Falcon.io Senior Product Designer

Sofia, Bulgaria 2 weeks ago
Do you want to work in a design team that is constantly evolving? Do you have an open personality that enjoys being part of a team where discussions take place, where people challenge and support each other while learning together on a daily basis? Do you see the devil in the details, but also understand the bigger picture?

A broad skill set and a curious mind

As a product designer at Falcon.io, you will get the design responsibility for one of our products. This means you will need to have a broad skill set and a diverse interest in all aspects of the design process. From the initial user research and prototyping to stakeholder validation and doing the final designs using our shared design system. It also means that you thrive on your 'final designs' being just the first step in an iterative process towards customer validation.

Still with me? Great! Then you might be the person we are looking for. Let's get a bit more specific and find out.

Day-to-day, you will be working closely with a PM and a team of engineers in one of our agile product teams. All teams share the mission of building a world-class platform that solves the human problems of our users. This shared mission creates a great environment for all of us to learn and evolve together.

The design team

Besides being embedded in a product team, you will also be an important part of our overall design team. The team collaborates across offices, does regular design critiques, design sprints, and always seeks to evolve our ways of collaboration.

We travel to conferences together and are involved with various events for the design community. We host design meetups from Dribbble to UX writing and have screened design movies from InVision and Stefan Sagmeister.

Unicorns exist - just like Santa ;-)

Product Designers at Falcon.io have a broad design interest and skill set. However, we all have different spikes in competencies, so while we are looking for a person with a broad design profile, we don't expect you to be an expert in all areas.

No individual person can be an all-areas expert so our focus is on building and maintaining a strong, united design team which, as a whole, covers all grounds as a unicorn team. This approach ensures realistic expectations for all individual team members and provides a development framework in which each person can continuously advance on all accounts.
