We are looking for an experienced designer to join a small cross-functional team whose mission it is to help shape the next generation products for Spotify. Someone who is passionate about developing strategies based off of insights of real people, has the mastery of their craft to turn these insights into expertly designed products (both interactions and visuals) and inspire the organization by showing/prototyping what is possible before it is built.
What we are looking for
Truly inspiring communication skills. Setting the frameworks and initial design concepts by doing and mentoring others to deliver work to make the strategic thinking real.
Incredible design chops. You’ve shipped many consumer products over your many years in the industry and understand what it takes to create consumer oriented UIs.
Head in the clouds feet on the ground. You are someone who get’s nervous if they are not sketching concepts, tweaking flows and polishing the designs that represent the big thinking work.
People focused design. Even though you have incredible design chops you are constantly looking to hone your design instinct through user feedback. Whether that is by actively being involved in the user research or by designing options for an A/B test you are willing to design as if you are right but listen as if you are wrong.
Lagom. “Lagom” is a Swedish word that means “balanced”. Whether it is in the methods that you use to explore and express your work or in the way you interact with others – we are looking for individuals that represent a diverse but balanced approach. This often translates to people with great creative skills and an analytic approach to discovering what works. No egos required because the work speaks for itself.
7+ yrs experience in design roles at a consumer focused tech or media company or product design agency.
Thoughtful portfolio that showcases your design skills and illustrates your communication abilities by clearly describing your impact and what you learned for each project.
Led the design effort across the entire product lifecycle and multiple product launches.
Mentoring and teamwork: You set the vision for the user experience and create the space for others others to collaborate.
Ability to rapidly lead and produce multiple UX/UI concepts and prototypes; balancing pixel-perfect attention to detail against opting for low-fi design to optimize workflow and process.
Outstanding communication, presentation and organizational skills.
Multi-platform experience is a plus.
