About the job

Most people who face a legal problem do not get help from a lawyer. And for those who do, many find the experience expensive, uncertain and confusing. Josef’s mission is simple and ambitious: to make legal services more accessible for everyone, no matter who you are. 

Josef is an award-winning no-code platform that allows legal teams to easily build, launch and scale automated legal services. Since we were founded in 2019, we’ve used cutting-edge technology to help hundreds of thousands of people solve legal problems, ranging from public transport fines in Australia to domestic violence in North Africa, from complex tax questions in San Francisco to helping people deal with troublesome landlords in New York.

Our customers include in-house legal teams at companies like L’Oreal and Bupa, global law firms like Clifford Chance, law schools like New York University and Melbourne Law School, and legal aid organisations around the world, like Housing Court Answers in New York.

Josef doesn’t just build world-leading tech: we also lead the conversation. We’re regularly invited to present our research at conferences worldwide, including last year at the International Conference on AI and the Law in Braga, Portugal, and at Stanford’s JURIX conference in Maastricht, Netherlands.

What we are looking for

We are seeking a visionary Product Designer who is passionate about creating user-centric, innovative solutions. 

The ideal candidate will have a knack for balancing aesthetics with functionality, thriving in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. You should be someone who is not only skilled in design but also empathetic towards user needs, with a keen eye for detail and a strong desire to impact the Legaltech industry. If you’re ready to push boundaries and contribute to products that make a real difference, we would love to hear from you.

Who we are

As a Product Designer, you’ll collaborate closely with our product managers and engineers on both our workflow automation and AI products, Josef and Josef Q. 

Your role is crucial in our interdisciplinary team, driving the design and delivery of products that resonate with our customers. You’ll be the bridge between our team and our users, conducting regular user research and gathering both qualitative and quantitative insights.

You’ll use various design tools to conceptualise features and solutions, collaborating with the team to bring these to life for our customers. Your expertise will be vital in helping us achieve our mission of being a trusted partner to legal and compliance teams.

  • Crafting designs that blend creativity with customer insights and data.
  • Sharing designs at every project stage, fostering team collaboration for optimal outcomes.
  • Maintaining our design system for consistency and scalability across our platform.

  • 3+ years of experience in designing both rapid and high-fidelity prototypes
  • A flexible, iterative approach to design, with a habit of sharing work-in-progress
  • A user-centric design process to address complex customer challenges
  • Strong communication skills collaborating with Product Managers and Engineers
  • Effective stakeholder management skills in a startup environment, with the ability to gather, synthesise feedback, and drive decisions
  • A recent design portfolio showcasing your work
  • Proficiency in using Figma

Desired:

  • Experience in designing B2B SaaS products and conducting research in this domain
  • Demonstrated experience in designing AI-based products
  • Experience maintaining and contributing to Design Systems
  • Interest or experience in Legaltech
