Threads - Product Designer

About the role

Threads is hiring a Senior or Staff Product Designer.

At Threads, we place an emphasis on people and craft. We put people first, and value knowledge and influence from different perspectives, disciplines, cultures, and experiences so we can better practice human-centered design. Providing a platform for people to democratize discussions, ideate collaboratively, and creating a space to mindfully respond is just the beginning.

We're building the future of work.

As a Product Designer at Threads, you'll be contributing and collaborating closely with teammates in the Product vertical on our web and desktop platforms. You'll ideate on existing experiences, process feedback, and craft new concepts with folks from different technical roles from beginning-to-end phases.

We're a diverse set of people who collaborate and appreciate designers who are able to communicate their design thinking broadly to the organization, work in lock-step directly with the Product team, and adapt to different workflows.

At 25 people, our company is a small-but-mighty team of product-obsessed makers. We’ve found product/market fit already, and we’re quickly growing our customer-base this year. There’s a ton of opportunity to influence the future of the company, scale + grow our apps, and build features that people use for multiple hours a day.

As an added bonus, we all use Threads for our own work. It’s extremely fulfilling to build a product that we ourselves love and use. This allows us to build deep empathy with our customers and form strong opinions on how our product and platform should work.

  • Work in close collaboration with the Design team to further develop and maintain consistency in our design language.
  • Support younger designers on the team and enable them to grow.
  • Embrace our company culture and vocalize where we can be more inclusive.

What we value

  • You have 5+ years of experience as an individual contributor on a Product Design team.
  • Your portfolio showcases a solid foundation in typography, visual design, interaction design, and product thinking.
  • You value and welcome feedback and discussion from customers and teammates.

About Us

Threads is an all-in-one communication platform designed to help teams fold time. With the help of our growing community, we've been able to fully and repeatedly replace tools like Slack, Discord, and Twist, for companies looking to get more done.

Being constantly interrupted, losing information, or not being confident that you'll be able to catch up comes with a real tax on your ability to think, design, code, and create. With Threads, teams avoid constant interruptions, the pain of keeping up / catching up, and encourage motion over progress.
