Lead UI Designer

What is Dirtcube?

 

Dirtcube Interactive LLP is a digital entertainment and interactive media startup located in the Mumbai area. We are a studio with one goal in mind - build products that engage, immerse and entertain. Since our founding, we have built up a team of passionate individuals and laid the groundwork for expertise in mobile gaming and social media applications. Our core focus currently lies in hypercasual games, and our flagship social media app Capshot, which is a social platform for memes and bite sized entertainment.

 

At Dirtcube we are constantly brainstorming new ideas, and how to improve our existing products. In order to bring our ideas to life, we are looking to expand our team and bring a talented, passionate and ambitious UI designer into the Dirtcube family to imbue our products with a grade A visual experience!


 

What you will do

Capshot

 

Capshot is a social media platform for bite-sized humour and entertainment. Unlike other social media applications out there in the market today, our focus is on empowering our users to collaboratively create entertaining content to share with each other - hence multiplying the laughs and increasing engagement! You will be building on what the app currently is, by improving and unifying the UI and experience, designing new features, and utilizing your talents to help achieve business goals such as user retention and engagement metrics through juicing up areas that need improvement, and completely revamping modules where necessary.

Bring new ideas to life

We are currently preparing to begin a new ambitious project which you would be joining right from scratch. You will be working closely with our founders and developers to design the product from the ground up. Our ideal candidate is someone who can contribute not just within their role, but also add to the overall product itself with their ideas and creativity.

  • Minimum 2+ years of professional experience, across the field of mobile and web design.

Life at Dirtcube

Working at Dirtcube would instantly make you realize one thing - you are working with a group of individuals who add a little part of themselves to every project, every game. We encourage every person to take ownership of the games they work on and refuse to limit creativity. An idea can come from anywhere, from anyone.

 

Real talk: pushing oneself comes with the role and should be expected in order to grow. Members of Dirtcube have a constant thirst to learn skills not just within their roles, but across disciplines. We believe in creating a work environment that makes everyone feel that they have skin in the game and provide individuals with a sense of belonging.

 

We do not believe in ‘work timings’ because we do not use ‘hours spent’ as a metric for calculating productivity. Our focus lies on the results and the actual tangible work produced. Job designations are in name only - every member of Dirtcube operates at a capacity that sometimes cannot be described in a single word, and contributes their talents across roles.

 

We strive to make working at Dirtcube a unique, enjoyable and sometimes eccentric experience. After all, what fun is it to stay within a box? If you feel at home reading this, get in touch!
