Who we are

We are Welcome. We help travelers by taking away the hassle of moving around the destination they arrived at and providing the best private transfers along with cool personal sightseeing tours. We find the best drivers, with the best cars, provide top-notch customer support, and are moving towards making the digital side of our product as effortless and enjoyable as possible.

A person who:

  • Is comfortable with problems and solutions not being well defined
  • Can find the right people to get answers from
  • Isn't afraid of analyzing a statistical report or two
  • Cares about making small features good as much as big ones
  • Works well switching between tasks and feels comfortable in a fast-paced environment
  • Is proficient in designing for different devices and platforms
  • Values data over personal opinion
  • Has a personal opinion
  • Is ok with making a design less cool and simpler to implement if current conditions demand it
  • Can make something super cool and visually pleasing when it makes sense
  • Loves when their design gets implemented correctly and makes everything to help developers do it
  • Cares about what is written on buttons
  • Doesn't mind strong Greek and Russian accent

What you'll be doing

On a high level:

  • Explaining to users what the product is and how it works
  • Making the user experience effortless
  • Contributing to the creation of our distinct visual language
  • Helping to bring our developing design system to life
  • Helping the company to make more money

On a practical level:

  • Identifying and formulating user problems with product managers and stakeholders
  • Researching to find possible solutions
  • Creating high-fidelity mockups/prototypes and iterating on them with product managers and stakeholders
  • Explaining to developers how the end result is supposed to work
  • Controlling the quality of implementation
  • Following up on the results

  • Our products are not so bad or old that you hate them, but not so good yet that you have nothing to contribute
  • The team has a perfect size: we're small enough to have minimum bureaucracy and corporate nonsense, but big enough to enable every person to do what they are best at and make a difference doing so
  • Our development team is really powerful, motivated, and can do virtually anything
  • The production cycle is fairly short: you start seeing your work in production really quick
  • We've been growing at a good pace for the last 4 years and it won't end anytime soon
