San Francisco, California
Design
Full Time
Welcome to the Panda Squad!

We are a San Francisco based team that wants to shape the future of visual storytelling and communication using the power of voice. That's why we're making a new state of the art mobile tool that turns the stories you tell into short animated movies. Sound cool? Good! Because we need your help.

Panda listens to the words you say and creates an interactive 3D overlay that can be used in video calls and recordings like none you've seen before. We're sick and tired of the daily popularity contest that plays out on social media and want to make something different.

Panda helps users tell and share stories that can’t be told on other platforms. Stories that are real, relatable, and valuable. How do you tell someone about your breakup or what you were daydreaming about at work with a traditional social media post? Panda wants to makes this possible in a fun and wholly original way.

Our tight-knit and growing team of five comes from a range of diverse backgrounds and cities including New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Together, we’ve spent over a year making Panda a reality and now we need you for what we believe is the next revolution in communication.

As a Product Designer at Panda, you will work closely with our CEO to design new user interfaces and interaction patterns that empower our users to tell meaningful stories in a way that has never been done before. Working on our product team, your ideas will be integral to helping us figure out how to turn the human voice into an incredible new visual communication tool.

Within six months, you’ll have nearly full autonomy to create a product that our users love to use in the way you see fit. You’ll be the biggest advocate for our users and are encouraged to defend your design views even when others disagree. We love a healthy and respectful debate when it gets things done.
