We have a simple mission at Calm: To make the world a happier and healthier place.
The heart of Calm is digital but the brand is expanding offline into a variety of products and services that bring more peace, clarity and perspective into people’s busy lives. We are building Calm into the Nike of the Mind. We believe Calm can become one of the most valuable and meaningful brands in the world.
Over 50 Million people have downloaded the app and we are growing by 85,000 new downloads a day. The company is profitable and headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
Calm was co-founded by Alex Tew (Million Dollar Homepage) and Michael Acton Smith (Mind Candy, Moshi Monsters, Firebox).
The Product Designer will be working across platforms to elevate Calm's offering in a variety of digital and physical spaces. Having an adept capacity to apply appropriate design methodologies to match the requisites of the projects is key. We have a rapidly growing product which is catalyzed by a fast-paced environment. Nimbleness matched with efficacy are intrinsic qualities to this role.
A great fit for this role will love talking to others about their work in structured and unstructured settings. A person who thinks great product design ideas can come from anyone in the company, and has an open ear to those perspectives. At Calm we believe in making relaxation, better sleep, and mindfulness more accessible through digital and non-digital products, and we hope you will help us achieve our mission.
