What You’ll Be Doing
Partner: you’ll work with product managers, developers and others throughout HotSchedules, to think through every aspect of core features, crafting solutions for the people that keep your favorite restaurants humming. The space we work in is deep, so you’ll learn and design for a wide array of customer needs, contexts and challenges.
Craft: you’ll own your projects from start to finish--initial concepts sketched out on a whiteboard with a PM through to the final pixel-level detail and everything in between, including regular user testing and feedback. We serve the people who rely on us.
Mentor: you’ll help design how our team works and proactively mentor other designers.
Grow: we’ll partner to help you move down your chosen career path. The Branching Career Path lays out how we see the possible opportunities for people on our team if you’re curious.
What We’re Looking For
- At least 5+ years of experience as a professional Product or User Experience Designer. We love hiring and mentoring people new to the field, but this role requires someone senior. See What it Means to be “Senior” to understand what we mean.
- A portfolio that showcases your UX chops and product design skills. We’re looking for product design work, not websites or marketing collateral. Please include a link with any needed passwords with your application.
- A passion for user-centered design and an understanding of how to unite user goals with those of our business.
- You enjoy helping other designers improve their work.
- Mastery of Sketch or similar design tools (we use Sketch) and experience with InVision or similar prototyping tools.
- A deep understanding of web and mobile design constraints.
- Experience implementing and improving a design system.
- Interest in user research and a desire to conduct, document and share your findings from in-context observations and user interviews.
- The ability to jump from high-level concepts into detailed design conversations, and back again.
- You are collaborative and communicative by nature. You know how to provide and receive constructive criticism.
- You have opinions, but you leave your ego at the door.
Bonus Points for Restaurant Experience
You’ve worked in restaurants or bars--double bonus points if you’ve designed apps that focus on people who work in the service industry, such as scheduling systems or Point of Sales (POS) solutions.
