You’re motivated by goals and outcomes, staying focused on the big picture while giving care to the details when necessary. You iterate quickly and utilize data and user research to ensure you’re on the right path toward your goal.

  • Own the success or failure of your design work: validate your designs and initiate improvements
  • Constantly seek and respectfully provide design feedback
  • Help refine our processes and define best practices for design at Spendesk

Must have's:

  • 4+ years of Product Design experience
  • A well-rounded design skill set (including product thinking, UX, UI)

  • An appreciation for the entire product development cycle: research, problem definition, ideation, solution design, validation, and iteration
  • Strong communicator of design work and your rationale behind proposals
  • A mindset focused on learning and professional growth
  • Spoken and written English skills required

Nice to have:
