Gravity Sketch is a VC backed London-based startup transforming the future of digital creation. Our vision is to revolutionise 3D design and the way products are brought to life. We are developing the first 3D digital design platform focused on creative designers. We aim to positively disrupt the current design and engineering workflows, placing the user at the center of the creation process in hopes of accelerating the full development process. The platform is used by thousands of designers across the globe in industries such as transportation, industrial design, media and entertainment, and apparel.

Life At Gravity Sketch

We’re a small team of 25, we move quickly, take pride & ownership in our work, and aim to leave a real impact on the industry. Our culture is one of innovation, collaboration & creativity. We're looking for ambitious, passionate, and empathetic people who want to join us on our journey. As a fast-growing start-up we’re process-light and focus on innovating, doing the work of our lives. If you’re resourceful by nature and a great team player, you’ll fit right in.

At Gravity Sketch, you’ll drive your own projects and career development. We’ll support you in your individual goals as well as company goals; you’ll have access to unparalleled learning if you’re up for the challenge!

We work hard, and we play hard too

Whether we’re finding new ways for the whole team to listen to our company Spotify while remote, or playing Jackbox with colleagues there’s something for everyone from Beat Saber, to pub quizzes, to board game nights, to Zoom workouts, to collaborative fun sketching sessions in GS. We’re always open to trying new things if you want to share your hobby with the team!

What You'll Be Doing

You will work with the product team, users and the Customer Success team to understand the software inside out & build a deep understanding of the vision of Gravity Sketch, who we imagine users to be, who they really are, and how we can help them.

You will gather research on our users & customer base in a variety of ways (including a deep dive through the existing customer feedback & Discord channel) in order to understand issues they are having with the software, what the root cause of their issues are, and how we can solve problems in a “Gravity Sketch” way. This will involve logging the feedback from the research above in an organized way and logging requests from existing customer feedback and Discord feedback channel.

You’ll have an opportunity to take an active part in discussions about users, new features, and development challenges we might face in solving problems, and conduct interviews with our clients & power users, then collate and use that feedback.

Test and coordinate with users that are testing new features and prototypes, and be an active part in discussions around what works/doesn’t work, good/bad, pro/con

Role Progression

As you continue to grow in the role, you will work with the product team to come up with briefs to solve problems, and help us build, define, and come up with best practices of the Gravity Sketch design philosophy and a design culture across the company

Over time, you’ll work closely with the engineering team and design team to break down which problems and solutions we should tackle, how to solve user problems in an effective way. You will figure out the low hanging fruit, but also how we can schedule in larger scale improvements to the application.

For personal & professional development, you will actively learn Unity in order to enhance your prototyping abilities, with the goal to work closely with our design and engineering teams to create prototypes within our proof of concept developments on various features and areas of the software.
