About Patio
Pull up a chair and join us at Patio! We’re a remote-only company of 25 building out the future of communication and growing quickly. We help colleges and students connect with each other in a safe and welcoming environment, and we've raised $8M in 2021 from investors including Forerunner Ventures (backed Glossier, Hims & Hers, Chime, Warby Parker), Redpoint Ventures (backed Stripe, Snowflake, Nextdoor, Twilio), and Abstract Ventures (backed Popshop, Poparazzi, Rippling, WorkOS). If you love the idea of working at a fast-paced startup on the cutting edge of the consumer social space, come work at Patio!
As the second full-time designer at Patio, you will be involved in the entire design process, from feature ideation to pixel-perfect UI design. You’ll use a balance of product, interaction, and visual design skills, and have responsibility for all aspects of Patio’s product and brand. You’ll collaborate daily with coworkers all across the company and should be comfortable quickly iterating with both technical and non-technical teams. The ideal candidate can both take charge of their own projects and work collaboratively as part of a diverse, remote team.
As a designer at Patio, every day looks a little different and we are looking for a dynamic team member willing to do the most exciting work of their career to create an amazing experience for our users!

  • Partner with engineering, product management, trust & safety, and our marketing team to oversee the user experience from ideation to market
  • Conduct comprehensive research to help find ideal solutions for our users
  • Create wireframes, prototypes, and pixel-perfect final designs (we use Figma!)
  • Present and communicate your designs throughout the organization in order to iterate based on direct feedback and see your designs implemented in our product
  • Collaborate on building and maintaining our design system


  • 1+ years of experience in a digital design role (experience in consumer social a bonus!)
  • A portfolio of your UI/UX work on mobile or web products
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Ability to communicate clearly, both verbally and in writing
