Job Description:

Come be a part of a team of designers passionate about creating the very best product for this company's billion users. As a Product Designer, you will be involved in every aspect of the product development process, from brainstorming the next great product innovation to tweaking pixels right before launch. You will be expected to utilize your full range of product design, interaction design, and visual design skills, and you will own the experience for a wide area of the company product. 

We are looking for product designers who are considered senior on the team. You contribute as a leader in some capacity (whether on your direct team or throughout design.) You may be a Design Lead for your product area, with explicit accountabilities for the design quality of a team. At this point, you may also consider switching over to the management track, which runs parallel to the Individual Contributor Product Designer track. We are hiring product designers across a number of areas, including business solutions such as advertising for emerging markets and publisher solutions, as well as for our core app team, focused on friendsharing. 

As a Product Designer you will own an entire product space or work on projects that encompass multiple features and are broad/ambiguous in scope. Given a high-level problem, you are able to deliver concrete end-to-end solutions that help define a product vision. You demonstrate solid leadership skills. You have strong partnerships with product managers and engineers, likely providing product direction and exerting significant influence in defining goals for your product area. Your skill level across product thinking, interaction design, and execution & craft is generally solid across the board, with one or more areas being areas of particular strength. You have a good grasp of the medium you are designing for, and you make effective use of prototyping tools. You may be designing new patterns or introducing new standards in your work that later become adopted by others. You succinctly and effectively communicate your work and may be called upon to represent your product team to executive leadership or in design forums. You are actively mentoring junior designers or interns, or participating in design-team-wide initiatives (examples include: interviewing, recruiting, mentoring workshops, design standards, improving design tools, etc.) 

Responsibilities:

  • Take broad, conceptual ideas, and turn them into something useful and valuable for our billion+ users

  • Design flows and experiences that are incredibly simple and elegant

  • Contribute to high-level strategic decisions with the rest of the product and executive teams

  • Give and solicit feedback from other designers in order to continually raise our bar for quality

  • Partner with PMs, engineers, researchers, and content strategists to oversee the user experience of a product from conception until launch (and then some)

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Experience in building and shipping applications or software

  • Experience with Application Design, Visual Design, and Interaction Design

  • Demonstrated experience with end-to-end (hybrid UX and UI) product design

  • Must have a portfolio featuring examples of interaction design work
