Senior Product Design role for a solid very cool start-up client based out of Southern California but the company is fully remote now and will remain so after Covid. Great team, great business model.

We are a 6 year old technology company in the real estate space on a mission to make buying and selling a home a truly delightful experience. To us, this mission is urgent, and we pour our hearts, minds, and every bit of energy we have into it. We have a flywheel-driven business model with a company culture that is built upon helping people uncover their biggest strengths and empowering them to use them to the fullest extent possible. We’re also delightfully weird, and take pride in being authentically ourselves. If this sounds like a place you’d find interesting — keep reading!

We have a “work from anywhere” company culture. This means you have complete freedom to decide where you want to work (at home, at a coffee shop, in our office in Orange, California once it reopens safely, or traveling the country van-life style). If you have a strong WIFI signal and are available during essential working hours, you’re good. Therefore, we are open to candidates in any location in the US. Learn more about how we work here.

Our UX Team is seeking an enthusiastic Senior Product Designer to own design for our B2C product, a collaborative home search tool and home report that simplifies local real estate for homeowners and prospective home buyers. In this key role, you will be working closely with researchers, designers, engineers, and product managers to craft meaningful features that engage and delight consumers in every step of the home search, buying, and ownership journey. You’ll join a team of talented and passionate UX geeks embracing change in our industry, developing our crafts, and melding UX and Agile methods to create a truly special place to work.

What you’ll do 

  • Design satisfying, effective end-to-end user experiences across a variety of features in our product ecosystem
  • Work with researchers, designers, and stakeholders to fully embrace UX strategy (ideation, research, testing, etc) to deliver the best experience possible.
  • Participate in design reviews, stakeholder meetings, and asynchronous collaboration within and outside of your team.
  • Autonomously identify the problems, users, goals, and outcomes behind any project and when you cannot identify those – ask questions and speak up to make sure we’re investing design effort wisely
  • Be an active participant in our company and UX Team culture
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts, knowing when to early design assets, lo-fi mockups, and prototypes and when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail.
  • Be a champion and advocate for UX Design thinking on both your product team and across the company.
  • Actively contribute in building and evolving our Design Systems to ensure a consistent visual language across web and mobile platforms.

Requirements:

  •  4+ years of post-education UX/product design experience working on a team with other designers, engineers, and product managers
  • A solid grasp and appreciation of design fundamentals, including visual design and UI. As one of three other designers, you’ll play a core role in developing and evolving a strong, scalable, UX/UI product foundation.
  • Demonstrable experience designing mobile web experiences, including adaptive or responsive design.
  • Practical experience or knowledge of how to work with an existing brand and product – even better if you have forged a design system from a legacy product
  • Experience working directly with engineers and product managers (collaboration, annotation, handoff) as well as collaborating with multiple designers.
  • Very strong visual design and interaction design skills (detail oriented!)
  • Ability to articulate, annotate, and provide evidence for the UX strategy behind your UI.
  • Experience using Figma. While you don’t have to have a ton of experience with this design tool, you will need to be able to jump in and get comfortable quickly.
  • Online portfolio showcasing design files and case studies we can review. (We’ll sign an NDA). We need to see real work experience (as opposed to spec work or coursework). The interview process includes a design showcase. Show us what you’ve got!

Nice to have:

  •  Experience optimizing designs for accessibility
  • iOS and Android design experience
  • Experience launching or managing a design system for an existing product
  • Real estate tech experience (especially designing for homebuyers/owners)
  • Agile product environment experience

Design Culture

Collaboration
You’ve got the confidence to defend or concede points without ego, know when to call meetings and when to document, and social skills come naturally to you. This exceptionalism allows you to collaborate joyfully and effectively both within your team and beyond.

Empathy
Your empathetic outlook is a defining part of you and it extends to everyone. You have a community first mentality and you understand that designing for all walks of life requires cultural sensitivity – which comes naturally to you both in your design thinking and social skills.

Communication
You know how to ask for, give, and receive feedback. You help others get better at this too, just by being you. Your listening, story-telling, and writing skills are top notch, which helps your communication prowess translate to all of the ways we communicate in a remote work environment.

Big picture mindset
Constraints fuel your creativity and you’re excited to innovate – but you know how to keep the north star in view and face limitations with grace. You know when to follow patterns and when to break standards in order to accomplish our mission.

We’re on a mission to make buying and selling a home a truly delightful experience. We’re a committed group of delightful weirdos that are passionate about solving problems in the real estate space. Culture is an essential part of what makes us successful, and we work hard to cultivate an environment that is transparent, collaborative, and growth-focused in both what we do and who we are.

We are a distributed team that enables our team members to “work from anywhere”. This means you have complete freedom to decide where you want to work (at home, at a coffee shop, in our office in Orange, California once it reopens safely, or traveling the country van-life style). If you have a strong WIFI signal and are available during essential US time zone working hours, you’re good. We are open to candidates in any location in the US. Learn more about how we work here.
