Product Designer

| Santa Monica
The Black Tux is reinventing the formalwear rental industry so guys can show up at their best on the days that matter most. The company designs and manufactures modern rental suits and tuxedos that actually fit—made of 100% wool, ordered online or in one of our showrooms, and delivered for free. Using a combination of machine learning, tailor-trained fit specialists, and industry-leading customer service, The Black Tux guarantees a perfect fit every time.
To deliver on the company vision, our design team supports the entire customer journey. We are responsible for the design, concept, and production of all brand experiences and customer touch points. We are charged with ensuring that every articulation of the brand and product is up to our standards, governing the integrity, consistency, and quality of the experience.
We are customer centric, experience focused, and impact oriented. We are a team of designers, strategists, writers, and researchers. Some of us can draw; some of us can write; some us can code; and together we collaborate with an understanding that if we provide value to the customer, we will produce value for the business.

What You'll Do

  • While product designers at The Black Tux are thoughtful generalists, for this role we are looking for someone whose core strength is in UI and visual design
  • Design interfaces and interactions for new and existing features, applying current design patterns and creating new ones when necessary
  • Work with the team to build a design system and establish processes and best practices
  • Create cross-platform flows that take into account the experience on all devices in a variety of contexts and channels
  • Collaborate with marketing, creative, and product designers to ensure a consistent and cohesive brand expression
  • Collaborate with product managers, developers, analysts, marketers, and other designers on implementation
  • Identify opportunities for improvement in our products and process and take the initiative to provide solutions

Who You Are

  • Experience designing and shipping responsive web products
  • Demonstrated visual design skills, especially in the construction of visual hierarchies and UI, and attention to detail on typography, spacing, and color
  • You enjoy both details of the craft and deliberate, long-term systems thinking
  • You enjoy perfecting typography just as much as creating a design system
  • Comfortable designing in Sketch, prototyping in Invision, and expressing motion and interaction with tools such as Principle, Framer, or code
  • A solid understanding of HTML/CSS. You don’t have to code, but you do need to know the materials that you are working with
  • You approach problems holistically and create elegant, simple solutions that account for our current state while keeping an eye towards the future
  • Excellent communication and writing skills: can brainstorm with a group, articulate ideas, and tease out feedback from colleagues
  • A portfolio demonstrating relevant design capabilities is required
  • Applications without portfolios will not be reviewed
