Design at Backbone

"Backbone feels as first-party as you could make something that is literally not first-party feel." - TechCrunch

At Backbone, we're designing a totally new gaming experience that spans a wide range of surfaces. This presents us with exciting opportunities to solve complex, novel problems by designing cutting-edge, delightful solutions. We've also found that building products for players can be fun and rewarding because it's insanely fun to play games on your own product!

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build the future of gaming. If this appeals to you, then look no further!

What you’ll be doing

  • Own design problems end to end, from initial concept through shipping and beyond
  • Build flows and prototypes to tackle difficult UX problems
  • Obsess over the details of visual and motion design
  • Define and standardize reusable design patterns and components
  • Establish, build, and maintain a comprehensive library of shared design components
  • Set design requirements for new features based on information from internal teams and user research.
  • Ship, measure and improve your designs based on quantitative and qualitative feedback

What we’re looking for

  • Prototyping skills (Principle, After Effects, etc.)
  • Experience building products for Android or iOS, and web
  • Knowledge of mobile and web design patterns
  • Remote-friendly
  • Ability to collaborate with cross-functional team members
  • Proven experience building for a consumer audience
  • Examples of developing and conveying ideas clearly in a written and visual format—clearly demonstrate how your designs solve customers’ problems or add value to their lives
  • Ability to facilitate team discussions and help drive toward decisions
  • A track record of shipping phenomenal design with an understanding of what details matter at each stage of the release cycle, and make vital tradeoff decisions
  • Passionate about product and vision
  • Remote-friendly
  • An online portfolio will be required to apply for this role

Bonus Points

  • Strong proficiency in (or willingness to quickly learn) Figma
  • Experience with the design of gaming and/or entertainment platforms
  • Experience working with qualitative and quantitative data to inform your work
