Patreon is the best place for creators to build memberships by providing exclusive access to their work and a deeper connection with their communities. We’re building a content and community platform where creators can engage directly with their fans and monetize their creativity, while maintaining full ownership over the work they make and the communities they create.

We’re continuing to invest heavily in building the most talented team in the Creator Economy and are looking for a Staff Product Designer for our Content and Community team to support our mission.
