This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a well-funded AI startup. You will be the first design hire and will report directly to the designer co-founder. Offers come with substantial equity grants and our culture is built around shared wins, so success drives large career, financial, and personal growth.
AI will transform every industry – but only when it’s accessible to everyone, not just data scientists. Akkio makes it simple to take advantage of the power of AI by combining highly efficient machine learning with a simple and easy to use interface. We’re looking for data savvy, analytical designers to expand and refine Akkio’s user experience. To be the right fit you must believe in our mission and be excited to work in a small, dynamic startup team.
