Make something great.
Opportunities for greatness are rare. This is one of them.
We’re looking for a senior/director-level software product designer to lead the creation of things that have never been seen before. You’ll have space to think, iterate, and own the details. You’ll be challenged and supported by some of the best designers and technologists in the world. There is nothing to stop you from doing the best work of your life, for an audience of millions.
Equal parts storyteller and craftsperson.
We’re looking for someone with deep experience bringing digital products to life in iOS and on the web—someone who can think strategically from a high level, yet is a maker at heart—comfortable going deep on the details of visual, interaction, and motion design. This is an opportunity to work with a world-class team that spans mobile, web, and hardware. We’re looking for someone who doesn’t settle for easy answers; who can simplify the complex; create beauty from nothing; and build apps that people love to use every day.
Driver. The ability to identify and focus on the biggest challenges and push through uncertainty. We don’t manage people.
Leader. An independent thinker who doesn’t just follow trends but finds unique insights and opportunities.
Maker. A craftsperson who values doing over saying and has a mastery of the modern tools for designing the highest quality products on the latest technology.
Collaborator. Have an understanding and respect for all disciplines and are a great listener and communicator. Harmonious products reflect the teams that build them.
Learner. A lifelong learner with a fearless curiosity to take meaningful risks, experiment with new approaches, and improve on your mistakes.
Taste-Maker. A refined sense of taste and an insatiable drive to make things better. You consistently set a higher bar.
Our Designer to Engineer Ratio is 1:1.
We make great products that seamlessly blend design and technology. We make tools that magically link head, heart, and hand. Tools so essential, we really can’t imagine working without them. Our ambition is no less than to change the way people create.
A year ago, we launched "Paper by FiftyThree," the simplest and most beautiful way to create on the iPad. Since then, Paper has been downloaded millions of times and has been honored with the Apple Design Award, Crunchies Award for Best Design, AIGA Award, IxDA Award, Communication Arts Award, How Design Award, and Apple’s App of the Year.
We’re honored by the love, but there’s still much to do.
It’s in the act of making things that we figure out who we are. Austin Kleon
