Do you know what Yat is?
If you don’t, then how did you find your way here? (we’re beyond excited you’re here) So first, a brief rundown to either get you up to speed or give you a little more info about what we’re all about at Yat. First off, we love our community (Yat🤝our community). We have a passionate group of creators who pour their time and energy into using Yats as a vehicle for self-expression (think of it as hieroglyphics for the modern age). They create emoji internet identities that they can use across every chat app, social network, metaverse (and beyond), and that we consider beautiful works of art with profound messages.

It’s really about connecting to the universal language of visual representation in a whole new way, one that celebrates individuals, community, and everyone’s right to privacy in the digital realm. We don’t want to say we’re changing the world, but yeah, we are.
We also happen to be one of the fastest-growing consumer products of all time (👑 us) and as such needs an incredibly talented team dedicated to making sure it’s continued 🚀from here on out.
Now for a bit of background. Yat is the brainchild of Tari Labs, a digital assets-focused blockchain organization that believes privacy on the internet should be pervasive and available to all, co-founded by Naveen Jain (who also founded Sparkart). And in case you’re worried about funding (stability), Yat is backed by Blockchain Capital, Pantera Capital, Multicoin Capital, Trinity Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Canaan Partners, and Slow Ventures (as well as some of the best investors in the world).
And who are you? Well, we’re hoping you’re someone who takes the exceptional and exceeds it, who rolls up their sleeves and gets their hands dirty, and who wants to take a step outside the ordinary to create a world that’s more beautiful, fun, and privacy-oriented.
We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to help Yat Labs design the future of emoji identities. You’ll collaborate with other designers, design-oriented engineers, and product managers. You will be a core part of a small team that designs new features for Yat, from proposing initial concepts to helping ship high-quality features. You will be contributing to all aspects of product design and execution, including (visual design, interaction design, and prototyping). We look for problem solvers and great designers that can deliver beautiful visuals and are not afraid to take risks.

    • Intrigued by the prospect of working at a consumer startup that’s at the intersection of digital identity, emojis, privacy, the creator economy, and NFTs, and is led by a founding team with significant prior success and deep industry credibility.

What You'll Do:

    • Support design projects across the entire product lifecycle for both mobile, web, and desktop platforms and from wireframes to hi-fi prototypes.
    • Be autonomous. You’ll take full ownership of your work, and you take responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way.
    • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.
    • Understand our users through exploratory research.
    • Help develop an overarching design system to aid rapid development and iteration.
    • Solicit feedback from other designers in order to continually raise our bar for quality.
