Product & User Experience
Astorian is a fast-growing marketplace creating technology for property managers and contractors — an underserved market. We seamlessly connect users so that buildings go from broken to pristine more efficiently than ever before. Our customers are often forgotten by innovators and are forced to rely on outdated technology, or no technology at all. That’s why we are hiring a designer who is committed to delivering innovative solutions for a neglected market.
As the lead product designer, you will craft a product that consistently delivers an amazing experience to our users. By turning complex, manual work into sleek solutions, you will have the opportunity to transform how this industry operates. Your impact at this early stage will be pivotal for cultivating our brand ethos. If you’re looking to be a leader at a company that truly values design in everything we do, then apply today.
