Full Time

NextRequest is hiring a mid-level Product Designer! This is an incredible opportunity to join a growing organization and get in on the ground floor of a new design team. You would be a second designer working closely with our Senior Product Designer to not only own the design process for full feature sets, but also contribute to a new design system, design brand materials, and help iterate and improve our design process.

You'd be a good fit if you have:

  • 2-3 years experience designing and delivering user-centered experiences in collaboration with engineers
  • Demonstrated experience leading end to end product design decisions from early concept to product launch 
  • Visual Design skills with proficiency in typography, desktop/mobile UI, color, layout, iconography and aesthetic sense and how these elements impact product function
  • Deep empathy with an understanding of user needs and passion for designing beautiful, functional software products
  • Deep understanding of how to prototype at the appropriate degrees of fidelity to solicit clear customer feedback
  • Experience using a breadth of design tools like Sketch, Zeplin, Figma, etc. or willingness to learn quickly

Extra points if you have:

  • Graphic/illustration experience (for example creating on-brand illustrative empty states and/or helping establish our brand materials)  
  • Experience working within an enterprise software and/or government product space 

What you’ll do:

  • Own multiple projects from start to finish while effectively managing timelines and expectations
  • Lead all aspects of the design process to frame problems, research use cases and users, define insights, share your vision, prototype, and document for engineer collaboration
  • Partner with product managers, engineers, and leadership to craft useful, delightful product experiences that solve user pain, drive product growth, and meet measurable outcomes
  • Develop and present high-level research, journey-maps, user-flows, mockups, and/or prototypes to effectively communicate ideas
  • Ability to conduct user research and translate insights from customer interviews, usability tests and site metrics into actionable design solutions in collaboration with senior designers
  • Track product usage data and metrics to validate designed solutions post-launch and work with product managers to organize and prioritize iterative solutions

What we offer you:

  • Mission-driven work that has a tangible positive impact
  • Three weeks of PTO plus federal holidays
  • Health care (medical, dental, and vision) benefits for you and your dependents
  • Flexible work hours (upon mutual agreement) that allow you to schedule around personal commitments
  • Opportunities to socialize with your colleagues that don’t center on alcohol (team-activities, game nights, etc); if a company event is outside of normal work hours, we’ll cover childcare costs
  • A workplace that values communication, mutual respect, and work-life balance
  • The ability to work remotely in the US. We do have offices in Durham, NC and San Diego, CA that one is able to work out if they prefer.

Compensation:

  • $70,000-$90,000 salary

We’re committed to a workplace that reflects our community. We especially encourage applicants who are underrepresented in the tech industry, including women, people of color, and LGBTQIA candidates, to apply.

PLEASE NOTE: NextRequest is unable to sponsor visas at this time. You must be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident authorized to work in the US.
