So it’s not just our process: the whole premise of our product is to be human-centric. We’re looking for an experienced Product Designer to take a human-centric approach in furthering our product, inspiring our team and making our vision come true.
- Work closely with PM and Engineering to:
- Be the voice of design and the end user in all discussions
- Understand market requirements and customer needs
- Define, scope, structure and sequence projects
- Ensure a high quality implementation and resulting user experience.
- Own the end-to-end design features/product verticals over long periods of time, including hands-on execution of flows, prototypes and mocks from the lowest to the highest levels of fidelity.
- Build confidence in ideas by talking directly to customers to understand their needs, observe their workflows and evaluate possible solutions.
- Lead design thinking processes and facilitating out-of-the-box thinking through brainstorms, workshops and sprints.
- Help shape our process and evolve our design culture to ensure we’re always shipping great work.
The ideal candidate for this position:
- Has 5+ years experience designing software, a good chunk of that on the web
- Approaches design with a collaborative, inclusive mindset
- Turns feedback into a learning experience, applying it wisely
- Excels at execution, but is pragmatic about scope and timelines
Also, you don’t have to be funny, but it doesn’t hurt if you can crack a joke. 🙂
- Excellent skills across interaction design, visual design, information architecture and prototyping. We don’t expect you to excel at all of those, but we’re looking a well-rounded candidate.
- Knowing how to sell your work. You can speak the language of product managers and engineers, and know how to balance business needs and design goals.
- The ability to structure your own time and prioritize accordingly.
- Experience working in a fast-paced environment, highly responsive to customer needs. We’re working on meaty design problems and solving them thoughtfully, but we’re moving quickly.
