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 Senior Product Designer at Contra, you’ll collaborate with Engineering, Product, and Community, leading all phases of the design process to build an exceptional product.

  • Communicate and share often in written, verbal, and visual ways to align the team and move the work towards implementation
  • Work closely with Engineering to ensure high quality implementation
  • Own our growing design system
  • Identify ways to improve our product, our design approach, and our processes over time

You’ll be successful here if you:

  • Showcase a portfolio that demonstrates excellence in design
  • Have experience as an independent/freelancer
  • Design exceptional products from start to finish, participating in all phases of design, from definition to development and optimization
  • Have excellent interpersonal communication skills, and deliver transparent, honest, and direct feedback to your peers on an early-stage product
  • Are self-driven and thrive in a remote-first environment
  • Are located in a timezone within 3 hours of San Francisco
  • Are fluent in verbal and written English

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
  • No Meeting Wednesdays
  • Half day every third Friday of the month
  • Themed meetings, games, and other fun team-bonding activities
  • Why join Contra? Hear it from the team:

“It’s really fulfilling to work with such a passionate team to reimagine the future of work. There’s a lot of excitement around what we’re building, but at the same time, it’s balanced with a healthy respect for each other, working async and fully remote.” - Head of Product

“Working at Contra means working with humble and talented peers at the cutting edge of technology and design trends. Being able to contribute to a product with the potential to make work ‘work’ for the individual and empower creatives fills me with joy every single day.” - Frontend Engineer

“Teams that equally value a high-level of emotional intelligence and technical aptitude are seldom found. And yet, Contra is that team: uniquely, every individual truly brings a world-class skill set to the table every day — but it is the collective empathy and awareness built into our culture that makes our pursuit to reimagine the future of work possible, and a joy.” - Frontend Engineer

"It's hard to imagine a more rewarding experience than working on a product you believe in with folks you also believe in." - Backend Engineer
