Lead Product Designer at Snapdocs
About the role
Snapdocs is a rapidly growing company backed by investors like Sequoia, Y Combinator, F-Prime and Tiger Global. We're an innovative team taking on the extensive mortgage market, bringing scalable and sophisticated software to a pillar of the US economy that still relies on fax machines and manila envelopes.
At Snapdocs, we are on a mission to enhance the real estate closing process with efficiency and transparency so that lenders can close their loans sooner and home buyers can move into their dream homes quicker. Our company is expanding our product offerings and onboarding large swaths of new customers which is exciting! As we continue to grow and reach key business goals, we’re looking for a smart, user-centered, and curious Lead Product Designer to join the team. If this sounds exciting to you, read on...
As a Lead Product Designer, you will be a leader on our design team and will be working on interconnected products while thinking through complex systems and workflows. You will oversee your own product area with the possibility to manage a small team of up to two designers. You will identify and solve problems around things like fully digital closings, our e-note product, and scaling our platform to handle bringing on a large swath of new customers. You will develop working relationships with colleagues across the business, and actively look to mentor others and contribute to the wider design community. You will design software that reimagines real estate transactions with modern experiences that put people first.
Our ideal candidate has at least 5+ years of Product Design experience and preferably 1-2 years of management experience. You’ve led design on highly complex, critical projects and can face ambiguity with curiosity and calm. You have a deep understanding of multiple foundational user experience tactics and tools such as task flows, journey maps, user research skills, prototyping and high fidelity mockups. You thrive when you work alongside your product and engineering teammates to define problems to be solved—and you use input from customers, the business, and our vision of the future. You’re always thinking about the holistic product, user experience, and potential interactions between different products, features and platforms. You can use layout, typography, and visual hierarchy subtly and effectively—and use those skills to critique and mentor other designers, so we can all grow our skills and design a better product for our users.
Snapdocs strongly values diversity and drive. We want to work with people of different backgrounds and different paths in life, and we trust our team to make smart decisions. This means we value independent work as well as collaboration. We provide outstanding benefits (listed below) and while we have hubs in both San Francisco and Denver, we're an extremely remote-friendly company with over a third of our staff outside of those two hubs!
Our benefits include (but are not limited to):
- Excellent health, dental, and vision benefits
- 401(k) with up to 4% company match
- 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender)
- Flexible time off policy
- Flexible spending account for healthcare and dependent care
- Galileo, Modern Health, Urban Sitter, and Northstar Financial memberships
- Life and disability insurance
- Commuter benefits
- 10 year exercise window on your equity (!!)
Snapdocs is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation, please let us know.
Why you should join Snapdocs
Snapdocs powers homeownership. Using technology, we’re building the connective tissue for an entire pillar of the U.S. economy: residential real estate.
Today, we’re working to perfect mortgage closings, but that’s only the beginning. If we succeed, more than five million families per year will gain clarity and transparency as they make the biggest financial decision of their lives: buying a home. Before Snapdocs, no one felt responsible or empowered to solve the problems we face every day we come to the office.
It's complex and difficult work, and the result is not an app we brag about at tech industry parties. Instead, we're making a difference and carefully building a team that shares our priorities—pragmatism, respect and empathy for our clients, and building honest products that improve all our users’ lives.
