Hi, Hello! 👋

Want to join a diverse and exciting team that will revolutionize how the world thinks about digital brand identity? You’re in the right place. 

At HiHello we have created The Software Platform for Digital Brand and Identity. This platform enables companies of all sizes to leverage digital business cards, email signatures and virtual backgrounds to present their brand consistently in every interaction—whether that is in-person, over email, or on video.

HiHello is venture-backed and was co-founded in 2018 by Dr. Manu Kumar, who previously founded Carta and CardMunch and invested in companies like Lyft, Twilio, Auth0, LucidChart, and Everlaw. HiHello’s customers span thousands of companies worldwide and across all industry segments. Every month, over a million HiHello cards are shared helping people to connect and grow their professional network while also helping to #savetheplanet.

HiHello’s team comprises a diverse group of kind and respectful individuals across the Americas. We believe in working hard, having fun, inspiring greatness, helping others, embracing kindness, learning and leading, living and working flexibly, and communicating openly.

Do you think you can help us get to the next level? We’d love to talk!

Who we’re looking for:

Design matters. A lot. We know it. We can tell good design when we see it.

We want an awesome designer to join our super early stage team. The responsibilities would span *all* aspects of design. Really – you'll get to touch everything, from interaction design, usability testing, information architecture, product flows, storyboards, low fi & hi fi prototypes, mobile app design on Android and iOS, Web app design to offline interaction when people exchange cards and meet new people.

Want to work at a tiny startup where you can learn at breakneck speed and actually have an impact on the direction of the product and the company? You will also get to learn from people who have founded multiple successful startups in the past and be actively engaged in solving a problem that almost every working professional encounters.

You should understand and thrive in a fast-paced environment, where changing requirements and priorities are a constant. You aren't afraid of trying new things but know when to pull back on something when it doesn't add value. You’re comfortable working with a remote team and using synchronous and asynchronous communications to collaborate effectively.
