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.

Your day to day:

  • 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

  • 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
