We're looking for a talented Product Designer to help us establish our design team from the ground floor. As the first product design hire, you’ll work closely with the VP of Product and begin to establish the design culture, processes, and ecosystem. You’ll be responsible for the end-to-end product design process, helping the company actualize the vision in every step of the product discovery and development process.

EmployStream desires to become a design-led company and an empowering place for designers to work.

What will I be doing?
• Partner with Product and Engineering to drive the design process from product strategy to execution.
• Broadly deliver across all areas of product design while owning the success and failure of design work.
• Work through design problems from beginning to end while deciding the best approach, tools, and techniques for each project, e.g.:
• User research
• Comparative analysis
• Journey mapping
• Ideation
• Concepting
• Cross-functional design techniques (e.g., Design Charrettes)
• Sketching
• Wireframing
• Creating Hi-Fis
• Prototyping
• Assessing viability of designs (e.g., feasibility, usability testing, etc.)
• Establishing a design system
• Continuously iterate and improve the overall UI/UX of the product.
• Be a vocal leader in the company for design-thinking and user-centered design.


What experience do I need to have?
• Experience designing substantial digital products, not just websites, graphics, illustrations, or print. A background in designing mobile apps or mobile-responsive web apps is preferred
• Experience or familiarity with front-end development (HTML, CSS, JS, etc.) and/or a desire to become a full-stack designer.
• An appreciation and understanding of modern design and product development processes (e.g., Lean UX, cross-functional teams, etc.)
• Ability to design toward goals and objectives that will drive the business and product forward (i.e., go beyond surface-level design aesthetics).
• Experience and a desire to dig deep with a broad group of stakeholders, engineers, customers, and end-users to identify and design innovative product enhancements.
• We’re looking for candidates with portfolios that show an ability to create beautiful, hi-fidelity prototypes alongside details of the underlying design process and any achieved outcomes.


EmployStream is a great place to work. You’ll be taken care of with the following benefits:
• Competitive salary and equity
• PPO, HSA, and Life Insurance options
• 401k plan
• Open vacation policy
• Nutritious, catered lunches twice a week
• Flexible schedule and opportunity to work remote as needed
• Access to a fitness facility in the office building
• Equipment and tools for you to do your job (Macbooks are standard)

We are a startup and we take that seriously. It’s going to take a lot of hard work to accomplish our goals. At EmployStream, we believe in having fun along the way. We regularly have impromptu outings for happy hours, sporting events, game nights, etc., and we try to keep the office environment light and engaging.
