Product Designer

Job description

Capacity is building an artificial intelligence platform to transform the modern workforce. Our AI platform puts the power of Artificial Intelligence to work for businesses. It allows team members to access what they need to know when they need to know it - via help desk automation, workflows and a robust knowledge base.

Capacity engineers enjoy the opportunity and benefits of working at an early-stage artificial intelligence startup, but in an environment much more akin to a later stage company given the experience of the founding team. The culture at Capacity encourages innovation, independent problem solving, and collaboration as we continue to mature our product in the ever-changing work of AI.

Capacity is funded by the EQUITY.com incubator. As part of our dedication to the St. Louis community, Capacity is partnered with Create a Loop, a nonprofit focused on teaching kids computer science.
