Work at Sketch is some of the most challenging and rewarding I’ve done. I’m constantly inspired by the talented people I get to work with.
We’ve been a fully distributed company since day one and we cannot imagine it any other way. Today, there are over 100 of us, working together across more than 25 countries. We’ve never really had an office and we don’t plan to open one. And that decision has shaped our values.
Freedom and trust
Being remote-first (and remote-only) means we place a lot of value on freedom and trust. Everyone here can make decisions and get things done in a way that makes sense to them.
Our industry is always evolving, and it’s up to us to make an impact where it counts. So we work hard to stay flexible, adapt and always be ready for change.
Owning our work
We believe in taking ownership and responsibility for what we do, working proactively, figuring things out, and asking for forgiveness rather than permission.
Here’s what happens after you apply:
- If we’re interested in your application, we’ll kick things off with a call to get to know you better, understand your current situation, your motivations and your goals.
- Often, we’ll ask you to complete a practical exercise to give us an idea of how you work, communicate, and solve problems. This could be a coding challenge, a short quick task or a presentation you’ll give in your next interview. It’s also your chance to see how we work, get to know our product and understand our challenges.
- Your final interview stages will include a written Slack chat. It’s how we communicate every day at Sketch, and we want to make sure you feel comfortable with it. If it’s your first time interviewing over Slack, don’t worry. Just hit return often, ignore your typos and remember to have fun!
- Whether you’re successful or not with us, we’ll always give you feedback. It’s our way of saying thanks for the time and effort you put in to applying.
