You’ll work with a passionate group of designers, product managers, and front-end engineers to see your features through from planning to implementation. You’ll get to formulate hypotheses, work in rapid iterations to test your assumptions, and quickly see the impact of your work. You’ll use your full range of skills from product design, interaction design, and visual design to design the future of work.

This is a remote role, candidates based anywhere in Pacific and Mountain timezones are welcome to apply!

Responsibilities

  • Work in close collaboration with other researchers, designers, writers, product managers and UI engineers to design products that have low friction to adoption and are delightful to use

  • Develop low and high fidelity mockups and prototypes to effectively articulate your design decisions.

  • Produce polished visual design specs that are clear and directed

  • Iterate through design feedback from internal stakeholders and customers

  • Gauge the usability of new and existing features and make constructive suggestions for change.

  • Own your features. You can think through edge-cases, refine specs, find reasonable design solutions, and work with engineers to build them.

  • Leverage analytics tools to measure success, present opportunities, and support decision-making

  • Write clear and concise copy for your projects

  • Be a constant user advocate, in every aspect of your work.

Requirements

What we are looking for:

  • Minimum 5 years of UX design experience, preferably in designing complex products. A Bachelor’s/ Master’s degree in Design is an added advantage.

  • A strong portfolio of your past work that details your challenges, ideas, and impact. We are specifically looking for projects that went into production where you’ve distilled a complex problem into a simple interface. What were your considerations/constraints? What was the impact of your work? As this is a Senior designer role, your projects should show that you’re capable of leading designs on full features, and demonstrate that you are capable of understanding systems.

  • Experience using tools such as Figma. Knowledge of basic HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript is a bonus, but not required. Ability to prototype simple animations of your design in Codepen is also a good to have.

  • A solid grasp of user-centered design and testing methodologies. Ability to define research questions and work with our User Researcher on best methods to answer them.

  • Ability to effectively present and justify design decisions to stakeholders. All justifications should be grounded in design/psych theories/ research/ analytics.

  • Awareness of current and upcoming design patterns and the ability to critique them.

  • Ability to function independently, be self-directed and to thrive in ambiguity. 

  • Team player, willing to help and share knowledge with team members, open to feedback and constructive criticism.

  • Experience mentoring junior designers and contributing in developing the design practice within an organization. We are still a young team and looking for people whose past experiences can help us grow.
