We're hiring a full-time Senior Product Designer to take over the future of our music notation editor (web, mobile, and native iOS app). Join us as we make music composition better for and more accessible to everyone!
🎼 About Flat
Flat, created by Tutteo Ltd., is an online music notation platform that empowers music enthusiasts to create, learn, and share music scores, tabs, and lead sheets. We believe that the old fashion sheet music industry has come to a point where it needs to be renewed. Through Flat and our other products, we define a new way to write, teach, and consume written music.
We are smoothly expanding our team (we're soon to be 11 people) and we are strongly investing in improving every aspect of the company - our products, our branding, our marketing, our processes, and so on.
We have launched to date 2 growing and profitable products, gathering an active and engaged community of more than 2.6M users:
- Flat (http://flat.io) - our online music notation platform (web and native iOS app) - the one you'll be mostly responsible for.
- Flat for Education - our music teaching platform aiming at making music education playful and engaging.
Two years ago, we started to experiment with the Flat iOS app. We started to monetize it a year ago and build a growth strategy on the AppStore. To date, it's 4087 ratings with an average of 4.55 / 5, used by more than 60k unique composers every month. You can check it out here: [AppStore](https://apps.apple.com/us/app/flat-music-score-tab-editor/id1177592149)
👉 You will be primarily responsible to step up the game of this mvp app so it meets the same level of usability as our web platform.
