A heritage, luxury fashion brand marries an Agile, innovative fashion startup with major caché, and they have a lovechild.
The lovechild looks like this: a passionate, startuppy environment with sweeping city views, where a slew of new products are being dreamed up, designed and launched.....the opportunity to receive close mentorship from a fabulous + respected design leader (who's an experimental artist on the side - they encourage your "passion projects" too!)....deep fashion discounts....unlimited PTO.
The head of the design department - their fearless leader - speaks softly and thoughtfully, inspires loyalty and passion in his team to a degree unparalleled in our industry, and is an inspiring designer himself who you'd learn a lot from under his mentorship. Your teammates on their ~10 person design team are down to earth, friendly, and similarly passionate.
And, if you're a product designer who's also an artist on the side, or up to other cool side projects in life, all the better! There's a culture here of hiring multi-faceted, interesting, passionate-about-life-and-art people, and you're encouraged to live your passions.
You, the entrepreneurial designer that you are, can really take ownership of things and make your mark: they're in a phase of transforming their properties' websites onto a new platform, so there's a lot of wide, open space to design for whole slew of responsive sites, web apps and new digital products, as well as native mobile apps.
You have a good mix of VIsual UI + UX in your background, with 4-7 or more years of experience. If you've got fashion and/or ecommerce + retail in your background, great, but any large platform or complex product work could fit the bill. What's important is your product design thinking and hands-on design handiwork, and ability to think through and execute complex design challenges.
You'll be joining a team of ~10 other designers, and work extremely collaboratively with each other in a non-hierarchical meritocracy, as well as with the in-house Dev + Product Management teams with whom design enjoys a super close and trusting relationship, in a highly Agile fashion. You can dive right on it, take ownership of things, and be able to make a great impact on their brands, and therefore, on the fashion industry as a whole. Pretty cool, huh?
