Head of Product Design
At Linear, we are on a mission to bring magic back to software. To empower product teams to do their best work, we are building an issue tracking and project management tool that combines UI elegance with world-class performance. Founded in 2019, Linear has become the platform of choice for thousands of high-impact companies to build their products better.
Linear was set up as a fully remote company from the start. Today, our small but mighty team is distributed across North America and Europe. What unites us is relentless focus, fast execution, and our passion for software craftsmanship. We are all makers at heart and care deeply about the quality of our work.
At its core, Linear is a developer tool where speed, interactions, and small details matter. We care deeply about design. For us, it’s both how it works and how it looks. We are designing it to be highly functional yet minimalistic and delightful. We expect a broad set of design skills and the ability to create high-quality designs, interactions, and prototypes. As the Head of Design, you'll join a team of designers building early processes that continue to advocate our attention to detail and design-centric approach.
Please note: We are an equal-opportunity employer and remote-only company. At this time, we can only support hiring within North America for this role.
