Introduction
We’re here to make room for people in the modern workplace. We create thoughtful designs that inspire new ideas, fresh perspectives, and a better way to work. Our first product is a soundproof phone booth for the open office. It takes away the noise and makes room for what’s essential. We deliver directly from factory to business and keep prices low so that our clients can invest in bigger ideas down the road. We rethink and refine every step of the customer experience to offer thoughtful, modular solutions that grow with the business, leading the way to better Mondays and a brighter future.

Since launching in May 2018, we’ve acquired over 2000 clients, ranging from budding startups to Fortune 500 companies, such as JP Morgan, Nike, Google, and Salesforce. We’re backed by Slow Ventures and notable angel investors from Silicon Valley, and TIME named our product one of the Best Inventions of 2018. 

About the role:
With our first product, ROOM One, we offer a moment of peace to everyone who has ever taken a phone call in the hallway, finished a spreadsheet in the quiet time at midnight, or sat alone in the stairwell to be alone and think big thoughts. As we begin to expand our product offering, we are looking for a rockstar product designer who lives and breathes user-centric design, is passionate about sustainability, and has the skill to ensure our products remain the most attractive ones on the market.

  • Specify CMF (colors, materials, finish) for new products.
  • Ability to synthesize an understanding of customer behavior, our brand, and market trends into a story and a product.

Who you are:

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
