hi ITPers!
We’ve got a great opportunity for a Sr or Lead Visual UI Designer, with lovely styleguides / extensible design languages in their portfolio, who’s on the upward move and wants to really make an impact on a company, and an entire industry! Salary + equity + unlimited PTO + great benefits.

Our client is a small-to-midsized startup in the celeb/influencer-marketing SaaS platform world, founded by prominent influencers themselves in the sports, tech, and start-up worlds.

They are seeking a fulltime HEAD OF PRODUCT DESIGN / UI, for an ambitious Senior and Lead level designer who is ready for a move upwards in their career.

This is a key, high-profile position – you’ll start off by *being* the design department, stewarding their product’s look, feel, and functionality, which is huge, as their design is one of their biggest selling propositions as a company overall.

You’ll eventually help grow the team, and meanwhile, you’re joining a super-passionate team of engineers, creative technologists, and product managers that are hungry to tackle complex design challenges, and who are design-savvy themselves with whom you can bounce ideas off each other and brainstorm, in a highly collaborative environment.

They have an elegant, minimalist design aesthetic – as do you! – and you’ll be empowered to evolve the UI and user experience within this airy aesthetic.
The company has the ethos to be ever-improving, to continually delight their clients with design-driven enhancements which make their job easier and fun.

It’s the kind of place where people like to geek out on the details, and come up with rocking micro-interactions, elegant use of color, intuitive search and discovery tools.
As it’s a new market space, you and your collaborators will have a huge opportunity for creativity and impact – intuiting what features and visualizations the users want before they know they want them.

Your background:

– A strong portfolio showing pixel-perfect attention to detail, and at least 1-2 strong examples of styleguides and extensible design languages.
– Your philosophy is “the devil is in the details” and you know that even micro-enhancements can mean the world to your users’ experience and put a smile on their face
– Visual UI or Product Design experience – with plenty of UX design and strategy in the mix
——> most UX thinking is done through whiteboarding with the team, so you won’t be expected to crank out wires all day, but you should be able to know how to build something complex from a blank screen and not need a UX designer to help you.
– Mastery of design tools – Sketch strongly preferred
– Proven ability to create and evolve consistent visual direction, design patterns and systemic guidelines for complex products
– Track record of working closely and collaboratively with product, engineering, and marketing on products that have launched
– Experience with end-to-end product lifecycle: sketches => wireframes => prototype => execution, taking customer and analytic feedback to help inform your designs
– You’re great at answering the “why” of your design decisions, and have a strong POV, but can take feedback and let go of ideas without your ego being bruised
– You’re someone who cares deeply about quality, and always strive to improve and advance your products over time
