Just four years in, 25% of young women in the US (18-25) have downloaded Co–Star. Our growth has been entirely through word of mouth—we’ve never spent money on ads. We have millions of active users, raised $21,000,000 from the people behind companies like Twitter, Discord, and Snap, and launched our second paid feature. 

For thousands of years, astrology has given people the tools to reflect and connect in real, meaningful ways. Co–Star brings astrology into the 21st century with an app users call their “best friend” and therapists recommend to their clients. Astrology is a deterministic system based on the time it takes a planet to orbit the sun. It's more like folk developmental psychology than it is like fortune cookies. Using NASA data interpreted by humans, Co–Star delivers personalized readings in real time. Our AI strings human-written snippets together to generate hyper-personalized interpretations of planetary movements for millions of people.

We're looking for a Senior Product Designer to design new features and products for the Co–Star app. You’ll help tens of millions of people connect to each other and themselves – through astrology – in real, meaningful ways. This is a full-time position reporting to our Design Manager. You can be remote (USA-based only) and/or work from our New York City headquarters in SoHo. Travel to NYC may be required up to 13% of the year. 

Everything we design, we design for us and our friends. Throughout the design process—from creating user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes—we envision how people will experience our products, and bring that vision to life in a way that feels inspired, refined, and even magical.

User experience is at the forefront of how we create intuitive, innovative, and beautiful products that people love. We strive to learn and understand our users’ needs, behaviors, and emotions to gather insights that inform product strategy and design. We take complex systems and make them intuitive and easy-to-use for tens of millions of people around the globe. And most importantly, we ensure that the technology we use is a means, not an end, that brings relationships closer together. 

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate with product managers, engineers, and cross-functional stakeholders to design creative, thoughtful solutions and build concise user-centric prototypes, simplifying complex problems and driving projects toward clarity
  • Investigate customer needs using a whole spectrum of tools, from user and market research to data analytics, to create an informed understanding of our users, their contexts, and their cultures
  • Work collaboratively & cross-functionally to produce & deliver high quality designs, from wireframes to high fidelity screens
  • Collaborate with multidisciplinary teams to translate concepts into designed user interfaces
  • Elevate design quality through building design thinking culture throughout the team
  • Support a collaborative culture, setting standards for execution and operational excellence
  • Provide creative and holistic thinking across devices, surfaces and cross-missions
  • Be called upon to work or consult on a wide range of things like brand projects or rapid prototypes for testing

What you'll bring

  • 5+ years of experience in product design (bonus points for native mobile design)
  • A beautiful portfolio showcasing UX as well as UI work :) 
  • Intuition for how a product should look, feel and work, and an understanding of what people need and want in the digital space and in real life
  • Openness to working in an ambiguous and dynamic environment and comfortable with non-hierarchical organizations
  • The ability to efficiently run with a project without close supervision
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and familiarity with technical constraints/limitations when designing for platforms such as desktop and mobile (i.e. Android and iOS)
  • Knowledge of what good design looks like while being able to zoom out and see the broader systems that connects the dots to create a cohesive overall experience

What we offer

  • Fully covered $0 deductible healthcare + vision, dental, and therapy
  • 401(k) + 5% matching
  • Unlimited vacation + 2 week company-wide recharge at the end of each year 
  • Equipment budget 
  • 12 weeks 100% paid parental leave
  • Readings with in-house astrologers
