Come lead Design at Medium

Because words still matter.

Our world has changed more in the last year than in the previous decade. The ground isn’t done shifting under our feet, and the stakes increase every single day. We stand to lose the things that bind us together — a place for ideas in public life, and our openness to engage thoughtfully with one another. Medium believes that these values are worth fighting for.

Medium’s mission hinges on Design. Designing a system that rewards quality in writing. Designing a service that curious minds will happily pay for. Designing a sustainable model for journalists, experts and thinkers to share their work without compromising their integrity. We are building this future, one product release at a time, and we need Design to lead the way.

You will lead and grow a team of extraordinary designers in order to tackle some of the deepest and most meaningful problems on the internet. You will own the design vision for both our product and our brand. You will work with researchers, engineers, product managers and data scientists to ship experiences that readers and writers love. You will communicate and foster our design within the company and to the world.
