About Blockspring:

Blockspring is the single hub to build, share, and discover tools and services.

About the job:

We're looking for a scrappy Product Designer to make the world's code accessible and useful for everyone.

Your day-job won't be to restyle buttons and take orders from a manager. You'll be creating unique interactions and flows, talking with users, making critical product decisions, and be actively involved in company vision, hiring, and messaging. As one of our first employees (potentially #1), you will grow fast as a designer, as a leader, and as an entrepreneur.

What about us? We are 3 full-stack devs. We've known each other for the past 7-10 years. We solve big problems and are funded to do so by Y Combinator along with the best angel and VC investors in the world. We share a wonderful office with another YC company in SOMA, San Francisco, and we also hang out at 1871 in Chicago.

When we talk, please have a Dribbble, GitHub, or portfolio ready to discuss. We'll let you know asap if there's a good fit. If your work is great but you're not a fit for any reason, we're happy to forward your resume along our network.

Hello Blockspring, I would like to know if the Lead Designer position is still open or if you have any other similar position currently open. I'm a French Graphic & UI/UX Designer for 16 years, currently based in France. But I would love to move to the SF Bay Area. In agency or as a freelancer, I worked for a large panel of clients, gaining a strong experience that equips me to present your company with advantages others may not offer. I have a strong hands-on experience in the Adobe CS Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects) and everything relative to graphic design, creative design, UI/UX design, brand identity, product design, booth & signage designs, print & packaging and also with all the majors operating systems on the market. I have also some skills in HTML/CSS but I'm definitely not a developer. I am proficient in English and, of course, fluent in French, my native language. I honestly think I am a good designer, a professional who love to exchange with others and try to ensure that everybody is on the same page as possible. Also, adapting to various work cultures, identifying and resolving bottlenecks and prioritizing have been striking features of my working style. In addition to the above, I strongly believe in learning and sharing my knowledge with my colleagues. I am open to learn and analyzing problems. I would welcome the chance to discuss any open position at your company. You can find my résumé on my website (http://hervedenjean.com/en) and would appreciate an opportunity to talk with you. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon. 
 Thank you for your consideration. 
 Sincerely, Hervé Denjean
