Senior Product Designer, Commerce (Extensions) at Squarespace
Squarespace is a design-centric product company at heart whose mission is to be the all-in-one platform for anyone who wants to stand out. We are looking for a Senior Product Designer to help guide the direction of future releases. You will be challenged in an organization that values vision, execution, and persistence. You will take ownership of our product by solving complex problems in simple, elegant ways.
We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to work with the Commerce team to help entrepreneurs start and grow their online businesses. The Extensions team helps small businesses scale by adding functionality to Squarespace with third-party apps. From sales, to store management, to logistics and beyond, Extensions are the most powerful way to provide our customers with critical functionality that allows them to grow their business with flexibility and ease.
You'll continuously collaborate with product and engineering from discovery to delivery to iteration. Together with your product team, you will own the integration experience for our small businesses and iterate toward the gold standard. This project cuts across all parts of the Squarespace product, and therefore many teams. Without ignoring the implementation details, you're comfortable working with diverse teams, and are excited to set standards and design systems that other designers will need to follow.
You will report to a Design Lead on the Commerce team.
