UX Designer

We believe that today's "digital identity" is fundamentally flawed. There are too many profiles, registration screens, passwords, privacy violations, data leaks, phishing attacks, and data mining operations out there. Our vision is to make the internet more secure and private with better software, open-source, and open knowledge. Ory is the largest open-source authentication and authorization (login, registration, MFA, permissions, OAuth2,...) ecosystem and community in the world. We develop open-source software and use it to build a scalable, easy-to-use, and secure cloud platform.

The UX Designer will join the Ory Creative team, collaborating with Engineering and Product Management to implement design solutions for Ory products. You will play a key role in communicating Ory’s values (i.e. transparency, usability, and simplicity) through product design choices.
