Full Time
Fountain is a hiring automation platform that helps companies hire better hourly workers faster — think delivery companies, retail, call centers, and service marketplaces. Fountain is committed to helping businesses grow and people find jobs. We are revolutionizing the way companies have traditionally hired using automated tools and machine learning.
What we build fundamentally affects the way people across the world work. Our mission is to maximize efficiency and unlock economic opportunity in the labor market.
We are a young company backed by top investors, including Y Combinator, SoftTech VC, Crosslink, Origin Ventures, and many others.

In this role you will be involved in all aspects of the product development process, from brainstorming the next great product innovation to tweaking pixels right before launch. You will utilize your full range of skills from research, ideation, interaction design, and visual design. As one of our Product Designers you'll be working on candidate and customer-facing interfaces on mobile, web, and beyond. There is an emphasis on visual design for this role, but having UX and interaction design experience is also preferred.

As a Product Designer, you'll be responsible for UI/UX design but also play a key role in ideation, road-mapping, analysis, feature design, and the quality of our products. The team you’ll work with is small, nimble and has a direct impact across the whole product platform.
