Are you excited and inspired to create the best, most elegant, usable, engaging, fun, exciting, groundbreaking, and useful product out there? Do you eat, live, and breathe great product design? Are you obsessed with software and how it can help make people better at what they do? If so, we want you on our product team!
We’re looking for a talented, hungry, and driven Web & Mobile Product Designer that will work directly with Calvin, our founder and product visionary, to help make the vision a reality. Think what the Imagineers did for Walt Disney.
Calvin founded Simplero, a software company that helps coaches, authors, and speakers transform lives at scale through online courses and memberships. We’re an all-remote team of 30 trailblazers passionate about service, personal growth, and simplicity. We have helped over 2500 customers in 30 countries make over $220M. We’re changing lives, providing livelihoods, and our service is incredibly valuable. We’re a team united by our shared values of growth, ownership, service, and hunger.
We’re launching some new business lines aimed at dramatically improving the health of the American population, with a long-term mission of supporting people all across the world in being happy, healthy, prosperous, and safe.
The job is hard. We have high standards, and we’re going to expect a lot of you. But the payoff both personally and professionally will be immense.
This is a full-time position that will require both in-person and remote work in the New York City area. We’re currently working remotely, but are working on opening an office in Manhattan in the very near future.
A Little Bit About You:
You’re willing to work out of our Manhattan office most of the time
You’re super passionate about product design, always studying, learning, solving complex product design challenges while you shower because … because you can’t help it.
You can take a vision and turn it into a reality
You can quickly sketch product designs by hand, and make it look decent … this is super important. We won’t have time to do computer sketches when we’re brainstorming.
You easily get the big picture vision, distill it down, and even expand on it
You can take something abstract and make it concrete and practical
You love users and love seeing the smile on their faces when you hit the sweet spot
You have a strong visual sense and can make things that are beautiful and functional
What You’ll Do:
Work closely with Calvin on product, both big picture, and in detail (we’re talking whiteboards and big markers for creative brainstorming)
Take Calvin’s vision and abstract and rough ideas and make them concrete and translate them to product design concepts
Work closely with our engineering team to understand the technical limitations and possibilities
Support the Project Management team as they ideate product marketing campaigns to help increase adoption and awareness of the product
Work closely with our UI designer to get it down to the pixel level
Research our customers, their world, their needs, their businesses
Testing product to ensure quality standards are met
Identify, troubleshoot, and improve on product design problems
What You’ll Need:
A portfolio of great work and contributions
Examples of your hand-drawn low-fi product design sketches
A proven track record of success in working with engineers to accomplish great things
The ability to balance creativity and strategy
Passion and fire about creating something groundbreaking and new
Data visualization experience preferred
Knowledge of the customers we have and the space we’re in is super valuable
Willing to learn and understand how software works under the hood
Love of software and desire to push the envelope
Strong logical mind
What’s in it for you
Changing lives at scale. Making the tools that empower experts to make a living teaching others is seriously high-leverage work.
Be part of a lean, efficient, high-autonomy, high-accountability team.
Show exactly what you created AND know exactly how many customers benefit from it how often.
With a product team rarely larger than 2 people, we built what other companies need 100s of engineers to build. Welcome to the 100x club!
Know how great it feels when you make a customer’s day. You’re not locked in a room 4 floors away from anyone who talks to a customer: you’ll see the impact of each bug fix, “surprise and delight” tweak, and feature.
Access to hundreds of hours of training material, books, workouts, etc.. For just about anything you want to learn about Internet business, personal growth, software development—if it’s not already in our virtual library, just ask.
Personal and professional coaching. Who do you want to be? How do you want to grow yourself and your career? We’ll help you get there.
4 weeks of paid vacation per year. Yes. We want you to get some perspective and rest.
Generous profit sharing. Since we don’t have stock options, this is how we do it.
What Sets Simplero Apart

Profitable. Been in business for 11+ years. Solid, stable, proven company, product, and business model.
2,300 active customers. Our customers have earned over $200M using Simplero.

We solve real problems for real people that are happy to pay us real money. We sign off each day knowing we made a difference in someone’s life.
We do things differently from other companies. You’ll see. We laugh a lot. We’re real with each other. We breathe. We care.
We’re 100% bootstrapped, privately owned, and we’re not in it for an exit. We’re here to serve our clients and do work that matters for decades to come.
We have customers that have been with us for over ten years, and still love us as much as we love them.
