~ I’m Marisa, also known as
~riprud-tidmel, VP of Product at Tlon Corp, and the person hiring for this role. If you join our team, we’d get to work closely together.
My quick pitch for this role is if you want to build an OS for web 3 that doesn’t suck – Tlon is the only place to do it. We’ve been thinking about this for years, before crypto and web 3, whatever that means, even existed. You’d join a team of talented, obsessed, and unique individuals working on rebuilding the personal computer for the 21st century. We’re fighting against the algorithmic, attention-seeking, centralized products of MEGACORPs, with one computer (Urbit), one OS (Landscape), one product (Groups), at a time.
I think this role is a good fit if you:
Tlon designs elegant social software for communication, collaboration, and commerce. Built for people and posterity, our toolkit restores an ethos of digital sovereignty back to personal computing. As an eclectic team with a variety of professional backgrounds, we share a strong sense of optimism and together work earnestly to develop tools that are above all intended to be useful every day.
The opportunity to design an OS from the ground up is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You’ll do just that focusing on Tlon’s OS currently called Landscape. Within Landscape, we are building a collection of tools to make your urbit useful everyday: Notes, Collections, and Chat. All of these apps work modularly with our featured application, Groups, which is like a decentralized Discord, but one that you own and is modular, infinitely customizable, and spamless.
Currently, you’ll join a team of four designers: two product focused, and two marketing focused. Most of the design team is based in NYC. However, Tlon Corp. is fully remote.
