Principal Product Designer
Good Dog's product team is focused on one thing: building a better world for dogs and the people who love them. We use a deep understanding of our communities to drive innovation and design for one of life's most rewarding relationships: dog ownership.
We are looking for a Principal Product Designer to join our Experience Design team, responsible for pioneering the way people bring a puppy into their home. You'll work side-by-side with our product management, engineering, and research teams to design experiences of significant scope, complexity, and creative vision. This team is at the heart of Good Dog, leading the charge on delivering an emotionally-driven experience that informs the entire product.
We are a lean group of designers who are empowered to make impactful decisions, owning all aspects of the design process across multiple surfaces. You'll grow as our mission advances and our experiences become more sophisticated. This is an exciting opportunity to join a growth-stage organization in a category ripe with limitless possibilities.
What You’ll Do
- Own every aspect of the product design process from user research, to creating and testing prototypes, to designing user stories, all the way through to product release
- Develop a deep understanding of our users and their needs through qualitative and quantitative studies
- Partner with Product and Engineering to distill complex scopes into manageable deliverables/tasks/sequences
- Turn insights and business requirements into world-class designs
- Take part in forming our design and development processes, setting a foundation for years to come
- Incorporate feedback from our users and stakeholders across the company to quickly iterate on designs
- Balance design goals with technical limitations and business needs
- Leverage, improve, and elevate our visual language and design system
- Advocate on behalf of our user-communities and help galvanize the organization through design-forward thinking
What We’re Looking For
- You’ve had 7+ years of experience working in a product design role
- You hold a high bar for product design execution and want to continuously improve your craft
- Your solutions are elegant and intuitive while solving complex problems
- A vast array of design/creative approaches that you can apply to any sized scope
- You value and use both qualitative and quantitative inputs to inform decisions
- Able to find the balance between risk-taking, world-class design aesthetic, and velocity
- Ability to thrive while working collaboratively and independently on cross functional teams
- You love building and are motivated by the challenges of a growing startup
- You’re a collaborator who enjoys working with more than just designers
What you’ll love about working here
- You’ll be creating world class experiences that are bringing about real, positive change in the lives of both people and dogs
- Design is seen as a critical element of our success and way of operating
- You’ll work with a team of kind, passionate, incredible people who have diverse experiences from some of the top companies in the world
- You’ll be joining at an incredibly exciting time of growth and be part of building a product, team, and company from an early stage
- You’ll love our org structure that encourages designers to think holistically rather than in isolated product-specific lanes.
- Your FPO images will usually be puppies, happy families, and funny .GIFs.
- Your opinions will not only be heard, but expected. You’ll not only be included, you’ll be fundamental. Come join a growing team and help shape the future of something amazing.
