Lead Product Designer (Remote)
San Francisco /
TL;DR:We're building a new sleep product & looking for a strong lead product designer to join the team. This is a multidisciplinary role that includes research, interaction design, prototyping, and visual design while working closely with the founder/CEO, Head of Product and engineering team.
Simple Habit, a mental wellness & meditation platform, was created in 2017 by CEO/Founder Yunha Kim. Our mission? To help people live better. In just a couple of years, Simple Habit grew mostly organically to $5M in ARR. Shortly after, we raised $10M in a Series A round. In 2020, based on insights & learnings, Simple Habit decided to build & launch a new product, Sleep Reset. Our mission has stayed the same; to help people live better....but our focus has shifted to solving our users #1 wellness problem, sleep!
Sleep Reset is a "first of its kind" wellness program. We applied proven and effective methods from the Stanford Sleep Clinic and digitized them into one seamless sleep program. These methods are currently administered in person, but we believe and have proven that we can achieve the same outcome, digitally.
Location: We're a fully distributed team of 9 FTEs & 14 contractors, working remotely from both EST & PST time zones.
