Title: Senior Product Designer

 

At ZapLabs, we work to build and improve a platform that helps real estate professionals work effectively, and helps delight home buyers and sellers with an excellent experience. We do that by combining great technology with great people – and we’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our team.

 

What we’re looking for:

You’re a meticulous Product Designer who’s curious about why people do what they do, and you love delivering good user experiences. You have at least 5 years of experience creating compelling products and user-centered design solutions. You’re constantly reading about UX design best practices and staying abreast of current trends. You combine your research-driven design process with a great sense of aesthetics. You try to understand what users do, not just what they say, and how to deliver a great feature for their true use case. You’re somewhat fanatical about pattern libraries and information architecture. You’re able to communicate and ardently defend good user experience design to all comers. You enjoy being part of a fast-paced, collaborative team and want to be an integral part of solving complex problems with simple, easy to use solutions.

 

What you’ll do:

You’ll join ZapLabs’s Product Design team, turning product ideas into great user experiences. In this role, you’ll be responsible for partnering with UX Researchers to design and help conduct research studies: everything from user personas to UX tests for existing or new features. Working with Product Managers, you’ll translate product strategy and user requirements into full-fledged user experiences for the web and mobile – creating pixel-perfect mockups, user flow diagrams, and interactive prototypes to solve complex interactions. Lastly, you’ll work with our Engineering teams to collaborate on turning mockups into features, working together to maintain a polished and scalable pattern library. You’ll be expected to use data, competitive research, and analytic rigor in designing our user experiences. Most importantly, you’ll embody a spirit of empathy for our users’ needs, learn constantly, and move fast.

 

Skills, accomplishments, & interests you should have:

  • 5+ years experience designing for customer-facing websites or business web applications
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Design or related design field
  • Experience designing user interactions, user flows, wireframes, high-fidelity mocks, prototypes, and detailed design specifications
  • Ability to support design work using all available insights – including customer feedback, usability findings, quantitative data, and site metrics
  • Sound understanding and appreciation of latest UI/UX design concepts and best practices
  • Experience designing mobile interfaces and/or designing mobile applications strongly preferred
  • Ability to handle multiple priorities on tight deadlines without compromising quality
  • Excellent communication and leadership skills
  • Proven track record presenting to and influencing people, from other designers to senior executive management
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Cloud, Sketch, and prototyping tools (InVision, Keynote, etc)

 

Nice to haves:

  • Experience designing for enterprise SaaS, accessibility, mobile apps, responsive design, and analytics/big data visualization
  • We’re always looking for folks to join our culture of passionate hobbyists! We have a tendency to nerd out on everything from LOTR and Star Wars to competitive baking to our company soccer team, the Lab Rats.
