Full time Design Product Remote

Job Description

About the team:

Exploring, designing, refining, and improving our product experience is what we do best. We demonstrate that caring for our customers, our craft and our design principles leads to better business. Our multidisciplinary design guild consists of Product Design, UX Writing, central Product Design Foundations (consisting of Design Operations and design specialists such as a UI specialist, Principal Product Designer and Product Illustrations), Customer Research Operations, Brand and Creative Design.

 

Luno is a ‘remote but reachable’ company! At Luno, we trust that people can do their work effectively anywhere and provide Lunauts with the flexibility to decide where they do their best work. For some of us, that’s at home for the majority of the time, for others, that might mean joining other Lunauts in person at one of our Luno workspaces more often. Luno is built on our relationships, so we still value in-person connection and have a minimum expectation of spending time in person once a quarter.  So as long as you are based in one country with a Luno workspace, we want to hear from you!

 

The role in a nutshell:

You will design solutions for undefined problem spaces with a highly collaborative, cross-functional team of engineers, product managers and data scientists. Additionally, you are a recognised, trusted expert who is constantly looking to sharpen your user-centered approach. You’ll bring this drive and artistry into a well-established, embedded team of Product Designers and UX writers with a focus on crafting experiences that deliver value. 

As a Product Designer in Fleet Activate, you will report to Product Design Team Lead, Germari Steenkamp, and Lynda Pettersen, the Fleet Product Director. Additionally, you will work closely with our Product Design Foundations Team led by Lana Glass and Marc Hagan-Guirey, our Principal Product Designer.
