Tempo is looking for a senior UI/UX designer to join our Product Team! This role will further help us reinvent the user experience of manufacturing - to create an experience that is transparent, empowering, and delightful.

Tempo is the world's fastest electronics manufacturer - with a design upload to delivery in as fast as 3 days - using software-driven automation to deliver complex designs with unprecedented speed, quality, and transparency.
