Squad is a new way to communicate with your friends––sharing screens and chatting live on video together. It’s the next best thing to hanging out IRL. Our novel approach makes screen time more connective and collaborative for Gen Z.
Our mission is to reduce loneliness by bringing people together to engage in meaningful and fun experiences.
We are a distributed team with a hub in San Francisco. The company has raised more than $5 million in funding from leading investors including First Round Capital, Y Combinator, BBG Ventures and Gary Vaynerchuk. Visit us at squadapp.io to try out the app on iOS or Android.
We’re looking for our first Product Designer. You’ll have tremendous impact on product strategy, and you’ll take ownership of all aspects of the design process—including wireframing, prototyping, UX, and visual design. You’ll touch every piece of the product to make Squad delightful, engaging and performative.
You’ll collaborate closely with our founders and will report to the CEO.
This is a unique opportunity for someone who will relish the challenge of defining the foundation of our product, and the culture of our company.
We’re a creative, diverse and fast-moving team that’s passionate about building the future of social communication. If you are driven by ownership and impact, we’d love to hear from you!
