Your Week at D2iQ

While there’s probably no such thing as a “typical week”, here are some of the things you can expect your week to include as a Product Designer at D2iQ…

On Monday morning we start with a Monday Starter Slack post where we set our intentions for the week. We each add what we’re focused on accomplishing. Throughout the week we each work with our extended teams that include PMs, developers, and others across the organization to focus on D2iQ’s products. 

We also take time to work together as a design team. This might include design crits or discussions of the problems we’re solving. We often pair and collaborate to work out problems in real time.

Each of us attends product meetings and impromptu meetings that help keep everyone aligned and on track, but there are also times when we meet just for fun. The weekly Design Sync kicks off with a fun design challenge and gives the team space to kick back and relax a little.Every week our team works through user research planning and execution, mocks up new ideas in Figma, partners with the UI team to ensure that our design system is updated and our designs in Figma will match what’s going into production, and works with Product Managers to discuss how best to execute on features that solve user problems. 

Often, the end of the week is a bit quieter. We often have a chance to look back and talk about how the week went. Did we accomplish what we wanted to? Was there room for improvement? It’s also a great time to add to D2iQ’s constantly updating #kudos channel on Slack where we can acknowledge each other and our teammates for the great work they did over the week.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. 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. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
