UI Designer | Sound Team (d/f/m)

Abelton team


We are looking for a designer to help us make the next generation of interfaces for Ableton's Sound products; someone with a point of view and vision who understands that design is about how something works, and that things work better when they look and feel great. We want to work with people who understand (or are willing to learn) how to design interfaces for instruments, effects, and workflows that musicians use to make music.
**Your role **
  • You will design interfaces for Max for Live instruments and effects for Ableton Packs, in collaboration with sound content specialists and third party developers
  • You will work with product owners, users and other stakeholders to understand how musicians use our products in order to translate that information into problems to solve
  • You will ideate, sketch, mock up and prototype concepts together with your team
  • As part of the product team you’ll work with other product designers to deliver modern and visually coherent updates to Ableton’s instruments and effects
  • You’ll work with developers to prototype and implement interfaces. Together you’ll determine how our interface needs should influence technical decisions and vice versa


  • A proven ability to deliver beautiful, usable interfaces based on a user-centered design process
  • Experience working collaboratively with teams of developers and other designers delivering UIs for desktop, mobile or web applications
  • The skills to present and explain design decisions to non-designers
  • The ability to draw on wider discussion from the design and music community to improve the interfaces of our products and our practice of design
  • Fluency in spoken and written English
  • Ability to relocate to Germany
