All are welcome! At Sketchy, we know a diverse and inclusive team not only makes our product better but our workplace better. Making Sketchy warmer and more inviting for everyone is at the core of our company's culture

What We’re Looking For:

  • Track record of demonstrating great judgment of when to ship: “Perfect is the enemy of good”
  • Led efforts to define initial designs going from “zero to one,” including design patterns, style guides, and UI libraries that were leveraged by engineering, product, and other designers.
