Staff Product Designer, Growth & Monetization (Hybrid)
Hi, Future Homie!
As a Homie, you'll be part of an unstoppable team that puts customers first, embraces each day with excitement, and strives for excellence in everything you do. We’re revolutionizing the way small businesses manage their teams and grow their business. What this means for you is a shared passion for innovation and making a difference for the people we serve. So what do you say, will you join us on our mission to empower small businesses?
Why We Need You
We are looking for a skilled and mission-driven Product Designer who wants to make a difference in the lives of the small business owners and employees we serve. You’ll report to our Senior Director of Product Design and be an integral part of growing our design culture and practice at Homebase. You’ll partner with engineers, product managers, and other designers to shape the Homebase roadmap and deliver meaningful outcomes for our customers.
You’ll look proactively across our different product areas to define how our offerings work together from a pixel perspective and through a workflow, information architecture, and interaction design lens.
You’ll take a leadership role in design critique and help create the long-term vision for the Homebase Design Team, influencing your colleagues through qualitative and quantitative data as well as generally-accepted best practices.
The ideal candidate has a background in designing for growth and monetization in SaaS products while maintaining a strong user-centered approach. When we design for our customer’s goals, motivations, and behaviors, we will increase our user base and help customers feel good about upgrading in our freemium model.
