We’re working with seed stage startup that’s creating a unified interface that can be used to access information across a wide variety platforms - slack, email, notion, google drive, etc.

They have some very senior advisors based in NYC and SF helping them out but they need a full time, in house, product designer to help them push things forward.

Specifically, they’d be looking for help on the UX front, creating PRDs, and conducting user research in roughly that order.
