Product Designer

Book of the Month is looking for an ambitious, versatile designer to execute and grow a digital product that’s as beautiful as it is functional. You’ll lead all things product design—from wireframe, visual design, and interaction design through prototyping, implementation, and deployment. Our company is at a transformative stage and our new product designer will help define how 600,000+ monthly visitors interact with our digital product.

What you’ll do here

  • Design and prototype intuitive feature and site experiences that consider business, tech, and marketing needs while upholding brand standards.
  • Incorporate user research, data analysis, and stakeholder feedback as you iterate on design solutions.
  • Partner with PMs and engineers to support pixel-perfect development of designs.
  • Collaborate with brand designers to ensure consistency in visual styles across all touchpoints in the customer journey.
  • Maintain and evolve our product design system, style guide, and processes.

What you bring to the table

  • 3+ years product design experience—especially in-house for consumer-facing products—across mobile and desktop web applications
  • A strong portfolio visual and interaction design
  • Self-starting ambition—we’re an early-stage startup and the people who thrive here are comfortable moving quickly and taking initiative  
  • Fluency in Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, and a prototyping tool of your choice
  • Familiarity with usability metrics, relevant HCI theory, and UX best practices
  • Ability to work in a lean/agile/iterative process—sometimes “good enough” is the right decision for the business as a whole
  • General understanding of relevant technologies to support partnering with engineers
  • Comfort presenting and defending your work to C-level stakeholders
  • Degree in interaction designer or HCI a plus but not required
