Coffee Meets Bagel is looking for a passionate, talented Product Designer to help design the future of dating. This person will bring a unique perspective on the biggest customer pain points within the world of dating and will be responsible for executing on all stages of the design process for both iOS and Android platforms: product thinking, interaction flows, visual design, user testing, prototyping, and spec and asset production. Designers at CMB solve complex problems by identifying key issues and collaborating with cross-functional teams (product, marketing, engineering) to develop solutions that are achievable in a fast-paced start-up environment.

Responsibilities

    • Design simple, easy-to-use dating experiences that delight our users
    • Partner with PMs, engineers, and copywriters across the company to oversee user experience for products and features from conception to launch
    • Develop deep empathy for our customers and use research to inform design solutions
    • Contribute to high-level strategic decisions with the product team
    • Work cross-functionally with product managers, designers, marketers, and engineers to provide key user insights from research that will help define the product roadmap and drive the creation of engaging, high-quality, global user experiences
    • Lead relevant and thoughtful conversations within cross-functional teams to promote design-thinking and customer-centric culture
    • Own the design process from end to end: identify important people problems, take designs from early concepts to pixel-perfect final production, and incorporate user research, prototypes, and quantitative data to inform decision making along the way
    • Produce lo-fi and hi-fi mobile designs while advocating for, iterating upon, and delivering high-impact design solutions in line with business goals

Required Qualifications

    • 2+ years mobile design experience

    • Knowledge of Figma, Sketch or similar design and prototyping tools

    • Independent problem solver that requires very little guidance: can identify important people problems, take design projects from early concept to final production, and thrives in a fast-paced environment
    • Excellent organization and presentation skills to structure design proposals and documentation in a way that can be easily understood and modified by others
    • Systems-thinker with the ability to go beyond the pixels and design with genuine human interactions in the offline world in mind (e.g. real people going on real dates)
    • An advocate for high-impact design culture: relishes giving and receiving feedback, understands the art of constructive, ego-less design critique, and seeks feedback from customers and coworkers in order to constantly raise the quality bar
    • Have shipped product

Preferred Qualifications

    • 4+ years design experience, with at least 2+ years designing for mobile devices
    • Bachelor's degree in design, human factors, fine art, or related field
    • Experience working with a design system; its curation, maintenance, and dissemination
