Product Designer

Remote /
Engineering /
Fulltime
We are building a product team to supercharge the age of APIs. Our team will be cross-functional and durable, comprised of a product manager, a product designer and several engineers. We'll empower our product team to solve customer and business problems in ways that our users and customers love, yet work for our business. The product team will collaborate closely to discover effective solutions, and then work together to deliver those solutions to market. Shipping is necessary, but not sufficient. Those solutions will need to be:

Valuable — our customers choose to buy it or use it
Viable — the solution works within the many constraints of the business
Usable — the user can figure out how to use
Feasible — our engineers have the skills and technology to implement it

We look for team members that are not afraid of signing up for outcomes, even when this means having to work through others to achieve the necessary results.

Responsibilities

    • Own all user touch points and interactions over time
    • Advocate user experience as being as important to customer value as it is the underlying functionality
    • Design interactions and visuals designs at different levels of fidelity, depending on the context
    • Perform frequent tests with real users, to validate if a solution is not only usable but also valuable, and collect new insights

Necessary Qualifications

    • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent practical experience.
    • 5 years working on technology-powered products as a product designer.
    • Demonstrated understanding of usability patterns and ability to work with other existing patterns to create consistent, reusable experiences.
    • Demonstrated ability to use tools like Sketch, Figma and Abstract and ability to jump into new technologies as needed.
    • Demonstrated ability to design solutions to hard problems with many constraints and ability to use prototypes as the primary canvas for communicating ideas.
    • Proven ability to engage with product managers, engineers and company leaders in a constructive and collaborative relationship.
