leading our client-facing deliverables. We already have a killer creative process. You’ll work closely with the founder, to develop and refine this process into an industry-leading productised service. As such, we’re looking for someone highly motivated and passionate about both digital product design, and early-stage startup life.

The ideal candidate is already a well-rounded designer. Aesthetics, process, user flows, app architecture, engineering constraints, and design systems, are all areas you already understand deeply. Now, after mastering your craft as an individual, you’re looking to develop as a leader. Here particularly, you’ll be supported by the founder on a daily basis to develop your skill sets as a creative leader.

You should already have experience working in-house at an early-stage tech startup as a product designer. Now, you're looking for the variation agency work offers.

Your portfolio should show your talents as a designer, your application letter should describe your relevant experience, and why you think you’re perfect for this role. The role will start off part-time, but quickly grow into something more substantial as both parties feel more comfortable.

What we offer

  • Learn a killer product design process
  • Develop and evolve that process
  • Upskill into a leadership role
  • Both support & creative freedom
  • Impact. This is a senior position with significant influence. You’ll grow and take on as much ownership as you show you can handle.


  • University degree in design (particular focus can vary)
  • 5+ years work experience as a product designer
  • 2+ years work experience in a tech startup
  • An outstanding design portfolio demonstrating the following:
    • Can cultivate the X-factor within your designs
    • Deep knowledge of both UX and UI design
    • Deep understanding of the creative process
    • An eye for quality and detail
  • You’re up to date with our ever-evolving industry tools and standards
  • You’re a team player, with great interpersonal skills
  • Live in Berlin (though we work remote)


  • Ownership of client-facing product design process
  • Lay project foundations
    • App architecture
    • Cultivate magic moment
  • Coordinate design contributors
