We're looking for a well-rounded Design Team Lead to join our team, Lift Off, which focuses on new product design and development. In this role, you’ll provide mentorship and support a team of up to four teammates: individual contributors who are design consultants. Additionally, you’ll work directly with clients on projects as a Senior/Lead Designer, collaborate with other team leadership on team fulfillment, client success, and improving team processes and partner closely with product managers, designers, engineers, and clients to help solve problems.

Designers in this role will wear many hats, so we’re hoping to see both examples of UI and UX work and examples of front-end engineering in your portfolio.

thoughtbot is a remote company. This is a fully-remote, full-time position on the Lift Off team, which focuses on building significant initial versions of new products for existing companies or complex new startups. We're looking for teammates who overlap with our clients' working hours. This position is available to anyone throughout the Americas (UTC-3 through UTC-10).

Requirements

  • You have experience in mentoring team members. You want to help Designers continue to grow skills and provide career development support.
  • You demonstrate and articulate an understanding of layout, typography, visual hierarchy, and accessibility in web and mobile interfaces.
  • You can implement your designs with HTML & CSS, maintaining a clean markup and style, and working with our Developers in Git.
  • You research to gain understanding, conduct user interviews and usability tests, and document ethnographic research or other methods, so you can synthesize well and craft actionable steps from it.
  • You think iteratively and holistically about how to release design in small pieces and show your work often to clients and team mates
  • You articulate design decisions well and can give constructive and impactful feedback to others. You educate and know how to support clients through learning more about design, validating products, and through difficult situations or tough conversations.
  • You have experience with facilitating design sprints and building design systems
  • You foster a highly-collaborative and inclusive design process and workplace. We especially appreciate candidates that demonstrate commitment to valuing DEI and contributing to an inclusive working and learning environment. We also understand that not everyone has had the opportunity to commit to this work, and that's okay.

thoughtbot designers are fully capable of creating great visual design as well as doing great product design and user experience, and then implementing their designs with front-end technologies. As Design Team Lead, you should be very experienced in at least one of these areas.

Qualified candidates value diversity, equity, and inclusion, and contribute to an inclusive working and learning environment.

Well-qualified candidates demonstrate commitment to valuing DEI and contributing to an inclusive working and learning environment. We also understand that not everyone has had the opportunity to commit to this work, and that's okay.

We encourage you to apply even if you don’t match 100% of the requirements. Let us know if you need any specific accommodations during the interview process.
