Who we need

We are looking for a creative and hard-working Senior Product Designer to join our Machine Learning (ML) team. As a Product Designer, you will work closely with product management, ML engineers, and ML Researchers to design and deliver next-generation tools and services to transform the VFX industry.

What you’ll do:

  • Leverage UX thinking and execution to deliver well-crafted product designs that provide clarity, continuity, and context for the VFX artists who use our ML products
  • Conduct user research interviews across the organization and industry - analyze collected data, and leverage your findings to inform design decisions
  • Communicate design solutions to engineers and stakeholders, and work to solve issues that arise in the build process
  • Create user flows and wireframes, build user interface mock-ups and prototypes, and work closely with Researchers, Engineers, Content Strategists, and Product Managers throughout design processes

 Who you are:

  • FAST/EFFICIENT: You work blazingly fast to produce wireframes and examples of how something might look. You aren’t married to your ideas but have an understanding that a picture is worth a thousand words. Your wireframes will drive clarity between the various departments.
  • CONFIDENT: VFX and Machine Learning are two very different worlds - your job will be marrying the two together and challenging industry norms.
  • SIMPLIFIER: Machine Learning is complex. You need to be able to handle that complexity and turn it into a simple, but powerful, user experience.
