UI UX Designer - NY

NYC | Full-time


At Swimm, our mission is to help engineering teams radically improve their knowledge of the code through continuous and auto-synced documentation. With Swimm, Continuous Documentation becomes an integral part of the development lifecycle, making it a must for organizations that need to scale fast while maintaining the knowledge on their codebase. Swimm’s platform allows engineers to build documentation that includes “live” snippets and tokens from the codebase that auto-sync every time the code changes.

Swimm is an early-stage startup eager to make an impact on the developer’s day-to-day experience. In November 2021, Swimm launched its free open beta and announced a $27.6 million Series A funding round; Swimm’s total funding to date is $33.3 million.

One of Swimm’s growth pillars is the UI/UX Design position. This role is for someone that aspires to create great products that engineers are excited to use. The UI/UX Designer will join our NYC office and will work directly with the engineering team to create a sleek intuitive product.
