Lead Product Designer


– Accepting applications
Are you interested in working with businesses to help design software that will truly have an impact on their bottom line? Do you want to work with a remote-first team that also values face-to-face interaction? Do you want to work with customers that are eager for strategic direction and guidance?

As Simple Thread’s Lead Product Designer, you’ll be responsible for transforming the company from an engineering oriented consultancy, into a consultancy that focuses on melding design and engineering at every level. You’ll need to evangelize the mindset of a designer with the rest of the team, as well as work with our clients to create great products.
Do you love to…
  • Collaborate with customers to understand their goals and challenges.
  • Take concepts and ideas, and turn them into delightful and usable products.
  • Focus on the user, and use user centered design to drive-out and address customers’ needs.
  • Design simple, beautiful, and usable user experiences.
  • Use both lightweight mockups and high fidelity prototypes to help validate design decisions.
  • Communicate with non-designers to articulate the value of good design.
  • Stay abreast of emerging UX and UI trends.
Do you have?
  • 5+ years of UX and/or UI design experience working with digital products.
  • Experience with UI design and prototyping tools such as Sketch, Adobe Creative Suite, InVision, etc…
  • Familiarity with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript… not a developer, but enough experience to know how to communicate with developers and to know what is possible.
  • A solid understanding of UX design principles.
  • An awesome portfolio.
If would be awesome if you…
  • Were within easy driving distance of Richmond or Charlottesville Virginia!
  • Didn’t mind meeting clients face to face on occasion, which could mean traveling up to 20% of the time.
