About the role

Rabbet is looking for a talented Mid-Senior level Product Designer to join our Austin, Texas-based team in building intelligent software that simplifies construction lending. We are in need of an enthusiastic self-starter that is capable of designing pragmatic solutions to user problems.

As a startup, we pride ourselves on our pragmatism. We try to focus on directly answering user problems and focusing on building solutions that deliver the most value to a user rather than trying to make features that need to be "perfect".

We are on an ongoing journey of building out more robust user research processes, and a designer with experience in running user research would be a definite plus.

Core Responsibilities

  • Empathetically understand our users and drive empathy throughout our product team by acting as the voice of our users.
  • Push to gain a deeper understanding of why we're building what we're building.
  • Build mockups and design solutions that take into mind a pragmatic understanding of
    • user empathy
    • user value / priorities
    • difficulty / effort to build
    • consistency & scalability with our design system
  • Communicate and collaborate around designs through critique, brainstorming or other team discovery methods.
  • Communicate, collaborate and support designs through development and QA. Working with the dev and QA team to not only build the solution but to understand what and why they're building it.

Requirements

  • Portfolio demonstrating an ability to understand complex user problems and build scalable solutions
  • The ability to think pragmatically about a problem and design solutions that maximize user value & minimize the effort to build
  • Ability to give and receive critique and have nuanced conversations around technical and complex functionality.

Bonus Skills (not necessary to apply)

  • Experience running user research exercises.
  • Experience working on a b2b product especially in finance or construction.
  • Experience working at a startup
