Job Description

Senior Product Designer role

My client helps small business thrive by making parcel delivery simple, reliable and affordable. They are a B Corp and Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service, harnessing major courier networks to create a simple, user-friendly service that levels the playing field for small businesses.

They are a fast growing business with bold ambitions, a team full of passion, a team of self-confessed nerds and general geeks. Their work has an impact; by powering eCommerce logistics, their software is helping real-world businesses deliver real parcels to their customers; this is more than just records in a database.

Off the back of strong growth in Australia, they're now setting their sights on expanding into the US and more, so this is an opportunity to work in a high-growth startup with a solid foundation and be part of an amazing team.

They are looking for a smart and positive person to join as a Senior Product Designer, reporting to the Head of Product Design.

By providing timely and accurate user experience and design advice this is your chance as a designer to shape the service.

What you’ll need (Qualifications)

  • You are genuinely excited about solving real customer problems and can empathize with the user, you have an eye for detail and want to design a service that works beautifully for customers.
  • You’ll have experience iterating on a product through multiple releases and feedback, as you drive towards an overarching vision.
  • You are humble enough to listen, yet confident enough to ask questions and participate in decision making.
  • You’ll thrive in a fast-paced, changeable environment. You’ll enjoy a minimum viable process (and may have built a process), and you look for ways to improve, save time and do things smarter.
  • You’ll need to be a positive person who is diligent, has a 'never give up’ attitude and loves to focus on the detail.
