What is Monograph?

Monograph is modernizing design professionals’ back office with a beautiful, data-driven platform to help them manage, plan, and grow their companies. Our mission is to let architects get back to doing what they love and do best—design—not finance, management, or Excel.

Why work at Monograph?

  • Design Foundation: You will be joining a company where all the founders are trained as designers, Designer Fund is an investor, and design is core to every decision.
  • People first: You are an (awesome) human before an employee—we believe in people first and empathy. You'll be our ambassador and deploy your genuine value for relationships to drive success and happiness.
  • Create a tool that will redefine architecture: Project management is just the beginning. We are starting to help facilitate the entire design process from becoming the project source of truth to coordinating with consultants. You can shape the future of building design.

What will you do at Monograph as a senior frontend engineer?

  • Contribute to product brainstorms: You’ll whiteboard ideas with the team, provide and receive feedback, and iterate concepts, designs and interactions.
  • Prototype ideas: You’ll sketch and prototype ideas to understand viability, time needed to execute and user experience.
  • Ship lots of code: You’ll help translate feature requests and user experience issues into shippable designs and code.
  • Build and evolve our design system: You'll continue to grow and improve our existing design system by extending components and adding new ones to our library.

What skills do you need

  • 5 years of experience in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (ideally a framework like React or Vue).
  • Motivation to think and learn independently; you’ll often be expected to test, research and/or prototype an answer to a question before bringing it up to the team.
  • Strong ability to think in systems, understanding that our product is an interconnected organization of components that perform both discrete and global functions.
  • Some familiarity designing UI systems, dashboards and/or digital products.
  • Willingness to take on responsibility. As part of a small team you’ll be given significant autonomy and the opportunity to take on more leadership as the project grows.
  • Attention to detail.

Interview process

  1. Cover letter review over email: Your first touch point is the initial email you send us. As a remote team, we value articulate, succinct expression of important points. This step may include follow up questions and clarifications.
  2. Video chat screen (30 min): You give us an opportunity to meet and ask each other questions. We'll talk 50:50 about career and life. With a 4-day work week, we're especially curious what you might do on your day off.
  3. Project presentation (1 hr): You'll present a past project that you find particularly compelling. If for privacy or other reasons, you aren't able to share we can also do a design challenge.
  4. Team meeting (30 min): You'll get a chance to meet other members of the team including sales, marketing, and success to get a vibe of our culture and how you might fit in.
  5. CEO meeting (30 min): You have made it this far! This is your final meeting and gives you the chance to ask more high-level questions about the mission and goals of Monograph and yourself.
