  • Overview

    Retrium is a seed-funded startup that helps teams improve their Agile processes by facilitating effective and engaging retrospective meetings. With over 85,000 retrospectives run on our platform, we’re the trusted leader in our market, and we’ve been helping teams continuously improve since 2015.

    We’re also a small, cross-functional team of passionate and fun people. We have an outstanding leadership team and a dedication to company culture, so you’ll always feel connected to our mission, even though you can work from anywhere. We’re lucky enough to have an awesome product, great revenue growth, high customer satisfaction, low churn, and a recent round of seed investment. Now, we need someone to help us take our product to the next level!

    The right candidate for the Senior Product Designer position at Retrium is someone who has experience in a product-led organization, can translate complex customer problems into elegant solutions, understands best practices for user interface design, and likes to iterate based on research findings and customer feedback. If you’re a creative problem-solver and want to create a compelling experience for thousands of users, then come be a part of our growing team!


    Responsibilities

    As the first dedicated product designer at Retrium, you’ll help us establish the design processes we’ll use going forward. This means you’ll need to understand the business context, customers, and technical constraints and their impact on design in addition to being a great designer. You’ll work closely with both the engineering and business teams to advocate for design in strategic product decisions and oversee the UI design implementation, so communication and collaboration will be key in this role.

    Because you’ll own everything related to design, you’ll need to be well versed in customer research, so that you can share your concepts and get feedback from our users. You’ll translate our product’s mission and these customer research insights into an engaging and simple interface for our retrospective platform. In this role, your goal will be to continuously improve the user experience of our application, so that customers can easily adopt, understand, and interact with our product.

    Day-to-day, you’ll be responsible for creating mockups, user flows, sketches, wireframes, diagrams, customer journey maps, and other design artifacts needed to guide the product development process. The ability to take ideas from low-fidelity outlines to high-fidelity designs using Sketch, Invision, Figma, Framer, or other relevant tooling, is a big part of this role.

    Because our core values include “Default to Autonomy”, “Bias for Action”, and “Level Up”, you’ll need to be a self-starter who can brainstorm possibilities, execute tasks, and lead the implementation of major features and changes to the product. If you want a job that’s integral to a company’s expansion and growth and where there’s opportunities to learn and make a real impact, then this role is for you!


    Skillset

    More than anything else, we’re looking for a self-motivated person who is passionate about designing a great user experience within Retrium.

    We believe that the following collection of experiences and abilities would make someone successful in this position. However, we encourage anyone with 5 or more years of professional experience as a Product Designer, UX Designer, or Front-End Engineer to apply.

    - A portfolio of relevant design work that you’re proud to share that includes digital products, not just websites

    - A history of successfully shipping products and collaborating cross-functionally with both software engineers and business stakeholders

    - The passion and drive to learn about Retrium and our customers

    - A growth mindset with an openness to feedback, learning, and experimentation

    - Experience with Agile software development processes, from problem definition through to detailed UI and visual design

    - Experience designing a B2B SaaS product is strongly preferred

    - Experience in a distributed team and/or high-growth startup would be helpful


    Benefits

    We provide amazing benefits, and if you ask the team, they’ll tell you that the greatest benefits we offer employees are the ability to make a meaningful contribution to the company and the opportunities to “Listen. Learn. Teach”, another core value.

    Our other benefits include:

    - Competitive salary and equity in a fast-growing, funded startup

    - Health, dental, and vision insurance coverage for you and your family

    - Unlimited and minimum vacation policy (we encourage you to ask us about this!)

    - Flexible, sustainable work hours

    - Work from home or a co-working office

    - All the equipment you need to do your job

    - Continuing education and learning opportunities

    - Annual company retreats


    Additional Information

  • Founded in 2008, BeerMenus' mission is simple: we exist to help grow the craft beer market.

    We serve as craft beer's marketplace, where over 6.7 million beer lovers and 47,802 beer retailers meet. We drive craft beer growth by making craft beer more available and accessible: if you’re looking for craft beer, we help you find it. If you sell craft beer, we help you promote your selection, both on and off-premises.

    We invented our space in 2008 and continue to innovate with recent launches including recommendations / where to go now, arrival recommendations, and powering online beer presales for breweries.

    We're an independent, self-funded company that loves what we do, so we're in it for the long haul. Craft beer isn't going anywhere and neither are we.

    We're looking for product designers who enjoy wearing many hats: from product strategy, to customer experience and design details, all the way to front-end implementation (HTML and CSS). We expect you to have highly polished visual design and typography skills.

    You'll have opportunities to design experiences for craft beer fans, beer sellers, and breweries across a variety of platforms (web, iOS, Android, print, digital signage).

    We expect you to be empathetic, customer focused, self-directed, to enjoy craft beer, and to be able to give and receive thoughtful, direct feedback.

    You will work with a distributed, small, and extremely passionate BeerMenus team.

    Next Steps

    We're currently looking for people who have 10-20 hours available per week to work with us on a freelance basis. We use hourly rates when we work with freelancers to avoid the pitfalls of trying to predict how long projects will take, and to encourage as much iteration as needed.

    After you apply, we'll get in touch to set up an interview if we think you could be a good fit. After the interview stage, we'll start with a small freelance project to see if we're happy working together. If we're both excited to continue working together, we'll start working on larger projects and ask you to allocate 10-20 hours per week to working with us.

    If this sounds exciting, please apply here https://beermenus.typeform.com/to/JHEH0U. We can't wait to hear from you!
