Senior Product Designer CDI

Algolia is looking for a passionate and empathetic Senior Product Designer. As a senior member of the team, you will contribute to some of our trickiest and complex projects and be involved in the entire product development process, from early research and ideation to tweaking pixels up to shipping and post-launch.

You are a systems thinker. You can identify problems and opportunities, and frame them in a way that guides your squad to delivering impactful work. You contribute every step of the way, ensuring that the vision you’ve outlined is the right fit for the business and the users’ needs. You effectively collaborate cross-functionally to develop a vision and drive project to completion. You’re motivated by goals and outcomes, staying focused on the big picture while giving care to the details when necessary. You iterate quickly, utilize data, and user research to ensure you’re on the right path to your goal. You know the work is never done, and have a good sense for when to ship and when to continue exploring.

You champion design thinking within your squad, the design team and within the broader organization. You work humbly and kindly, aren’t afraid to make mistakes, to admit failure, and to learn from it. You’re always looking to improve yourself and to lift up others around you.'

Responsibilities
    • Design simple, data and research-based flows and experiences that delight our users
    • Partner with PMs, engineers, other designers and stakeholders across the company to deliver products and features from conception to launch

    • Refine our processes and help define best practices for design at Algolia
    • Write about, present, and share what you have learned, both internally and with the wider community via our blog and events
Requirements
    • 6+ years product design experience (preferably some being in-house)
    • Experience designing and shipping digital products (not just websites)
    • An online portfolio demonstrating a generalist design skill set, with a deeper focus on UX, design thinking and systems
    • Self-awareness and ability to collaborate cross-functionally
    • An appreciation for the entire product development cycle: problem definition, ideation, solution design, validation and iteration
    • Excellent communicator of design work and your rationale behind proposals
    • Excellent written and spoken English communication skills
Bonus Points
    • Past work on highly technical enterprise products aimed at technical people
    • Experience conducting user research
    • Passion for Algolia’s mission and interest in working in a dynamic, international context
