The Company

Metropolis is an artificial intelligence company for the real world. Metropolis' computer vision platform enables people to transact in the physical world with even greater ease than we experience online. Today, we are reimagining parking. Because it's important, it's everywhere, and impacts everyone – enabling millions of consumers to just "drive in and drive out" – that's it. Tomorrow, we will power "checkout-free" experiences anywhere you go.


The Role 

Metropolis is seeking a UX & Product Design Lead to develop and execute an overall experience design strategy aligned with company goals, target audiences, and the product and engineering roadmap. In this role you will play a key role in re-inventing the parking experience for both parking customers and real-estate partners by continuously improving the digital and physical user experience across the Metropolis ecosystem.

Bring a user-centered design perspective to discussions around product vision, roadmap, and requirements with product and technical leadership
  • User Research: Oversee usability and concept testing of prototypes in laboratory and real-life settings. Conduct user research activities, including interviews, usability testing, and surveys, to gain deep insights into user behaviors, needs, and pain points. Use these insights to inform design decisions and improve the user experience
  • User Experience Design: Develop user journeys that address customer and business needs and express them in the form of design blueprints and frameworks for user journeys. Create wireframes, prototypes, and user flows to communicate design ideas and gather feedback.   
  • Product Design: Lead the product and feature design process from concept to execution to testing, ensuring the delivery of intuitive, user-friendly, and effective designs. Establish design standards and ensure alignment. Proactively source analytics and customer feedback to derive relevant design and usability insights.
