About the team

The Core Product Experience is the essence of Miro. It's the most used and mission-critical part of the product for a user and a critical ingredient for the success of our business. The Core Product stream is responsible for all the canvas UI and interactions, simple and complex graphical objects and their behavior, content creation and collaboration experience on the board. Its mission is to reinforce human intelligence and enable teams to create Next Big Things by providing tools for visual thinking and communication that are intuitive and easy for everyone.

Each role at Miro is based at one of our physical hubs and we look for talent that want to be part of these local, collaborative communities. Mironeers work in a hybrid model, with a 3 days a week in office culture as our baseline.
