Product Designer

HotelTonight makes it remarkably easy to book great hotels at amazing last-minute rates on your mobile device, for tonight, tomorrow, and next week. We take enormous pride in the product experiences we deliver to our customers, and strive to build amazing products that challenge the status quo. Design is something we care about deeply and is core to our efforts to provide world-class products that facilitate memorable experiences.

We are looking for an outstanding Product Designer who shares our passion for creating stunning products used by millions of people every day. You can draw and think and prototype and you love to build things. You’ll work primarily with our Product Managers building features for our Web platform. You’ll get the chance to dig deep into the needs of our hotel partners as well as our customers, designing solutions that serve both equally well.

This is an opportunity to have a real impact, building a next-level product with a tight-knit team at an established company that still moves fast and skips the bureaucracy. We’re set up in a beautiful space at Market & 5th with generous comp, great benefits and more perks than you can handle.
