As the old adage goes, "If you ship a feature but no customer hears about it...did the feature really ship?"

At Makelog, we're on a mission to help companies better communicate product changes to their customers and internal stakeholders. Today, sharing what ships is incredibly inefficient- especially for the fastest moving teams. The world's most successful companies realize that shipping velocity can't outpace communication velocity.

We're looking for a Founding Designer to voice and reimagine the way companies communicate product changes! In this role, you'll be designing new products and features to help customers reach goals both big and small, and helping us shape an exceptional user experience for a brand new category.

This is an Individual Contributor position with potential to grow into a management role as we scale.

Join us to shape a better, more effective way for companies to consistently share what they ship.

As Founding Product Designer you will:

  • Create intuitive, delightful modern user interfaces that guide users through a new way of communicating their changes

  • Be the voice of the customer by collaborating with our team on performing user research, extracting insights from user interviews to identify gaps and opportunities in their user experience, and designing solutions

  • Create wireframes, mocks and prototypes to validate with users, align our team, and clarify technical requirements

What you bring:

  • Experience as a Product Designer and comfort with interaction and visual design

  • A portfolio that showcases digital products you've designed from start to finish

  • An intuition for well designed software and beautiful, usable interfaces

  • Intrinsic curiosity and motivation to solve difficult problems for customers

  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills

You’ll be a great fit if you:

  • Have several years of UX/UI experience in-house at a B2B/SaaS software company

  • Are skilled at research, user experience, visual design, and interaction design

  • Have a knack for collaborating and communicating effectively with software engineers and technical users

  • Can enable rapid iteration within our product development team

  • Experience working efficiently with modern design tools like Figma

  • An open and growth mindset when giving and receiving feedback


  • Work remotely from anywhere

  • Competitive compensation, benefits, and meaningful equity

  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their dependents

  • Generous PTO policy and mental health days

  • Learning and Development stipend

  • The opportunity to build something that redefines the status quo of how product updates are compiled, curated, and distributed

About us

We are building a movement to fundamentally reimagine how companies communicate product changes.

We're backed by a tier 1 VC firm (soon to be announced!), as well as operator angels who've experienced this problem, including founders like Calvin French-Owen (Segment), Ilya Volodarsky (Segment), Ian Storm Taylor (Segment), Jeff Arnold (Pilot), Christine Yen (Honeycomb), and more.

Joining Makelog means joining a fast-moving early stage startup at the ground level, where you'll have massive impact in shaping how every company shares what ships.
