Senior Product Designer at Turing at Techstars NYC
We’re building a next-generation platform that will allow influencers, artists and digital creators to issue their-own blockchain based currencies. This will align incentives between creators and fans, giving fans additional access while allowing creators to build a functioning fan-driven economy. We don’t require you to have previous experience in the blockchain space but expect you to pick up core concepts quickly and have an intellectual curiosity towards the technology.
Creators will distribute their own blockchain-based currencies to fans and offering unique insights and levels of access to holders of their currency. We are launching with a set of well known partners.
Together with our Head of Product, you will synthesize user research, create prototypes, specify information architecture, create information design standards and infuse your understanding of the user into the final product.
You’ll get to make lots of design decisions that define our roadmap and experience first hand how your work is impacting creators and their fans. We have no problem taking your ideas to the next level right away.
We expect you to lead high-level design discussions while rolling up your sleeves as a hands-on contributor for user journeys, personas, style guidelines, customer workshops, UI design, site maps, wireframes, prototyping and testing.
You will work with our multidisciplinary team of business strategists, blockchain developers, crypto-economic thinkers and product managers to establish and meet sprint commitments.
You’ll have impact. You’ll have unparalleled autonomy. You'll make significant contributions to our product while owning design thinking across the company. You'll learn more than you can imagine about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency in the first 30 days here.
You will be able to impact how the world experiences and uses digital currency. This is a place where you can and will solve diverse and complex design challenges. There’s a lot of opportunity to help shape the vision of the company, you’re going to be a decision maker here.
Some of the questions you'll help us answer:
How do you make creators distributing currency to fans feel as natural and fun as watching a video?
How do you present useful currency-based insights in a way that encourage activity on the platform for both fans and creators?
How should the digital currencies and wallets of creators look and feel in a social space?
How can we design a digital currency dashboard that is easy and intuitive to use for our non-technical users?
