Lead Product Designer
We’re looking for a Lead Product Designer that loves to make complicated things simple. You’ll be building intuitive and elegant experiences for a seamless design editor. You’ll be responsible for taking features throughout the design journey: from ideas to rough sketches, to prototypes, to something engineers can implement, through different iterations. You’ll work with multiple internal teams, including product management, engineering, sales and marketing, and interface closely with customers to solicit feedback and test your designs.
We’re currently working on a new version of our platform that reinvents the way professionals tell visual stories. You’ll be leading the entire design team, helping them be the best version of themselves, improving our strategy and processes. This isn’t a managerial role, you also will be getting your hands dirty yourself. You will report directly to the CEO.
The Lead Product Designer will be responsible for the following items.
1. Defining the product experience
From wire-framing to designing end-to-end flows and prototypes, you will be in charge of designing products that solve problems in a simple and elegant way. You love a good challenge of turning the complex into simple solutions that solve customer needs. Running regular user testing workshops and guerilla testing are also things that you believe in.
2. Leading and providing guidance to the design team
You coach and review the design process on a regular basis. The team regularly presents at product and design reviews. You identify areas for improvement and ensure the team has the right skills and training. You inspire and elevate the team by producing work that is always raising the bar.
3. Analytical/Decision Making
You manage high-level product design strategy while remaining hands-on in design skills.
You collaborate with stakeholders (users, customers, product managers, sales, engineers) to translate business goals into unique product experiences. You work with user research (evaluative and generative) studies to recommend and implement continuous improvements to the product, reviewing the performance and finding ways to enhance it.
You have 5 or more years of experience in Product/UX design in a highly technical environment and at least 2 years in a mentorship/leadership role. You possess an enjoyment of analytics and curiosity for discovering insights from data. You have strong communication skills, with the ability to explain using data and customer insights to influence design decisions. You have exceptional cross-functional collaboration skills. You must be comfortable and confident in leading discussions with domain experts at all levels. You are able to balance customer needs with business goals, market viability and technical feasibility. You have a portfolio that showcases a sophisticated aesthetic with strengths in design systems, and visual storytelling.
This position is remote, and we prefer the candidate to be in Asia or Europe.
Benefits we offer:
4-day Work Week and Work/life harmony: Although we expect you to be available throughout the day, we're family-friendly and we give you the flexibility you need to stay happy and healthy.

Limited meetings: You're not stuck relaying information in meetings every day of the week.
Transparent leadership: Both the CEO and your direct manager are always available to chat and listen to your feedback, time zones permitting.
