Hi, Future Homie!

As a Homie, you'll be part of an unstoppable team that puts customers first, embraces each day with excitement, and strives for excellence in everything you do. We’re revolutionizing the way small businesses manage their teams and grow their business. What this means for you is a shared passion for innovation and making a difference for the people we serve. So what do you say, will you join us on our mission to empower small businesses?

Why We Need You

We are looking for a skilled and mission-driven Product Designer who wants to make a difference in the lives of the small business owners and employees we serve. You’ll report to our Senior Director of Product Design and be an integral part of growing our design culture and practice at Homebase. You’ll partner with engineers, product managers, and other designers to shape the Homebase roadmap and deliver meaningful outcomes for our customers.

You have a strong understanding of information architecture and designing for context across devices and channels. You thrive on breaking down complexity into workflows that feel simple, knowing that our users don’t have time to read long manuals. You are a systems thinker who brings your knowledge of people and technology together, and you understand how to articulate a long-term vision and iterate towards it.

You’ll look proactively across our different product areas to define how our offerings work together from a workflow, information architecture, and interaction design lens, and you’ll translate that into high-quality final designs that our customers will love.

You’ll also take a leadership role in design critique and help implement the long-term vision for the Homebase Design Team, influencing your colleagues through qualitative and quantitative data as well as generally-accepted best practices.

Experience & Attributes You Bring

  • You’ve owned design projects from concept to implementation through sound research, discovery, collaboration, iteration, and partnering with Engineers during execution.
  • You’ve shipped entire end-to-end experiences across web and mobile that start from understanding user needs and contexts.
  • You have the ability to clearly express your desired UX metrics and create a plan to develop and evaluate them.
  • You have a wide range of early-stage UX practices in your toolkit. Examples could include — but are not limited to! — task flows, wireframing, low-fidelity prototyping, workshop facilitation, and design research.
  • You have a high degree of visual polish in your UI design and an understanding of communicating detailed interactions with engineers.
  • You can articulate your design choices with peers and stakeholders clearly and are skilled at giving and receiving design feedback.
  • You’ve demonstrated that you can balance speed and quality, keeping our customers’ needs central to your work.
  • You demonstrate a sense of ownership and accountability for the team’s work and outcomes — the good and the bad.
  • Have a learning mindset. You are intellectually curious with a desire to learn continuously.
  • You demonstrate humility, knowing that our work isn’t about us; it’s about building in service to our customers. You share credit with team members and welcome collaboration, ideas, and feedback.

Desired Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience in product design in a consumer-grade SaaS environment
  • Significant experience leading customer discovery and user research efforts
  • Formal education in user experience design
  • Are well-versed in Figma best practices
  • A passion for serving small businesses!
