Join the team behind the big idea.

Noun Project is a highly collaborative place where the world's visual language is shared and created. We are used and loved by a huge community of designers, creatives, educators, Fortune 500 companies as well as great organizations like Wikipedia, The New York Times, and the United Nations. There’s a lot of great work to be done in simplifying and organizing visual communication, and to realize it, we’re looking for talented people to join our crew.

Our mission is to create, share and celebrate the world’s visual language. Humans have been using symbols to communicate for over 17,000 years because symbols have the power to transcend cultural and language boundaries - they are the one language everyone can understand. For the first time ever, this language is being combined with technology to create a social language that unites the world.
