We are now recruiting for an experienced Product Designer. Reporting to the VP of Product, you’ll be part of a new team working on a new product that will define a whole new category. You will be tasked with creating the most beautiful user interface the sector has ever seen, with outstanding design strategy, principles, and language at the heart.
When we say this is a greenfield opportunity, we really do mean it. You’ll have a literal blank canvas; directing the aesthetic for our entire user experience, end-to-end. You’ll have all of the tools you need – outstanding developers, product managers, and some of the best clients and partners in the world – as well as the support of an experienced VP.
We’ll give you lots of autonomy, collaboration, ambition, and vision. Along with a promise and commitment to make design, brand, beauty, and magic priorities when we consider what our users see, touch, and experience.
You’ll be joining a team that’s obsessed with shipping the best product; and you’ll be the person we turn to for all things UI, buddying up with a UX Designer to form a dynamic duo.
Our blank canvas opportunity means we need to hire someone who can juggle, prioritise, control, improve, problem solve, and communicate. Our ideal candidate will probably have a good understanding of UX but it’s your UI design skills – and desire to make every user interaction a beautiful one – that we’re most interested in.
