About the role:

Foursquare is seeking a passionate, curious, and thoughtful Senior Product Designer to join our Product Design Team. We believe we're changing the way people experience the world around them, and we want someone who's eager to play an integral role in defining how. We work as a tight, cross-disciplinary team, so you need to feel comfortable working closely with a variety of teams, as well as your fellow designers, to evolve the product and the brand across our mobile clients. The designer will work closely with Product Managers, Developers and other Product Designers on developing new features, updating existing UI for consistency and constantly be up-to-date on platform-specifics.

You'll be involved in every aspect of the product development process from brainstorming the next feature, to tweaking pixels right up to code freeze if necessary. You never make a design decision without considering the impact on the overall experience. You're comfortable quickly iterating your way to a final, well-thought-out solution. You know how to articulate the rationale behind every design decision you make, and you know how to ask the right questions. You also know how to toe the line between practical and playful.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
