Senior UI & UX Designer

About us

In 2015, we created a project called the Serverless Framework. Our mission was to make serverless development easy.  A community rallied behind the project and the broader serverless movement, contributing to the open source core, offering their opinions and insights, and sharing their passion.  Today, the Serverless Framework is the de facto standard for serverless deployments, managing nearly one million deployments per month.

As the adoption of serverless has grown, so too have the needs of today’s serverless teams. In addition to tooling that simplifies the development of serverless applications, these teams need tools to simplify operations.  They need logs and metrics, they need team collaboration, they need ways to integrate with legacy systems, and so much more. To address these needs we recently launched the Serverless Platform.

We are looking for a UI/UX Designer to extend the simple and elegant user experience that fueled the adoption and growth of the Serverless Framework across all components of the Serverless Platform product line.  Our tight knit team is comprised of user focused, product minded technologists who are low on drama and high on performance. We are distributed by location but united in our purpose. We value accountability and fully own our successes and failures.  Most importantly, we believe that people do their best work when empowered. If you are on a journey to find a team that crafts ingenious cutting edge solutions while having fun together, we are your destination.
