Product engineering and design

We are building a small and ambitious UX team. We are looking for an engineer who loves amazing design and a designer who loves to code experiences and interfaces.

About the product UX team

We believe the best product teams are made up of engineers and designers who take the opportunity to learn from and build on each other's work. We value a sharp attention to detail and are looking for members of our tribe who share this value! We love working with folks who have a passion for making the impossible possible. If you love developer tooling and making the lives of operators easier through great user experience excites you, please apply!

About the roles

We are looking for a UX Engineer who focuses on things like HTML, CSS, & JavaScript, semantics and accessibility, frameworks, architecture, preprocessors, responsive design, backend development, testing and debugging, package management, build tools, version control, CI/CD, etc.

We are looking for a UX Designer who focuses on things like user and market research, personas and scenarios, information architecture, wireframes, prototyping (light HTML, CSS, & JavaScript), and usability testing.

This team will take complex ideas and make them simple for users to understand and use intuitively. We work directly with our customers to provide solutions for their needs. You will be working primarily on the user-facing interfaces like our API and management dashboard.

Requirements

  • Understanding of cloud technologies/infrastructure
  • Front-end experience (HTML, CSS, and JS)
  • Backend experience (primarily for the UX Engineer role)
  • Experience using Git and terminal
  • Attention to detail and a great sense of design taste for building intuitive interfaces and experiences that are awesome to use
  • Experience with design and collaboration tools like Figma, Sketch or XD and Abstract or Invision
  • Experience with prototyping tools like Framer or Principle

We expect you to have detailed knowledge of preferred languages, tools, or systems, but that you are also able to quickly pick up new ones as needed. And while experience is essential, enthusiasm and interest can outweigh experience. We are willing to take a chance on people who want to step up.

Oxide is based in Emeryville, California, but we support remote work as well.

PS Do you know someone who makes you better at what you do and has helped you achieve things you couldn't imagine achieving on your own? Someone who has motivated and inspired you? Someone who complements your strengths and makes up for your weaknesses? Stripe experimented with this. They called it BYOT — Bring Your Own Team. In the end, it didn't work for them — coordinating career moves for one person is complicated enough. That said, if you are applying for one of these roles and know the peanut butter to your jelly, please let us know because we'd love to meet them.

Apply now! We look forward to hearing from you!
