Location:
Earth. While Planetary is based in New York City, you can work from wherever you like.

About you:
You're an experienced designer: obsessed with detail, fond of grids, and excited about the web. You do your best work on teams, and feel comfortable driving the process from start to finish.

About us:
Planetary is a New York City-based product studio where happiness, empathy, and exploration are our core values. We want to inspire our clients and build products that will make them (and their customers) successful. We began as a remote team and, as such, have a comfortable forward-thinking work environment including:
- Flexible hours and autonomy over your time
- A virtual workspace (we use Slack)
- Freedom to travel

The Position:
We work with a variety of clients on a range of projects requiring different tools, libraries, and approaches. We're looking for someone who can be a leader and a collaborator as we add to and diversify our team. As a lead designer, you’d coordinate the team in the design process, pushing everyone to create highly-polished and technically-sound user interfaces.

In short, you should:
- have at least 5 years of team-based experience designing user interfaces
- work quickly, research thoroughly, question assumptions, and iterate often
- seek feedback and contributions from other designers and developers
- feel comfortable working directly with clients

We'd love to hear about your:
- past design work
- preferred prototyping tools
- favorite travel experience

Please send along a link to a GitHub account, portfolio, and/or examples of past work.

Benefits:
We're big on work/life balance — you should be able to enjoy what you do and do what you enjoy. To that end, we emphasize flexible hours, remote working, and generous paid time off.
