Product Designer

Wellington, New Zealand


Position objective

We are currently looking for a Product Designer to come and help us create the future. If a collaborative work environment, supportive and flexible work culture and a product offering that is trying to change the world sounds exciting to you – read on! We would be really keen to have a chat if you have:

  • 2+ years of professional experience in a collaborative design or tech environment.
  • An ability to work collaboratively with developers on projects.
  • An expert eye for detail.
  • Strong written and oral communication and presentation skills.
  • A strategic and curious mindset.
  • A love of all things UX.
  • An appreciation for A/B testing and talking to customers to inform design decisions.
  • A proactive approach to your work.
  • A desire to grow in your discipline by seeking constructive feedback and providing it in return; and
  • Front-end and design system experience.

On any given day you could be:

  • Introducing and maintaining a UX/UI workflow.
  • Building interface templates as part of a new design system.
  • Turning visions, strategic requirements and insights into concepts.
  • Working alongside our UX writer for UX and UI concepts.
  • Prototype testing with our customers.
  • Creating guidelines for scope and acceptance criteria.
  • Designing delightful and usable interfaces to align with our product vision.
  • Exporting assets for implementation.
  • Ensuring implemented assets look great and function properly.
  • Facilitating co-designs with key stakeholders.
  • Documenting all processes and work.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and accessibility experience are preferred but not essential. Ultimately, we are looking for an amazing person first – not just a list of bullet points. In exchange for your skills, we will provide you with the tools you need, the work environment you crave, the best colleagues, professional development and a smorgasbord of office dogs to pat. 

Note: This is not a remote opportunity. Due to COVID-19 border restrictions, candidates are required to be based in, and eligible to work in New Zealand. 

We like to do things differently at Optimal Workshop – Do you?
