Product Designer, fulltime - friendly tech company empowering small businesses - web and ecommerce design

Location: New York, NY

We can't stop thinking about their soda machine. You can choose from a variety of flavors, and enjoy it out on their sweet downtown roofdeck with sweeping views, amongst friendly company. It's indicative of who they are - a refreshing, sparkling, start-uppy company that cares about the details that make day-to-day life enjoyable.

They're looking to usher into their happy little family a fulltime Product Designer - in this role, you'll be doing web design, ecommerce design, and participate in research. Your portfolio and case studies showcase responsive web design, as well as the full spectrum of your work - your visual design fundamentals (ie: systematic approach to typography and layout), high fidelity UI comps, your UX thinking (sketches, wires, flows, user research), and your iterative approach. You are great at describing not just "what" you designed, but "how" and "why" of your work and design decisions.

They connect customers with their favorite local small businesses, through POS software for in-store devices, a robust customer relationship platform, and beautifully designed loyalty apps. It's a huge, responsive design challenge within a complex ecosystem, involving multiple screens and devices, always thinking about the big picture of how they'll seamlessly interact with each other in both digital and real world interactions. As a Product Designer, you'll be joining their mission-critical design team of 5. You'll be a key member of the team dedicated to getting more of their devices into the hands of small businesses, and designing new features for their newly overhauled and beautiful website, including ecommerce functionality. 
While they have the vibe, values, and ingenuity of start-up culture, they are a part of a network with large resources and infrastructure and huge market share, so you're in a small, nimble, entrepreneurial environment day to day, with the stability and backing of a larger company that lets them operate independently. Their offices are dreamy with clearly a lot of design thinking put into it for their employees happiness - in addition to the aforementioned soda machine and gigantic deck, they have electric standing desks, fancy coffee equipment, a sunny, well-stocked kitchen, and plenty of breakout rooms for collaboration. It's clearly a culture of makers and tinkerers - you can see it in their design, their blog musings, and the passion projects people have in progress on their desks.

You have...
  • 3+ years experience in a relevant design role, such as product designer, interaction designer, or visual designer.
  • Bachelor’s and/or Master's degree in an applicable design discipline (or equivalent experience).
  • Refined skills in typography, composition, and color. If you're classically trained in Graphic Design and/or have a BFA, that's major brownie points.
  • A portfolio of elegant interface design that’s both beautiful and effective, articulating the reasons behind your process and your decisions. Showing iterations, based on user research and analytics, is a plus.
  • Responsive web design experience is essential - if you have localization and globalization experience too, that's a plus
  • Ecommerce experience strongly desired.
  • User Research is a plus
  • Prototyping experience (Figma, Principle, Invision). Ability to code animations and transitions is a plus.
  • Proficiency in Sketch and Adobe CE.
  • Experience in managing complex libraries, symbols, and styles is a plus.
  • Understanding of the constraints, capabilities, and conventions of designing for responsive web, and HTML email.
  • Experience with accessibility guidelines is a plus.
  • A user-centered, collaborative and flexible approach
  • Experience in an Agile environment working closely with both Product and Dev
