CarWoo! is looking for an outcome driven UX/UI designer that has a deep appreciation for simple and intuitive interface design. You are skilled in interaction, experience and visual design and will be responsible for facilitating the design process on new/existing projects, from participating in group ideation, research, and testing to providing deliverables (gasp!) like flows, wireframes, polished comps, etc.

This position is full-time and is based in our main offices in downtown Burlingame, CA (15 mins South of San Francisco, 20 mins North of Palo Alto, close to the CalTrain stations). We welcome applications from people anywhere in the United States, plus we help with moving expenses.


3+ years design experience (less if you're flat out awesome, more is even better)

A portfolio showcasing strong web UX/UI design skills with both web and mobile

A champion of product design and usability principles, you have to know why you believe what you believe

Strong familiarity with the tools of the trade. Like UXPin instead of Balsamiq? Use it.

You can design tests, user stories, wireframes, flows, and awesome finished comps.

Basic prototyping skills (HTML, CSS, Javascript).

The ability to collaborate within a small team, great personal and communication skills, and be comfortable working in a fluid work environment.

Stay up to date with what’s going on in the design world.

What does CarWoo! do?

We exist to create the best car buying and selling experience online. The auto industry has forever been legacy-riddled and regulated. We are working day and night to bring a modern form of car buying to the interwebs. Car buyers stay anonymous on our communication platform and dealers are given the opportunity to engage with them with powerful tools and insights. Our current product has brought 90% of the car transaction online, but there’s a long way to go.

Working at CarWoo!

You’ll get to work in a small, very smart, no BS kind of team. We’re smart, funny, and driven. Experience what a growing, well-funded, and successful start-up environment is like. Along with working hard, we have a lot of fun too! Ping pong, foosball, company parties, Nerf guns... you get the idea. Free lunch Fridays and unlimited supply of free snacks, drinks, alcohol, fruit, etc. Not seeing something you want in the treasure trove of goodies? We’ll order it from Costco.

Competitive salary with sweet perks like a 401k, bonuses, and other tantalizing things.

Great health care plan - vision, medical, dental.

You’ll get a brand-spankin-new 27 inch iMac
