Senior Product Designer
We at Hasty are looking for a great Product Designer to join our growing team of 10. We are looking for someone who wants to join an early-stage venture-backed startup with already existing traction and financing, to take charge of the design of the product, and make a great product even better.
About the role:
As a full-time product designer, you would be responsible for improving what is already there as well as shape the products we want to build in the future. The role comes with high autonomy and tasks covering the whole design process. This includes things like supporting our user research to completing designs. You will design experiences that will allow more organizations and people to use complex AI technology in a simple and intuitive way.
We are a Berlin-based startup that specializes in machine learning and computer vision. During the last 18 months, we built the top annotation tool on the market for machine learning and we are evolving that to cover more of the total user journeys to become a more comprehensive tool. If you’re not familiar with the concept of annotation, think about it like Photoshop – but instead of creating visuals, you are marking what is in an image to train an AI. Those markings or annotations, as they are called in the industry, are then used to give context for images to train machine learning algorithms. This is the bread and butter of modern vision AI development, and we are making this process up to 10x faster when compared to other tools, meaning that our users can build and train higher quality AI models much faster than ever before.
We get that 10x gain in efficiency for users by offering a novel approach, where humans and machines can collaborate together in our UI. Our AI models create suggestions which users can then accept, reject, or edit. That feedback is then used to improve our models, which will create better suggestions leading to a virtuous cycle of increased efficiency and increased transparency into AI models.
As a product designer, you will work closely with our Chief Product Officer on both operational and strategic tasks. The role will be a mix of hands-on design work and strategic decision-making. We are exploring completely new fields of how to build experiences that allow humans and machines to work together, and need a curious and open-minded person that can both come up with innovative ideas, and then turn those ideas into great experiences.
In the role, you will develop concepts together with our engineers and our users in a collaborative setting where you don’t have to wait for feedback. You will also have the opportunity to build up a design team and implement overall design processes and activities from the ground up.
- Hands-on experience with creating complex product experiences
- A desire to work autonomously, impact the direction of where we are going, and be involved in strategic decisions
- Demonstrate strategic product design thinking and vision in your portfolio
- Experience in going from strategic product thinking to end-to-end UX and UI product design
- Design process and user research skills
- Experience using Figma and/or Sketch
- Knowledge of design systems
- Nice to have: experience working with an engineering team
- Excellent English communication skills
What we offer:
We offer a competitive salary package, the possibility to have flexible working hours and a lot of autonomy of how you do your work and how you structure your day. You will be given responsibility and have ownership of your tasks. We are, of course, there to support you as you need.
Last but not least, we think the major perk in working here is to work with a senior team of people who are both uniquely brilliant and great at supporting each other. We are firm believers that Hasty, the product, is great because we have done a good job in empowering our team. We would be excited to invite you to join our band of misfits.
