What you'll do

You will solve business problems with design solutions and drive the product design and discovery process to ensure we deliver impactful and impressive products to our users. 

  1. Product Discovery 🔭

You own the product discovery process together with our product managers and other product designers.

  • You lead qualitative & quantitative user research to develop a deep understanding of our customers.
  • You apply a 'jobs-to-be-done' mindset to uncover user needs and determine the right problems to solve.
  • You create discovery artefacts such as user personas, journey maps, or empathy maps.

2. Product Design 🎨

You design a holistic customer experience across all touch points.

  • You create and iterate on wireframes, mockups, click-through prototypes.
  • You produce the final hi-res designs for implementation with great attention to detail considering all possible permutations (e.g. hover, error states, transitions)
  • You organise and manage design artefacts.

3. Product Delivery 🏗

You support, collaborate, and provide feedback to engineers during implementation and ensure the developed product adheres to the original design vision.

4. Design Strategy 🤔

You create and drive the implementation of a design strategy that supports a great user experience, while balancing customer needs, company goals, design cohesion, and ease of implementation.

5. Design Systems 🪐

You will own our design system and provide a consistent experience for all users across all platforms.

6. Continuous Improvement 🔄

Together with the team, you continuously iterate, improve, and refine the ways we collaborate and deliver products to our customers.
