Product Designer

About this role

This is a remote role — NEXT is a 100% remote company.
As Product Designer you’ll lead the core UX and UI of NEXT. You're tasked to elevate the existing user patterns and flows, as well as creating new ones as we develop and evolve the product.
You will work closely with Customer Success, Growth, and Product Management, and Engineering to identify and solve user pain points, as well as find new opportunities to create delightful interactions that will make users feel empowered and successful in using NEXT.
This role requires a solid level of interaction, user experience (UX), and visual design (UI) skills to lead and shape our product at a fast-moving pace whilst maintaining a high bar of product quality.
You'll participate in all steps of the value creation process: observing users and usages, defining problems and points of friction, exploring the potential solutions, testing both assumptions and hypothesis, then launching it, followed by measuring success.
You’ll be able to uplift the experience of top-notch companies in the world. We put significant efforts to make complicated things clear, easy to understand, and use, aiming to create the best possible user experience for NEXT users.

Collaborate with engineers to reach high-quality, delightful and bug-free products
Measure the success of your decisions with the team and iterate when needed

3+ years of product design experience in an individual contributor role
Ambition to lead design for a product

Work with some of the most recognized companies and brands in the world and profoundly impact the way product teams research user needs
Shape the design (UX & UI) of the product for the year to come
