UX Designer

Cambridge, MA

The team

Superpedestrian brings together a team of extraordinary people for one vision: transforming urban mobility. Our first move? Pedal power. We have an exclusive license to MIT’s Copenhagen Wheel, thousands of pre-order sales and backing from tier-one venture capital investors. Together, our team is now bringing the Wheel to the masses.

The Copenhagen Wheel is an electronic assist robot that responds seamlessly to how you ride. It makes biking a breeze. To work with us, you don’t have to be the world’s most obsessed cyclist, but you should possess a strong desire to change the way people everywhere move about cities. We’re revolutionizing personal transit for a sustainable future.

It should be a no-brainer: Superpedestrian is an equal opportunity employer, with women and minorities strongly encouraged to apply. We care about your skills and your character. If we think there’s a good fit, we will get in touch. So please, no phone calls or recruiters.

Who you are

Life at Superpedestrian is about creating the magic that people feel when they ride the Copenhagen Wheel. As we move to transform urban mobility, we are envisioning new products to contribute to and enhance that vision. We are seeking a User Experience Designer who will research and represent the needs of our customers, and design engaging experiences with the Copenhagen Wheel. You should have a passion for design and an insatiable curiosity for how people interact with digital devices and the world around them.

What you'll do: 

  • Design for users. Our product is used by a wide variety of individuals of all ages, interests and needs, so you’ll be expected to take a human-centered approach to design
  • Create user research studies, sketches, wireframes, and experience flows for use across teams
  • Collaborate with engineers, marketers, and leadership to create a cohesive experience across our products
  • Work closely with the design and engineering teams to deliver magical experiences that delight users
  • Research and stay up to date on competitive and related products

What we're looking for: 

  • Passion for designing engaging user experiences for both web and mobile (and other devices!)
  • A strong portfolio with examples of specific UX-focused deliverables
  • Excellent interpersonal communication skills and a team-focused attitude
  • Academic degree in HCI, visual communication, new media, graphic design, or similar experience
  • Familiarity with tools of the trade: Sketch, Omnigraffle, pencil & paper

What you can expect

  • A team of awesome, like-minded, driven people that support each other, and mentors from across the top echelons of industry
  • A competitive compensation and equity package as well as a 401(K) retirement savings plan
  • The choice of a wide range of health and dental insurance plans, a flexible spending account, short and long-term disability and life insurance
  • Flexible working hours, casual dress code, and unlimited paid vacation
  • The chance to have your voice heard and help shape Superpedestrian’s future
  • A gorgeous, dog-friendly workspace in a beautifully renovated warehouse with a private courtyard in the heart of Cambridge
  • A full kitchen, stocked with an embarrassingly wide range of hot sauces, and a grill for our frequent cookouts
  • Regular social events, team lunches, weekly beer runs, and a bi-weekly running club
