VP of Design

HotelTonight makes it remarkably easy to book great hotels at amazing last-minute rates on your mobile device, for tonight, tomorrow and next week. Our mission is to make people feel more alive by delivering the unexpected and we’re looking for a VP of Design to help do just that. You’ll implement our visual identity across all of HotelTonight and lead and shape our visual strategy and design systems, merging business needs with consistent, high quality user experiences wherever HotelTonight puts it mark. 

This won’t be your first rodeo; you’ve brought horsepower to an organization's visual design in the past and have championed for cohesion and uniformity in every pixel that Marketing, Product, and Engineering produce.  

You believe in harmony between creating rich and memorable product experiences and the simplicity of beautiful design. You obsess over font size, colors, kerning, and consistency. You have an eye for greatness, a profound appreciation for beauty, and exceptionally high standards that deliver designs that perform.

You have a keen business sense and an immense respect for the supportive role you play in contributing to the organization’s strategy and objectives. You relish in being both a player and a coach, and like to dream big while (most importantly) getting shit done.

WITHIN 1 MONTH, YOU WILL:

  • Immerse yourself in every aspect of HotelTonight’s visual identity, correcting inconsistencies across our apps, websites, marketing collateral and company identity
  • Lead whiteboard sessions where you’ll brainstorm and design incredible customer experiences
  • Land a few quick wins by crafting ideas into shippable designs in rapid time, cleaning up inconsistencies along the way and making our product more holistic, complete, and refined with every project

WITHIN 3 MONTHS, YOU WILL:

  • Collaborate with our Marketing, Product, and Engineering teams as well as external agencies to improve the design of our products and create evocative advertising campaigns
  • Be a steward of our brand internally and externally
  • Develop a solid game plan that will strategically amplify our visual identity, rally the troops, and get each team behind your vision

WITHIN 12 MONTHS, YOU WILL:

  • Build a world-class design organization that is widely recognized within the design and tech community
  • Bring the HotelTonight products to iconic design status, ensuring our visual design remains a key factor in our competitive edge
  • Develop and lead a team of designers that will work across the company to elevate our brand identity and design aesthetic in everything we do

ABOUT THE TEAM:

  • You’ll report to the CEO and partner with the CTO, CMO, Chief of Data & Strategy, COO, and VPs of Product
  • Manage and mentor a small team of 4-5 marketing, product, and visual designers

WHAT YOU’LL GET FROM US

  • A highly collaborative and supportive team environment that values asking the right questions, building solutions, and respecting everyone we work with
  • An organization that embraces design, has a strong brand identity, and isn’t afraid to take risks
  • The opportunity to take something great and make it world class
  • Great SF office location at 5th and Market and a beautiful workspace 
  • Excellent health, dental, vision and 401k plans. And stock options, too
  • Fun stuff — Quarterly travel stipend, unlimited vacation, catered meals daily, a subsidized wireless plan and fitness membership, access to our very own hotel-inspired full bar, and the opportunity to spin the HT Roulette wheel to win a spontaneously weekend getaway! 

Let's get started.
