About Contra
Contra is a professional network for the independent digital workforce. Digital professionals use Contra to create stunning visual profiles, earn money commission-free, and build high-quality professional communities and referral networks. Contra was started by a group of independents who were tired of existing professional networks that are blind to the needs of digital professionals. We’re creating a new way to work for the independent digital workforce.


Role Background
We’re growing our team of passionate people who are reimagining the future of work. As a Junior Product Designer at Contra, you’ll have your hands in all aspects of the design process. Because of this, you should have a broad set of design skills and be eager to learn.


How you’ll add value at Contra:
  • Collaborate with Product to identify user and business needs
  • Design feature flows, high-fidelity visuals in Figma, and interactive prototypes that ship quickly
  • Work closely with Engineering to ensure high quality implementation
  • Add to our growing design system
  • Contribute your design thinking skills to other touchpoints (marketing, social, etc.)
  • You’ll be an integral part of our small but mighty design team!

You’ll be successful here if you:
  • Thrive in a remote-first environment
  • Are self-driven and have strong communication skills
  • Are curious and eager to expand your skill set
  • Have a keen interest in product (UX/UI) but also enjoy marketing and brand design
  • Are passionate about creating products that are simple and usable but also polished and elegant
  • Deliver transparent, honest, and direct feedback to your peers on an early-stage product
  • Enjoy participating in all parts of the product process, not just designing
  • Are located in a timezone within 3 hours of San Francisco
  • Are fluent in verbal and written English
If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, but you’re passionate about what we’re building, please apply! Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of a role’s requirements.


How Contra can add value for you:
  • Remote-first culture
  • Competitive salary + equity
  • Healthcare for employees
  • Generous vacation policy + paid holidays off
  • Flexible parental leave
  • Flexibility to choose employee or contractor status
