BookBub

Senior Product Designer (Mobile + Web) at BookBub

Cambridge · Full Time

BookBub is one of the fastest growing consumer tech startups in Boston. Millions of readers use BookBub every day to find great books, and our service helps thousands of leading publishers and authors drive sales and find new fans. Connecting readers with great deals on ebooks is just the beginning for BookBub. We're growing our team to launch new consumer-facing book discovery features, tools for authors and publishers, and other web and mobile products that address the digital transition of the publishing industry.

Job Description

As a consumer business, product design is critical to our success. We are looking for a person who has the eye, experience, and intuition to help us create amazing new products. You will work closely with our founders, visual designers, product managers and engineers to continuously build and test new products and features.

Is This You?

You have a strong desire to build engaging experiences that impact millions of users. You’re probably an expert in Balsamiq, Adobe CS, or some other tools for rapidly building mockups and wireframes. You may or may not have a classic art school background, but after several years of experience building web applications and/or mobile apps, you have developed a deep understanding of UX standards and triggers, consumer behavior instincts, and an eye for simple yet effective designs that reduce complex usability issues into simple interfaces.

A Few Key Requirements

- 2-7+ years focused on user experience on complex mobile or web products (not just static websites)

- 2+ years working on a small team in an iterative environment

Bonus Points

- We really love people who’ve worked at consumer technology companies

- Experience mentoring other UX teammates
