We’re looking for an exceptional Product Designer Manager to join our Player Experience team and lead the design efforts of a small team of product designers to create a new industry standard for competitive mobile gaming experiences.

Your passion for design leads you to creating fresh new concepts that can change an industry. You take initiative, you find solutions to obvious and hidden problems without being asked.

* Lead and mentor a team of product designers creating competitive mobile gaming experiences on both iOS and Android
* Partner closely with Product Management, Engineering, and other cross functional teams to deliver amazing and effective work
* Collaborate with Design and Skillz leadership to determine our overall player experience design direction
* Own the design efforts for and bring clarity to large and ambiguous product experiences
* Contribute to iterating on our product experiences through user research
* Drive design thinking within the larger Product Design organization and encourage various design focused problem-solving methodologies

Your Skillz:

* 5+ years of professional experience as a UX or Product Designer.
* You have successfully managed or led a team of designers for 2+ years.
* Mobile design experience for iOS and Android
* Portfolio that showcases sound product thinking and design rationale through navigation, user flows, interaction design, and information architecture
* Portfolio that demonstrates strong understanding of how users engage with the aesthetics of a product through the use of typography, color, imagery, layout, and grid systems
* Ability to manage deadlines and collaborate in a cross functional environment
* Capable of supporting your designs with strong rationale, research, and effective communication
* Experienced in using various design software including Sketch, Invision, and Adobe CS
* Experience with motion design and animation is a plus
