About Riff

A voice tool for remote collaboration in real time.

Job Description

Riff is a new class of voice tool for teams to collaborate in real-time. Instant, frictionless and always on, Riff makes it feel like your team is back in the same room, so you can chat about work *while* focusing on the actual work.
 
Less distracting than Slack or Email, and faster than having to schedule and wait for a video call, Riff exists so that your team can regain peak efficiency.
 
## **Why Riff?**
 
- **Solve a big problem.** The next phase of knowledge work will increasingly happen remotely. This is not without challenges, especially when it comes to collaborating with your team. At Riff, we believe in teams ****that work together to make the sum greater than their parts. We are building Riff for the millions of teams that wish to move fast and drive change.
- **Join an exceptional team.** You will be working alongside exceptional people who have gone through a high growth journey and built billion dollar companies before. Joining this early means you get a real opportunity to work closely with the founders, grow the team and shape the culture.
- **Join us at a magical time.** We are backed by some of Europe's best investors, and have big ambitions. Riff is in its early stages, and we count on every single team member to shape its success.
 
## Why this role?
 
We're looking for an experienced designer who's comfortable owning the end to end experience of Riff. From the earliest stages of ideation that define product strategy, all the way to translating that into high fidelity designs, this role will give you the chance to have a huge impact on the product from day 1. 
 
Your time will be spent getting deep into the core problems we're trying to solve, working closely  with the founding team and engineers to shape the product direction. You're equally happy in front of a (virtual) whiteboard hashing out ideas as you are when working through ideas in Figma.
 
You will have a deep obsession with how humans interact with computers visually, physically and using voice. Some of your key responsibilities:
 
- Design Riff's look, sound and feel.
- Craft your designs and prototypes into beautiful and functional interfaces, working side by side with engineers to ship improvements directly to our customers.
- Build, ship, and analyse features to test new hypotheses about human interaction and collaboration.
- Shape our product direction by participating in UX interviews, roadmap planning, and feature brainstorms.
- Help us grow the team by interviewing and coaching new hires.
 
## How do we know you're the perfect match?
 
- You understand that great design is built on principles and trade-offs, every decision you take has a consequential impact on another part of the product.
- You care deeply about getting the end to end experience right through an obsessive attention to detail.
- You're comfortable talking about your work, both verbally and in writing, to team-mates and stakeholders.
- You cherish user feedback as a tool to help craft the best possible experiences.
- You are excited by products that will transform the way we work, live and connect with one another for the better.
 
We believe that the best products are built by teams of smart, motivated people from diverse backgrounds.
 
We've worked with people who've been artists, writers, musicians, astrophysicists, chemists, doctors, psychologists and mathematicians. Some who've come through traditional higher education and others who have traveled a different path.
 
We want talented Product Designers but we don't care how you got there. Join us if you believe in the power of technology to change society for the better.
