Want to build the future of the cloud?
Overclock Labs is the creator of Akash Network - the world's first open-source and decentralized marketplace for cloud compute, enabling anyone to become a cloud provider by offering unused compute on an open marketplace. As more of the internet moves to the cloud, we are materializing the vision of the first decentralized cloud in an industry projected to reach $2.4 trillion in total market capitalization by 2030. Our team includes renowned open-source and blockchain developers, and seasoned experts from leading technology and platform companies. We are a remote-first, distributed, and growing team — offering unparalleled opportunities for career growth at the emerging intersection between crypto, AI, and permissionless compute.
The Role:
As a Sr. Product Designer at Overclock Labs, you will work closely with the product and engineering teams to design the user experience and interfaces that will be used by our customers and partners. This includes, working on UX and design for Akash Deployment Console (UI), Provider Console (UI) and Command-Line-Interface design (CLI) as well as contributing to design of some web and documentation assets that connect to the products - like the GPU pricing page, the stats page, API pages and more (that we haven’t even conceived of yet!). While we are 100% remote, the preference is for this person to be located in North America or being willing to work North American times, since that is where our product and engineering teams currently reside.
Our Stack:
Designs are currently done primarily in Figma, and Tailwinds is used for UI components
Golang, JavaScript, Kubernetes & Docker are other key technologies used. Check out the Akash Network open source code base at:
