Able is a digital product design and development studio.  We work with entrepreneurs and nonprofit innovators to unlock the potential of their vision, fast.  Our teams consist of exceptional Product Designers, Software Engineers, Product Managers, and all-around company builders. We focus on creating small teams that work closely with partners (our term for “clients”) to start, accelerate, and grow business using technology. Our teams are capable of addressing every stage of the product life cycle including product strategy, research, design, and engineering. Every team enjoys a significant competitive advantage on day one by drawing from our portfolio of proven practices, internal tools, and intellectual property.

Able is seeking a Senior Product Designer to join our growing team. As a Senior Product Designer, you are an active listener, who will collaborate with cross-functional teams to build and launch software products. For each product, you will work closely with our partners, learn about their business priorities and user needs, work with them to define the problems, and collaborate with our team to define and build the solution. Since partnerships are typically long-term, you’ll build, measure, and learn to iterate on solutions throughout the product lifecycle.

We are looking at a mid-autumn start date for this role.

  • Partnering with collaborators to understand business priorities, user needs, and the most important problems to be solved

  • Collaborating with your product pods (product managers, tech leads, and software engineers) to shape and ship effective solutions
  • Providing consistent, high-quality design solutions that map to the intended outcomes of the product
  • Using common interaction patterns and established solutions to inspire, inform, and communicate ideas
  • Working closely with our partners through workshops, sharing progress, and communicating the rationale behind design decisions in a compelling way
  • Assisting with establishing and embodying a design culture internally and externally
  • Modeling and reinforcing our core values

What you bring

  • 5+ years working as a product designer or similar role on web and mobile products
  • Work samples demonstrating great user experience and product thinking by showing your process through flows, prototypes, mock-ups, etc.
  • Experience at a digital agency or similar designing and shipping products in an iterative and lean manner
  • Autonomy and energy to make sense of new and unique problems (zero to one)
  • Comfort adjusting as new information and requirements are gathered about a solution
  • Strong storytelling skills with experience facilitating meetings and creating compelling presentations for executive-level partners
  • A passion for digital products that translates to a deep understanding of modern interaction design patterns, trends, and best practices
  • Comfort collaborating with and building as a team of designers
  • Must be authorized to work in the United States

  • We believe a healthy body equals a healthy mind, so we offer a monthly health and wellness reimbursement
  • We believe in giving back to the community and helping others, which is why we give the team social impact hours to use at their discretion

About Able

Able builds technology products in a portfolio model. We believe that people, teams, and processes are more important than the ideas themselves, so we’ve focused on bringing great people together, and investing in their growth.

We’ve built products in a variety of industries. Everything from media to finance to toys to healthcare. Sometimes we work with management teams to help their businesses grow faster or unlock value using technology. Other times we start or buy businesses outright. Each time, we look for opportunities to leverage technology built at the portfolio-level to drive value faster.

Able is committed to inclusion and diversity and is an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or veteran status.

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.
