Product Designer

Why Are We Hiring?

Our team is hiring a Product Designer (UX/UI). We'd like you to join our team to work on a mix of projects for founders, fast growing startups, and enterprise companies.

More About The Role

As a Product Designer at Lightmatter, you'll work within our creative team and alongside our engineers to design web and mobile software applications for a variety of businesses in health & wellness, healthcare IT, non-profits, and more.

Joining our team guarantees exposure to a range of creative projects including product, UX, UI, branding, marketing collateral, print design, and more. Our team works hard to bring in diverse and exciting projects. We encourage close collaboration and pairing between design and engineering teams.

Responsibilities You Will Be Tasked With

  • User research and competitive analysis.
  • Define user stories and personas.
  • Create site maps, low fidelity wireframes, prototypes, and high fidelity UI designs.
  • Collaborate with engineers to understand the complexity and implications of design decisions.
  • Pair with engineers to deliver pixel-perfect designs.

Specific Qualifications

Ideally, you have experience with the following:

  • 5+ years working as a Product or UX/UI Designer at another agency, product-focused startup, or enterprise company, and a portfolio that shows your strengths.
  • Strong knowledge of design tools: Sketch, Figma, InVision, Zeplin, Adobe, and others. You can quickly work within and between these tools.
  • You've freelanced independently, whether as a side hustle or full time. Almost everyone on our team has been a freelancer at one point and understands the value of all the “work” outside of the actual deliverable for the client: excellent communication, professionalism, punctuality, and follow through.
  • Understand that companies of different sizes, industries, and markets have different design needs. You’re aware of what a founder needs to launch an MVP, what a fast growing startup needs to extend their digital marketing and product footprint, and what an enterprise company needs as they consolidate their brand and move upmarket.
  • Comfortable designing quality UX and UI from scratch, as well as inheriting designs from others and continuing their work.
  • Know the difference between design systems, style guides, and how design should disseminate across an organization of different sizes and the vocabulary to use with each.
  • No ego with regards to your designs. You take team and client feedback in stride and can articulate constructive responses. You're comfortable designing something the client may want even if it's not exactly how you envisioned it at first.
  • Excited to collaborate on a team and help others create designs alongside you.

Our company does not offer equity as we’re not a venture backed startup. However, there’s the possibility in the future of profit sharing for our employees split at year’s end based on tenure.
