We're looking for a Senior Product Designer in Sydney
"Qwilr’s on a mission to build the easiest way to communicate on the web. From sole traders to Dropbox and Deloitte, businesses use our platform to quickly create and share beautiful and persuasive documents online. I'm looking for someone to help lead our visual and interaction polish across the product, grow our creative culture, and help our users create quick and empowered design outcomes."
Head of Design
About the role
You'll help the Product Design team create thoughtful, intuitive and visually engaging solutions for our customers in over 30 countries. You'll empower first-time and long-time users to communicate their intent with ease, and make complex design concepts into simple to understand and enjoyable tools.
Achieving this well requires a depth of interaction design skills, with a focus on prototyping and validating ideas in low and high fidelity, with excellent collaboration between Designers, Engineers and Customers.
Why this team?
Problems you'll tackle
Design a best in class web editor
Web pages can do amazing things today, and we want Qwilr to enable everyone to create those experiences. Visually engaging layouts, interactive content, transitions and styles. The challenge here is finding a way to make these impressive outcomes fast, simple and intuitive. And that's no easy task.
Broaden our product's use cases
We started as an online proposal tool, but people have been organically using us for more—landing pages, brochures, events. You'll help define this new category, and make it easier and more valuable for teams to work with these use cases across their organisation.
Enable real-time collaboration
There's lots of tricky experience and interaction details that need to be figured out to make this feel smooth and clear, especially to match the expectation that's been framed by Google Docs.
Set the stage for automation
Our future lies in being able to automate the creation of Qwilr Pages. From forms people fill out, other integrations, or even things they click inside other Qwilr Pages.
Scale our design system
Kaleidoscope is our internal design system, and we've been documenting our approach, what we add, and how it's leveraged in the product team. You'll help define our interaction and visual style.
Perks you'll get
We believe you do your best work when you feel your best. We provide a setup bonus when you join, provide complimentary yoga, and have retreats to chat about our future twice a year. Along with a competitive salary, everyone joining the Qwilr journey also gets stock options from day one.
How the process works
Stage 1 —
You'll submit your portfolio (in any form that comes in) so we can see what your strengths are, and if you are a good fit on paper based on the skill profile we've outlined above.
Stage 2 —
Catchup call with Elisa
You'll have an initial call with Elisa, our Talent & Culture Lead to chat through some of your product design experience and you'll also get to ask questions about working at Qwilr.
Stage 3 —
Design takehome task
You'll do a small take home task so we can see how you approach a design problem. We’re evaluating design thinking and approach first and foremost, but we're looking for candidates with great visual execution, and keen focus on interaction details.
Stage 4 —
Interview & Whiteboard
This stage is an interview with Dom and one other designer, followed by a whiteboard session similar to the take home task. This is to see how you approach a design problem in person, and get a general feel for what it would be like working together as collaborators in a team context.
Stage 5 —
Meet the Founders
After this, you’ll come in to meet the founders, Dylan (our CEO) and Mark (our COO). This will be an informal chat, and an opportunity for you to get to know the Founders personally, and for them to get to know you.
