Senior Product Designer
Subscription businesses around the world rely on Recurly every day to secure critical billing information, invoice and communicate with their customers, and evaluate their reporting data. It’s crucial that our brand and product experience communicate confidence and credibility at every step.
As a Senior Product Designer at Recurly you’ll be part of a small but impactful team as you help us evolve the next generation of the product. In your role you’ll empathize with our customers’ needs, create scalable design systems, and deliver beautiful and intuitive interfaces. You’ll be called upon to work through design challenges large and small, from the microinteractions of customer onboarding to complex and thorny design problems (like making it easy for our customers in Chicago to apply the correct “amusement tax”).
But you won’t do it alone. You’ll work as a partner with product managers, engineers, and other designers putting Design Thinking to work to bring it all to life.
- Collaborate with teammates, product management, engineering, and business stakeholders to identify requirements and provide thoughtful, creative solutions
- Participate in and lead collaborative design activities (in person and remote) in an Agile environment
- Conduct generative and evaluative research to understand user needs and behaviors
- Translate findings into usable, effective, and accessible user experiences
- Communicate ideas verbally and visually through concept designs, flow diagrams, wireframes, mockups, and high-fidelity prototypes
- Utilize Recurly’s design system and contribute to its improvement
- Ensure that design intent is maintained through development
- Advocate for the value of human-centered design
- 5 years of hands-on experience designing for digital products
- Bachelor’s degree in Design or equivalent practical experience
- A strong portfolio with multiple projects that demonstrate your skills creating usable digital experiences
- Ability to use UI design and prototyping tools with confidence. We primarily work in (and love) Figma, but we’re always interested in discovering new capabilities
- Excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication, and analytical skills
You’ll Fit Right in if You...
- Have a positive attitude and understand that any design problem can be interesting if you make it
- Embrace constructive criticism as part of the design process and can clearly articulate your design decisions
- Are comfortable thinking and talking about business strategy and systems at scale—not one-off solutions
- Believe in craft and strong design fundamentals, including typography, color, and composition
- Aren’t afraid to fail and love to iterate quickly
- Pride yourself on empowering and supporting the success of your peers
- Know empathy is the most important design skill you possess
