Alchemy (a P&G Company) Product Designer (UX Specialist)

Full-time Relocation help
If you love championing the needs of our consumers and evangelizing the right product experience, we are looking for you! We're passionate and collaborative, and we have talented teammates who help each other grow.
Designers at Alchemy work closely with our product managers and engineers to create product experiences, starting from conception through launch. As part of the Design team, you will advocate for the users and guide business goals to meet user needs, getting the opportunity to design products that our consumers love. You will be responsible for designing and executing against best-in-class product roadmaps that advance Procter & Gamble’s mission.

One of the many reasons Alchemy brings innovative, world-changing products to life within Procter & Gamble is because of the collaborative work we do in Design. We're responsible for leading product design, helping product teams understand their users, doing research and discovery, iterating through design and tailoring our solutions to the markets where Procter & Gamble does business.

Description:
This role requires someone who thinks at a high level — who can start from understanding users and bringing that into the product team. You’ll be digging into the “how,” the “why” and the “what.” You’re someone who enjoys starting with hand sketches and low-fidelity design while collaborating with UI to work towards the final design. You love conducting user interviews, user testing, research, and helping to ensure that usability doesn’t deviate through execution. You have experience in creating journey maps, user flows, wireframes and helping always bring the team back to the problem we’re solving and who we’re solving it for. 

You’ll work with Alchemy engineers, product managers and stakeholders to build product experiences, and spearhead the user research and design early in the process. The successful candidate must have exceptional problem solving and design thinking skills, strong ability to advocate for users through design, and collaborating with technology teams. We are looking for a proven ability to think through every phase of design and someone who is excited to take on new products that will be industry defining.

Because of the close relationship with your peers, engineers, product managers, and stakeholders, this is not a remote job.

Responsibilities:
  • Tirelessly champion the needs of our consumers
  • Be responsible for user research, discovery and consumer testing
  • Keep up to date and adhere to the latest UX best practices, strategies, technologies and industry changes
  • Evangelize the product experience and help bring in cross-functional team members into design and sharing user insights
  • Move quickly and with agility
  • Be an active participant in, and champion of, Alchemy’s culture within Procter & Gamble
  • Manage and collaborate on the entire product design cycle from initial research through design and implementation
  • Analyze consumer research to develop key brand insights

What We Look For:
  • Experienced in UX and research for native applications (iOS, Android)
  • Strong communication skills, including the ability to effectively communicate the value of UX, with internal teams and external stakeholders or clients
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment where continuous innovation is desired
  • Ability to self-manage day-to-day design responsibilities
  • Familiarity with tools such as (but not limited to) Whimsical, Sketch, InVision, Abstract, usertesting.com, Usability Hub, Maze, CrazyEgg, Firebase and Google Analytics
  • Experience in design thinking and utilizing best design practices in your work
  • History of teamwork and willingness to roll up one’s sleeves to get the job done
  • A strong digital communicator who can work well with remote teammates
  • Bonus if you’ve worked in or have an interest in the IoT space

What we offer you:
  • Continuous collaboration, coaching & mentorship – We are passionate about our work and about working with best in class teammates. Our design team is constantly working together to share design knowledge, advance our design practices and help each other grow
  • Dynamic and respectful work environment – We value every individual and encourage initiatives promoting agility and work/life balance
  • Challenging problems that will revolutionize consumer packaged goods industry
  • A company that’s a recognized global brand leader
  • Opportunity for you to have a direct impact on millions of consumers worldwide
