18Birdies provides golf tools and community to help our customers play better golf and enjoy their golf lives. Golf is growing, as is the diversity of golfers- both young golfers and new golfers are fast growing parts of the 18Birdies community. Technology has made golf accessible and affordable for more people and we are proud to be the leaders in providing that technology. We value design and UX as critical ingredients to providing a successful consumer product, and feel these are key reasons we have the highest customer rating of any mobile golf app and are the industry leader in downloads for 2020, 2021, and 2022.
We have a small, fully remote team in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, and our development team is in Shanghai, China. We are now seeking a design leader to help our customers play golf with confidence, and are excited to grow our team. This role will require clear communication with our development team in China, so Chinese/Mandarin language fluency is a requirement for this position. A designer based in the Bay Area is preferred, but we are open to someone working remotely outside the Bay Area.
