Gild is seeking a passionate, inquisitive, creative, and thoughtful UI Designer to join our Product team. We are fundamentally changing the talent market by providing developers with the information and tools they need to stand out based on their merits. We want an individual who aspires to play a huge role in designing these new experiences. This is an opportunity to build a product used all over the world and actually improve peoples' lives.
