We are at the intersection of the next big revolution in the food delivery industry, and we are looking for engineers to help us build it!

 

We’re looking for a Product Designer who will take a key role on our product and engineering team. You will work closely with multiple functions within 2ndKitchen, such as product, engineering, customer success and sales – to understand what our customers love about our product design, and what we can improve. You will own our design process end to end, from ideation, to UI/UX prototyping, to developing interactive designs. You will guide, build and fully own our design process strategy.

– Create wireframes, user flows, sitemaps and mockups to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas 

– Deliver clear prototypes that can be rapidly shared with key stakeholders and/or customers for user testing

– Effectively communicate conceptual ideas, design rationale and the specifics of user-centered design process to cross-functional key stakeholders

– Collaborate closely with our engineering team throughout the entire design and development cycle. – Advocate for a scalable design system and effective design documentation.

– Understand the full design process, from ideation to mockups to development

– Understand agile methodology and apply this mindset to all aspects of your work 

 

What we look for:

– 2-5 years of experience bringing digital products to life (ideally for e-commerce or startups)

– A solid portfolio of product work that can speak to both your UX, visual design, and development skills

– Able to pitch, educate, and define your design rationale to key stakeholders—you can articulate the ‘why’ and lead discussions around your process, explorations, and conclusions

– Able to translate stakeholder goals, user research, and complex user flows into clean, usable UIs

– Solid and up to date understanding of best practices, developments and trends in web and mobile design

– Advanced competence in Photoshop/Sketch, Illustrator, InVision, and any other prototyping tools of your choice

– Front-end development experience (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), including experience taking designs and implementing them as html mockups and working with css/js frameworks such as bootstrap, fontawesome, jquery

– Experience with interactive and static SVGs and illustrations a plus
