Lead Product Designer

Job Description

At Linear, we are on a mission to create a new standard for modern software development. We are building the tools that empower the next generation of high-impact companies to do their best work. Linear is designed based on the practices and processes that distinguish world-class product teams from the rest: relentless focus, fast execution, and a commitment to the quality of craft.

Founded in 2019, Linear has become the default tool of choice for high-performance teams to build their products.

We are designing it to be highly functional, yet minimalistic and delightful. We expect a broad set of design skills, and ability to create high-quality designs, interactions and prototypes. For these first designer roles, we are looking for people with several years of experience working in cross-functional product teams and creating interactive products and applications.
