We're looking for a

Thoughtful Product Designer 


Qwilr is a platform for anyone to create beautiful documents as mobile-friendly webpages. We are product focused and product driven, predicated on the idea that design thinking and engineering are not antagonistic disciplines, but can and should work hand in hand.


We’re looking for a thoughtful and visual Product Designer, with at least a few years experience applying their design thinking to real world products, ready to take the next step in their career. Joining Qwilr’s design team of two, you'll help us tackle some large and interesting design challenges coming up this year.


This role is based in Sydney, Australia.



In short, we’re looking for a visual product designer, with at least a few years experience applying their design thinking to real world products. We’re totally open to people from non-traditional design backgrounds too, but the following is how we’ll be evaluating candidates:



Ability to empathise with the user

We want to see you have a routine ability to understand the people you’re designing for, the context they operate within, and how this translated to your design outcomes.



Strength in unpacking a problem

We’d like to see how you explore and unpack a problem, particularly in areas where the brief or context was initially unclear or poorly defined. 



Attitude to collaboration 

We believe great collaboration within design and across teams helps strengthen the solution, and we’d like to see your experience in working with others, especially cross functional teams.



Ease with divergent ideation 

We’d like to see how you able to iterate quickly around a problem, without getting too attached to any particular path or idea. 



Attention to detail and polish 

We have a very high bar in our design work, and we want to see a similarly high level of execution and pride presented in your work.




STEP 1 —

Design task

Based on actual area in the product, this will be a small take home task to see how you approach a design problem. Whilst we’re evaluating design thinking and approach, bonus points for visual polish and attention to detail.


STEP 2 —

Interview & Whiteboard

This will be a informal chat with Dom, our Design Lead, followed by a whiteboard session similar to the take home task. This is to see how you approach a design problem in person, and get a general feel for what it would be like working together. 


STEP 3 —

Meet the Founders

After this, you’ll come in to meet the founders, Dylan (our CEO) and Mark (our COO). This will be an informal chat. An opportunity for you to get to know us at a human level, and for us to get to know you.
