How we work
We work in small cross-functional teams that usually consist of three developers, a designer and a product manager. The teams work closely together towards a specific customer need or business goal. We always make sure our features are innovative, delightful and easy to use.
As a Designer you will be part of the whole feature lifecycle, starting with the discussion around what to focus on and why. Rest assured we also have Product Managers who will help you collect all customer feedback (we have this cool tool called productboard for that 😉). Conducting user research here is smooth and fun as we have direct access to our customers.
Before we build well designed, intuitive, innovative and production ready features, we first test our assumptions during a discovery phase. Expect to find your focus shifting through the process, moving from concrete observations to highly abstract thinking, and then right back again into the nuts and bolts of your design. You will get the chance to test different paths with our customers to make sure we pick the best solution for delivery.
We work closely with developers when building features — sitting next to each other and polishing pixels. When you ship your feature to production, head to Intercom or our customer Slack community to inform those who requested the features that it’s live. Enjoy all the love they send your way for designing a feature that solves a real need. It’ll be especially rewarding since our customers are among the brightest product minds in the industry.
What do we do besides shipping features
We take pride in our craft and always strive to improve our skills and tooling. We organize internal design critiques and aspire to host our own design meetups. We also like to share our experiences with others at various meetups and conferences.
The sky’s the limit – your network will skyrocket by joining our team. We’re friends with designers from companies like Slack, DropBox, InVision, Intercom, Dribbble, and many more.
We live to design, but for other things as well! We are social creatures and we like to hang out with others talking about stuff that is not just pixels. We have regular team breakfasts and dinners, but we also like to get out of Prague from time to time so we organize team offsites - both in the Czech Republic and abroad.
After work we often give in to the inescapable draw of our favorite local joints: Vinograf, Meat&Greet, Tiskarna and a whiskey bar in Jindrisska Tower. We often host beer or prosecco evening at our HubHub office where we invite our +1s and people outside of the company as well – you are invited too! We usually watch how Playstation downloads another batch of updates, discuss our recent attempts to start running again, and listen to Mike's fresh new playlist on Spotify. We are fun.
