Senior Product Designer, Mobile (Worldwide Remote)

Job description

We are a diverse, fully distributed team from around the world, working toward a shared vision to raise the standard of trust online.


Join our team as a remote Senior Product Designer, Mobile and help shape the DuckDuckGo user experience across our mobile apps.


As part of our growing team, you will collaborate with team members at all levels to identify and close major gaps in our mobile products. You will be involved in the entire design process, from ideation to execution, and have a voice in all product decisions, big and small.


We empower our team to be self-directed and self-motivated in their work. If you'd thrive in that environment, and our core values resonate with you -- build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction -- you'll fit right in!


WHAT YOU WILL DO:
  • Lead projects from proposal through postmortem, assessing vague problems, proposing high impact solutions, and executing them against a set of success criteria.
  • Practice hands-on leadership, by creating pixel perfect mockups, flows, and prototypes that guide our mobile teams to a solution.
  • Champion the future of our apps by keeping the team informed of the latest requirements and mobile OS releases.
  • Solve challenging design problems in a creative and visually impactful way.
  • Lead development of projects by taking vague problems, scoping them into high impact projects, and executing them against a set of success criteria.
  • Collaborate with mobile engineers to ship exceptional mobile experiences.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to create impactful work that is informed by data and user feedback.
  • Actively participate in maintaining a strong design culture with an openness to educate others with your expertise.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
  • 6+ years of product design experience with a minimum of 2+ years in senior-level design positions at significant global consumer brands.
  • A proven track record and hands-on strengths in designing native mobile apps, as demonstrated in your portfolio.
  • Strong attention to craft and an ability to produce high quality mockups and prototypes that will end up directly in the hands of users.
  • Relevant knowledge in native mobile apps requirements with an eye on what's possible in future releases.
  • Strong aesthetic sensibility with acute attention to detail.
  • Prior experience participating in multiple areas of the product process, e.g. user testing, producing mockups.
  • Ability to carry ideas forward with confidence and discretion while working proactively, independently and transparently.
  • Expertise working with and evolving design systems across products.
  • Proficiency with leveraging both qualitative and quantitative data in making design decisions.
