The Team & Role 

As a product designer at Gem, you will have the opportunity to create innovative and beautiful experiences customers love. Really: we're a business that wants to make software people love to use.

Work with expert cross-functional peers from companies like Meta, Dropbox, Airbnb, Google, Zumper, Workday, and more. Help us make a great product and define and build a team of designers. And let us help you grow in the ways you want to, whatever your ambitions are.

If you are passionate about creating a strong design culture, engaging directly with customers, designing intuitive and easy-to-use products, and simplifying complexity, we'd love to hear from you!

  • Own design across the entire business by proactively identifying the highest-impact areas for design prioritization, and partner with stakeholders to prioritize
  • Contribute to design team culture and processes

*Please note that this role is based in San Francisco, CA

Qualifications:

  • 4+ years of experience designing and shipping digital products is preferred
  • Deep knowledge of the product development process, from product thinking to visual and interaction design
  • Ability to produce polished, high-fidelity mockups and prototypes of product workflows
  • Motivated self-starter who can work closely with cross-functional partners in product, engineering, research and marketing
