We’re looking for an experienced part-time Product Designer who can help us scale our UI/UX product design efforts for Leland. We’re big believers in the power of simple and intuitive product design, and are looking for a partner to help us create the future of Leland.

If you are someone who is passionate about helping others reach their educational/career goals, and are interested in designing an early-stage, high-growth marketplace product, we’d love to chat.

Responsibilities

  • Partner with product managers, engineers, and our community team to design intuitive user flows

  • Partner with Product Managers in conducting user interviews and testing prototypes to inform design decisions

  • Contribute to the company and product style guide

  • Design end-to-end flows and experiences that are simple, intuitive, and elegant

  • Create user flows, wireframes, low-fidelity prototypes, and high-fidelity mock-ups

  • Clearly communicate your design decisions and the thinking behind them to the team and other stakeholders

Qualifications

  • 3-5 years of experience in all phases of the design process including user research, copywriting, wire-framing, prototyping, visual design, interaction design, and usability testing

  • Experience with modern design tools (primarily Figma)

  • An intuitive eye for customer needs beyond the obvious

  • Experience moving quickly with limited resources and information

  • Experience designing mobile-responsive web applications

  • Experience managing a design system with reusable/scalable components

  • Strong communication skills and an ability to collaborate effectively with cross-functional partners

  • A scrappy and curious executor who is biased towards action  

  • You’re excited about a hybrid working model, and ready to collaborate with a distributed team (we’re in the Bay Area, Utah, and Los Angeles)
