CareGuide is one of Canada’s fastest growing startups. We make it easier for families and individuals to find care for their loved ones through a portfolio of specialized marketplaces, including Nanny Lane.

Nanny Lane is the best of both worlds: perks of a larger company, and the autonomy & agility of an early stage startup. Our Nanny Lane team is a tight-knit group dedicated to making childcare more accessible through nanny share. We are passionate collaborators who value working together and take pride in the experiences we create.

Our CareGuide team is a friendly bunch who are continually looking to improve and build each other up while creating something big. Our Friday catered lunches, regular lunch & learns, monthly town halls, and weekly 1:1s are some of the staples to CareGuide. We succeed and fail together - we are seriously committed to your growth and making CareGuide the best place to grow your career.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Nanny Lane is looking for a Product Designer who is excited to be a part of building the future of child care. You will be working with our product manager to design highly impactful and innovative solutions to the problems that our users experience. We provide value first to our customers because having a product that enables users to be successful is what makes the Nanny Lane successful. We are a small team of less than ten, and you will own every stage of our design process at a time when our principles of excellent design are just emerging.

Work-Life Balance. We have high expectations and admire strong work ethic; however, what is more, important is a balance for your personal life. So, we strive to work smarter, not longer. You choose what hours and timing suits your lifestyle (within reason), and we will do our best to accommodate

Autonomy. We always do the best we can with any ambitious problems we're solving. Feedback is encouraged and welcomed to help everyone improve their crafts.

Exponential career trajectory. “Careers not jobs” is a central value at CareGuide, and on Nanny Lane, we are all tackling new challenges every day, enabling us to grow and develop continuously.

Collaboration. We work closely with multiple functions including marketing, product management & operations. It's essential to have excellent communication skills - listen first, share knowledge second.

ABOUT CAREGUIDE

If you work on a side project, volunteer your time or practice another craft besides designing beautiful, user-centered experiences, that means something to us, and we would love to hear about it!
