Do you enjoy solving complex problems with elegant solutions? Are you able to operate with a ton of autonomy, yet love collaboration with teammates? Do you value seeing your hard work make an immediate impact on customers? Do you love telling stories about why you made design choices? If you answer “yes” to these questions, then let’s talk!
We are looking for an experienced product designer. What does that mean at Openly? It means you will be leading the design efforts on all of our custom-built applications. You’ll be responsible for making sure the user’s experience follows a defined strategy and is intuitive, simple, and delightful.

- Adhere to best practices and fundamentals of responsive and accessible digital design
- Contribute to the betterment and evolution of Openly processes
- At least 4 years of experience working as a Product Designer or UX/UI Designer or similar roles
