The Role

Important: please also fill out the form at in addition to applying on this platform!

At Wanderlog, we love to travel and believe that it makes the world better, broadens our horizons, builds empathy, and challenges us to grow. That's why we want to bring these experiences to more of the world by making leisure travel easier, and build tools that lower the bar to do it.

We've raised funding from Y Combinator and General Catalyst, who have funded other travel startups such as Airbnb, Kayak, and Hipmunk. Our travel planning app has a 4.9-star rating and over 1 million downloads, and we have many happy users who’ve shared their experiences (without us asking them) on Tiktok, Reddit, and Youtube.

  • Salary: $75-$100k USD per year
  • Equity: 0.1-0.25%

What you'll do:

We're looking to hire a Product Designer to lead both UX and visual design for Wanderlog.

Because you’ll be the sole design team member at Wanderlog, we’re looking for a jack of all trades who’s eager to take on a wide range of design-related tasks beyond the core responsibility of making mock-ups. These include:

  • Make rough and detailed mocks for engineers to build and ship on web, mobile web, and in mobile apps
  • Collaborate directly with engineers to bring designs to spec and completeness
  • Perform user research and testing to explore new projects and find usability issues in existing features
  • Write project briefs that cover project goals, user personas, core user flow, key requirements, and metrics for projects
  • Create graphics and brainstorm ideas for social media ads and growth experiments
  • Write copy for our web/mobile apps and for marketing materials (ads, emails, and more)
  • Maintaining and evolving our design system and brand identity
  • Potentially write some code to make the design system easier for our engineers to use: we’re happy to mentor you to grow your skills here, if you’re interested
  • Use a full range of design skills from product thinking and problem solving to visual implementation

You may be a good fit if:

  • You’ve designed software products for at least 1 year
  • You are a jack of all trades with a specialty in visual design
  • You have a strong portfolio to showcase your problem solving and design skills
  • You have some experience working on product design projects end to end, in collaboration with cross-functional teams (class projects can count too)
  • You are a good communicator and can effectively express your point of view
  • You are familiar with basic design tools such as Figma, Sketch, or Adobe Creative Suite (we heavily use Figma for everything)

Bonus points:

  • You are familiar and up to date with current design best practices and trends
  • You are open minded to try new tasks outside of your comfort zone and design knowledge
  • You have a can-do attitude and strong desire to sharpen your design skills through learning and trial and error
  • You have a general interest in traveling

About Wanderlog

We’re an engineering and product-heavy team. Travel is something everyone does, and we love using the tools we build. A typical week's work involves talking to users, prioritizing tasks on a kanban, designing on Figma, and building and shipping them continuously.

We believe in work-life balance despite being a fast-paced week. We work normal hours and make time for enjoying life with friends and family. We love travel and believe it rejuvenates us and makes us better people, and have travel off-sites every 6 months where the goal is to just enjoy visiting a new place and use the tools we've built.

We have a small, friendly, and capable team. We’ve hired strictly and deliberately to create a small team that we enjoy working with. Despite being remote, we try to replicate the community of being in person a bit by having a casual part of our standup where we talk about our lives outside of work and play games together every 2 weeks on Thursday afternoons.

The founders are twin brothers — Peter worked as an engineer at Stripe and a consultant at McKinsey, and Harry as a product manager at Google. They studied computer science at Yale, and have built successful, bootstrapped travel companies (BookWithMatrix and All the Flight Deals) with products people love before starting Wanderlog.
