Overview

At Marco Polo we’re passionate about helping people feel close. We develop technology to make that kind of magic happen, and we insist on feeling joyful along the way.

We’re looking to hire a Senior UI/UX Designer.

A great candidate for this role has a strong background in UI/UX, including mobile experience. You have a great capacity for listening and being flexible, are able to work fast and iterate, and take feedback quickly and productively. You have excellent command over the media of design (e.g. Sketch) and care more about outcomes than pixels. You’ll ideally have experience designing for consumers. You care deeply about technology’s ability to make people feel close and want to shape that experience for consumers.

In this position, you’ll:
  • Design magical mobile experiences: Take broad, conceptual ideas to turn into meaningful experiences. You’ll identify needs of Marco Polo customers and turn them into awesome new product features or improvements
  • Partner cross-functionally: Work collaboratively with other designers and engineers to oversee the user experience of new features from concept to launch
  • Participate in feedback: Regularly give and receive feedback on design iterations across Marco Polo products. You’ll also perform user research to help guide product design.
  • Contribute to product strategy: You’ll be asking and answering questions like “what should we build?” and “what problems need to be solved?” and “how will this move our business forward?”
Ideally you have:
  • An excellent sense of typography, layout, color, and general design principles
  • An ability to adapt your designs across different platforms and form factors
  • An ability to communicate your design decisions, and work cross-functionally with different teams and roles (including developers, project managers, marketing and other designers)
  • Willingness to change and adapt designs based on engineering constraints
  • Humility and focus on building a great product that people love
  • A compelling portfolio showcasing your work and attention to detail, which ideally includes shipped mobile product designs
  • Experience designing for multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Desktop, etc.) with current tools (Sketch, Principal, Framer, etc.)
  • 4+ years design experience at a product company
