At Ranku, we are as much a product company as we are a technology company and we expect continual product innovation from our product designers. We have just been accepted to Techstars Ed in the West Village/NYC. The accelerated incubator goes from June 18 - September 13. We are looking for a talented and creative UI designer to join our team.
As a product designer at Ranku, you will have the authority and ability to make strong decisions about important parts of the product without much oversight. To help accomplish this goal, you will have the environment to execute on your vision, powerful tools to rapidly iterate through your ideas and an incredible team to help make you and your work better.

You should be comfortable with autonomy and ownership of large areas of the product but open to and interested in gathering feedback. An ideal candidate will have the potential to grow into a strong leadership role over time--in either a individual contributor or management capacity (i.e. eventually the equivalent of a Google Fellow or a V.P.)
We are building up technical infrastructure that makes it easy for us to quickly implement products and features that are composed from reusable building blocks, and that automatically update in real time as the underlying data in our system changes, without any extra work. We want to be able to focus more on design and less on implementation in getting a product or feature built and released. As a result, product designers are highly empowered and are especially important to us.
