Senior Product Designer

Job description

At Versett, a Sr. Product Designer takes a leading role in all stages of the product design process; from initial concept, to design and prototyping, and iterating again to ensure that everything we build is of the highest quality.  You have proven visual design skills and understand the intricacies that make for an innovative user experience that solves real problems.

Sometimes you'll be on the front-lines, working on brand-new problems and trying to figure out what to build. Other times, you'll be deep in the details of a project, working directly with our engineers and product teams to  bring the vision to life. Through collaboration, you'll inspire and mentor other designers on the team and help raise the bar on visual and user experience design.

As a champion of design and senior member of our growing team, you'll have the opportunity to make a mark and help shape the design practice for our Toronto office. You'll work closely with the Director of Design and General Manager to grow the design practice, lead workshops and help sell the value of design, both internally and externally.

Requirements

Product Designers at Versett have the following:

  • You have previous experience building and shipping high-impact digital products for consumer or commercial audiences with the portfolio to prove it.
  • You love exploring the latest and greatest in design tools while keeping emerging design patterns and visual treatments on your radar.
  • You know how to maintain, guide, and push the boundaries of design systems and patterns.
  • You possess strong strategic thinking and an understanding of the project lifecycle, necessary timelines and business challenges.
  • You can clearly communicate concepts and design rationale through sketches, wireframes, high fidelity comps, prototypes and presentations both internally and externally to clients.
  • You are a strong conceptual thinker with a demonstrated ability to understand customer needs, motivations and behaviors, and know how to translate this understanding into the project design.
  • You can work with senior team members to lead early conversations with potential clients, refining abstract concepts into designs and outputs for our team to build.
  • You have led a supporting designer and can proactively drive the design process on projects.
  • You are embedded in the design community, and have a desire to continue to give back and it's continued growth.
  • You're a team player.
