Lead Product Designer

San Francisco - Design Full Time - Salary
Bungalow is the largest and fastest growing co-living company in the United States and we’re tackling two very challenging, very human problems of our generation — housing affordability and loneliness.

Increasingly, people are moving to big cities where rents are climbing. The cost to live alone may be high but the cost of feeling alone is even higher. While the products and services we love are making our lives easier and more convenient, our relationships have suffered. That’s why Bungalow is not only focused on creating the best co-living experience for our residents, we’re also committed to cultivating a community that helps people feel at home, together.

How do we do this? We find the best homes in the best locations, we update the interiors and furnish them out, all in the service of helping people find other amazing individuals to live with. We believe that a great resident experience begins in the home and with each other, but it’s our growing community beyond the home that makes being part of Bungalow magical.

We’re looking for a strong human-centered UX designer with a passion for crafting beautiful UI to join our design team and help build an amazing experience for our growing community of residents. As a Lead Product Designer at Bungalow, you’ll be involved at every step of the product development process — from brainstorming ideas to polishing designs through launch. With your range of interaction, visual, and product thinking skills, you’ll make critical design decisions that drive our product development.

As a qualified candidate, you are comfortable with ambiguity, you’re a great communicator, and you’re a strong cross-functional partner. You uphold a high quality bar, you obsess over the details, and you’re able to take a solution from idea to implementation. You are human-centered, you approach problems holistically, and you create simple, elegant solutions to complex problems.

This is an opportunity to transform how people live, and live together. If you’re passionate about our mission, come join us!

Who we are looking for
  • 6-8 years of experience working in UX, UI, HCI, or a related field
  • Strong product thinker and collaborator with product managers and engineers
  • Highly proficient with design tools (Sketch, Figma, Adobe Creative Suite, etc.)
  • Excellent in design craft including interaction, visual, and service design
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Experience designing on multiple platforms (iOS, Android, responsive web, email)
  • Experience conducting qualitative research and usability testing
  • Experience with prototyping tools (Framer, Principle, etc.)
  • Excited to work in a fast-paced, dynamic startup environment
  • Responsibilities
  • Partner with product managers and engineers to define problems and goals
  • Design elegant interactions and experience for our residents and applicants
  • Give and solicit feedback from designers and cross-disciplinary partners
  • Execute in a fast-paced environment that’s full of ambiguity
