Product Designer

We're looking for passionate designers who love creating solid and usable designs

This position has now been filled. We’ve had a lot of interest and we're thrilled to see so much talent applying to join our team. We look forward to opening more opportunities in the future and would like to thank everyone who has applied. Thank you for considering working with Capsule!

Capsule is one of the most popular CRM applications on the web, helping thousands of small businesses and sales teams take care of customers. Our well funded and profitable company is growing fast.

As an Product Designer at Capsule, you’ll contribute to all phases of our design process to create intuitive, clean and modern interfaces. You’ll be responsible for determining how the UI looks and how it works. Working alongside other designers and collaborating with design leadership, you’ll help us to implement a consistent look and feel across our desktop and mobile applications.

You’ll help not only to make Capsule look great but work to solve user experience problems with a wider product mindset and adding value by enhancing ways our users interact with our applications. Coming very much from the ‘Don’t make me think’ school of thought, we aim for design that is timeless and user-centered.

You’ll be joining us at an exciting time, working on the next iteration of our UI. You’ll have a lot of flexibility and space for exploration and take direction of your own projects.

  • Have a passion for problem solving
  • Dare to challenge assumptions and aren’t afraid to make mistakes
  • Design solutions accordingly while balancing technical constraints, time requirements and business goals
  • Can effectively communicate conceptual ideas, detailed design, and design rationale verbally and visually to a variety of audiences within Capsule
  • Are motivated by ‘why’ not just the ‘what’ of design
  • Constantly seek and respectfully provide design feedback
  • You’re a creative at heart and never stop learning
