The Challenge 🧩

We are looking for an experienced product designer to be a strategic partner for our technology and product teams. This role will work on critical strategic initiatives to improve the experience of buyers and sellers in the marketplace and foster conscious consumption.

You thrive in team settings and are aligned with our vision: We believe in an alternative way of consuming. And what we do every day is focused on creating the most powerful, easy, and best tool for real people to buy and sell second-hand stuff.

What You Will Do👇

  • Partner with cross-functional leads (Product Managers, UX Research, Analysts, business and operations roles...), to scope and define design initiatives for a given product area in line with business goals.
  • Participate in the work planning for digital products and services in collaboration with design managers and cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Leverage sets of quantitative and qualitative data to communicate actionable insights to address user and business challenges and propose design solutions.
  • Lead and execute medium to complex design projects from interaction concepts to the smallest details across all platforms. Own the end-to-end design process from the very early research to the beautiful final UI and specs. Work across the entire product lifecycle and multiple product launches.
  • Communicate design thinking process and propose design solution in an articulate way
  • Collaborate with the design team on global execution, guidelines, and approvals. Contribute to the creation of a consistent experience for Wallapop users.
  • Guide other designers or product roles in developing knowledge and skills to improve collaboration.
  • Help define and develop best UX practice standards.

What We’re Looking For 🔍

  • You have a long term track of experience designing digital products, in particular but not exclusively, for mobile devices.
  • Experience in interaction design methods such as wireframing, concept models, scenarios and user flows. Can communicate vision and ideas with different artifacts.
  • Expert level in Figma, our product design tool of choice. Experience with other product design tools like Sketch, Invision, Zeplin or the Adobe suite is a nice to have. Prototyping experience in Marvel, Principle or Origami is a plus.
  • You have “user-centric / people-focused” mind. You always try to hone your amazing ideas through users real feedback. Whether through hands-on user research or by working on different options for an A/B test.
  • You have experience contributing as a core designer on teams working on user-centred experiences, products, and services
  • You have experience applying design thinking in an agile environment
  • You are an excellent team player and a great communicator. You feel comfortable interacting with everyone. Even users. You love your users. You bring them into your office to let them tell you that your design doesn’t work.
  • Fluent in Spanish and English. Other languages a plus.

What Would Be A Plus

  • Detail oriented: you obsess over perfect margins and harmony between elements on a device screen.
  • Experience in marketplace/e-commerce product design end-to-end cycle.
  • You have served as a mentor in an area of expertise to junior or mid-designers.
