As a Lead Product Designer, you will own the design for one of our larger accounts, driving the product direction, developing a shared vision for the team, and executing with the help of other designers. 

Responsibilities:

  • Lead the product design process on one of our larger accounts, guiding the team, setting the vision, and being the creative point of contact with the client.
  • Develop the visual language, infusing the brand voice into the product experience and interface.
  • Perform research to inform your design decisions and product direction, sometimes working with research teams to help find insights.
  • Work in systems, maintaining and growing modular atomic libraries to benefit your team, the engineers, and the client.
  • Collaborate with the engineering team, working to define a shared language and avoid “throwing things over the fence.”

  • Advocate for design, speaking to the value of user research, design systems, and design as a strategic differentiator.
  • Give honest design feedback to the designers you work with and act as a mentor to help them grow.

Qualifications 

  • You’ve been working on digital products for 7+ years.
  • A portfolio that shows your mastery of design— typography, composition, and color, as well as your product design process.
  • You’ve shipped and launched several products either at an agency or as part of a product company.
  • You’re an excellent communicator, confident in presenting your solutions and process internally and to clients.
  • You have had the chance to lead or mentor other designers in the past.
  • Experience running user interviews and usability tests.
  • Experience with (and an affinity for) Figma.
  • You know what’s possible to build on the web and what might be more difficult (and sometimes build some things yourself).
  • You care about designing accessible experiences for all users (and creating tools that help)

Even if you don’t hit 100% of these qualifications, we still encourage you to apply. We can work with you to help build some of these skills over time.
