Lead Product Designer

San Francisco
Product
Full-time
Looking to join a tech company solving real world problems for real people? We’re launching a new line of products that will transform the mortgage industry! Interesting right? These products need a consistent brand and user experience that serves both large enterprises and consumers making the biggest purchase of their life. That’s where you come in.

In this crucial position you’ll report to our Director of Product which means you will be tightly connected to strategic product decisions and you’ll own the design vision and approach to ensure our platform is simple yet powerful, and delightful to use. You’ll also manage and mentor our team of designers and figure out how we can take our design to the next level - one of our main advantages will be the simplicity of our solution. A small sample of the challenges you’ll get to grapple with:

    • How do we set a coherent design vision and scalable design system to ensure our team is building towards the same thing and the user experience across the platform is consistent?
    • Our platform sits at the intersection of many players in the mortgage space and is getting increasingly complex.
    • We are building an every day tool for large enterprises and are also guiding consumers through the biggest purchase of their life. How do we serve all of these needs and incorporate complexity while making the platform simpler so that we can plug in seamlessly to our customers’ existing workflows?We are revolutionizing a notoriously paper-driven industry, how can we intrigue people and draw them away from their existing processes?
An experienced (7+ yrs designing and shipping for web/mobile) and open minded designer and leader, you exude both creativity and business sense. You understand our users deeply and with that empathy you bring seamless solutions to life through simple and sophisticated design. You are strategic and are comfortable pushing forward your design vision as part of a small and nimble product team. Our customers use our product from 9-5; our ideal candidate will understand that design owes these folks a delightful, ergonomic experience, and will find ways to sprinkle joy within the utility. And of course you’re a startup person - not only do you set big bold strategic goals and get after them, you’re also excited about designing day to day and leading by example.

Snapdocs is an early-stage, rapidly growing company backed by investors like Sequoia, SV Angel, and YCombinator. We are tackling the massive mortgage market, developing modern software for an industry that still relies on fax machines and manila envelopes. We bring security, efficiency, and joy to a paper-based pillar of the US economy.

Snapdocs’ culture is one that strongly values diversity and drive. We want to work with people of different backgrounds and different paths in life, and we trust our team members to make smart decisions. This means we value independent work as well as collaboration. We provide a range of excellent benefits ranging from the standard stuff (matching 401(k)!, free lunches, 21 days PTO!) to the not so standard (10 year exercise window on your options (!!)) and our location in the heart of the Financial District in SF is super convenient.
