Job Description:

Aquent's technology client is seeking a Senior Product Designer for the Trust & Safety team.   This is a perm/direct hire opportunity in San Francisco.  

On their Trust & Safety team, they design highly visible products to make riders, drivers, and cities even safer.  Their Driving Safety products automatically detect dangerous driving situations and help reinforce safe driving habits. Their Personal Safety products help drivers and riders feel more supported while on the road — everything from sharing trip status to seamlessly connecting with emergency services. They take a global mindset to solve problems everywhere from Brazil to Bangkok.

You’ll collaborate with design-oriented engineers, product managers and some of the world’s best designers and researchers, as well as psychologists, criminologists, and data scientists to fast-forward the future. Working on Trust & Safety at Uber offers the right designers an amazing opportunity for learning and growth.

 

You 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.

Native apps experience and strong mobile background

You believe in craftsmanship and create elegant and compelling designs, over and over.

Your portfolio has some best-in-class work. You're a walking encyclopedia of microinteractions in use (on mobile, web, tablets 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.

 

Perks

Meals and snacks 
The rare opportunity to change the way the world moves. We're not just another social web app, we're moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.

Benefits
