What you will be doing

Your mission as a Product Designer is to create user-centered design solutions that feature ease of use, employ best-in-class interaction design, and optimize user experience. You have the exciting opportunity to design the best user experience for both our intelligence tool and B2B marketplace.

Your primary responsibilities are:

  • User research: conduct user research using both qualitative (e.g., interviews, focus groups) and quantitative (e.g., surveys, analytics) methods to understand the users’ needs, motivations, and behaviors. Deliverables could include a design vision, personas and user journeys/flows/maps to guide the design process
  • UX optimization: identify usability issues across the product, employing heuristic evaluation and user feedback mechanisms
  • Prototyping: translate functional requirements into prototypes of varying fidelity (low, mid, high) to gather targeted feedback through usability tests. Incorporate user feedback to iterate and improve concepts continuously
  • Design system: develop, maintain and evolve a design system and/or style guide to ensure UI consistency and alignment with the brand identity. Continuously explore and propose innovative concepts to improve user engagement and satisfaction
  • Visual and interaction design: develop the product’s visual language, including color schemes, typography, iconography, and interactive elements to create an intuitive and attractive interface. This design should be responsive and adaptive for an optimal viewing experience across devices
  • UI copy: create microcopy that improves the navigation and experience of the platform, aligning this with marketing. Use user feedback and engagement metrics to refine and improve UI copy
  • Delivery: oversee and contribute to timely completion of the design process and product delivery (from user research to implementation) in collaboration with PMs, developers and marketers. Monitor progress and address any issues or obstacles that may arise. Implement improvements in design processes.
