Job Description

Monaeo’s mission is to help 50 million business travelers cross borders with peace of mind. When employees travel across states and countries, it creates significant tax, immigration and personal security risks. Most companies lack automated systems to protect their employees from these risks when they are on the road. Monaeo is changing that. We are building tools for business travelers that re-imagine the way location data can be used to keep them safe when they are on the road.

The design & engineering problems we are trying to solve are challenging, and I am sure you would agree if you were to see it in action. This would be an opportunity for you to have significant independence, work on challenging problems, define the design process, and have immediate & tangible impact. We are a profitable business, have peers that inspire us every day, a collaborative environment, bias for each team member to have lots of independence, 40+ well known enterprise customers (like Snapchat), provide good benefits, and work out of a beautiful space with a terrace.

The Role

As a designer, you have a strong technical background and work closely with Engineering to design products that are simple but great for the user. You love crafting what others love using. Using your keen design sensibility you create experiences and conduct experiments with users to continuously improve the product based on real behavior.
