Senior Product Designer

Vancouver, BC

We are looking for a Senior Product Designer to join a cross-functional product team in creating world-class experiences that help people find and enjoy a home of their own.

A Senior Product Designer plays an integral role in the performance and operation of a high-functioning product team. This role is expected to partner with the Product Manager and Engineering Lead from start to finish, from initial research and understanding of user problems, through scoping and the creation of user journeys, all the way to polished pixels, shipped to the hands of our 100 million unique users.

We’re not looking for a unicorn; Senior Product Designers should have a high degree of comfort performing all the duties throughout the full design process of a product or feature their team is shipping. As with any seasoned designer, we fully expect that you will have stronger skills in some areas than others (i.e., stronger visual chops than research prowess). To be successful in this role, you will need to confidently partner with your cross-functional counterparts to tackle design responsibilities for the full product lifecycle. While you will be the primary designer on your squad, the full Design team is always ready to assist and collaborate. You will additionally have hands-on support from your Director of Design, to whom this role reports.

What will you do?

Responsibilities

+ Collaborate with a diverse group of stakeholders—including researchers, product leaders, engineers, product marketing, brand, and other designers—on complex problems

+ Be the voice of the user, and explore multiple ideas while also knowing when to bring the work to an executable deliverable

+ Deliver innovative solutions which significantly improve user experience across products for your team

+ Independently lead all aspects of the design process from conception to completion

+ Articulate the value of design as well as the reasons for your design decisions clearly, in non-designer-speak, to Product and Engineering teammates as well as other important stakeholders

+ Receive design feedback with professionalism and patience, and give clear and usable design feedback to design peers

+ Actively contribute to the evolution and strengthening of our design system, including crafting components, auditing libraries, and ensuring quality in application of the system

+ Facilitate workshops, design sprints, and other collaborative sessions for your team

+ Uphold a high standard for design excellence, and contribute to raising the bar for design at the company

What will you bring?

Requirements

+ 5+ years working in design industry

+ 3+ years of working in a product-led organization

+ Portfolio which examples a strong design point of view and depth of experience, including user-centered design methodologies, interaction flows, prototyping, high-fidelity screens, and shipped products

+ Experience delivering multiple projects with cross-disciplined teams

+ Strong and clear communication skills

+ Informed and strong opinions, loosely held

+ A practitioner of user-centric processes and design thinking principles

+ Mastery of design

+ Exemplifies a We, Not Me attitude
