I'm looking for talented designers who can come on board and be part of something from the ground up, to build an MVP to raise or get into an accelerator.

I'm currently an EiR at a leading tech incubator in NYC, and have conducted dozens of customer interviews and user tests over the course of the last six months.

I have a basic prototype, but still have much discovery work to do, so comfort and familiarity with the full product development life cycle is preferred.

About you
You enjoy creating best in class visuals and interactions in short time frames.

You have experience with user research, design sprints and rapid prototyping and can take a product from zero to one

You are self-motivated, can operate independently but enjoy working collaboratively in a team.

You like taking ownership of the product and see design as a critical part of the overall customer experience.

You’re interested in laying a foundation at an early stage company, and enabling discovery of product market fit.

You are looking for a role where you can grow into management, will execute tactically but think strategically and get your hands dirty.

You derive excitement from delivering product into the real world, solving real problems for the end user.

Responsibilities: 
• Lead design projects across the entire product lifecycle and multiple launches, including user research, building personas, journey mapping and service design
• Work with small multi-disciplinary teams. You’ll partner closely with engineering, product, and business to find elegant but practical solutions to design challenges 
• Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes
• Conduct user research using the full tool kit of quantitative and qualitative methods, utilizing design sprints, and tests in-person and remotely
• Be autonomous and self-motivated. You’ll take full ownership of your work, and you take responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way 
• A strong appetite to learn and apply the latest design best practices

Experience
• 3+ years of experience designing consumer and mobile products 
• Had ownership of consumer products, and understand what it takes to create beautiful highly usable, consumer-oriented experiences 
• Deep expertise around mobile-first UX and interactions
• Great communication skills that help you work with product and engineering to make product visions come to life 
• Constantly looking to hone your design instinct through user feedback. Whether through hands-on user research, or by designing an A/B test 
• Familiarity with Jobs to be done and story-orientated frameworks
• Familiarity with Sketch, Moqups, Framer, InVision, proto,io or other similar tools
• Comfort using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, with react and bootstrap a bonus
• Biased toward action and execution
• You have a portfolio that you can share
