Senior Manager - Product Design (UX) at Tradesy
Senior Manager - Product Design (UX)

Design is baked into our company DNA --- one of our founders is a designer, and the other was an artist before she became an entrepreneur. We believe that great design is far more than simply a beautiful interface, but rather extends into the design of the service and the business itself. Designers at Tradesy aren't just pixel pushers--- design is an integral part of how we make product decisions. As the Senior Manager of Product Design (UX) at Tradesy, you'll lead our product design team in designing, validating, and executing on design-led solutions to complex marketplace problems.

As a hands-on manager, you’ll be deployed to one of our product teams, where you’ll work directly with product managers, designers, and engineers to design new features and products. You’ll navigate the entire product design stack from research, to interface design, to prototyping and user testing.

At the same time, you’ll focus on design leadership --- mentoring and growing members of the team, fostering a healthy culture of collaboration and feedback, and multiplying the talents of individual team members through thoughtful critiques and regular design reviews.  

The ideal candidate for this position is adept at high-level, systems thinking, both in terms of products and people, but also obsesses over the details that take a product from good, to great, to exceptional. If you care deeply about design leadership and developing talent, and are excited about the prospect of leading a team while continuing to practice your craft, then this role will be perfect for you.
You Will:
    • Focus relentlessly on solving problems for our users.   
    • Use data and research to drive your design process.Conduct user research, including regular on-site usability studies.
    • Design clear, elegant interfaces that make the complex simple.
    • Build prototypes for user studies and interaction design.
    • Mentor, guide and grow the designers on your team.
    • Foster a culture of feedback and continual improvement through design reviews and thoughtful critique.
    • Lead, protect, and continually improve the team’s design process.
    • Evangelize design across the organization
    • Lead long term strategic projects that affect multiple product teams.
You Have:
    • 5+ years of experience in design, including 3+ years of design management
    • An extensive portfolio of excellent design work, showcasing your proven track record of launching successful, polished products.
    • Profound empathy for the user of the products you design.
    • A deep understanding of design that extends beyond "how it looks".
    • A strong point of view on how to build a great design team.
    • Proven experience managing a high-functioning design team.
Bonus Points:
    • Knowledge of or interest in luxury fashion.
    • Experience working on ecommerce or marketplace products.
    • Front-end development experience. We’re a full-stack design team, so some of our product designers implement many of their own designs.
Compensation:
    • Competitive salary, commensurate with experience
    • Stock options
    • Comprehensive benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision, 401k)
    • Flexible PTO
Additional Perks:
    • Daily catered lunches
    • Dog friendly office
    • Tight knit team
