SaaS Product Designer
Are you a ‘doer’ who loves to take things all the way from early ideas through concept explorations and eventually to final UI designs?
We’re seeking a full-time, remote Product Designer who excels in taking rough ideas and transforming them into polished features and user interfaces (for our web/SaaS platform Baymard Premium).
About the Role
As a Product Designer, your primary responsibilities will be:
~70% concept explorations (incl. sketches/wireframe designs)
~30% translating those concepts into final UI designs (incl. microcopy)
You will collaborate directly with Baymard’s two founders and become a member of a small product team that includes: a team lead, a UI designer, a data scientist, a content manager, a front-end developer, and two back-end developers.
You must be excellent at:
Conceptual product and feature development (incl. sketches/wireframe designs)
Final UIs for those wireframes (incl. microcopy)
And you should be:
Self-driven with a strong bias toward action
A clear thinker and communicator
Motivated to acquire deep domain knowledge
Baymard Institute is a fully distributed, independent UX research organization of ~50 people, mostly UX analysts and researchers (use them to get rich UX feedback on your designs).
We conduct large-scale UX research studies and publish/sell the findings in our bespoke SaaS platform (see baymard.com/research). It is primarily this platform that you will be conceptualizing and designing features for.
Location: remote full-time position from either America, Europe, or Africa. (US West Coast: you will have to be available from 6am Pacific Time since the product team is mostly in Europe and we need 2 hours of daily overlap.)
Salary: in accordance with qualifications.
Start date: as soon as possible.
Language: fully proficient in written and spoken English.
Travel: limited; expect only 0-1 week of optional travel each year (in connection with the optional, company-wide meetup).
How to Apply
Describe how you fit the role and share evidence of extraordinary ability in conceptual feature development and product design (preferably 1 page, max. 3). (Required.)
2-5 examples of desktop web UIs you’ve designed (if you only have mobile design examples, do still apply with those). (Required.)
A resume (PDF) or a link to your LinkedIn profile. (Required.)
Send the above to firstname.lastname@example.org (all applications and materials are treated confidentially).
The deadline is February 20 (end of day).
Based on the applications, a few selected candidates will be assigned a paid 6-hour hiring test (remote, of course), which will be the main evaluation criterion for the position. This will also be a good way for you to get a feel for the primary task of this job.
