Responsibilities & Requirements

As a Product Design Lead on a small team, you’ll be responsible for core aspects of the Mobilize product experience and have significant influence over Mobilize’s supporter facing brand and visual identity. You’ll be responsible for turning complex flows into simple, intuitive digital experiences that will delight and motivate mission-driven volunteers and organizers.

What You'll Do:

  • Be Involved at every step in the product development process –– working closely with product managers, engineers, customer success, and other designers to design and build great products that help campaigns, advocacy groups, and non-profits mobilize volunteers
  • Develop deep empathy for both organizers and supporters, learn about their workflows and needs, and design ways to help them achieve their goals
  • Use product intuition, data, and user research to improve and iterate on existing product surfaces, design scrappy growth experiments, and develop greenfield new product experiencesB
  • Manage, coach, and lead other designers.
  • Be a good collaborative design partner to the engineering team, who will need your guidance and feedback to implement your designs

  • Influence the look and feel of the Mobilize brand as applied to the product as well as to our social properties, marketing materials, and sales collateral

Requirements:

  • You care deeply about empowering ordinary people for progressive causes. We’re a mission-driven company, and everything we do is guided by impact. At the end of the day, we’re here to make a difference.

  • You have led teams or managed other UX practioners.
  • You likely have 6+ years of professional work experience, and ideally experience working with consumer-facing products. Note: this is not a requirement, it’s intended to give a rough expectation
  • You’re able to think about systems as a whole and design the user’s experience as they move across channels from online (web, email, SMS) to offline, and back again.
  • You’re able to work with a diverse toolkit, letting you move easily from writing, hand sketching, and quick whiteboarding to in-browser tools, CSS, Figma, and prototypes
  • You have a passion for inclusive and accessible design and stay on top of best practices
  • You’re self-motivated and willing to share responsibility for your team’s success and progress
  • You take initiative to raise and solve problems to make the team stronger going forward
