We’re a team of logistics experts and technical product people building a suite of digital tools to make it easier to co-ordinate and fulfill shipments of unusual, oversized or high-value items. We aim to bring an elevated customer experience to the world of high end e-commerce.

We are a small, curious and resourceful team dedicated to making a big difference in a complex industry. Every obstacle is seen as an opportunity for creative problem solving. We take collective responsibility for designing the best solutions for our users, whether they be our internal operations team, our merchants & customers or our logistics partners.

We are looking for a seasoned Product Designer with strong visual skills to join our growing team in New York.

The role:

This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing company as the first Senior Product Design hire under our Director of Product Design and claim a stake in building a platform and brand from the ground up. You will play an instrumental role supporting your teammates in designing and shipping a new suite of logistics tools and services. There is also room to develop the direction of our new brand through designing online and offline marketing material geared towards our customers in the fine art, designer goods and high-end commerce worlds.

You have the wisdom (and courtesy) to recognize when you should be listening and absorbing information vs when you should be speaking up. You’ll have opinions and want to input on product strategy and team growth.

For success in this role, you’ll have:

Experience working in an agile environment with engineering/product development teams.

A knack for systems thinking and data organization

An appetite for instilling good processes and practices

A strong grasp of best UX practices, a customer centric mindset and experience in coordinating, conducting and synthesizing user research
