Artsy is the leading online platform for art. We’ve partnered with hundreds of galleries and museums, from Gagosian Gallery to The Guggenheim Museum, to create a platform to learn about, discuss, and collect art.
Through access and education, we envision a world where a passion for art is just as common as it is for music today. Our goal is to make all fine art accessible to anyone in the world via any internet-connected device, from web, to mobile, to touch.
Design at Artsy
Design is key in creating experiences worthy of art. At Artsy this insight is shared among our designers, engineering team, art teams, and business leadership.
The design team, with backgrounds from IDEO, Facebook, and Method etc, works closely together in a culture of feedback in order to sharpen our craft, thinking, and impact.
Our current products include Artsy.net, our iPhone app, an in-room bidding experience for Auctions, a mobile-enabled experience for art fairs, an iOS based sales tool and other services for our partners. Our future roadmap is just as rich and we're waiting for you to help shape it.
Craft experiences over web, mobile, and in the physical space; leading design from conception to implementation.
Work closely with engineers, art historians, data scientists, writers and other designers.
Help grow a collaborative, optimistic, and supportive culture.
Strong product thinker. You turn user needs and business goals into clear and compelling services that keep people coming back over and over again.
Excellent interaction design skills. You’ve seen people struggle with your solutions and learned from it.
Strong visual design sensibility. You create and evolve visual systems, and help push presentation of art to new heights.
Experience working with quantitative data to inform design decisions. We believe great design is created in the intersection of rational analysis and creative leaps.
Art world experience or knowledge is not required. We're all avid learners.
First and foremost, you get to work with an amazing team. We invest an extraordinary amount of time finding the best possible people. As you know, one great designer is better than a hundred good ones.
In addition to design, technology is at the core of Artsy. This means you will get to work with some of the best engineers in the world, who are passionate about creating experiences that push the bleeding edge of technology. See our open-source contributions and engineering blog.
We're dedicated to maintaining a strong, positive culture as we grow. We value giving and receiving feedback and value transparency around business and strategy. The Netflix Culture slides describe how we think about culture at Artsy.
