Senior Product Designer
Devpost's mission is to inspire the world's developers to build great software. Developers consider us their go-to site for discovering and competing in the world’s software competitions (hackathons) both inside and outside of their organizations. Millions use Devpost to learn, be creative, collaborate, and earn prizes and recognition. As the next Senior Product Designer on our team you’ll be designing how thousands of people will experience their next hackathon!
Customers who trust us to inspire these developers include Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Atlassian, Square, DocuSign, Twitter, Snapchat, many startups, non-profits, and more.
ABOUT THE ROLE
This is a high impact opportunity for an experienced design professional on a small but mighty product team. At its core, this role is about building delightful user experiences for people who love building for others just as much as you do.
WE’RE EXCITED TO TALK IF YOU:
Are passionate about design from ideation to implementation
You know what tools to use and when in order to build solutions that solve real user problems - whether that means conducting quantitative or qualitative user research, identifying user needs, mapping user flows, iteratively creating wireframes, testing assumptions through clickable prototypes, or delivering high fidelity mock-ups with detailed UI and visual design specifications to Product and Engineering teams, you love every minute of it.
You are consistently an advocate for our users, pushing us all to produce delightful, intuitive and functional software while inspiring the team with the latest design tools and techniques.
Thrive in collaborative environments
You’ll be working with developers, product managers, designers, customer success and other stakeholders to bring your ideas to life and validate your design decisions.
You know who you should talk to keep yourself moving and whether or not that means an async chat in Slack or a collaborative working session on Zoom
Are a strong communicator who checks their ego at the door
You're confident and articulate in communicating your ideas to stakeholders while being open to feedback. You understand how to tell stories using both words and visuals, and strategize the best ways to drive alignment.
Prototypes are the primary canvas for communicating your ideas
Have industry experience with the tools of the trade
You have experience designing for established SaaS (or web-based software) products and can run projects independently end to end.
Motivated by the challenge of working on both an established platform and an entirely new product with lots of room for growth
You’ll be joining the market leader in publicly accessible Hackathons! A platform that is used by hundreds of thousands of students, hobbyists and professionals. But that’s not all, you will also have a direct hand in building the future of our brand new B2B Hackathon offering, Devpost for Teams.
Are prepared and excited for this opportunity
We’re not too fussy about years of experience or how many degrees you have, but to have all of the above covered you probably have 5+ years of professional experience. You will be helping to lead the design discipline at Devpost for two products that directly impact the global software development community and that excites you.
