  • Collaborating with engineers and product managers to research, concept, prototype, and iterate on our products
  • Planning and implementing with product managers and engineers the long-term strategy and short-term tactics for our products
  • Designing, expanding, and maintaining in close collaboration with engineers our product design systems

Experience and skills

Must have

  • 4+ years of design experience at product-driven technology organizations
  • Expertise in Figma and related tools
  • Proven ability to create and manage detailed design systems and libraries
  • A portfolio that showcases web application design, including planning, strategy, and UI/UX
  • Excellent ability to work independently with clear and effective asynchronous team communication

Nice to have

  • Commitment to accessibility and inclusivity in design, ensuring products and work are inclusive for all users.
  • Passion for promoting good design and design culture, along with an openness to sharing design process and insights with colleagues and the public

What we offer

  • A career with purpose: we’re building the infrastructure to unlock climate action at scale
  • True flexibility and autonomy: you plan how, where, and when you work best
    • Work remotely or make use of our office space in Berlin
  • Career development: we’re at the start of our journey so you’ll have the freedom to expand your role as we grow

Commitment to inclusion
