Cinder provides a cutting-edge platform to protect the internet. Trust & Safety teams at the world’s most influential companies need powerful solutions that allow them to innovate and adapt as quickly as the threats they face. Companies rely on our software to make policies, moderate, enforce, investigate, and disrupt threats like hate groups, and state-sponsored disinformation campaigns.
This role is based in New York. While we operate as a fully remote company (no office) with teammates in the UK, DC, Austin, and SF, a lot of Cinder teammates live in NYC. We are therefore looking to build further on that foundation. We look forward to meeting candidates who are able to join us regularly for in-person days.
We generally believe in the value of frequent in-person meet-ups and learning face to face, which are built into every quarter. We offer health, vision & dental benefits and a 401(k) plan with employer matching.
For this role, we seek a creative, forceful designer with a keen visual sense to bring bold, product-focused thinking to the software used by the internet’s most critical content moderation, investigations, policy, operations, and security teams.
