Open levels: Product Designer, Senior Designer, Lead Designer, Senior Lead Designer, Director of Design

What does it mean to feel at home? How do individuals manage the work of moving? What does it take to settle into a new community? These are some of the questions that Updater’s design team explores. 

Moving is one of the most universally relatable experiences, and the process comes with its fair share of challenges. Updater is addressing the pain points of organizing, executing, and adjusting to a move, while enabling movers to feel at home faster.  

We’re looking for experienced end-to-end product designers who are motivated to make an immediate impact through strategy and craft, within a human-centered product team. You’ll leverage user insights to shape roadmaps, create and test feature concepts, and produce elegant engineering-ready solutions. You’ll act as an advocate for our users, who we call “movers”, enabling team members to build mover empathy alongside you. You’ll become an essential member of a world class design team, while partnering with product managers, engineers, researchers and data scientists to bring beautiful experiences to life. Together, we’ll shape the future of relocation-tech and home management through and beyond the moving journey.
