Design is Joy. It’s what people remember. It’s what people feel. It’s what makes our customers fall in love over and over again. It’s the little things, the intangibles and it’s a part of everything we do. We believe design is not just how the product looks and feels but what it does. We prefer simple over complicated. Humans over robots. If you agree, join us.
Joy is looking for a product designer to join our founding design team. The ideal candidate is someone who's passionate about product design but doesn’t shy away from wearing many hats.

Someone who loves collaboration, giving and receiving feedback, communicates clearly, listens and empathizes with multiple points of view, and cares about the fit and finish or every detail of the product.
