Our exciting series A client in NYC is building a new kind of professional social network and looking to bring a Senior Product Designer on to join their growing team. Whereas traditional professional networks focus on labelling you with just a job title, our client enables people to share what they actually do in a timeline. We are seeking a Lead Product Designer to join their team as a founding design team member. If qualified, apply today!

You will:

  • Lead design projects intended for unique audience use cases and markets around the world.

  • Work with small multi-disciplinary teams made up of representatives from engineering, product, product insights, and marketing, among others.

  • Take into account existing insights, technical constraints, business needs, and specific market demands to produce data-informed solutions.

  • Be autonomous. Take full ownership of your work and full responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way, from whiteboard sketching to high-fidelity final treatments.

  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes, understanding when deeper exploration is warranted and when it is best to change paths and try another approach.

You have:

  • 5+ years of experience in a similar role at consumer-focused product companies; experience designing for multiple platforms is a huge plus.

  • Incredible designer with amazing ux and ui design chops. You’ve shipped many consumer products/features over the years and are equally skilled at interaction and visual design; bonus skills include motion design and prototyping skills.

  • An aptitude for translating and documenting design ideas into visuals that can be shared with all parts of the business.

  • A strong understanding of usability and user experience principles.

  • Ability to take calculated risks: you’re comfortable with designing to learn, unafraid of making mistakes (because they are a part of learning), and can temper your analytical skills with intuition and creative ambition.
