Job Description

We’re looking for an energetic and creative Product Designer to help turn our mission from vision to reality, working from the beginning to the end of product building, from new disruptive ideas to detailed iterations on microinteractions.

Traackr is an incredibly rare opportunity to join a company that is still small but on it’s way to something much bigger, with a meaningful transformative mission, where you would work closely with an incredibly talented product and engineering team. This will be an opportunity to push yourself creatively and to take a few risks. Traackr is a design-driven company and an empowering place for designers to work. With a strong design culture, many smart people to learn from and complete buy-in from the very beginning, this is a place where you will have the opportunity to do the best work of your career.

  • Lead the product design process, collaborating with product and engineering teams to find creative solutions to solve user needs and contribute to defining the 'what' as well as the ‘how'

  • Work through design problems from beginning to end: translating research insights into meaningful new products and features, then designing the workflows and detailed interactions to realize them

  • Sketch and prototype ideas to quickly assess viability, and design the fine grained details of experiences that are incredibly simple and elegant

  • Iterate based on feedback from multiple stakeholders and user studies

  • Oversee the user experience of a product from conception until launch

  • Work extremely closely with Engineering to ensure a high-quality implementation and user experience

  • Lead an effort to up-level visual and interaction design quality of our product and design a modern and thoughtful UI component library

Qualifications

  • You have experience designing digital products and cross-platform experiences. You have helped ship products and weathered release cycles.

  • You have an appreciation of the entire product development process, from problem solving through to detailed UI and visual design.

  • You thrive best when helping to define the requirements, not just translating them into designs.

  • You have highly refined visual, interaction and motion design skills and the ability to communicate the rationale behind design decisions.

  • You have a good eye for detail. You value quality, polish, simplicity and elegance in your work.

  • You build prototypes as a means to explore and convey design solutions using Adobe XD, Framer, Webflow, HTML/CSS/JS, etc. 

  • You are a team player who can effectively collaborate with designers, engineers, PMs, marketing and other teams.
