Importance of the role (a.k.a. this is why we need you)
At Dreem, we put our users first.

Job description 
As a Product designer, you will work hand in hand with the product manager and the design team to deliver engaging user experiences. Your job will be to help create and shape software products that will improve people’s lives. On a typical day, you’ll take a known and identified product problem and draw potential solutions, from user flow to draft designs. Along with the product manager and the rest of the team, you’ll then choose the best solution and refine the flows and designs in order to make sure the developers have all they need to work on. On some occasions, your expert eye can also be used to design or review documents (company deck, brochure) and web pages. At given times, when a new product idea is emerging, you will be in charge of leading the user research and extracting insightful user personas to facilitate an accurate targeting of our core users. As a product designer you share the responsibility of an engaging and frictionless user experience with the product manager. You are also responsible for the general visual coherence of the products.
