Loom Design

Design is a vital organization at Loom. By radically improving the experience of recording and sharing quick video messages, we are creating a new and more humane way of communicating at work. This requires us to think big and to discover and explore uncharted territory. That's why we're focused on building a diverse, and resilient design organization, full of talented people who love feedback and collaboration. Loom is a remote-first company, and Design is no exception: we're hiring the best Designers, Researchers, and Writers from around the world, wherever they are.


The Role

We're hiring a Product Designer to work on our Creator Experience team. This team ideates, designs, and builds for the post-recording creator experience, which includes editing, packaging, and adding context to loom videos. This area of work greatly impacts how effective loom videos are for their viewers, and this team is responsible for pushing the boundaries of how loom can provide a more automatic and expressive communication experience that helps creators feel confident and excited about sharing their message.


You’ll work on features that help the creator shine, from helping them recover from mistakes to aiding them in adding the context that improves communication with their viewers. Some example features might include video chaptering, customization features like suggested links or thumbnails, or new ways for creators to collaborate with their viewers like engagement polls.


Responsibilities

  • Design our playback, editing, and packaging experiences for our web app, and collaborate with the the Capture and Viewer Experience teams to ensure a seamless user experience.
  • Be a key part of a well-rounded team of Design, PM and Engineering.
  • Contribute to the Lens Design System
  • Work cross-functionally with Product and Engineering partners to represent the design team, and give feedback in critique, roadmapping, sprint planning, and product and design Slack channels.
  • Recruit and interview new Product Designers, and actively improve our inclusive design hiring process.

What We're Looking For

  • Experience in Product Design organizations that have shipped software to users, working closely with product and engineering teammates to develop the strategy and rationale for features.
  • An outstanding portfolio, with presentable case studies showcasing a foundation in interaction and visual design, product sense, and idea generation.
  • Experience collaborating with a diverse team in a rapid growth environment. Huge plus if you’ve worked with remote teammates and understand the communication patterns of working with highly distributed teams.
  • A learning and growth mindset: We’re an early-stage startup, and our team size and our design process will evolve and change many times over the next few years. We strive to continuously improve, iterate, and integrate what we learn — from our work and with each other.
  • Experience with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions.
  • Empathy and resilience: empathy for our customers, to build a product and a service they’ll love. Empathy for our coworkers, to build a workplace we’ll love. Resilience to be able to take feedback from anywhere, consider it gracefully, and fold it into your thinking and your work.
  • Excellent written, verbal, and storytelling skills.

How We Work


Freedom and Flexibility: At Loom, we believe work is an act, not a place. When we disengage work from a location, we can accommodate a broad range of life choices. You can choose to work from home or while you travel. We are able to hire across the United States and are continuing to expand our international presence. And you are free to move within a country without any adjustment to compensation.


Engaging Workday: The key to an engaging workday is finding the right balance between different ways to work sync, async, text and video. Loom makes it easier for us to say what we mean without having to schedule a zoom meeting or struggle to find the right words. And using async communication allows us to free up time for deep work every day. We believe there's a place for sync time - often a conversation on Zoom is exactly what is needed. For team meetings, this ‘sync time’ is typically between 9AM-Noon PT given where the overlap of timezones where Loommates are located.


Work-Rest Balance: The way we balance the fast-paced demands of a high-growth startup and sustainability is making rest a priority. We offer a flexible PTO policy so you're able to take time off when you need it. We also go fully offline for Summer Break around 4th of July and between Christmas and New Years. Rest is also part of the workday, not just during PTO. Taking a break for personal commitments, whether it's watching the kids or getting some exercise is a natural part of the workday.


Social Connection: Relationships and connectedness matter. We are intentional about building trust and relationships through unique, shared experiences. Our virtual workspace keeps us connected day-to-day whether it's through Looms celebrating wins or our buzzing Slack communities. Loommates are able to meet in person with their teams at least twice a year purely for fun. We have also built local offices for those who want to work or meet in person, starting with San Francisco and New York City.
