Senior Product Designer

Full Time- Remote
Very’s design team is growing, and we want you to be a part of it 🤙. We are looking for a self-motivated Product Designer who is excited to work on a wide variety of design problems and has an appreciation for human-centered design.
Our design team believes the best way to bring immediate value to products and users is via a strong relationship between design & technology. We believe the best-designed products have a shelf life longer than one major release, and that they collect data to inform future iterations. We are looking for a designer who understands the complexities of design systems, has an appreciation for iterative design, and has a strategic eye for all things UX.
Upon joining the Very design team you will find yourself doing the following on any given day:
🖍 Product concept ideation
🗺 User-flow mapping
💄 Hi-Fi Design Systems
🎬 Interaction & motion design�
- Interactive Prototyping
If you have experience designing across the web, and mobile platforms, you may be who we are looking for! We believe designers should be close to the project’s codebase, so bonus points if you have a passion for writing HTML & CSS, and EVEN MORE bonus points if you know React 🙌. We believe in leveling up every day, and that the best designers are the ones who see the big picture and seize the opportunity for improvement.
What You’ll Be Working On
Very is first and foremost a software consultancy – we design and build digital products for clients that need specific software solutions executed on time with expertise. We are currently expanding our reach into the IoT product space, and are rapidly delivering new products that have both hardware and software components developed in tandem, and all in house. We’ve done everything from automated self-pour beer taps, to data acquisition & alerting for industrial power systems, to fish tanks you can control the colors of lights through an app.

- Collaborate with engineers to implement design
- Contribute to pattern libraries, style guides, and other guideline documentation
- Handle the design of our home on the web, verypossible.com, and work with our engineers to implement your design

- Proficiency in wire-framing, design, and prototyping tools (we currently use Sketch, InVision Studio, FramerX, etc.)
