Senior Product Designer

Arlington, VA
Design
Full-time
We love making things at Basket, so our days are spent with our heads together, pondering the right things to make and how they should work. We huddle with engineers, product managers, and users, working closely together on projects from start to finish, and turn ideas into beautiful, simple, and lovable products. We have white-boarding jam sessions, prototype thoughtful stories, and create pixel-perfect designs that bring it all together. We design separately and together, teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests. We know we're never completely done. We ship, iterate, and learn from our users.

YOUR STRENGTHS

    • You have a deep understanding of design processes and methods developed through experience and you balance fidelity with agility based on the task at hand.
    • Your analytical thinking is rigorous and communication is precise, and it shows instantly.
    • You're interested in exploring and experimenting without attachment.
    • You can make decisions and rally various types of people around them.
    • You can spend long stretches with your sleeves rolled up in execution mode, and your Sketch files show your ability to organize your designs precisely and in a way that’s optimized for communicating the right things with the engineering team.  
    • You have a knack for understanding people and how they like to do things, and can combine that with testing and data to make sound design decisions.
    • You know when to involve others and escalate issues.
    • Your portfolio shows your range of skills: UX, research, visual design, UI, storytelling, persona creation, and design process.
    • Being technically fluent is very helpful (but not required) — especially if you're able to leverage that expertise to build prototypes that convey your creative vision.
    • You like being engaged at all steps of the project from brainstorming to go live.
    • You are capable of turning big data problems into simple usable designs
