Full-time Product Designer

at Contentful GmbH in Berlin, Germany


Contentful is a different type of CMS. In fact, Contentful is more than one thing on its own. It’s a content management system, a content backend, a content API, a web content editor – not to mention a team of 60 enthusiastic people. Customers like Nike, Urban Outfitters, and Axel Springer use Contentful’s APIs to power mission critical web apps, mobile apps, and many other smart device experiences. Still, we are eager to do one thing well: making content available to developers. That way it’s simpler for them to build digital products, as they have more freedom to use the technologies and the tools they love.


Our focus during 2016 is on rethinking extensibility capabilities, improving usability and aesthetics of the application and improving our onboarding to the API-driven world. Since Contentful is not an ordinary CMS, and is used by a variety of personas such as developers, but also by less technical users such as editors, writers, translators and reviewers, your work will be professionally challenging.

You will be the fourth member of our product design team. Your focus will be on tactical work – solving concrete problems by working closely with one of the cross-functional development teams. For example, you might be working on in-app onboarding, redesigning our text editor or improving content modeling. Besides engineers, you will work with designers, product managers, copywriters and people from other departments. You will also be involved in user research, persona development and usability testing so experience with before-mentioned is welcome.

Having all this in mind, this would be a position for someone who has a diverse experience and fresh ideas to share with us. We don’t believe in unicorns, but we believe in people who are design generalists and excel at some skills. A “T” or “M” shaped persons, if you like. Empathy is the key skill we’re looking for so we need people who can leave their ego at the door.


You will be able to pick the tools you feel comfortable and productive with. From hardware to software, to your work environment, we’ve literally got your back. It’s your choice if you work from home, in our living room, in one of the conference rooms or from your office desk.

You will enjoy a significant training budget (money and time) that you can spend on conferences and courses.

We fully support your move to Berlin with a relocation budget. We also get your back in terms of settling down in a new city.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company.

The last but not the least, we provide you with stock options.
