The Role:

The TravelPerk Product Design team is looking for its next top hire. If you consider yourself an autonomous Product Designer who has worked on SaaS products, and keeps the customer at the heart of everything you do, read on…

In TravelPerk, we work in “squads” which are small, autonomous teams made up of full-stack engineers, a Product Manager, and a Product Designer. As a Product Designer, you will be expected to own design end-to-end within your squad while contributing to the wider design team and product functions within TravelPerk.

But that’s not all…We are looking for someone who will break squad boundaries. This means that you should also be comfortable taking ownership of and driving forward a complementary specialism(s) as well as having a wider impact across teams.

This role can be based from our Barcelona, London or Edinburgh hubs and requires you to be in the office once per week, or four times per month.

What you’ll do:

Within your squad, we expect that you are confident in the following:

  • Developing a partnership with your Product Manager to fully understand customer needs and business value, challenging each other to raise the bar for your product area
  • Working with our in-house Researcher to co-ordinate and run usability tests, discovery sessions, contextual analyses plus any other relevant research required to better understand the problems that our customers are faced with, identifying ways to uncover opportunities
  • Working with our data team to interrogate various data sources to uncover relevant quantitative insights
  • Ideating quickly and effectively with your squad, favouring communication and collaboration over ping-ponging via tools
  • Understanding technical constraints and opportunities through a fundamental understanding of web technologies (HTML5, CSS, JS, APIs) allowing you to communicate ideas effectively with engineers and fellow designers
  • Working with our in-house Content Design team to ensure that the product follows the style guide and is effectively localize
  • Working with, and contributing to the Product Design System
  • Continuously optimizing the design process in your squad and across the wider team
  • Testing and optimizing low–high fidelity prototypes with key stakeholders and customers to iteratively validate that we are solving the right problems
  • Driving a mobile-first mindset in your squad and beyond
  • Mentoring and supporting fellow designers, bringing your unique skill-set and continually raising the bar of the team and our products
  • Influencing and supporting the growth of the team through hiring, networking, and sourcing future team members

What you’ll need:

  • Strong experience of working for a SaaS product. Travel industry experience is a plus, but not required
  • Good understanding of technology and user experience design, both for web and mobile
  • Have a solid grasp of User Experience and Visual Design fundamentals
  • Experience working with Sketch or Figma
  • Solid communication skills (verbal and written). You are comfortable presenting ideas to multiple stakeholders and articulately defending design decisions
  • Ability to influence product roadmaps, working alongside Product Managers and Engineers
  • Advocating for and rolling out Design Systems
  • Regular interaction with customers and prospects to understand the problem space
  • A positive and proactive team player who can help to elevate us
  • English language skills to a professional level, both writing and speaking

Why you'll love our team

  • We are a team of 30 talented Product Designers, Content Designers and Researchers. We like to think of ourselves as high-achievers, goal-oriented, and eager to learn and grow. We foster efficiency through autonomy and creativity through collaboration
  • Working in the Product Design team will ensure high-quality design, strategic impact on the product and next-level GIFs 😎
  • In the Product Design team, you will find a strong culture of ownership, impact-over-effort and lending support to each other, there are no egos and transparency is highly valued
  • We are a heterogeneous team with multiple nationalities and backgrounds, pushing for getting better, having fun and always asking why (of course)
  • In the next 12 months, we have the challenge to grow our team to almost double its current size, supporting every squad while also scaling our Content and Research functions
