About the team
Miro is building an open developer platform to support new use cases, extend the reach of Miro online, and integrate with 3rd party systems. More than 200 apps have already been built on our initial platform release, but this is just the beginning of our journey to build a comprehensive developer offering, with a world class developer experience.
Each role at Miro is based at one of our physical hubs, and we look for talent that want to be part of these local, collaborative communities. Mironeers work in a hybrid model, with a 3 days a week in office culture as our baseline.

You’ll be responsible for producing end-to-end, holistic user experiences and eng ready design deliverables, maintaining a high-bar of visual quality, with structure that ensures ease-of-understanding by users.

What’s in it for you
- Stock Option Grant
