Come help us shape the future of WIRED.
The Global Product & Technology team at Condé Nast is looking for a Senior Product Designer to focus on WIRED’s global digital experience.
You will partner closely with product, engineering, research, marketing, analytics, and editorial teams to help shape the publication’s digital presence as we continue to expand our offerings.
As a Senior Product Designer, you’re inspired by big-picture problem solving and honing your craft. You are a critical thinker and a storyteller who is able to transform ambiguous problem spaces into clear and actionable design solutions.
What you’ll do:
Work with product, design, and engineering to create an experience that increases reader engagement, builds loyalty, and drives subscriber growth
Collaborate with our user research team to qualitatively understand and improve all aspects of the user journey—from anonymous reader to paying subscriber—via research and testing
Partner with our platform teams to introduce new components and functionality into our global design system
Cultivate relationships with WIRED’s editorial and creative teams to elevate and articulate the brand vision.
Create clarity in undefined yet complex problem spaces
Support high-level product strategy, ensuring we’re asking the right questions and solving for actual user and business needs
Collaborate with a distributed engineering team to implement the features you and your team design, and ensure quality output
Experience designing, launching, and iterating on high-quality, user-centered web and mobile products
Familiarity and experience with hypothesis-driven design, as well as qualitative and quantitative testing; a data-driven mindset
Deep expertise in visual design and interaction design, with the ability to enhance aesthetics
Experience with rapid prototyping, iterating and refining design solutions based on user feedback
Ability to draw from data to uncover behavioral insights and inform design decisions
A broad design toolkit (user journeys, wireframes, functional specs) and the experience to know when to use a particular approach
Experience working in an iterative, experimental product development cycle alongside engineers and product managers
Experience with, or a desire to learn, how to work within a globally distributed team
What we would like to see:
How you’ve designed clear and thoughtful experiences that strike a balance between user and business needs
Your process for problem-solving (rather than just polished, final design work)
How you collaborate with product managers and contribute to overall product strategy
Various types of design outputs
A strong interest in how technology and culture interact, and a desire to tackle the challenges facing journalism today
This role reports to WIRED’s Global Design Lead alongside the Head of Product for WIRED and interfaces directly with Wired's editorial, creative, and marketing teams.
