Why is this role important for Invisible Technologies?

Invisible occupies a fresh, newly carved out position in a marketplace dominated by no frills, horsepower first companies and products. We want our products and associated assets and collateral to be approachable and friendly as well as powerful. To achieve this, the lead product designer role must frequently interact with our product, operations, customer success, and engineering teams, and be hungry to get in front of our end users to produce tactical and strategic impact. Because our products also represent our most powerful marketing, sales, and operations tools, the lead product designer will also need the ability to organize and lead meetings with stakeholders outside of a traditional product design space. Product design must also guide the development of marketing and sales assets and collateral. This aspect of the lead product design role is special to Invisible’s stage of development. We need a lead product designer who is comfortable interacting and collaborating with marketing and sales to grow the brand. Meeting the design needs of a dynamic startup while holding product design as the north star represents the basic description of the lead product design role at Invisible. Building and influencing the strategic direction of a design organization covering all design needs across the company, product and non-product related, represents the greater opportunity available for the right candidate.
