What do Product Designers do at Hudl?
We make the process above as headache-free as possible. We lead small, cross-functional teams in creating and shipping clear, delightful user experiences. Here’s how we do it.
First, designers conduct primary user research understand our customers’ latent needs. Designers learn why first-hand. There’s no requirements doc handed down from on high. Next, they rough out concepts to test with developers, QA, and their product manager. They sketch, they mock, and they prototype the key interactions. And often, they throw big pieces out when it doesn't connect in a user test.
Once the concepts do start clicking, Product Designers start crafting the interface first (HTML & CSS for web apps, Interface Builder for iOS, etc.). They team up with a developer to improve the code and wire it into back-end systems. Finally, they ensure the visuals, interactions, and IA are consistent throughout the flows and are coherent with the rest of the experience.
Designers don’t let go after the first release. They work with PMs as we iterate, rolling-out improvements to the products as they see real use. Practically, all this means you carry the squad with beautiful visual design, thoughtful interaction design and front-end code.
