Elias Sports Bureau Product Designer

remote 1 week ago
Full-time
This role is all about learning, growth, and designing a fan-first sports betting experience.
As Product Designer on the Elias Game Plan app team, you will design and launch mobile feature experiments that help establish product-market fit. You will be supported by a passionate team of product, marketing, and sports research veterans. Together we strive to set the bar for fan-first sports betting experiences—just like we set the bar for sports statistics and record-keeping way back in 1913!

The Product Designer role reports directly to the Head of Product, who provides strategic direction, career guidance, and product mentorship. Day-to-day, you will work most closely with the Elias Game Plan app Product Manager and scrum team engineers to solve user problems. You will also collaborate with the Lead Product Designer to help define the user experience vision and design principles for an organization that is new to the design discipline.

Over the first year, you can expect to:
  • Design and launch many mobile app feature experiments to help establish product-market fit
  • Conduct user research with sports fans to identify problems and opportunities across sports betting experiences
  • Share user research to promote understanding of, and empathy for, the sports fans we're serving
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to gather actionable feedback, and build an understanding of the user-centered design process

Past experience we're looking for:

  • You have designed consumer-facing mobile experiences, from high-level flow diagrams to hi-fi prototypes with micro-interactions—in a way that solved user problems and achieved business goals
  • You have collaborated with product managers and engineers to launch and iterate on feature experiments, that prioritize gathering user learnings and time to market
  • You have created user journeys and personas to identify and articulate user problems and goals
  • You have run design reviews where stakeholders and cross-functional teammates understood the user goals and were able to provide actionable feedback regarding the proposed solutions
  • You have run usability tests to identify issues with a design solution

Nice to have, but not required:

  • You’re a sports fan!
  • You have conducted user interviews
  • You have designed data visualizations
  • You have created visual assets that support marketing promotion of mobile products
  • You have worked with business stakeholders to design presentations for internal communication and sales collateral
You’ll succeed in this role if:
  • You fall in love with user problems, not your solutions
  • You love the scientific method and apply it to feature design
  • You take initiative and pursue opportunities you identify
  • You love getting people excited about helping a user and rallying the team around a great product vision
  • You quickly adapt to shifts in priorities when the reasoning and strategy is clear
  • You actively listen and seek to understand teammates’ perspectives
  • You love sharing your personal learning and growth experiences with teammates to promote a culture of learning
  • You love helping people, especially users and teammates
