UMAI is a software provider that helps restaurants to save time and increase revenues by automating manual tasks, minimize last minute cancellations, upsell customers more effectively and provide more personalized service.

The team has extensive experience in building internet companies and has been part of building some of the largest e-commerce ventures in the Asia Pacific Region. Founded by the former MD of, the largest food delivery service in Singapore, and a member of the founding-team of Nova Founders Capital, one of the largest digital marketing agencies in South East Asia.

This is not a formal corporate role. We are looking for someone who has a “hustle” attitude, who is results driven, who is comfortable with ambiguity, which is a self-starter and has a sense of humor.


Your skills/attributes:

  • You are expert in product design, UX and UI. Proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. If you have knowledge of After Effects, XD, Sketch and InVision is great, but not essential.

  • Your portfolio is so inspiring that we'd consider you for a staff level position, but your interests lie more in helping others become amazing designers.

  • You have a genuine enthusiasm for digital, and pride in the quality of work.

  • You know how to set the bar high. You know what quality looks like and how to help product
    teams ship at that quality with minimal impact on velocity.

  • You teach the soft and hard skills. You help designers become the collaborative glue that inspires product management and engineering while also developing their core competencies at envisioning what could be.

  • You build excellent teams. You are able to bring in processes for you (and others) to effectively evaluate and hire designers and researchers who can take UMAI to new levels of excellence.

  • You increase the effectiveness of the entire team. You improve the entire design and product teams, not just your direct reports. As a leader and example-setter you should be more effective when you're not even in the room. Your processes will be celebrated, emulated and copied by teams throughout the organization.

Your Role:

  • You will lead your team in expanding mastery of the business goals of each design request and pushing back on stakeholders with innovative UX/UI proposals.

  • You will work closely with the Digital production team, designers and developers efficiently and to deadline.

  • You will manage and mentor a motivated team of designers.

What we offer:

  • A dynamic and highly motivated team with flat hierarchies

  • Great working atmosphere in an international environment

  • Challenging and diversified tasks with direct responsibility

  • Opportunity to learn and work with some of the best entrepreneurs in the world. We give you insights to all relevant aspects of founding a company and the opportunity to build up a meaningful international network.
