Careers at Sketch

Help over one million people create their best work.

Over the last ten years, Sketch has had a lasting impact on the design industry — but our work has only just begun! We have some ambitious plans to help people create their best work and design better products — and we need change-makers, open minds and fresh ideas to make them a reality.

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.

Offices

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.

Embracing change

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.

Benefits

From flexible hours and company equity, to laptops and unlimited leave — working here comes with some great benefits.

Flexibility

With no set hours, you can work to a schedule that makes sense for you.

Unlimited vacation

Plus extra time for honeymoons, moving and starting a family.

Professional development

A generous learning budget to help you develop.

Hardware and software

A powerful laptop and any software you need for your job.

Annual meetup

Work and play together, in-person, every year.

Work anywhere

No need to relocate or commute to an office, because we don’t have one.

Company equity

The chance to benefit from our future success.

Our process

We value your time and the effort you put in to applying for a role with us, so we’ll do our best to make your application and interview process as enjoyable as possible. We aim for no more than four interviews in total, and we’ll keep you informed about what to expect at every stage.

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.
