Senior Product Designer (UI/UX)

LeadPages Minneapolis, MN
At Leadpages, we're inspired by the courage, passion, and entrepreneurial spirit of our small business customers, and we believe that great design is fundamental to fueling their success. Our designers are involved at every step of the project -- from gathering insights, brainstorming, prototyping & experimentation to launching pixel-perfect designs.

We're looking to add a Senior Product Designer to our team that's customer-obsessed and thrives on solving complex problems in creative, elegant ways. In particular, we're looking for someone that has Jedi-like skills in visual design, but totally OWNS the end-to-end experience and even dabbles in creating delightful copy. If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!

What You'll Do:

* Work through design problems from beginning to end: translating research insights into ideas that form disruptive new products and features, then designing the workflows and detailed interactions to realize them

* Push and evolve visual frameworks and patterns based on brand guidelines

* Utilize design thinking best practices like deep customer empathy and rapid prototyping to arrive at innovative, intuitive end-to-end experiences

* Advance a strong point of view, backed up by customer insights, design principles, and industry trends

* Collaborate effectively with your product manager and engineering team members

* Give and solicit feedback from other designers in order to continually raise our bar for design quality

Minimum Qualifications

What'll get your foot in the door:

* Demonstrated success coming up with elegant, intuitive solutions to complex problems

* Can iterate with low-fidelity sketches of workflows and translate those into beautiful high-fidelity designs

* Experience with user-centered design methodologies

* Curiosity and commitment to testing new ideas and innovating to drive business results

* Experience designing digital apps and systems. You have helped ship products before, ideally in the SaaS space

* 3+ years of visual design experience

* A dazzling online portfolio

Preferred qualifications:
