Remote Job Description

We are looking for an experienced designer to help us develop the outstanding product for artists and their teams. Together, we’ll come up with exciting and effective ways to help them succeed. You’ll help us craft a strategy rooted firmly in user insights that paint an exciting vision of the future, and deliver on that vision through effective planning, interaction design, visuals, and prototypes.

As stewards of Spotify for Artists, we strive to scale our many experiences to ensure our users can seamlessly navigate and meaningfully engage with our growing number of capabilities to equip their teams and artists for success. In this role, you’ll work with engineers, product managers, researchers, and data scientists to build Spotify for Artists mobile apps.

What you'll do:

  • Lead design projects across the entire product lifecycle and multiple product launches. You set the vision for the user experience and create the space for others to collaborate.
  • Own the experience of iOS and Android apps that are part of a larger ecosystem. You will work the full spectrum, from strategy and concepts to detailed design and implementation support.
  • Build cohesive, cross-platform design patterns that communicate our brand. You will develop comprehensive design guidelines and specifications for the teams.
  • Let users own the way. Our teams focus on listening to users, and letting their needs guide us to the best solutions. It’s important for us to know we are solving problems for real people and teams
  • Work with small multi-disciplinary teams. You’ll partner closely with engineering, product, and business folks to find sophisticated, but practical solutions to design challenges. You’ll provide the thought leadership to develop the right product strategy. Together, you’ll tackle problems and come up with solutions that delight our users.
  • Be autonomous. You’ll take full ownership of your work, and responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way.
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.
Who you are:

  • You have 5+ years of related experience designing at tech companies or digital product design agencies.
  • You’re constantly sketching concepts, tweaking flows or refining designs that represent the big-thinking and strategic work. Your head is in the clouds while your feet are on the ground.
  • You have outstanding design chops. You’ve shipped products, and understand what it takes to build valuable, people-oriented experiences.
  • You have strong native mobile apps for iOS and Android that you have designed and shipped in your portfolio. You are proficient in crafting user flows, information architecture, navigation patterns, transitions, animations and interactions for touch screen platforms.
  • You will support implementation, ensuring that your designs look and work great. You will design QA with product managers and developers.
  • You are a passionate systems designer. You are experienced at generating patterns, icons, and components that work cohesively across product channels and platforms: Android, iOS, web. Your patterns are functionally sound and clearly manifest the brand. Your design guidelines are meticulous and teams can autonomously implement components from them.
  • You’re an effective communicator and facilitator. You have planned sprints and structured workshops to drive outcomes quickly and effectively. You’re familiar with best practices but are just as comfortable challenging them.
  • You also have the ability to deliver high-quality work and care about the impact.
  • You have a people-focused design mentality. You are constantly looking to refine your designs through user feedback, whether through hands-on user research, or designing options for A/B tests.
  • You have an online portfolio or a PDF that you can share with us.
