About Stack AI

  1. Vision: Democratize access to Large Language Models, so that anyone can build AI-powered applications that generate positive impact to the world.
  2. Product: A user-friendly and intuitive No-Code platform integrating best AI models (OpenAI, Anthropic, Google, open source), most common data sources (OneDrive, Google Drive, Airtable, Notion) and SaaS (Zapier, HubSpot, etc.). We do the heavy-lifting for you, so you can focus on the product and business.
  3. Traction: Launched 8 months ago; over 35,000 users and 300+ paying customers (including public companies and unicorns!).
  4. Team: Founded by two MIT PhDs, backed by major investors such as Y Combinator and Gradient Ventures, we are now a four-engineer team.
  5. Values: Default to action, radical transparency, boldness, and strong opinions loosely-held.

Responsibilities:

We need 10X designers to make this happen! True wizards that can deliver on a daily basis in the high-paced environment.

In this role you will...

  • Be up to date to state-of-the-art design trends, tools and overall know-how.
  • Get your hands dirty and code.
  • We're all about our users - listen to their needs, help them, build strong relationships! Expect to dive into customer support now and then as everyone else in the team.

Required Skills and Qualifications:

You will be a great fit if you have...

  • A proven track record as a Developer and Designer, with a strong portfolio in both UI/UX design and front-end development.
  • Proficiency in Next.js, TypeScript, and CSS, with a preference for experience in Tailwind.
  • A deep understanding of user-centered design principles.
  • Experience in creating and maintaining design systems.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.

  • Experience in leading design projects and collaborating with cross-functional teams.
  • An innovative mindset, constantly seeking to improve the user experience and product design.
  • A passion for AI and technology, with a desire to work in a fast-paced startup environment.

Beyond these skills, what we value the most is your ability to remain curious and open to learning new skills. As a early-stage startup joiner, you may need to wear many hats.
