Temboo is home to environmentalists, technologists, designers, and everyone in between. We believe in empowering all people to use emerging technology to make their own world a better place.

Our no-code platform for environmental engagement helps communities advocate for policy changes, nonprofits assess environmental conditions, cities maintain green infrastructure, and citizens become more involved.

We’re building software that helps people measure, share, and grow their sustainability efforts—and we want you to help! Here’s some things we’re excited about:

  • Our customers are building a wide range of environmental monitoring applications, from tracking soil moisture in city tree beds to assessing pH levels in octopus farms!
  • As reported by the New York Times, our platform helps people combine science, sensors, and community organizing to make where they live, work, and play greener. Regardless of background or experience, we provide all the tools needed to measure, engage, inform, and advocate to build more engaged communities, neighborhoods, and environments.
  • We partner with groups like the Waterfront Alliance, The Grid, and SWIM to lend our support for smarter, more resilient waterfronts and urban communities.
  • Our software comes pre-shipped in hardware development platforms for millions of devices from companies like Texas Instruments, Samsung, and Arduino.
  • Our software integrates with over 100 internal and external APIs and cloud services, and we work closely with API providers such as Amazon and Microsoft to make their APIs more accessible.
  • Temboo has been adopted as a teaching tool by over 150 universities worldwide, in courses ranging from traditional CS and engineering, to digital art and urban data mining.

Visual design and user experience are at the heart of Temboo. We’re taking on big challenges to deliver technology that powers the connected world, and visual design plays a key role in making sure that our product is at once approachable, engaging, and powerful. Visual designers at Temboo are responsible for continually applying their inventiveness to communicate our novel technology platform to an increasingly diverse audience of customers, partners, and press.

As Temboo's visual designer, you’ll work across all areas of the product and company to ensure that creative visual design is front and center as we continue to innovate at the intersection of hardware and software. You'll work on things like:

  • Designing product graphics like this one.
  • Collaborating on web application visuals, including form elements, buttons, icons, data visualizations, and more (as seen in this video).
  • Communicating how Temboo can help people around the world, like this.
  • Styling our product documentation and screencasts.

We want a look that is human, curious, and approachable. For visual inspiration think Ikea assembly instructions, Vitruvian Man, Michelin Green Guides, and NASA's Visions of the Future space tourism posters.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Guiding Temboo’s visual identity and making sure that all touch points are in visual and interactive harmony
  • Leading the visual design and creative direction for Temboo’s platform, and for communications with customers, partners, and press
  • Applying creative design thinking as you work across the full design lifecycle, from mockups and prototypes to pixel-perfect finished products
  • Collaborating with colleagues from different teams to design everything from icons and landing pages to interactive product features
  • Effectively communicating your designs across teams
  • Learning from data to continuously improve your designs
  • Contributing to the culture of a small, fun, eclectic team
