We're a startup turned app development shop. Our small, growing team partners with non-technical founders to design and build innovative new products.

We’re looking for a Designer with an eye for detail and a passion for creating software that looks great and is easy to use. You should have experience producing wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive mockups. You should also be comfortable owning a project from start to finish and collaborating within a small team. Coding chops aren’t required for this role, but an interest in learning how to build your design in code is a plus.

Note: Because some of our clients work with government agencies, this role is only open to US citizens.

Krit is a growing digital agency that partners with Cyber Security startups to design and build innovative new products.

We typically work with 8-12 clients at any time on projects like:

  • Designing a web app to visualize the background noise of the internet and uncover the next wave of cyber attacks.

  • Creating software to help Fortune 500 companies visualize opportunities for attack within their networks and improve their security.

  • Building a dashboard used by security teams at city governments and utilities to detect abnormal web traffic.

Our clients’ products have been used by brands like Dropbox, Lyft, Microsoft, Nike, Yale University, and more.

Last year, we made $700,000 in revenue as a company and are on track to increase that this year. We’re a bootstrapped, transparent company and share our profits with our team. 🎉

We’re looking for a creative, user-focused designer

We’re looking for a Designer with an eye for detail and a passion for creating software that looks great and is easy to use. You should have experience producing wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive mockups. You should also be comfortable owning a project from start to finish and collaborating within a small team. Coding chops aren’t required for this role, but an interest in learning how to build your design in code is a plus.

Detail oriented Most of your work will be creating production-ready, high-fidelity prototypes that will serve as the blueprint for our developers to implement. You should have a sharp eye for details in your design and pay attention to things like consistent typography, spacing and use of color.

User focused You will be working with clients to create products that solve real problems for their users. You should always be thinking about the people using the software you design and make thoughtful considerations for things like error messages, empty states, and edge cases.

Eye for aesthetics We create software that solves problems and looks great doing it (nobody wants to use ugly software!). You should be a creative visual designer with an understanding of how aesthetics impact user experience and perception.

Accepting of feedback We believe sharing and getting feedback on designs early and often produces the best work. You should seek out feedback on your ideas as a way to push your work to the best it can be.

What to expect at Krit

You’ll be working with clients and our two designers, Austin and Iris, to take ideas through a full design process that includes wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive prototypes. This will be a mix of new products and new features/redesigns for existing products. For new projects you will own the entire process from user interviews to high fidelity mockups. You will have an opportunity to learn from our talented team and to mentor more junior designers.

This role will be joining our lead designer and junior designer as the second addition to the design team. This means you’ll have a lot of room for growth and influence as we continue growing the design team.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Producing wireframes and high-fidelity, interactive prototypes for new products and features (we currently use Figma for designing and collaborating)

  • Conducting user interviews and analyzing analytics data to guide clients on design directions

  • Working with other Kritters to ideate and explore design directions for new products

  • Writing microcopy for your designs

  • Participating in design critiques with the Krit team and with clients

  • Working with developers to help them understand and implement your designs

  • Learning to code your designs in HTML and CSS

In this role, you won’t be responsible for:

  • Branding and creative direction

  • Project management

We primarily use Figma for wireframing and prototyping, but we make sure to use the best tool for the job.

You’ll be a human, not a number While we’re not perfect, we are super passionate about creating a great place to work. We’re striving to build a culture that’s respectful, kind, supportive, and challenging. You won’t just be a number here—you’ll have a measurable impact on the direction of the business.

You’ll be a part of an inclusive, transparent company One of our goals is to build a more diverse company. To us, this means diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, and national origin. We strongly believe in building an inclusive workplace where everyone feels safe and invited. We are also a fully transparent company. We share our finances, salaries, pipeline, and more.

All roles at Krit come with:

💸 Competitive salary + profit sharing
This will be a salaried position paid $80,000 per year. All full-time team members also participate in our yearly profit-sharing program and receive yearly raises.

Our salaries and raise process are completely transparent, you can see our Compensation Model here. For this position we are looking for a Level 2 Designer.

👩‍⚕️ Benefits
We offer competitive healthcare plans, as well as dental and vision insurance and access to a 401k.

🏖 Vacation days
All Krit employees get 15 vacation days as well as 10 company holidays. Sick days don’t count as vacation, if you’re sick don’t make it worse with work.

🌎 Remote, United States
While we have a home base in Charleston, SC, most of our team is remote. For this role, we are only considering applicants who are eligible to work in the United States.

🕰 Flexible hours
Everyone is different. As long as you can be available for team meetings and are able to communicate effectively with the team, work when you work best. We do expect you to average about 6 billable hours per day.

💻 Equipment budget
Every new employee gets $2,500 to spend on equipment, so you can pick whatever works best for you.

☕️ Co-working/Coffee budget (Remote)
We want you to have the space you need to do your best work. We’ll give you up to $200 per month to put towards a co-working space. Or if you prefer going to a coffee shop a few times a week then we’ll cover the coffee tab.

👼 Paid family leave
We offer a family leave plan of up to 4 weeks paid vacation and 4 weeks unpaid regardless of your gender.

What is your Interview process like?

First, submit an application. If we think you could bring something new to the team, we’ll schedule a short, 30-minute phone interview with Andrew. During this time, we’ll get to know each other and dive into your background.

If the phone interview indicates you’re a good addition to the team, we’ll schedule a more in-depth design interview with our team. There will be no homework or design exercise for you to do, we just want to get a good idea of how you approach design.

The design interview will consist of 3 parts:

  1. Get to know some other Kritters and talk about your past experience and projects.
  2. Case study - You’ll come prepared with two of your previous projects and walk us through your process for each.
  3. Design jam - We’ll present a project in progress and ideate on solutions. This is to get an idea of how you approach the design process. There isn’t a design exercise portion of the interview, but you will be expected to communicate effectively and participate in design exploration discussion.

What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

One of our goals is to build a more diverse company. To us, this means diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, and national origin. We strongly believe in building an inclusive workplace where everyone feels safe and invited
