Full-Time Product Designer
Mode is changing how organizations make decisions by equipping every single person with the power to collaborate on analytics and share insights at the pace of work today. Mode is laying the foundation for the analytics revolution with a platform that provides analysts limitless flexibility and power, and makes data accessible to all via thoughtful, smart, simple design.
Mode values design as an integral part of product vision: we believe in building a team of designers who complement each other; designers who have the desire to deeply understand the people we design for, and the expertise to execute on that understanding. Whether that is with hand drawn sketches, detailed interactive prototypes, deep qualitative research skills, or trend-setting visual design chops, each designer at Mode contributes from a unique perspective that directly shapes the product and company. By keeping a sensible designer-to-engineer ratio, we ensure that your contributions will have a deep and lasting impact.
