Senior UX and UI Designers for cross-functional product team

Are you looking for a challenge with purpose & meaning? We're looking for experienced UI and UX designers to build a personal growth app which helps people live meaningful lives.

We are looking for 2-3 full-time UX and UI designers to help us combine deep user understanding and research with the best of psychology and technology, in order to bring state-of-the-art, free-of-charge tools for personal growth and human connection to as many people as possible.

What we believe

At 29k, we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. If we can help people live more meaningful lives, they will improve the world through their actions.

To achieve this ambitious goal, we believe in combining the best tools psychology has to offer with the best technology, so that many more people can profit from the existing and new research.

Who we are

29k is a non-profit foundation, with research partners at Karolinska, University of London and Harvard. We are building a free and open-source platform for personal development. Our 3-year goal is to improve the lives of 5 million people, and our long term goal is to reach a threshold where we see systemic change in the world.

Our app (check it out in 🍎 AppStore or 🤖 PlayStore), launched at the beginning of 2020, is funded by philanthropists and partnerships, and thus free for the end-users. Since the release, with very limited marketing, more than 60 000 people from 150+ countries have downloaded the app, and gave it an average rating of 4.8 out of 5.

In product, we work in a self-organising manner — creating, starting and taking responsibilities for initiatives together. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to take ownership and build a team with the different skills and competences we have in the organisation.

What you'll do

Examples of everyday tasks in our product team are:

  • driving ideation phase and concept development of new features;
  • designing user flows, interactions, content structure and navigation;
  • creating intuitive, inspiring, lovable user interfaces;
  • user research planning and facilitation;
  • developing and testing solution prototypes;
  • deciding short-, mid- and long-term strategy for the whole organisation, together with the other teams.

We are now hiring several people to help us with these tasks.

We are looking for strategic and structured UI and UX designers who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in a small team, focused on bringing deep and meaningful personal growth to the world.

It is also an advantage if you:
