About The Role

FireHydrant is seeking a Senior Product Designer to create simple, elegant, and intuitive interfaces for our function-heavy products. This role is focused on visual interactive interface design: how users interact with devices, how users process information, and ultimately how FireHydrant’s products look and feel. Core to this role is creating UI in a visually systematic way that ensures a holistic, consistent experience across our products.

In addition to exceptional UI and interaction design talent, success in this role is dependent on being highly self motivated as well as extremely collaborative.

  • Work through strategic discovery sessions to create innovative solutions to customer problems with a product team
  • Understand our customer's pain points through research to craft more empathetic products
  • Provide interactive prototypes and deliverables to convey interactions, including motion where appropriate to enhance UI
  • Iterate based on design critique from peers and from learnings found in user testing
  • Build out multi-version comps for user testing
  • Run user testing research sessions
  • Execute final, UI designs and package, spec, and prep for engineering.
  • Continuously audit developed software for visual perfection (always be QA’ing!), and provide detailed feedback to engineering towards revisions.

What You’ll Bring

  • Passion for design work and technology, you love what you do.
  • Top tier user interface and interaction design skills.
  • Deeply collaborative and iterative approach to product design, focused on ensuring a unified experience across the board.
  • Understanding of accessibility guidelines
  • Research experience
  • Understanding of prototyping UI interactivity and incorporating motion/animation into UI.
  • Experience working closely with engineers to develop and iterate on interactive software experiences.
  • Previous product design experiences at business-focused tech companies.
  • Exceptional design velocity: ability and willingness to quickly produce multiple concepts.
  • A strong understanding of the tools and technologies involved in designing and building interactive software experiences including Sketch and InVision.
  • A keen knowledge of design and interaction patterns and trends within each.

We’d Like to See You Accomplish

  • Empathetic solutions for a product that is used during high stress periods.
  • Evangelize design across the organization.

Life at FireHydrant

  • We’re remote-first with employees around the US, our headquarters is in NYC (Union Square)
  • We collaborate through Slack, Zoom, Figma, Notion, and Clubhouse
  • We believe in a healthy work-life balance; we’re early stage but work reasonable hours and want you to use your vacation time
