Full-time
About Framework
At Framework, our mission is to fix consumer electronics. We believe products can be better both for users and the environment. Unlike most electronics products on the market today, ours are designed to be repairable and upgradeable to enable long usage lifetimes and deep personalization.

To support our product ecosystems, we are also launching a marketplace allowing users to buy and sell new and used devices and parts.

We come from successful consumer electronics startups including the founding team of Oculus and e-commerce companies, and we’re funded to fulfill our mission. We care deeply about building a diverse and inclusive team, and we hope you do too!

The Position
We are looking for a skilled UX/UI designer to join our Marketplace team to own and drive the usability and aesthetics of our platform. We want our digital products to be as interesting and easy to use as our physical ones. This is the first design role in the company, so you'll have an enormous amount of ownership and responsibility on Framework's design strategy going forward. This position will report to our Head of Marketplace and will work closely with our development partner based in Europe.

We’re headquartered in Burlingame, CA, and are open to local, relocated, or remote candidates.
