About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

Notion is an in person company, and currently requires its employees to come to the office for two Anchor Days (Mondays & Thursdays) and requests that employees spend the majority of their week in the office (including a third day).

About The Role

Imagine yourself in the 1970s or 80s thinking through how computing should look and feel for people who had never seen one before. That's what we're trying to do at Notion — make software that feels timeless, with the craftsmanship of German cameras, playfulness of Japanese toys, and mass appeal of Coca-Cola. We have no end of fascinating challenges that can only be solved by someone with innate product & UX sense, technical aptitude, great taste, and impeccable craft.

What You'll Achieve:

  • Design product concepts that balance vision, craft, speed, and business potential.
  • Craft every detail of new product features, from idea to UX to pixel-perfect execution.
  • Run projects end to end with engineers to drive your vision to the ship line.
  • Partner closely with our Customer Experience, Sales, and Customer Success teams to understand what each of our diverse user segments need, want, and love about Notion. Use this data and acquired intuition to prioritize, plan, and scope our product roadmap.
  • Work with Marketing to devise new ways to tell great stories throughout the user lifecycle, and across our site, product, help guides and other channels.
  • Create new patterns that are intuitive, practical, and convergent. Evolve our design system intentionally as we scale.

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • You have well-rounded skills and experience to run projects independently end to end. 5+ years of working experience.
  • You seek to understand the needs of customers then explore and advocate for the strongest user experiences to solve their problems
  • You enjoy untangling vague conceptual problems and have a sharp intuition for the most accessible mental models and flows, so users can immediately start gaining value out of the product.
  • You create clear, intuitive, and visually appealing human interfaces.
  • You care about business needs, implications, and practicality of your designs. You don't get stuck on pretty UI or deep abstractions and can balance between craft, speed, and the bottom line.
  • You have strong beliefs, loosely held. You're a good listener who collaborates well with different stakeholders. You observe and internalize all inputs and feedback to help you reach an optimal decision.
  • You understand how to tell stories using both words and visuals, and strategize the best ways to drive alignment.
  • You value working cross-functionally with project management, engineering, research and data — as well as design peers.

Nice to Haves:

  • You've designed and built great tools with small teams in the past.
  • You bring unique strengths and perspectives to the team. We're looking to build a diverse team where our skills and experience can complement each other.
  • You've experienced the pain of fragmented tools and information silos created by them, and have a strong urge to fix it.
  • You're familiar with the work of computing heroes like Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, Bret Victor, etc. — and understand why we're big fans.
  • You are a designer who can code!

We hire talented and passionate people from a variety of backgrounds because we want our global employee base to represent the wide diversity of our customers. If you’re excited about a role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every bullet point listed in the job description, we still encourage you to apply. If you’re a builder at heart, share our company values, and enthusiastic about making software toolmaking ubiquitous, we want to hear from you.

We do not discriminate in hiring or any employment decision based on race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or other applicable legally protected characteristic.

An Insider's view of Notion

What's something quirky about your company?

The most unique thing I've experienced here is a series called "Life Stories" where a Notino shares a condensed version of their life in 45 minutes. It's an opportunity to hear about people's backgrounds and the experiences that defined them allows us to work together in a way that highlights people's strengths and unique perspectives.

Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I find that engineers do a lot more product thinking here. At Notion, UX, PM, and engineers work closely together to craft the right user experience together. We ask ourselves: are we actually solving the user need? Can we solve this more efficiently? I love that engineers are empowered to give feedback and propose alternate solutions.

Penny

Software Engineer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Working with a team that is so smart and humble at the same time creates a unique energy and I love exchanging thoughts with my colleagues. Everybody is passionate about our mission and lifts each other up.

What are Notion Perks + Benefits

Notion Benefits Overview

We work to make sure our employees have what they need to succeed.

We offer 100% health insurance coverage for employees and dependents. This includes medical, dental, and vision premiums. You and your dependents will have access to a provider that can create a personalized treatment plan such as digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy programs, coaching, therapy, navigation support, medication management, and EAP services. Our fertility benefit gives you employer-sponsored funds you can use to pay for fertility treatments and family-forming services. Notion makes it easy to save money for retirement. There’s also employer matching!

We want you to take time off to rest and rejuvenate. Notion offers unlimited paid vacation as well as 10+ observed holidays by country.

We believe employees should have access to paid time off for pivotal life events that may fall outside of traditional leaves. Full-time employees can take up to 10 days of paid leave in a rolling 6-month period for bereavement, pregnancy loss, abortion procedures, recovery, and related travel, legal proceedings (e.g., custody hearings, legal components of gender affirmation, proceedings concerning incidents of sexual violence or sexual harassment), or bereavement following the death of a pet.

We offer Notinos a monthly stipend to use towards services that fit their personal needs. This gives you the opportunity to choose your own adventure and use the funds toward things that matter the most to you.

We offer biological, adoptive, and foster parents paid time off to spend quality time with family.

We offer a generous monthly subsidy for your commute.
