Responsibilities

 

As our lead Designer you will be responsible for making our product dead awesome. You will own the user experience of our products. We’re relying on you to translate user needs and business objectives into designs that help our customers get the job done in the most rewarding experience possible.
 

Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.
 

Balance short-term product design needs with vision into the future. Spend time exploring ideas on how we can improve the product over the long term.
Work effectively with cross-functional teams, partnering with product management and engineering to conceptualize, build, and ship highly usable product that customers love to use.
 

Use data to drive your design decisions. You should be just as comfortable extracting answers from our analytics as you are conducting a usability study of a new feature.
 

Practice extreme ownership. As a senior member of the design team, we’re counting on you to establish realistic timelines and complete projects on time.
Ensure consistency across all of our products & integrations by adhering to our style guide and making updates when necessary. Work with front-end developers to eliminate inconsistencies. HTML and CSS skills are a great plus.

Great compensation package.

We allow you to choose your design hardware.

And it will only get better - you'll help us to shape and build a brand new Design Studio!
