We are growing our Design team to build a world class product experience at Tile. Tile makes a smart location device that helps people find items that are important to them. You may have seen them at Target, Apple Store, or on a friend's keychain, so that things like keys, bikes, backpacks, wallets, etc can be found with their smartphone.

Design Team Mission

Our team is looking to elevate the entire product experience. The Design team works closely with the Product and Software Engineering teams to bring life to ideas that make Tile even more relevant to daily life, by unlocking the combined potential of smartphones, the cloud, and our community of Tile users. We are making a future where everything has smart location, so the world will be a simpler, happier place. The Sr. Product/UX Designer is primarily responsible for creating the user experience of a product or feature from conception through launch.
