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 beautiful environment with sweeping city views, where they create sites + tools for the savvy shopper and the people who power the fashion industry. This is the time when new products and new ideas about the future of shopping are being dreamed up, designed and launched, and the 8-person design team there are stalwarts - the turnover there is very low, and people are very loyal to the brand and the relaxed workstyle there.
They're seeking a fulltime, seasoned Senior Product Designer - can be either UX or Visual leaning - who can own projects from soup to nuts, interface and form solid relationships with a variety of stakeholders across Product, Dev, Merchandising, etc - and who can mentor others in a close-knit design community. Their design leader has recently stepped up into the #1 spot and she's a longtime and respected presence there.
Oh, and did we mention some pretty killer fashion discounts, unlimited PTO, and a great work/life balance? And that's not just lip service - it's the darn tootin' truth and a major selling point for lots of folks!
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. They also are dreaming up the future of store design, in this ever-changing world of commerce, so they want someone who will fearlessly bring their ideas to the table, and know which ones to push for, and which ones to let go of.
You've probably got 5-7+ years of experience, but it's less about the time in the industry vs what you've accomplished and what you've produced and led in the world. If you've got fashion and/or ecommerce + retail in your background, great, but any large platform or complex product work can 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 across a variety of platforms.
If you've got a User Research background and want to pitch in there, great! They also have their own Research team that you can work through to run your own research sessions and tests, and if you'd like to sit in on sessions or help design them, all good, but not required.
