Vokal is creating products for the next billion users (read as Indian Language Internet users).

Vokal is a Q&A based knowledge sharing platform in 11 Indian languages. We have the potential to cater to over 500 million users over the next 2 years. Most of the content on the internet is in English. However, majority of the new smartphone users in India (expected to swell to 800 million by 2021) don't speak English. There's a scarcity of content in Indian languages. Vokal bridges this gap by enabling the best minds in India to share their knowledge in their mother tongue - and all of this is shared using voice & video answers. We are probably one of the first few in the world to have innovated voice & video answers vs text answers (the norm worldwide).

We're looking at hiring a designer who can:
- Understand user insights & requirements
- Translate requirements into user friendly designs
- Design testing with users
- Get designs executed with engineers
- Analyse data & iterate with a higher conversion funnel in mind

The designer should be:
- An avid user of creator first products like Twitter & Quora
- Open to unlearning and learning
- An easy to work with personality

Reporting:
The designer will report directly to the founder.

Why you should apply:
- The joy of building one of the few products in India that can be used by 500 million Indians
- Creating a product for vernacular India (one of the largest segments in the world & one of the most difficult segments too)
- Getting the opportunity to work with a very high caliber team that builds products ground up

Who won't fit culturally:
- Anyone who feels like they know it all. This role requires the humility to understand that there's a lot to be learnt about this user.
- Anyone who is stubborn and has a high ego
- Anyone who is impatient to try multiple experiments to see what works
