Medium's mission is to help people deepen their understanding of the world & discover ideas that matter. We are building a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers. We are creating the best place for reading & writing on the internet-a place where today's smartest writers, thinkers, experts, & storytellers can share big, interesting ideas.
Our mission hinges on design: designing a product that helps readers discover the stories that matter to them; designing an ecosystem that supports & rewards quality writing; designing an experience that respects intelligence & is worth paying for. We are building this future, one product release at a time, & looking to designers to help lead the way.
We are looking for a Design Director to lead the Creators & Publishers design team, developing a vision for how creators write, edit & curate content on Medium & guiding execution on that vision. You will collaborate closely with the VP of Product Design on high-level strategy, & translate that strategy into clear guidance, process, & feedback for product designers. This is a high-impact role with the opportunity to shape how millions of people create & share ideas every day.
