Appcast Lead UX Designer

Boston, MA 2 weeks ago
Full-time
Appcast is one of the fastest growing technology companies in New England, and our programmatic recruitment marketing suite is transforming how leading employers, ad agencies and job boards find and attract talent.
In 5 short years, the programmatic job advertising market has grown from zero to $500M. The market is rapidly moving from early adopters to 'early majority'.  The solutions that these new buyers will need are not the same as what exists today. 

We're looking for a talented UX designer to help us ensure Appcast earns (more than) its fair share of this new business.

Today, our solutions are built for enterprise. They're high touch, high service. To grow from 1,000 to 100,000 clients, we need to develop solutions that self-provision, and are dead simple to use. You are a critical part of this transformation.

Should you join us, we will place in your hands all the responsibility you can handle and let you run with it. We're thinking big.

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING
 
  • Get to know your customers - visit them, study the analytics, conduct any research you think necessary, and bring it all back to the team
  • Form & work with your team - you'll partner with account managers (the best research assistants you'll ever have), product managers, and our fantastic development team
  • Create useful, usable, and delightful experiences that let people harness the power of our platform without help from our service teams
  • Understand what's working & not working (see bullet #1)

You'll bring the process & tools that work for you.

OUR PRODUCT CULTURE

Product drives process, not the other way around. We don't value perfect Agile. Creating elaborate deliverables is not the job. Shipping great products to our customers is everything.
 
We believe that good tactics lead to good strategy. Yes, you will need to have the ideas, but then you should have the ability to describe the discrete, actionable steps required to get from point A to point Z. We want client feedback after point A. 
 
We're a team and we all succeed together. The weight of your 'voice' is not in how loud you speak but in the leadership you showed on the last release. We're the kind of people who call attention to our own missteps and give credit exactly where it's due.
 
We all hop into the trenches. We understand and empathize with how our actions affect customers - from great new features to nasty bugs - and through grit, persistence & integrity, we make it right.
 
DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS
 
3+ years experience in a B2B UX role
 
PAY & BENEFITS
 
Appcast pays well and offers an exceptional, all-inclusive benefits package. We also are focused on being a place where smart, driven people want to come to work.
