Senior Product Designer
Yumi is looking for a seasoned Senior Product Designer with amazing software design skills and strong experience building native mobile and web based applications and user experiences. Yumi is a rapidly growing DTC brand delivering fresh baby food to households weekly.
Based in Los Angeles, Yumi is a nutrition brand transforming the way parents approach mealtime with healthier meals and content tailored to your baby and delivered directly to your door. A passionate team of parents, nutritionists, engineers, and people who are simply committed to a healthier future, we were appalled by the glut of highly processed, nutrient poor options at the grocery store. We believe families deserve better options especially for the first 1,000 days, a period recognized by the scientific community as the most important period in a human's life for nutrition and development. Through nutrition and content rooted in science, we want to help parents connect the dots between food and development and raise the standards of the entire market for childhood nutrition. We're well-funded, rapidly-growing and sparking a national movement that's transforming a $48 billion industry.
If you're stoked by our mission and have an entrepreneurial-go-get-em-fire, we'd love to add you to the fam. Let's raise a healthier generation together!
Since launching in late 2017, Yumi has become a leader in childhood nutrition, with extensive coverage in the New York Times, New Yorker, CNN, Fast Company, goop, Vogue, WSJ, Food & Wine. We've also backed by some of the top luminaries in the direct to consumer landscape, including the founders of Warby Parker, Sweetgreen, Uber, Allbirds, and Casper.
We're looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our fast growing team. We're obsessed with food, kids and great design and are looking for a designer to kick off a number of digital projects we have on the horizon!
