Design Lead

Job description

Oven Bits is seeking a full-time Design Lead to facilitate the IA, UX, UI and IxD strategy on large scale design projects (mobile and web, 40+ screens). Beyond UX strategy and pixels, it’s important for this person to effectively work with and at times lead a remote team, communicate well with enterprise-level clients and have a genuine enthusiasm for their craft!

We’re looking for someone who understands how to take ideas and create world-class experiences on every device. Our team is passionate about creating world-class apps (like this, this and this) and we want you to make us even better. If this sounds like it might fit what you’re looking for too, read on, and get in touch.

Player Coaches

Great people should be empowered to be great. We’re looking for someone who wants to make big things and shape how they’re built. Self-starting initiative and an enthusiasm for life are core characteristics across the Oven Bits team. We’re looking for a leader who likes to architect large-scale software while also getting their hands in the code.

A Passion For Solving Problems

Our clients have real businesses with real customers, real opportunities and real pain points. We quickly learn their external model plus internal workings. We discern opportunities through empathetic listening and consultative strategy. Our customers view us as trusted advisors and thought leaders. This role materially shapes the products, platforms and features that our award-winning team will produce.


We work within numerous levels of mid-to-large companies. It takes a strong relational range to connect with Directors, VPs and C-suites alike. We want someone that can read a room, relate to different people and discern what matters to each of their roles when communicating solutions.

We’re proud to have a portfolio of work that viewed by millions of people every week and that’s been featured 25+ times in the Apple App Store and Google Play. At the end of the day, we view this as our life’s work and not just our work life.
