Senior Product Designer

| Culver City
We are building the future of freight
At Mothership, we believe in unlocking the world's potential through speeding up the delivery of everything people need. Started in 2017, we’re backed by some of venture capital’s best investors and have already become the logistics backbone for many of today’s most innovative companies.
To double down on that success, we’re looking for highly driven and detail-oriented individuals looking to add value, solve problems and join a rocket ship. If that's you, come help us reshape logistics. Together we'll replace tired and comfortable incumbents with a modern marketplace built around speed, ease of use and fairness.
As Senior Product Designer, you'll get to design our customer and driver experiences on web and mobile with bold vision going from prototype to final designs. 
The ideal individual for this position is someone who relishes the opportunity to push product from the ground up and is looking for ownership to spread their wings and test the limits. You’re focused on action and lead by example in a hands on and collaborative way.

What you'll get to do

  • Build flows that make the complex feel simple through great design
  • Architect the style and structure of our design language system
  • Iterate and align brand feel to always be fresh and ahead
  • Meet with users and get to understand their problems and desires
  • Schedule and run user testing on prototypes to validate your hypothesis
  • Establish key metrics to indicate success or failure after new designs rollout

What success looks like in this role

  • 5+ years of UI/UX product design experience creating web and mobile apps at either a well-established organization or at a high-growth company 
  • You work primarily within Sketch or Figma
  • Significant experience doing in-person user research and effectively using the findings
  • Experience working with engineers and delivering projects in a clear and concise way
  • Ability to build and explain component based design systems to both design professionals and non-specialists
  • Understanding of complex user tasks that scale from novice to advanced
  • Excellent communication and people skills
  • Experience working in a fast paced and execution focused environment
  • Strong work ethic, sense of urgency and accountability
  • Bachelor’s degree or higher preferred but not required

What makes someone successful on your team?

Do right by your fellow humans. We want you to know that the company never wants you to do or act in a way that violates this core value within yourself. And if you’re ever in a position where you feel you’re being pushed to cross the line, tell someone in leadership immediately. We'll do this with honor and truly leave the world a better place.
