Design Lead

Brickblock - Berlin

4 months ago

Cryptocurrencies are volatile as hell. With Brickblock you can buy real-world assets like Real Estate or ETFs and pay in Ethereum. If there's a crypto bloodbath the next day: You don't care anymore. Because you're now invested in Real Estate. Simple as that.

YOU THINK IN EXPERIENCES

You understand the difference between interface and experience. Your design toolkit enables you to describe what an experience is, and you are comfortable describing things that happen on-screen, off-screen, in people's heads, between individuals, and in the spaces we inhabit.

YOU EXPRESS YOURSELF VISUALLY

Thinking visually comes naturally to you. You love to take the abstract and make it visual. You have a litany of tools at your disposal: motion graphics, sketching, and of course pixel-perfect screen designs. What results is an interface that reinforces brand and technology, and creates usable, useful and desirable experiences.

YOU PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL

You often notice tiny details in products that others don’t notice. Be it a gentle but almost unnoticeable transition in an interface, the finish of a certain material in a physical product or the use of a positively quirky emoji in a push notification.

COLLABORATION IS YOUR BEST METHOD

You enjoy engaging other people on your team to generate and evaluate ideas and to produce executed work. You know that design is about launching and working constructively with people across all phases of development.

SHOW AND DO TELL

You’re able to compellingly present work and to persuade others. But you’re also open to being persuaded of other’s ideas.

YOU LEARN, YOU STRETCH

Even if you're not expert at the things listed above, you are interested in expanding your skills as a designer, learning from your peers and from your own practice. You listen to feedback, you pursue improvement, and you give yourself room to feel satisfied with what you've accomplished.

SOME COLD HARD FACTS

  • This is a senior role. You must have a minimum of 5 years’ experience designing interfaces for at least web and mobile.
  • You will work from our office in Kreuzberg. We offer relocation packages.
  • You must have previous copywriting experience in a related field
  • Experience conducting in-person user studies
  • HTML and CSS knowledge would be excellent. Experience with JavaScript or React would blow our minds. A deep understanding of Blockchain and Smart Contracts may bring us to tears.
  • An interest in marketing and managing social media would be an added bonus.

WHERE BRICKBLOCK IS AT

This role is best suited for a person who is highly interested in fundamental product definition and execution. Other startups have running products and engaged audiences; our founders are giving the design team the mandate to help arrive at exactly that. This sort of task is not for everybody since we are discovering constraints and opportunities as we go.

Today we have two designers. In a year or two, we'll have many more. If with your help, we build this design team right, our work will be highly visible and our team will be one that great designers will be dying to join. What would you do to help make that happen?

We are a stable company. We have conducted a successful multi-million dollar ICO and still own 100% of the company, and we have a team of engineers that are among the best crypto team in Berlin. Our team is serious about success, and you should be too.

TL;DR

We believe there are few levers as powerful as design by which to impact a product, a company, or the world. So we are looking for a great designer to work with us to take Brickblock to the next level.
