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

We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer, and welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
