Thumbtack finds local professionals for almost anything.

Product Designer
San Francisco, CA, US
Job Description / Skills Required

Here at Thumbtack, we’re building the easiest way for people to hire local professionals for projects big and small. From house painting to personal training and everything in between, we match customers to the right pros for all of life’s projects.



Thumbtack’s design team is a tight­-knit group charged with creating powerful user experiences, evolving the company’s visual brand, and cultivating design-­forward thinking across all departments. This is so much more than making things pretty. We’re building clean, usable product experiences that are as delightful as they are intuitive. Through open collaboration with engineers, product managers, and marketing, the design team works hard to help customers and independent professionals navigate Thumbtack easily and get more done.



As a product designer, you’ll be expected to create clean, great looking product designs and passionately advocating for the user in your work and feedback. We’re looking for a seasoned pro—a critical thinker with sharp intuition who’s comfortable talking about design as it relates to the needs of the business. As an instrumental part of the design team, your insights will not only help influence product development, but will also provide valuable perspective to branding and marketing initiatives across the company.
