About the product team

You will be part of the team who is working on our most exciting and famous chemical drawing tool called Marvin. You can have a guess where the name comes from during our first call.

This is one of our core chemistry tools so you need to be open to deepen your understanding of the domain but we don’t expect you to have a deeper understanding at this point than what you picked up during your highschool studies.

The tool is all about interactions with chemical and graphical elements where the tiny details make the difference in users' perceived experience. One senior UX designer and two UX researchers will help you in your everyday work beside those developers who are already infected by the importance of UX. The team itself sits on the higher end of the UX maturity spectrum so you should expect strategic discussions with the Product Manager, constructive arguments with the developers and a lot of inputs from the researchers and domain experts.
