As our Web Product Designer, you will be to take the reins on the UX and UI design of Blinkist.com and Blinkist Magazine.
With Blinkist, we’ve created a meaningful product that is growing fast. Blinkist.com is one of the key touch-points for people to learn about Blinkist and remains a way many of our customers enjoy our content. And with the launch of Blinkist Magazine, we’re excited about showcasing smart, concise content. Magazine already reaches thousands of engaged readers and we believe with the right designer on board, we can inspire even more curious people.
As our Web Product Designer you will:
Be the lead designer Blinkist Magazine and Blinkist.com, working closely with our Marketing teams, to produce great user experiences
Design experimental ideas and features that will help scale Blinkist Magazine and inspire Magazine visitors to become engaged Blinkist app customers
Improve the Blinkist.com experience: from landing page, to discovery, the reading experience and more
Iterate often and quickly using a data-informed approach
Think strategically about how to ship designs in smaller parts to validate assumptions
Champion design culture and user needs within Blinkist
To do this, we believe you should have:
At least 3 years of web/digital product design experience, ideally in-house/startup.
A portfolio that demonstrates strong UX and UI design skills
Clear communication skills; you’re able to justify your design work in a clear manner
No ego, plenty of enthusiasm; you know that testing can require many iterations and not all ideas will hit the mark the first time but you’re excited about trying different ideas to get there
A clear, defined workflow and a process for solving problems
The ability to accept and resolve feedback graciously
A collaborative spirit; you’re eager to share your work and you’re happy to provide feedback and suggestions to other team members designs, too.
Bonus: experience with user testing & frontend development experience
