Full-time · Clay Solutions

As Clay’s Senior Product Designer you will be leading the vision for the digital product area alongside your product management and engineering counterparts. We expect you to deeply understand what the needs of our users are and what drives them. And that you continuously find ways to meet our user needs.

Clay develops unique and complex products, that require a translation to different end-users. Your role will be to understand this technology, and think of the correct flows and deliver keen, understandable designs.

Before delivering your design, part of your job will also be to gather insight from actual end-users. By creating prototypes, and using online feedback tools (or any method you want to suggest), you make sure to substantiate your design-decisions towards the team. Here you can really help Clay mature, so user-testing is a plus.

What you'll do

  • Connect with end-users to understand their world and problems that they face regarding access management.
  • Find out different ways to approach problems that you have defined together with the team.
  • Contribute to product requirements alongside product owners.
  • Create wireframes, storyboards, sitemaps, screen flows, and prototypes;
  • Contribute and improve the existing KS Design System.
  • Partner with the Data team and product owners throughout the design process for understanding if you are solving the real user/business problems correctly.

Technical skills and expertise

  • 5+ years of extensive UX/UI design experience for designing complex systems or applications.

  • You can keep design impactful in complexity and ambiguity and embrace constraints.

  • You can bring stakeholders to the same vision and objectives through workshops, documentation, and clear communication.

  • You have an excellent working knowledge of core design and human-computer interactions principles.

  • You collaborated with product management and engineering to balance the right decisions for the product with the right choices for the users.

  • You worked on product experiences for international audiences.

  • You have experience working with Sketch (or Figma) and Principle.
