Getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen. Side hustles become careers, ideas become movements, and chance encounters become lifelong connections. Meetup brings people together to create thriving communities. Show up. Change lives.

As Senior Product Designer, you will invent new ways of connecting people to the communities and activities that they love. If you're someone who is passionate about developing strategies based on insights from real people and can turn those insights into beautifully designed prototypes and products, both interactions and visuals, then this may be the role for you.

What you'll do:

  • Be senior designer as part of a cross-functional product team leading the end-to-end product design process, shipping features across native mobile and web platforms (research, wireframes, prototypes, flows, detailed design specs, managing the visual QA and implementation process)
  • Be autonomous - you'll take full ownership of your work and you take responsibility for every detail each step of the way
  • Inspire what's possible by quickly producing multiple concepts, knowing when to apply attention to detail and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes
  • Communicate clearly to present your work at different stages
  • Actively participate in design critiques to give and receive feedback from other designers to make your work stronger
  • Ability to think long and short-term to meet the constraints of a continuous release process while iterating toward a future vision
  • Partner with the product manager on your team to articulate the long, medium, and short-term opportunities, facilitating alignment exercises when needed (e.g. design sprints, workshops, planning)
  • Build a deep understanding of Meetup's design systems, inter-dependencies, and product roadmap as well as our product development process

Who you are:

  • You have 5-7 years of experience designing at consumer-focused tech or media companies, mostly for mobile experiences
  • You're an excellent communicator and can clearly articulate your design decisions
  • You have a user- and data-focused design mentality and are constantly looking to sharpen your instincts through user feedback and data insight
  • You have the ability to think at a high level about product strategy and vision
  • You have experience in building and shipping applications or software
  • You have a portfolio featuring examples of interaction design work
  • You are excited to help build and lead a design culture at Meetup

Our team is bold, supportive, and passionate about bringing people together in real life to create community for everyone.  We care about moving fast, real-world change and building diverse, dynamic teams. You in?

An Insider's view of Meetup

What does your typical day look like?

As an engineer at Meetup, my mission is to build things that help product teams focus on our users and develop our product faster and with better quality. My team mob programs or pair programs by default, which works great for us because it increases code and architecture, knowledge sharing, focus, productivity and team bonding.

How does the company support your career growth?

I created my own professional development path by participating in the Employee Resource Group and Diversity & Inclusion council. Participating and organizing these company initiatives allowed me to stretch my leadership muscles, understand the value of empathizing with my colleagues, and appreciate the ability to use my voice to influence change.

What's something quirky about your company?

What I enjoy the most about working at Meetup is the people. As a mission driven company with a focus on building community, our community sets a great example. I consider myself incredibly lucky to work amongst such incredible individuals. I feel seen, supported, and empowered to not only be my unique self, but to make the changes I know I can.
