At Fog Creek Software, we love great design and know how important it is.
But to be honest, our company was founded by developers, not designers. We need your help!
To put it simply, although we’ve built a great engine – think
Porsche Turbo 911 – it’s in the body of VW. You’re going to change all
This is not just a job; it’s a mission.
It is an opportunity to visually redesign our best-selling, award
winning software that has just celebrated a decade of success.
Your creations will be seen by over 15,000 companies, in more than
120 countries, with over 150,000 users.

That includes three major products currently under active development
and a bunch of websites that support them.
