As an Interaction Designer at Gather, you'll have the opportunity to craft game interactions that are not only elegant, intuitive and functional but also playful and charming for our users.

Our team has a unique culture where engineers and designers are both heavily involved in the product process.

Some challenges we're currently thinking about:

  • What is the experience of a Gather user who is in a space persistently but off-tab? How do other users key into this experience?
  • How do we make Gather's social experience as close to real life as possible? How do we dynamically split conversations in a virtual world?
  • How do we represent real life interactions such as attention, moods, and presence in a virtual world?

You have:

  • 3+ years of experience working alongside engineers, product managers and other designers shipping real products
  • A strong command of Figma for prototyping, iterating, and sharing your work
  • Minute attention to detail and a love for using data to build beautiful products for our users
  • The ability to turn limited information and uncertainty into bold, concrete product design decisions
  • A strong desire to shape the future of our design org by making key decisions about direction
  • Excellent communication skills
  • An open, growth mindset when giving and receiving feedback

If you don't fulfill every single requirement, we'd still love to hear from you!

About us

We are building a virtual universe which fundamentally improves how people interact online.

Today, that means a powerful remote-social platform. We already have people working out of our office spaces, attending our virtual conferences, or going to school on our campus spaces. We have folks hosting everything from magic conventions to artist EP launches to thanksgiving dinners, and even a few weddings.

The mission of Gather is to remove physical constraints on peoples' lives, and provide a virtual world which surpasses the real one in interconnectedness, personal touch, and expressiveness.

How's our team doing so far?

In a few short months, we've gone from nothing to millions of page views per month, >1 million monthly users in Gather spaces, and numerous paid events running around the clock. Every day, we hear that this "Pokemon x Zoom thing" is the video calling platform people didn't know they were missing.

Joining Gather means jumping on a fast-moving train where you'll get plenty of agency and the potential to have huge impact in an early-stage platform changing how people live and work. These are unsolved, open ended problems with tons of room (and need) for creativity. Help us take Gather to the next level!
