As a mobile-focused product designer on our client's team in San Francisco, you’ll take on tough challenges that cuts across various experiences, and you’ll help unlock world-changing new experiences. You’ll work among design-oriented engineers, product managers and some of the best designers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid (technology/operations) environment.
The role demands great execution, bold innovation, obsession with quality, fearlessness and optimism to be inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with creativity while keeping the user in mind and ambition to take projects to the finish line.
Our client might be a good match if...
You’re a generalist with a sweet spot, or a specialist looking to broaden your skills
You focus on UI, UX, or you’re a mythical unicorn. We’re interested in talented designers first, titles a distant second.
You believe in craftsmanship and create elegant and compelling designs, over and over.
Your portfolio has some premier work. You're a walking encyclopedia of microinteractions in use (on mobile, web, desktop, etc), and have nuanced views on how to make many of them even better.
You’ve shipped product.
You’ve weathered release cycles and know what details matter at each stage, how to motivate engineers to get the fit and finish right, how to translate insights from user studies into meaningful action, and what’s most likely to go afoul at each stage. You can share several shining examples of real work you've shipped, and what you learned along the way.
You substantially contribute to defining the 'what' as well as the 'how'.
You're a product manager's secret weapon. You thrive best when helping to define the requirements, not just translating them into designs. You facilitate and draw the best design ideas from teammates.
You can think and talk about the bottom line.
Analytics don’t scare you, and you know which features can act as force multipliers on your company’s business model.
Prototyping is a key part of your toolset.
You’ve prototyped on multiple platforms. You’ve made last-minute tweaks between user studies. You know how to be all kinds of quick and dirty, but dream of better prototyping tools.
Cross-platform is your style.
Hopefully you’ve shipped something across several platforms. You know what translates from desktop and what doesn’t, or why you’d opt for one solution for iOS and another on Android.
