What you will learn:
How to get stuff done! You will solve real-world challenges that no experience or training can help you. Only your grit and passion for solving the problem will help you figure out how to deal with them. You will learn to think from a technical and product point of view.
What you will impact:
You would be directly working to:
- Own the product design from making the existing design better to being the think tank of new ideas.
- Conduct user research and work closely with clients to understand the requirements.
- Identify new product improvement opportunities.
- Analyze and suggest how a new product/feature satisfy market needs and consumer preferences.
- Work closely with the engineering team to build the best UI.
- Drive the entire design from buttons to some smooth butter-like user experiences.
- Create wireframes, storyboards, user stories, and design ideas.
- Take part in marketing and branding activities that will help curate your design ideas.
- Review and correct the design development outputs of web and mobile apps.
- Connect with the users of the Platform to understand their needs and expectations from the Platform interface/portal
- Help define the design vision that could feed into the Platform product roadmap with the help of the design lead
- Plan and design wireframe/flow for the project/feature you are working on
- Come up with ways to validate the design by taking user feedback early and by collaborating with the Research team as required
- Collaborate and coordinate with interaction designers, copywriters, creatives and business leads to arrive at a holistic product solution
- Work with the design lead, product heads, and engineers to build/improve user experience towards that vision
- Manage projects, solve complex problems, and deliver delightful solutions that drive impact
- Create design documentation & help establish processes to ensure seamless collaboration
- And most importantly, play games & talk about anything and everything with the team during chill-out sessions

We need people who are quick learners and bold enough to suggest crazy ideas.
- 1-3 years of experience as a UI/UX/product designer.

- Proficiency in product design with extensive and demonstrated expertise in the visual hierarchy, layout, and information architecture
