We’re looking for a product design lead who can drive products from conception to market with ease. As a leader you contribute every step of the way, ensuring that the vision you’ve crafted is the right fit for the business and the users needs. You work hands-on with designers, engineers, product managers, researchers and various departments to develop a strategy and perspective at scale. You’re motivated by goals and outcomes, staying focused on the big picture and giving care to the details when it makes sense. You iterate fast, utilize data, user research and collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to ensure that the direction you’ve set is the right path to your goal. You aren’t afraid to make mistakes, learn and even say “I don’t know”. You mentor designers at all levels encouraging them to think outside their own ideas and limits. You know that you’re only as good as your team, and foster an open dynamic culture by leading by example.
