Design is at the core of everything we do.
This means that product designers hold a great deal of influence and responsibility for the direction and performance of the company.
Our CEO has personally designed all of our products since launch. This is unsustainable as we scale, but means that design thinking goes all the way to the top.
With that in mind we're looking for incredible designers with business nous to take the reins and build out a creative team as we head into the most exciting period of product development so far; designing for the era of AI.
It's a brilliant time to join. The path ahead centres on fulfilling data science requirements with beautifully intuitive UX, but extends out to the creation and evolution of a completely new visual identity and consumer brand.
We've set ourselves the challenge of turning the traditional 2-hour manual process of making something from your photos into a few minutes of pleasure; effortlessly compiling an emotional product without stress, anxiety or confusion.
Although we've got some great metrics already, we've only scratched the surface in terms of our roadmap.
Over the next year we want to develop an entirely new visual identity, a brand new website, the next generation of our mobile apps, a coherent direction for advertising creatives (both in graphics and in video), a complete overhaul of our CRM strategy, and create useful content for our customers.
New designers will be empowered to take ownership and put in place processes, structures and to encourage design thinking across all members of staff, whatever their role.
We believe that design isn't just UI or UX.
Design is problem solving throughout the entire funnel and thus crosses into multiple departments in Popsa. From copywriting to understanding the technical limitations of different platforms before designing a feature, critical thinking and the ability to simulate the various scenarios is key.
Currently, we use Sketch to design our products and Zeplin as the basis for translating designs into specs. However, design software is rapidly evolving and you'll be free to use the best tool for the job.
Just don't forget the pencil. By far the best prototyping tool there is.
