  • Proven experience managing a large high performing team of designers
  • Strong communication and influencing skills - ability to act as a design evangelist and effectively align the wider business with your vision 
  • Experience as a design generalist who is capable of applying a high and holistic quality bar to all our products
  • Clear track record of creating market leading products which were loved by customers
  • Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • Social events: Fun and regular company events to relax and connect with teammates
  • A bit about us:

    Unique blockchain assets (“NFTs”) have grown in popularity rapidly over the past few months. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items to digital art to music and financial instruments. However, they are highly illiquid: transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Etherum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined. 

    To solve this problem for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees without compromising user custody. The goal of Immutable X is to help businesses scale their creation and trading of these unique assets (“NFTs”).

    Additional Information:

    Immutable is committed to building and fostering an inclusive, diverse workplace. We believe in incorporating everyone’s perspectives and experiences as this has been a significant driver in our success so far.

    For this reason, we strongly encourage candidates of all backgrounds to get in touch. Even if you don’t meet all the requirements of a job listing, do yourself (and us) a favour by still applying! It’s highly likely you’ll bring something to the workplace that we haven’t thought of yet, and we would love to hear from you.
