Are you an accomplished Product Designer who is ready to step up and lead design across the entire experience of a venture-backed consumer product? If the idea of joining a company that’s solving a rarely discussed problem that has a hugely detrimental impact on billions of people’s lives across the globe, gets you going, our Head of Design role might be for you.

We are looking for someone innovative and obsessed with user-centricity to help us change the way that people deal with issues in the bedroom and engage in intimate relationships.

The perfect person will have experience with early-stage products in direct-to-consumer companies. You’ll be a hands-on designer who loves your craft and being an individual contributor. Yes, you want to build an amazing design function and grow a world-class design team but you are excited about the challenge of creating the foundations and definifing what good looks with one junior designer first over the next 12 months. You’re a natural leader and see the big picture, relish engaging with strategy and breaking down big complex user problems into manageable deliverables that move business metrics.

Before we talk about our product and mission, let’s be clear that although we’re tackling men’s sexual problems right now, you don’t need to be a guy to apply. We want to hear from candidates of all genders. We believe that the best solutions for changing sexual wellbeing can come from anywhere and will benefit everyone.

At Mojo, we’re sexually enlightening mankind.

Sexual problems can be embarrassing, we’ve been there. That’s why we’re changing the narrative around issues in the bedroom.

We believe that good sex starts in your head, so we’re not here to push pills or offer quick fixes to the 50% of Millennials and Gen Z who now suffer with psychological issues in the bedroom. Nope, our app is created by the world’s best sexual wellbeing specialists to help our members lead thriving and healthy sex lives 💪. We are looking for someone that is excited to be part of that.

The Role

You’ll work closely with the founders, report to the CEO, and take ownership of design at Mojo. We want you to make the company famous for its use-centred design and win the app awards.

We are an app-first experience and your designs will have a profound human impact across the world. We are operating in a space that has been cursed with spammy erection medication emails and smutty service station urinal ads. This is an opportunity for a solid UX designer who has exceptional and beautiful UI skills that differentiate us from everything that has come before us and change the narrative in this space.

As we are an early-stage start-up, there is room for you to have a huge impact on the future of the company and a large amount of autonomy to shape the design function and get stuck in.
