Requirements
  • You have 10+ years of work experience in user experience/user interface (UX/UI) Design. As a small but growing team, we're looking for someone who has experience leading design initiatives and working cross-functionally and has successfully owned and driven products or features through the entire product design cycle
  • You are proficient in relevant design software (e.g. Figma, Sketch, Illustrator, XD, Photoshop, etc) and are able to pick up new tools quickly. Experience with Figma is a required
  • You are highly effective and excel at design craft. We're looking for a design lead who moves quickly, while upholding high standards for design and product quality
  • You are a great communicator. Given that Ledger employees are all home-office based, many of our interactions occur asynchronously. We're looking for someone who possess strong verbal and written communication skills and can articulate product design processes and decisions to the broader team
  • You are excited about tackling hard problems with many tradeoffs. We're looking to build thoughtful, intentional and user-focused experiences that balance complexity with clarity. To succeed, we need someone excited to dig deep and arrive at the right solutions through constant iteration and tight feedback loops
Responsibilities
  • Lead the design process and the end-to-end experience across the entire Ledger ecosystem. Partner with product, engineering, designers, sales and others to understand the needs of users throughout the ecosystem, validate and iterate on solutions through sketches, wireframes or prototypes, and bring products from ideation to production
  • Use and extend our design system. Working as a team, deliver a consistent and cohesive experience to our users is key. You'll help create flexible, extensibile patterns and evolve our design system as we scale
  • Show ownership and self-direction. As a remote-first company, we rely on everyone to be responsible, autonomous, and accountable for their work without anyone peering over their shoulder. We're looking for someone who will thrive in ambiguity, can independently prioritize work based on user needs and business goals, and be accountable to drive products forward
  • Help build a distinctive Ledger brand identity. Although your core focus will be on product design, you may work on an illustration, design a website or help design marketing materials. Through it all, we want to build a strong, unique, and distinctive brand that stands out from the crowd
