At Kerno, we are on a daring mission to unlock the untapped potential of every software engineer by establishing a new world order in developer experiences when building and optimizing their applications. We want to empower every developer on the planet with the capabilities to have complete ownership of their code from inception to production - removing any barriers that prevent this.
We’re starting by building a developer-centric observability tool that combines world-class developer experience, performance, and data intelligence to make it as easy as possible for developers to understand how their code behaves in complex distributed systems so they can make better decisions and fix production issues faster and with complete independence.
We are a small, fully remote team of makers who care deeply about our craft and strive to build highly functional, performant, minimalistic, and magical experiences for developers.
As the Founding Designer at Kerno, you will play a pivotal role, and your voice will carry tremendous weight in shaping the product experience and visual identity.
You will enjoy ownership of a broad scope of responsibilities supporting product, brand, and marketing and will go on to define Kerno’s design culture.
Here is an excellent guide from First Round Capital about being a Founding Designer at an early-stage startup:
What you’ll be working on
What we are looking for:
Please note that we don’t expect you to be a master at all of the things listed above, so we encourage you to apply if you don’t tick all the boxes.
We believe employers shouldn’t nickel and dime employees, so we are committed to ensuring that remunerations represent our best foot forward. Unfortunately, we can’t offer a multi-million salary package (yet), but we balance any shortcomings in salary with a generous equity package and employee benefits.
