Product Designer, Mobile and TV

New York, United States

You open up Vimeo on your phone. Or maybe your tablet. OK, your TV. What do you see? Well, that’s where you come in. We need your expert eye for design and user experience know-how to help inform how all our devices look, feel, and function.

In this role, you’ll design an evolution of all native mobile and TV apps for Vimeo. You’ll work collaboratively with engineers, product managers, key stakeholders, and other designers to advocate for user-centered design, execute product vision, and take part in design innovation on mobile and TV platforms — all while maintaining Vimeo’s simple, user-centered design aesthetic. 

If you’re passionate about designing mobile and TV apps that not only work but kinda blow people minds, step right up. And if you care about people using your products and stick up for consistent, functional, and iterative design, awesome. You’ll fit right in.

WHAT YOU’LL DO:

  • Design for all native Vimeo apps on mobile phones, tablets, televisions, and future screens of our dreams
  • Become an expert on Vimeo’s content, audience, design sensibility, suite of apps, and also the greater landscape for streaming video
  • Track industry trends and developments, listen to what people are saying, and identify data and competitors that are relevant to Vimeo
  • Define UI patterns that unify, improve, and elevate the design of our native apps on all platforms
  • Help define direction of the vimeo.com audience experience through exploration and iterative experimentation
  • Suggest tests, updates, and new projects for mobile & TV with a focus on hitting business and team goals

SKILLS & KNOWLEDGE YOU SHOULD POSSESS:

  • 2-3+ years of experience as a user experience designer, interaction designer, or similar design role
  • Experience designing for iOS and Android platforms (including TVOS and Android TV)
  • Previous experience in product design working on a single consumer-facing project, which you’ve iterated over time
  • Strong communication skills and a deep understanding of how design thinking provides solutions to meet objectives
  • “Full-Stack” designer: UX, UI, visual, prototypes
  • Experience with large-scale web applications, preferably one that deals primarily with streaming video and/or UGC content
  • An online portfolio or samples of work that demonstrate relevant experience and your design process — your work should reflect the lifecycle of a project, not just the final product to demonstrate your ability to simplify complex experiences and communicate how your designs solve problems
  • A well-rounded understanding of user-centered design processes, as well as strong knowledge of user experience principles
  • Experience working as part of a collaborative team of designers, developers, and product managers

BONUS POINTS:

  • A bachelor’s or higher degree in interaction design, human-computer interaction (HCI), or equivalent UX experience is ideal
  • Experience with video-based products
  • An existing presence in the design community as a thought leader through writing/speaking engagements
  • Experience working with Agile development methodology
  • Experience with Sketch and Zeplin
