Geneva is a messaging app for groups, clubs, and communities — more private than social media, more organized than basic group chat apps, and more fun than workplace tools.
At Geneva, we envision a happier world where people feel safer and more comfortable communicating with one another online. That’s why we’re creating a flexible and robust group messaging app that makes it easy for people to have genuine conversations with the communities they care about. We see ourselves not as social media but simply as infrastructure that lives in service to our community’s conversations, a new kind of digital space where power is distributed, where privacy is respected, and where advertising is nowhere to be found.
What we're looking for
We pride ourselves on bringing creative solutions into existence for the Community space and playing a part in connecting people in a meaningful way. As part of the design team, our UX Designer will be instrumental in shaping the future of Geneva. You will... design experiences for community leaders to create thriving groups, earn money, and moderate their spaces in new and unique ways.
We are looking for a strategic, original thinker with a passion for keeping up with the latest interaction trends and that understands the hallmarks of a solid UX foundation centered around best practices and prioritizing usability above all else.
