About you

You are an experienced Product Designer, both passionate and effective at problem-solving. You have vast experience in understanding what good outcomes look like and recognize how to measure them effectively.

You are objective by nature, curious, deliberate, and somebody who strives to make things better.

You've had roles in the past, which include UX/UI Designer or Product Designer. Your portfolio focuses on design for web applications and not marketing websites.

You thrive working autonomously in a fast-paced environment, in collaboration with engineers and product managers. You’re comfortable being a player-manager - able to play a ‘team lead’ role in the design team, reporting to the Principal Designer.

 

Responsibilities

  • Own the product design for the Collaboration + Workflow squad, where you will be responsible for user-driven features that help marketing teams better do their work. An example of this could be a feature that allows users to switch their calendar view to a kanban board. Or, an outcome that speeds up the user's workflow, by reducing friction in the content creation process.
  • Work in a fast-paced environment to ideate, iterate, and ship improvements and features to make a difference for our users.
  • Build a deep understanding of user behaviour so you can make autonomous decisions, backed up with data.
  • Measure releases to ensure that we have hit our goals or audit reasons why we haven't so that further iterations can occur.
  • Work closely with the engineering team and Product Manager to find solutions to both business and customer problems.
  • Optimise for simplicity, favouring common design patterns over the complex.
  • Prototype original ideas and get qualitative feedback from real users. Validate concepts and report results to the broader team.
  • Work closely with quantitative data tools to make data-informed decisions. You will be using Segment and Amplitude but will have a voice in proposing new tools to do your job more effectively.
  • Craft elegant solutions that are simple to understand and delightful to use.
  • Work with our Customer Support team to understand user needs and pain points.
  • Become an ambassador for user-experience design standards, and push design at ContentCal to the next level.
  • Help Marketing to become as knowledgeable as possible by assisting with product documentation for features you have worked on.
  • Comfortable playing a ‘team lead’ role in the Design function - managing and mentoring members of the design team, fostering team spirit, articulating our company values in the design function.
