Sr. Product Designer / Product Designer - NYC

| Greater NYC Area
Company Description
At HyperScience, we use modern machine learning to turn documents into machine-readable data. Our customers receive a wide variety of documents, like life insurance applications, paystubs, utility bills, insurance claims, that must be processed quickly and accurately to better serve the people at these organizations, and their customers. Amazingly, this is all done manually today. We’re on a mission to change that!
Our product is already delivering value to large, blue-chip organizations in financial services and insurance, and we see a massive opportunity to expand to more industries and automate more business processes. We are looking for people who are excited to help us build upon this foundation and vision.
Founded in 2014 by Peter Brodsky, Vladimir Tzankov, and Krasimir Marinov, Hyperscience has raised over $48 million from SV Angel, The Stripes Group, Firstmark, Battery Ventures, and Felicis Ventures.

An Insider's view of HyperScience

What are some social events your company does?

Outside of company-sponsored lunch daily, we do birthday & anniversary celebrations, dessert breaks, and company outings. It’s pretty common to get together for drinks after work or go to karaoke as a team. When our team from Sofia visits, we like to do something social outside the office, whether it’s lunchtime basketball game or rooftop drinks.

John Lee

Talent Acquisition Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re working on building a Machine Learning model that allows our customers to process more types of documents, which will help significantly with their workflow. I’m excited to visit customer on-sites to see how different customers use our product. We’re here to make people’s lives easier so understanding specific use cases is always valuable.

Sarah

Product Designer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Working at a fast-growing startup means that you’ll need to make decisions quickly and decisively, often with limited information. I’m learning that I’ll be wrong at times and this is okay — as long as I recognize why it didn’t work out and quickly pivot. This comes with continuously asking for feedback to make more informed decisions as a team.

Lindsay Bu

Product Operations Associate

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We operate a growth mentality across all aspects of our business. Every team member is expected to go radically beyond normal expectations. This requires bold ideas coming from everyone. Once we choose a path to follow, we will all get behind it, irrespective of whose idea it was.

Charlie Newark-French

Chief Operating Officer

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of our team is someone who shows up and gives 110% every day, is not afraid to ask for help and uses constructive criticism to better themselves. We represent the entire organization with new clients, and we’re excited to be the first touchpoint that works to understand their pain points and articulate our mission and value.
