Job type: Full-time

Category: Design


We are Invisible’s Technologies Team. We solve problems at scale so they never happen again. At our best, we solve problems before they happen. How?

We Believe That

  • Invisible is a world-changing company and the Technologies Team is responsible for creating the systems that will launch Invisible into the stratosphere

  • Exponential gains from systems > Short term linear work > Systems for systems sake

  • Consistent feedback is key - we are addicted to learning and getting better

  • What one of us knows, all of us should know

  • Every new mistake is a learning opportunity

Because of these beliefs, we’ve built a team where

  • Distributed approaches and centralized intelligence merge. Each teammate is constantly innovating and trying something new. Every mistake is prevented by all. Every success is learned by all.

  • Each of us contains the sum of the knowledge, intelligence, and creativity of our entire team.

  • We evolve and mutate constantly like an organism, identifying successful and problematic tactics and incorporating ideas from any source.

Who We Want

  • Designers who care as much about the invisible parts of the platform as the visible.

  • Polymaths and independent thinkers

  • Someone who is unlike anyone else on the team

What Product Designers are expected to do

  • Innovation - Don’t just follow orders. Question them. Question everything. Make improvements to how we work, not just our team, but the entire company.

  • Systems thinking - Design isn’t just how something looks — it’s how it works. You will care deeply about the problems you solve with design.

  • Craftsmanship - Deliver results with pace and quality

  • Teamwork - A culture where personal and team growth thrive and we become better every single week

  • Growth - Tenaciously improve yourself day after day at an exponential rate, and bring the company with you

Specifically, a Product Designer will

  • Guide the customer’s journey through a variety of interfaces, including web, mobile, and email

  • Design complex ‘expert’ interfaces for internal users

  • Build and evolve our visual identity through active iteration over the components in our pattern library

  • Collect feedback through formal user research and apply insights back into the design process

  • Become better every day by committing to learn new technologies and consider new solutions to old problems

Requirements

  • Experience designing for the web and for mobile

  • Experience working with software development teams w/ product managers and engineers

  • A strong background in UX and focus on usability

  • High degree of fluency with HTML, CSS

  • A commitment to collaborative design

  • Experience with Figma is a plus

What to expect if you join our mission

  • -- You will work on the most important problem - We always solve the most important problem and prioritize to make effective use of our time.

  • -- You will never do the same thing twice - Do it once, learn, systematize, automate, upgrade. We are exponential.

  • -- You will never work on a problem that should have been prevented - Prioritize, execute, and prevent future problems.

  • -- You will systematize or document most things - Creating systems checks if you really understand what you're doing, allows others to analyze for improvements, and means the entire team upgrades together.

  • -- You will make mistakes - That’s okay. This is how we learn. Prevent the mistake from happening again.

  • -- You will be empowered and encouraged to act with creativity - We have no limits. Every team member is empowered to upgrade our collective intelligence with new ideas. Act with moxie. Act with creativity. Act with inspiration.

    About Headway

    Founded in 2015, Headway was born out of a passion to bring entrepreneurial ideas to market and keep them there. We work holistically with our client partners as a true extension of their product team, not just as the technical execution arm of their business. If we see something broken, whether that's a workflow, a marketing or messaging strategy, or a needless feature, we speak up, and our clients trust us to help them fix it.

    Because we're more than just designers and developers, we achieve results that bring successful long-term partnerships and trusted referrals. We help entrepreneurs build a business ―not just an app. This approach, coupled with realistic and incremental software releases, results in a friendly, fun, and collaborative atmosphere where our colleagues and clients both have room to learn and grow.

    See how our clients talk about our approach and check out some of the recognition we've received so far. Discover how we show our clients appreciation with unique holiday gifts each year. Or, if you're a podcast fan, check out Seaworthy, where we explore ways to help companies grow and scale their business and ideas. We're excited about what we've achieved in the last few years, but we're just getting started. We need your help to take us to the next level!

    A Day In The Life

    During a typical work week, our crew members enjoy a balanced assignment of 35 hours on client projects with the ability to invest the other 5 hours on a combination of individual goals and team meetings. Each quarter, we take a full week away from client work to focus on team goals and internal project initiatives. These weeks alternate between a retreat style destination that encourages team bonding and goal setting, and a more focused week-long design and development sprint at our primary office in Wisconsin. Check out some of our team week recaps and years in review to get a feel for how much fun it is to work at Headway!

    What Does Success Look Like?

    During your first 2-4 weeks at Headway, you'll receive extensive on the job training including a customized trail of technical assessments and assignments. This training covers fundamentals of our core technologies, the way we delegate tasks within a development team, our git process and workflow, testing strategies, tips for successful client interactions, and much more.

    You'll have dedicated pairing time scheduled with various colleagues to cover different skills, and we'll even participate in several mock client meetings so your first standup or sprint planning meeting doesn't carry with it the weight of your first client interaction. After this training period, you'll be successfully contributing to new feature work on a client project in the context of a team. You'll also be participating in daily standups, sprint planning meetings, and retrospectives. Welcome aboard!

    Ongoing Support

    Each week, you'll meet with your team lead to ensure that you have the time and attention you need to be successful. Your needs and questions will always come first in this meeting, but other topics discussed include:

    • Individual quarterly goal progress

    • Project status / team issues / weekly retro

    • Individual responses to our weekly team health questionnaire

    Quarterly and Annual Reviews

    In addition to weekly touch point meetings, more formal quarterly reviews are scheduled to discuss successes and areas for growth identified over the last 3 months. We have annual performance assessments and salary reviews, though we reserve the right to provide a merit based pay raise at any time. Most crew members achieve between a 2% and 5% raise each year within their same role, but bigger jumps are possible when roles or responsibilities increase. We're here to grow with you sustainably over the long term.

    Experience and Results At Every Level

    With an experienced leadership team encompassing design, development, sales, marketing, and operations, Headway is poised for an amazing 2019. Our business is guided by EOS and we have strong processes, documentation, and people to support your growth and development at Headway.
