UX Designer

This is an incredible opportunity to join a startup as a Product / UX Designer and be involved at the very beginning of developing a new product.

About AccessiaWe're an early stage startup looking to make waves in access control (securing buildings using technology). Our engineering leads and investors have acted as a team for almost fifteen years; their previous company sold for $700 million, and others have sold for $3 billion and $270 million, so we believe we have what it takes to succeed. Having been working for one of the big-name tech companies for several years, we felt the time was right to once again set out on our own in order to break free from meetings and middle-management, and to give ourselves the opportunity to do great work.We're a proper company with a real office paying decent salaries as well as offering a share in the business, and we are already fully funded for at least our first couple of years, so the biggest risk you'll be taking is the risk that you might achieve something!
