Job Description:

Smule's mission is to connect the world through music. Music is much more than just listening. It's about creating, sharing, discovering, participating, and connecting with people. It is the original social network with the power to break down barriers, touch souls, and bring people together from all over the world. About You: You are an expert, experienced digital product designer with at least three years of experience leading other designers at large scale consumer-facing companies. You are passionate about creating digital product experiences for people around the world, and possess the curiosity, humility, and tenacity required to do this successfully. You deeply understand--the business strategy and goals of the context in which you work while ensuring the solutions you and your team create align with "the why." You are fluent in the constraints and opportunities of designing for iOS, Android--and apps for--the Web. You balance visionary thinking with urgent execution. You prototype everything to bring your ideas to life. You can learn and understand new, complex challenges quickly; explain them succinctly; and create and explain simple solutions. You are a natural leader who has experience building and growing a multi-disciplined product design team, from UX and UI design to user research and testing. Above all, you are passionate, courageous, and excited about connecting the world through music. Responsibilities:

  • Define and elevate the design language of Smule's products
  • Persuasively communicate the vision and strategy of all design decisions to peers, direct reports, cross-functional partners, and executive leaders
  • Partner with Product Management, Engineering, Brand and Marketing to plan and execute key roadmap initiatives
  • Translate the company visions and strategic goals into innovative products and features
  • Provide direction to a team of designers and lead projects from conception through implementation
  • Lead and grow a world-class, multi-disciplined product design organization
  • Foster a culture that encourages innovation, ownership, and autonomy
  • Establish workflows, processes, and standards for developing all design systems that scale across our product suite
  • Champion the design team, and educate cross-functional colleagues on how product design drives company goals and vision
    Requirements:
    • At least 10 years of overall experience designing digital products.
    • 3+ years leading strong product design teams in a dynamic, consumer-oriented environment
    • Expert knowledge of UI and UX patterns for iOS, Android and web applications
    • Bold vision and passion for great design
    • Excellent writing and speaking skills, telling stories that illuminate and explain design decisions
    • User centered design process with a focus on quality and consistency
    • Excellent leadership skills that inspires design talent and drives innovation
    • Proven track record of effective collaboration with Product Management and Engineering
    • Glowing references from talented designers who would jump at the chance to work with you again
    • Expert-level skills in Adobe Creative Cloud, Sketch, prototyping software, and other digital design tools
      The Ideal Candidate:
      • Loves music and creative expression in all forms
      • Demonstrates resilience in the face of challenges
      • Is a highly strategic, imaginative, and conceptual thinker
      • Pushes creative boundaries without sacrificing business objectives

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years. Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
