Even is seeking a Lead Product Designer to help craft the best experience for both the millions of consumers that use our products (B2B2C) and the channel partners and financial institutions that use our partner tools (B2B). As part of the product team, you will partner with product managers, engineers, marketers, and business intelligence to solve complex problems by crafting thoughtful, useful and usable user experiences for our platform. You will be building a product design department mentoring product designers, and shaping our design system.
IMPORTANT: All candidates must include a portfolio with personal design contributions or work samples in order to be considered.

  • How can internal tools be optimized to serve channel partners and financial institutions?
  • What should an Even design system look like?

Your day to day:

  • Work autonomously with product managers, engineers, and other stakeholders across teams to create great users experiences from research and prioritization to deployment
  • Be able to work broadly translating high-level business requirements and sometimes narrowly creating detailed wireframes for complex web and mobile applications quickly
  • Help with resourcing, mentoring, coaching, and hiring others while establishing a design culture within the company
  • Design and conduct small and medium scale usability tests and other UX research activities
  • Shape the future of design system tooling and take it in new directions

You may be a fit if you have:

  • 5+ years of professional experience in interaction design / user experience design (both consumer facing and enterprise/SaaS experience preferred)
  • 2+ years of people management experience including mentoring and coaching junior level designers
  • Have the ability to lead multiple projects and competing priorities spanning multiple team members in a fast-paced environment
  • Experience in designing a product from concept to delivery including wireframes, mid-fidelity deliverables, and interactive prototypes (a bonus if you are proficient in Adobe XD/Sketch or if you can prototype with HTML/CSS/Javascript)
  • Strong design vision: ability to be innovative in all spaces and create a wide variety of solutions (a bonus if you have experience with complex data visualizations)
  • Customer-focused design approach and expert-level knowledge in UI and UX methodologies and usability testing with sound methodology
  • Ability to think strategically about overall platform focus, direction, and integration
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills for technical and non-technical stakeholders
