Who we are

Magma Partners is a leading Latin American venture capital firm. Founded in 2014, Magma has invested in 125+ top startups that are solving Latin America’s biggest problems and driving top-tier returns for our investors.  

Our creative team not only designs all things internal to Magma, but also works directly with our portfolio companies. We both advise and lead design initiatives (decks, branding, etc) to help our portfolio companies look the part and reach their goals. Occasionally, the team will also be asked to provide feedback on new investment decisions.

Our team is fully remote, distributed across Latin America, with presence in Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Argentina and USA.

What we need

We are looking for a motivated, self-driven UI/UX Designer who will play a key role on our Design team. We work on many different design initiatives at the same time, both internal to Magma and with our portfolio companies, and want someone who enjoys working on a wide range of design projects. 

What you’ll do (written format, then Responsibilities below)

You will work closely with Rogelio Lopez, Mak Gutierrez, Nathan Lustig, Pedro del Campo and the rest of the Magma team in order to amplify brands and support the startup ecosystem in Latin America.

As UI/UX Designer, you will help design the Magma UI & UX as well as work with our portfolio of startups to help them better boost their brands, allowing them to grow and solve many of Latin America’s biggest problems.

Responsibilities

  • Create design concepts and prototypes for digital products (websites, apps and presentations) under the direction of the Magma Head of Design. 
  • Development of Design Systems.
  • Participate in branding projects.
  • Research and make UX suggestions to improve user experiences.
  • Present design ideas and participate in creative meetings with the rest of the design and development team.
  • Stay up to date on industry and market trends.
  • Coordinate with the rest of the team to ensure efficient communication and efficiency in the design phases of our projects. 

About you

  • You should feel at home working on multiple projects, spending time asking questions and problem solving with the rest of the team before executing.
  • As you will be working remotely, it is important that you are self-driven and motivated.
  • Good command of English (both written and spoken)
  • Proactive, team-player with the ability to manage multiple tasks effectively.
  • Basic knowledge of color theory and ability to create palettes.  
  • Excellent attention to detail.
  • High degree of organization, individual initiative and personal responsibility.
  • We're not looking for a lot of product design experience, just a keen eye for aesthetics and compelling design.
  • Basic understanding of user experiences (UX) and digital tools.
  • Curiosity and great taste for technology – you are constantly learning new tools.
  • Positive attitude and good sense of humor. 

Proficient skills in digital tools such as:

  • Figma 
  • Adobe Illustrator / Adobe Photoshop
  • Google Suite
  • Keynote
  • PowerPoint, etc.

Our goal is that after ~2 years, you will have the tools and skill set for you to be ready to start your own startup, join a top Latin American startup in a high level role, or continue to help build Magma and support the next generation of startups in Latin America. 

We believe that working on the Magma team, in any role, is a great way to jumpstart your career in the startup world.
