Today, even though 87% of shoppers research products online, around 92% of purchases are still done at brick-and-mortar stores. To help marketers and retailers understand trends and popularity of products near their stores and how consumers shop for them, we created Shopping Insights.
Shopping Insights allows retail and marketing executives to explore which products are popular, how they trend over time, compare regional preference and see how people are using mobile and desktop devices to shop. Our mission is to help our advertising customers make more informed decisions about their marketing through data and insights.
We are a team in fairly early stages, looking to build our UX and UI design capacity, in order to redesign the product. If you are an designer passionate about data driven storytelling, visualization, consumer behaviour and trends, we would love to hear from you.
We’re looking for an exceptional Visual/UI Designer designer to work with the Shopping Insights team in San Francisco. The ideal candidate has a strong portfolio of work samples showcasing Visual/UI prowess.
Visual Designers weave iconography, typography, color, space and texture together to help our users successfully navigate our products. We believe that all of our products should be beautiful and accessible. As a Visual Designer, you’ll delight users with designs that inspire, engage and excite them. You’ll rely on user-centered design principles to produce high-quality visuals—from concept to execution—across many platforms.
