Sweet Tech is a sex-tech start-up that combines innovative hardware with customizable digital connectivity to bridge the gap between reality and fantasy and bring infinite pleasure for everyone. Our flagship product, The Handy, is available worldwide through our online store and connects out-of-the-box to our digital platform, Handy Feeling. Our aim is to be the world-leading provider of tech-enabled personalized pleasure — transforming the sexual experience while normalizing sexual curiosity and driving sex positivity.
We are a young but already profitable company, and we are backed by strong investors. We are growing fast, and we are looking for the right people to join us in our journey.
What you’ll be doing
Our software platform is what makes The Handy an amazing interactive experience. The Handy has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities and — through our APIs and front-end services — can connect to numerous video partners and community-created projects.
Today, the Handy can be controlled over the Internet — opening up the possibility of long-distance sexual experiences. It can also synchronize with video content, re-creating the experiences on screen in real life. Our open API allows developers to do things like integrate the Handy with products like Google Home or Amazon Echo, and connect the Handy to games and other media.
We have a team of talented designers working on our hardware and marketing presence, and now we are looking for a creative and visionary designer to help us make our software sing!
As one of the designers on the Engineering team, you will be responsible for designing user interfaces, performing user research, and setting the general usability experience across our software and hardware.
In this role, you will:
Collaborate with the Product team to build an excellent user experience
Design new wireframes for pages to meet product needs
Develop a design system that is visually consistent with the brand
Investigate the user experience at the point where software meets hardware
Work with product managers and developers to release products at a good pace
You will work on:
- Refining and expanding the current user experience on our connectivity platform
- Designing user flows on our mobile applications
Streamlining the shopping experience on our web store
- Creating content architecture for our technical resources
Working together with our developers to best realize our product vision
Establishing visual documentation and UX guidelines
You don’t need to be an expert in every tool we use — there’s a lot of room for specialization and learning — but you should be comfortable with Figma, Sketch, Miro, and similar design tools.
… Smart and ambitious, with a passion for start-ups and technology. You are creative, always willing to break new ground and come up with new and exciting ideas. You are open-minded, kind, and a team player who understands that we are all in this together.
In addition, we need you to:
- Living or be willing to relocate to Oslo, Norway (we will help you)*
Have a passion for great design and user experience
- Are interested in the interface between software and hardware products
