MagicBell is a B2B SaaS startup addressing the products' notification challenges. Earlier this year, we graduated from Y Combinator and raised $4.5m in seed funding. Some of the best startups like Pitch use MagicBell to power their notifications. Please read our blog post on why we are working on MagicBell.
We are post-revenue and growing fast. We pay well and offer meaningful equity with a 10-year exercise window (more on that in the offer). The founders have scaled startups previously and are backed by some of the smartest entrepreneurs in the world. Read more on our about page.
We strive hard to create a remote, fun, high-growth work environment in which ambitious people can thrive. Please look at our careers page to learn more about our work culture, values, and your day-to-day.
We care a lot about design and brand. Even as an early-stage startup, we have worked hard to establish our brand. It's reflected in our web presence, marketing efforts, and product.
As our founding product designer, you will help us lay the foundation for long-term product growth. You will work on both our dashboard (that our customers use) and the inbox (that their customers use).
This excellent blog post from First Round Review captures the essence of this role well. In particular, this quote:
"Early-stage employees are chefs at small restaurants — they're always changing the menu and trying new things. Working at a big company is like being a sushi chef — you cut the same fish every single day. People who thrive in uncertain situations, are comfortable with a lack of structure, and can context-switch are good first designer candidates for startups. The best environment for you really depends on your mindset," said Phin Barnes, Board Partner at First Round
As we grow, the opportunity to manage a team of designers will surface. However, if you'd rather be a high-performing individual contributor, that's fine with us too.
These requirements have been selected to make sure you'd be successful at the job. Please read them carefully:

MagicBell is the notification inbox for web & mobile apps.
As consumers of many apps, we have personally experienced the growing volume of notifications, many of which add to our anxiety. MagicBell is on a mission to end this chaos and help every app deliver a stellar notification experience.
We do this by offering a beautifully designed notification inbox that apps can embed in their products in minutes. We do all the heavy lifting related to real-time delivery & syncing, web & mobile push notifications, email notifications, and even notification preference management.
We sit at an interesting intersection of a dev tool & a productivity tool for end-users. We are helping every app make its users more productive!
MagicBell embraces diversity - one of the founders is a transgender woman, and another a Latino (Hola!). They are experienced programmers and entrepreneurs and have built a successful SaaS business in the past. With a decade of working remotely under their belt, they understand how to work across time zones asynchronously.
