Who We Are

I’m Chris, the co-founder & CEO and I was diagnosed with ADHD last year. I frustratingly hunted for a behavioral solution that would help me gain control over my life and goals—to no avail. True ADHD style, I hyperfocused on learning all there is to learn about ADHD & ADHD solutions, and that was how Shimmer was born. And the rest of our team is just like me: passionate about making positive change for ADHD lives, and hyperfocus-style hungry:

  • We are infinitely in-tune with the end user: Serving the ADHD population is no easy feat, but we’re up for the challenge. Intuitive, accessible, engaging designs are table-stakes at every level
  • We are deeply empathetic and human-driven: We are for humans with ADHD, by humans with ADHD—humans are at the core of what we do. We don’t take things at face value, and always strive to understand the deeper meaning & motivation
  • We expect results (because what we’re doing matters) and we’ll help you get there: We are a high performance team and we never stop learning. We expect you to challenge us and push us further.

Who You Are

You’re a design generalist with a keen eye for clean, engaging visual design, a strong product-thinking mindset, and strength in shipping experiences from ideas to high-fidelity mockups (e.g. Figma)

  • You’re a self-starter. We are a small, nimble team and we don’t let anyone stop us from our goals. You treat challenges like gifts and make things happen when others give up.
  • You’re obsessed with the customer. You love members raving about the feature you’ve designed, and you get off on the positive impact it’s had on their lives.
  • You solve real problems. You live for solving real problems that will positively impact those who need it the most.
  • You believe that profits and impact are not at odds with each other.
  • (You have ADHD. Either you or someone close to you has ADHD. You deeply understand the ADHD brain and want to build products that help it thrive.)

What You’ll Do

We’re building quickly, and it won’t be easy.

  • You’ll be THE (only) designer. You will be the only design person. You can own everything from UX to UI to design. If you don’t know it, you’ll learn it. You’ll lead scoping and end-to-end design of new features to support members and coaches in our platform (iOS, Android, Web)
  • You’ll strategize with us. The product experience is literally one of the most important things (and hardest things!) for us to get right. You’ll help us build the roadmap, prioritize, re-prioritize, and re-prioritize.
  • You’ll talk to members and coaches: You’ll be in charge of both the web and mobile platform design. You’ll need a deep understanding of both how members use the app and how coaches do.
  • You’ll drive our brand identity: You’ll own visual and graphic design for our brand identity, product marketing, and other external-facing communications. You’ll also maintain and build onto our growing design system, with the goal of creating scalable, reusable systems as our team grows.

What We’ll Navigate Together

Startups are not easy, and we love that. We’re solving a massive UNSOLVED problem for a population with incredible untapped potential.

  • There will be rocky times and euphoric times. We won’t sugar coat it, you’ll be in the trenches with us and we’ll figure it out together.
  • We’ll disagree. We will listen to each other, go back to first principles, and put our ego aside as we arrive at the best answer for our customers. This is our growing zone.
  • We’ll work really hard. We take our jobs seriously and know it’s a privilege to work on such an important and engaging problem. The best things in life don’t come easy—You like working hard and seeing change in the world from your hard work.

What You’ll Get

Startups are equally fun & rewarding—that’s why we do it right? To change the world.

  • You’ll learn a lot. We push each other everyday to be better (e.g. I learned design in a few months!) and you’ll undoubtedly grow.
  • You’ll have fun. Our team is small, and each of us is here because we love it.
  • You’ll make a huge impact. If you’ve read the testimonials on our website, you know what I mean.

If you’re intrigued, you’re in the right place.

*We envision this role to start at 20h/week for Aug/Sep and move to full-time by year end if there is a mutual desire to do so. If you move to full-time, there will be cash-equity pay.
