Full-time
As part of the Product team at StackAdapt, you will help shape the future of our products. 

As a Product Designer, you will fully own your design projects and take them from idea-to-launch alongside our product and development teams. Your designs are yours, and you live-and-breathe to see them succeed. 

You've delivered delightful, usable products before, and have a "get shit done" attitude that thrives in a fast-paced, creative, and demanding environment.
From optimizing a one-line message on a page to creating an entire customer experience from scratch, your design influence is all-encompassing.
