Designers of the TIME 2018 Best Invention ‘ROOM One’ Need a Product Designer

ROOM is here to make room for people in the modern workplace. They create thoughtful designs that inspire new ideas, fresh perspectives, and a better way to work. Their first product is a soundproof phone booth for the open office. It takes away the noise and makes room for what’s essential. ROOM delivers directly from factory to business and keeps prices low so that their clients can invest in bigger ideas down the road, by rethinking and refining every step of the customer experience they offer thoughtful, modular solutions that grow with the business, leading the way to better Mondays and a brighter future. Since launching in May 2018, Room has acquired over 2000 clients, ranging from budding startups to Fortune 500 companies, such as JP Morgan, Nike, Google, and Salesforce. They are backed by Slow Ventures and notable angel investors from Silicon Valley, and TIME named our product one of the Best Inventions of 2018. ROOM’s belief is simple: What makes you different is what allows them to be different. They value diversity not only in terms of race, gender, sexual orientation, and religious background but also in the way you think and approach challenges.  Not only are they committed to creating a work environment where you can be yourself and but also ensure that everybody’s voice is heard. Diversity isn’t something the company simply preaches but something they practice everyday and taking care of their team is always a top priority. Apply now if you’re interested in creating solutions that improve life at work and are looking for a culture of growth, freedom, and accountability!

Designed with recycled materials and engineered to perfection, Room’s soundproof office phone booths are seamless, sustainable and simple, and was named one of the Best Inventions of 2018 by TIME.
