Senior Product Designer - AI startup

Snips is hiring!

About

Snips is a voice platform for connected devices. It enables makers and companies to add a voice assistant to their products via a simple web interface.

Created in 2013, the vision behind Snips has been to put an AI assistant in every device, making technology so intuitive that it disappears into the background. We are now over 50 people, with offices in Paris and New York.

What makes Snips unique is that everything runs locally on the device the user is speaking to, meaning no data ever gets sent to the cloud. This guarantees Privacy by Design and resilience to internet outages, making Snips the first ever voice technology to be GDPR compliant.

Our web platform was launched in June, and already has more than 7000 developers who created over 17000 assistants.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and consider every profile equally. We are also family friendly, and welcome parents, young parents and future parents!

What you will do

Snips is looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our team in Paris.

You will be leading the Design Team along with the co-founder and Head of Labs, Michael Fester. Your role will be to shape Snips products and strengthen the Snips brand.

Voice being a new paradigm, we are looking for creative minds, keen to embrace new challenges without an installation manual. We are exploring the unknown of voice interaction and we want to re-invent it so it becomes truly intuitive and simple.

There are three pillars to the job:

UX - UI
To work on our Web Console (console.snips.ai) and related web-based tools that allow companies, makers and developers to build high-quality voice assistants. You’ll also work on tools that will let anyone, even a kid with his Raspberry Pi, easily install assistants on their devices.

LABS PROJECTS
To create new prototypes for use-cases where voice is a game changer. The Snips Labs has a lot of tools to make cool prototypes: 3D Printer, sensors, led rings, dev boards and so on. You will work hand in hand with a maker to develop smart prototypes using voice and more.

OVERALL IDENTITY
Snips is now a grown up in the AI world, therefore our identity must be perceived as strong and differentiate us from our competition. You will be responsible for the homogeneity of the brand, and of all the assets that are meant to be public.

English is the official language of the company, as we have over 12 different nationalities, so don't worry if you don't speak French!
On top of a competitive salary, we offer many perks including relocation assistance and VISA sponsorships, laptops, makers kits, language classes, sports classes, full health insurance, a transport card and free lunches!
