Judo is growing quickly, and we're searching for a tech-savvy Product Specialist to help us deliver a world-class customer learning experience.

About Judo:

Judo is a server-driven UI platform for iOS and Android apps that frees up countless hours for product, marketing and engineering teams. Using our Mac app, teams can build user interfaces visually in a fraction of the time it would take otherwise, and can publish them instantly without submitting to the App/Play store.

Judo’s iOS and Android SDKs are installed in close to 100 different apps reaching millions of users. Some of our customers include DraftKings, Cabela’s and the New England Patriots. Judo has established a leadership position in the emerging world of server-driven UI.

Our name derives from the martial art, a key principle of which is “maximum efficiency with minimal effort”. This concept is captured in our mission to enable product teams to build faster and iterate more frequently.

We’re backed by the same group that funded Shippabo, Airtable, LaunchKit and more (TenOneTen and Freestyle VC), a top U.S. accelerator as well as several prominent angel investors. We’ve built a solid reputation with several major sports franchises as clients, and are now charting new territory as we explore the multitude of other industries who could benefit from incorporating Judo into their native app workflows.

About our team:

We’re a group of humans who believe that we’re our most creative and most innovative when we have the flexibility to determine where and when we work. We’re 100% remote and intend to stay that way. Currently we have team members based in Canada, Brazil, Scotland and Poland. We’re intentional about remote culture, and believe that meaningful connections and effective collaboration with teammates aren’t only possible in a remote environment - but that they’re crucial for organizational success.

Things move quickly around here. Judo is a fast-paced, self-directed, energetic environment where everyone is bringing a fiery passion to work every single day. We value hustle, balance, innovation, customer obsession, design-centricity and continuous learning. We’re entrepreneurial in spirit, creative in our thinking, and experimental in our approach.
