Product Designer (Position Filled)
We exist to create a new feedback experience that is more open, transparent and personal.
Blindfeed is a new feedback experience that is backed by the people who built N26, Google Maps, and Google Assistant. Founded in 2018 by Björn Bakker & Abdelilah Hicham, Blindfeed is at its humble beginnings. It might not work, it might be huge, or it might actually change the way we understand each other. We’re persistent to achieve the latter.
About the people at Blindfeed
We are curious human beings in search of meaningful work and meaningful relationships. Our default is to leap into the unknown. Our daily obsession is to invent, design and engineer our way to help people understand more about themselves, and each other, so the best ideas win.

Why is this role important for Blindfeed’s mission?
The Product Designer at Blindfeed is an obsessed and curious creator taking the responsibility for the entire human experience of Blindfeed. This role is fundamental for our entire business because you’ll be working hand-in-hand with the founders, and the engineering team to take the vision and crazy ideas, and turn them into a remarkable experience for the humans using Blindfeed.
Once here you will...
Lead the design strategy to make the first steps to realize the vision of Blindfeed
Help our human users lead the way. We’re constantly searching to deeper understand our innovators and early adopters. You’ll focus to help our team understand how people respond to feedback in different cultures and situations
Be autonomous. You will take full ownership of your work, and take responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way
Inspire and support the engineers by applying your craft: conceptual design, research, low-fi designs, high-fi prototypes, usability testing and implementation
Contribute to strategic decisions that impact not only the product but also the future of the company
Organize weekly design critiques to give and receive feedback to continually raise our bar for a better human experience
Work from our office in Berlin, Germany
What you’ll bring to Blindfeed
A strong portfolio of experiments that show you explore the edges of the unimaginable. That show you don’t think in screens, but in states
You demonstrate daily how to apply research insights, the latest trends in technology and great design into our products
Your own ideas and dreams of the feedback experience that helps people understand more about themselves, and each other
Good storytelling and presentation skills (verbally or via the written word)
You get nervous if you’re not improving your craft. Every day you obsess to improve the sketching concepts, tweaking flows, or add remarkability to the human experience that anchor our big-thinking mission
History of self-initiated experiments
Your attention to detail doesn’t prevent you from shipping great work
Is this for you?
We’re looking for product designers to join our mission, share our vision and build something groundbreaking that will last way beyond our lifetime. If you believe this work matters, apply. If you want to look back at your life with no regrets, that you can tell your loved ones you actually tried to create something meaningful, if you want your name to be remembered, then definitely apply.
Our approach to diversity
We are proud to foster a workplace of cognitive diversity. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better experience for the people using Blindfeed. We will hire you because you are the best fit with our values, our mission and because you bring skills that we are currently missing (both the hard and the real skills), not because of your gender, religion or ethnicity. That way you know, that if you get to create meaningful work with us, it is because you are remarkable, not because we try to achieve a quota.
