Sr. UX Designer

Full-time

Who we are
At Mayvenn, we are creating the future of salon retail--one hairstylist at a time. Our mission is to empower hairstylists and salon professionals while changing the way people purchase hair extensions and interact with hair companies. The African-American haircare industry grosses $9 billion annually, but the beauticians we entrust to make us look and feel good every single day aren't receiving the value they deserve: that's where we come in.
 
We've experienced tremendous growth since our founding in 2013: our platform has grown into a nationwide movement of over 50,000+ stylists, hundreds of thousands of customers, and millions of dollars invested back into salons across the country.
 
We’re a fun, passionate, and growing team based in both San Francisco and Oakland, with a huge focus on customer service and brand trust. Our group of insanely talented,
engaged, and ambitious problem solvers' love coming to work every day and have been the key to our success. As a result, demand is at an all-time high and we’re looking for
inspiring people to join us. If you're up for the challenge, we'd love to hear from you!
