Product Design Lead

Team Description

Our Design team crafts delightful experiences that make people’s lives easier. We're a close-knit, collaborative group, guided by a highly iterative design process.

Role Description

At its core, design is a method of problem solving — a way to solve problems for people or help them accomplish their goals. The Team Lead solves problems with elements ranging from people, relationships, resources, and company goals. The Design Lead operates within the constraints of viability, feasibility, and desirability — through the lens of thoughtful, human-centered design. As a team lead you own a significant product effort, and ensure design priorities are aligned with our users and company goals.
