Product Designer

| Santa Monica

POSITION SUMMARY

The Product Designer will be responsible for designing & working with UI kits, creating user flows and collaborating with product leaders & engineers. You’ll be responsible for the day-to-day implementation of wireframes, concept exploration, hi & low-fi interactive prototypes and delivering final assets. You’re a great fit for this role if you have an expertise in design & prototyping programs like Sketch & Principle, you should know the ins-and-outs of cross-platform design paradigms, and should have excellent communication skills.

You sweat the details over a beautiful design without sacrificing the best possible user experience. You know design draws people in — but it should get out of the way so they can glide thru experiences like butter. You love peppering the path from A to B with moments of surprise and delight.

At the end of the day, you want to design experiences that make people weak in the knees. Designs that make other designers jealous. Designs that win awards.

RESPONSIBILITIES & DUTIES

  • A love for creating the best user experience possible
  • Build comprehensive user flows and wireframes
  • Create iterative and interactive high & low fidelity prototypes
  • Design across various platforms (web, mobile, etc)
  • Conduct and contribute to research and testing
  • Work collaboratively with small and medium sized teams
  • Execute against a fast-paced, ever-adapting roadmap
  • Rapid iteration based on user testing, industry research, data and feedback
  • Present polished comps and deliver final assets

SKILLS & QUALIFICATIONS

  • Never satisfied, always looking for better design solutions
  • Expert in mobile design paradigms (iOS, Android, phone & tablet)
  • Master of Sketch, Invision, prototyping (Principle, etc) and Adobe CC
  • Technical understanding (HTML, CSS, javascript, etc.) and ability to effectively communicate with engineers and product managers
  • 2-4 years digital product design experience
  • Experience with end-to-end product design from concept to shipping
  • Keen eye for color, typography, hierarchy, space & flow

BONUS

  • Have experience working at a startup or other agile teams
  • Like working on side projects (design or otherwise)
  • You want to leave the world a better place
  • Down to grab a beer (or a root beer if that’s your thing)
