About the opportunity
Docket is a B2B SaaS startup in Indianapolis, Indiana that is changing how the world meets by making it easy to have awesome meetings. We’re building a meeting-focused software platform for collaborative agenda creation, decision documentation, and action item tracking with the goal of bringing greater clarity, transparency, and alignment to an organization’s meetings resulting in greater productivity and happier people.
We take pride in building consistent, user-friendly, streamlined, and delightful experiences for our customers. We are currently looking for an experienced designer across a broad range of skill-sets; product design, communication design, web design, and illustration. At Docket, you’ll have the opportunity to help shape and drive the vision of the product.
What You’ll Do
Reporting directly to the VP of Product, you will help envision how people interact with, and experience our website and product, and then translate that vision into the future designs for marketing material and the Docket user interface. You will transform complex processes into intuitive and easy-to-use designs (both Web and Mobile) that are understandable by both inexperienced and sophisticated users. You will collaborate closely with members of the product and engineering teams, in addition to marketing and executive leadership throughout the design process—from crafting user flows and wireframes, building user interface mockups and prototypes, facilitating design discussions, and giving feedback in planning and product channels by identifying new opportunities. At each stage, you will ensure consistency across product, website, and marketing materials as well as anticipate what our users need, advocate for them, and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them.
You will thrive in this position if, as a designer, you are self-directed but balance this well in a team-oriented approach. You understand that done is preferable to perfect, but still strive to produce the best work possible in everything you do. You appreciate feedback, seek it often, and don’t take criticism personally. You own your work, making sure it meets the needs of the intended audience and that it’s done on time. You embrace ambiguity, are solution oriented, and thrive in a constantly changing environment while maintaining a great attitude. You are passionate about what you do and can roll up your sleeves to get things done.
