Product Designer

If you are an experienced UI / UX Product Designer with strong visual design skills, a passion for solving real world problems, and the desire to work at a fast paced startup, we want to talk to you! As a Product Designer at Yesware, you will work on every part of the design process, from research and prototyping to final visual design. You will be tasked with owning the entire design cycle from conception to launch for a range of projects. You'll design new features and iterate on existing ones to create simple yet powerful user experiences that empower and enable our customers to reach and exceed their goals.

Our Product Designers are collaborative and autonomous. Product Designers sometimes come together to tackle big projects and often lead the charge for design as the only designer working with a cross-functional team. The design team also has regular critiques so that we are in sync about what’s being done and how we can help each other. We are flexible enough to accommodate a constantly changing environment but also empowered to stand up for what we know to be true.

You possess:

  • A minimum of 2+ years of working in UI/UX Design for web or mobile applications at fast paced software companies
  • A good eye! You are a true bar raiser when it comes to pushing the boundaries of visual and interaction design
  • Strong Interaction Design Skills – The ability to think through complex landscapes and systems to create simple, straightforward workflows that empower our users; a focus on ease-of-use and simplicity; the ability to prototype lots of ideas quickly to identify what’s worth pursuing and what isn’t, and gain insights into user wants and needs
  • Strong Visual Design Skills – A high personal bar for visual design quality and a keen eye for the details; the drive to help us push our visual design standards to be constantly improving as our platform grows; the ability and desire to contribute to a holistic design system and help it continuously evolve
  • An interest in and appreciation for research – Openness and curiosity about our users and our business in order to develop expertise in these areas to inform designs; desire and ability to speak with users frequently to learn about them and their needs
  • Ability to work effectively with a variety of people and situations – A self-directed and collaborative working style; the ability to diplomatically explain what does and doesn't make sense from a user experience standpoint; the ability to balance user centered design with engineering feasibility; an ability to thrive in an environment with a constantly changing landscape

In this role you will:

  • Shepherd ideas from hazy conceptual stages all the way to clear, well-defined designs that provide measurable value to our customers
  • Lead cross-functional ideation sessions to generate a wide variety of ideas before honing in
  • Work closely with Product Managers, Designers, and Engineers to explore and validate ideas
  • Use customer feedback and product metrics to inform your designs
  • Create prototypes and test them with customers to validate ideas and test usability
  • Participate in usability tests and exploratory research calls with customers
  • Create high fidelity, pixel perfect visual designs that align with our design system
  • Assist Engineers with implementing designs by sweating the details and contributing to our live style guide
