About Us

Formed in 2014, Tendermint is the creator of Cosmos, an ecosystem of interoperable blockchains. We are a software engineering company that focuses on the Cosmos SDK and Starport, state-of-the-art frameworks for blockchain development. Over USD 100 billion worth of digital assets is secured by the 200+ blockchains built with the Cosmos SDK. We’re passionate, self-driven industry leaders whose vision is to empower people to create a more transparent and accountable world through open, distributed, and interoperable networks. We believe that the technology we’re building will have a major positive impact on how humans connect and coordinate globally. Join our growing international team and help us build the most popular multi-blockchain ecosystem in the world.

 

How We Work

We have team members working worldwide, from North America, Europe to the Middle East and Asia. We leverage agile methodologies to move quickly and stay focused. Communication is vital to us, and we rely heavily on Slack, Google Workspace, Asana, Notion, and GitHub to help us stay in sync. All the technology we build is free and open source. This role is a full-time remote position, and you’re free to work from anywhere. Be advised that most team meetings occur between 8 am and 12 pm Pacific Time (UTC-8/-7).  If you’re applying from a location where these hours are outside your usual working hours, we expect you to adapt to our meeting times.

 

About the Role

Our Design team is seeking a talented product designer with extensive experience designing complex products with functional, intuitive, and beautiful web and mobile app interfaces.

Join our ambitious team and plug into the most powerful blockchain ecosystem.

 

Your Mission

Our vision is to make the process of building a blockchain super simple, frictionless, and even delightful. The success of any tool or framework that aims to streamline a developer’s workflow is contingent upon a solid developer experience. Therefore, understanding the needs of the users (developers) on a deep level will be paramount in your mission – not an afterthought. You’ll be collaborating with a lean team of engineers and internal stakeholders in your mission to find elegant solutions to complex technical problems, many of which will venture into uncharted territory with new and exciting opportunities for design innovation.
