Vook is building beautiful, modern tools that are changing the publishing industry. Our tools give authors far more control over how they publish, and unprecedented insight into how their books are reaching readers. We’re already working with thousands of authors and dozens of the largest media companies including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Google, Fast Company – and we're just getting started.
We believe thoughtful, beautiful, and usable design will make the difference between being just another publisher and changing the industry. We all care about creating remarkable experiences. We sweat the details, from perfect pixels to clear copy. Design is the process of making hard choices; we think about each choice, trying to craft software that delivers what authors really want with simplicity and elegance.
As Vook’s lead product designer, you will lead our product direction and voice. You’ll work with Josh (CEO) and Ben (head of product) to produce exceptional experiences that put authors and books at the center. You’ll work on product design, visual design, user interactions, marketing materials, and the brand and voice of the company. You’ll have the authority and freedom to impact our product direction in major ways. You'll lead design, but you'll have the support of two other designers – Ben and Marc – when you need help.
Your work will enable authors to create and publish beautiful books in minutes, understand how readers find their books on digital retailers like Amazon, and take the right steps to help their books reach more readers.Apply
