We are looking for a passionate, talented Product Design Manager to lead our user experience initiatives across our digital products.

Of course, we have the normal perks for a company in Santa Monica: flexible work hours, team events and outings, writable walls, collaboration spaces, casual dress, monthly catered lunches, ample parking - but we know that is not what you really care about.
