GRID 20. Jan 2022 Fullt starf

GRID’s mission is to become the tool of choice for modern teams to explore and explain their world through numbers.

We’re looking for a Visual/Product Designer to join our design team. As a designer at GRID you will be instrumental in shaping every visual aspect of the product, being responsible for end-to-end visuals – shapes, colour, typography and layout. As such, you will collaborate closely with UX designers, developers, product managers, QAs and copywriters to deliver a world-class product to our users.

Are you someone who’s equally comfortable working in quick sketches and pixel perfect designs? Do you want to have a say and shape a new product? Do you have a keen interest in users and product development? Do you enjoy cross-functional collaboration and design conversations? We’d love to hear from you!

You will:

  • Be part of a highly passionate team working on a grand mission.
  • Be in an environment where input and feedback is valued, communication is respectful and every team member is important.
  • Make an impact – helping shape and build a new product.
  • Explore different approaches and communicate designs at various stages of the process – from quick sketches to pixel perfect final designs.
  • Work with, maintain and help evolve our design system.
  • Collaborate closely with other designers, product managers, developers, QAs and copywriters in an end-to-end design process – ensuring design quality and integrity through development and revisions of product improvements.
  • Identify opportunities for improvement in the product and its UI.
  • Help build and shape the design culture at GRID.

This role may suit you if you:

  • Know your way around Figma.
  • Have experience working on digital product UI.
  • Think holistically but love poring over details.
  • Have a strong consideration for usability.
  • Are passionate about shape, colour, typography, layout and have demonstrable knowledge of how to apply this.
  • Enjoy cross-functional collaboration, in-depth design discussions and rapid iteration.
  • Like communicating ideas and designs with a wider audience.
  • Actively seek feedback on your work, incorporating it in design iterations as applicable.
  • Are equally comfortable collaborating with the team to develop an idea as you are with perfecting details of new components in the design system for all to use.
  • Have a good pulse on current design trends and best practices.
  • Want to work in a fast-paced and fluid environment.
  • Have a growth mindset.

Bonus if you:

  • Have UI animation experience
  • Love numbers or want to dive head first into exploring and explaining with numbers.


We work on our designs in Figma, sometimes work on icons in Illustrator, collaborate in Miro, wireframe in various tools, share and test ideas via prototypes and Looms, organise our work in ClickUp, do async communication in Slack and talk a lot on Zoom (and, more recently, in Around). Knowing your way around Figma is a must, meticulously keeping it organised is a definite plus.
