About us

Fair HQ is the first tech platform to help startups, scale-ups and VCs embed diversity & inclusion across their businesses and remove bias from their process & behaviours. Some of our customers have called Fair HQ their "Head of D&I", which we find both rewarding & fitting. We're an early stage startup backed by prominent London VCs amazing tech founders.

We exist because the world we’re living in today is not (yet) fair — someone's background & identity still influence how they're able to navigate the world of work. We're here to change that. Join us on our mission to create a truly meritocratic society. We're Fair (it's in the name!) — we don't judge you on your background, but on your passion, skills and experience.

About the role

As our product designer, you will help us evolve our product vision and user experience. You will act as a user advocate, helping us to uncover customer needs and create simple & elegant solutions.

You'll be working closely with our Founder & CEO Kate, who currently leads the product, with Bibi who's leading our scientific vision, and of course our product development team - our CTO Tracy, David on Frontend and Allan on Backend. We're also now hiring a full time product manager who will join the team soon. You will also have your very own design advisor - Majo, who has helped us build the Fair HQ product, brand and design system up to this point.

We are a fully remote team — your day will be a mix of Zoom calls, focused time working independently, and shared collaboration using online tools. That said, get ready for team retreats in exciting locations around Europe and the US.
