We’re looking for a Product Designer to help craft the future of our market-leading digital product suite. This is an amazing opportunity to work in a highly collaborative role and requires an innovative designer, a team player, and a skilled communicator - all rolled into one!

About the role

As a Product Designer you'll tackle complex tasks and transform them into intuitive, accessible and easy-to-use designs for many – from the first time user to the sophisticated expert. Achieving this goal requires collaboration with Designers, Engineers, Support, Marketing and Product Managers throughout the entire design process – from creating user flows and wireframes to building UI mockups and prototypes. At each stage, you will anticipate what our users need, advocate for them and ensure that the final product delights them.

Key Responsibilities

  • Plan and facilitate all design activities in partnership with your designated project team(s), including planning and estimating design, scoping and research
  • Translate research findings into design recommendations and deliverables
  • Participate in Design team activities such as our weekly design critique, including leading by example through sharing your own work on a regular basis
  • Enthusiastically contribute to Design initiatives and be an active and collaborative member of the Design team
  • Collaborate with Product, Engineering and other cross-functional team members

Required Experience and Skills

  • 3+ years designing successful products/services, including responsive and transactional web apps.
  • Keen interest in collaborative design sessions, user testing, user flows, wireframes, visual mockups, prototypes and working directly with engineers.
  • Experience working and collaborating in cross-functional teams (such as product managers and engineers).
  • Experience working in an agile environment.
  • Fluency with visual and interaction and prototyping tools.
  • A good understanding of technical requirements and limitations of responsive web.
