As a member of a small team, you will have a real impact on how the Last.fm product develops, looks and works – identifying issues and framing solutions through great design. The ideal candidate would have a history of maintaining and creating new user interface patterns, interactions, and user flows for responsive sites. You would also be comfortable working collaboratively with various teams to create design solutions as well as testing and gathering data on your work.

Key Responsibilities

  • Work closely and collaboratively across teams to understand user goals and business goals to create design deliverables that best suit those needs.
  • Create appropriate design deliverables for each project (for example, wireframes, prototypes and mock-ups) and iterate based on feedback.
  • Responsible for design across multiple platforms and mediums (web, email, desktop apps, mobile apps), with sign-off in both internal and external projects.
  • Lead design projects across the entire product lifecycle.
  • Maintain and represent the Last.fm brand at a high standard through design guidelines, marketing material, brand collateral, etc.
  • Develop and conduct user research and testing to gather qualitative data for design decisions.
  • Key role in the long-term evolution of Last.fm as a product and service.

Skills & Experience

The ideal candidate will:

  • have 4+ years’ experience in UI/UX with a strong portfolio.
  • have extensive experience with:
    • designing responsive, multi-device web interfaces and user flows
    • developing wireframes and wireflows
    • rapid prototyping features
    • information architecture
    • industry standard software (for example, Sketch, InVision) and providing deliverables (for example, wireframes, prototypes, mockups)
    • conducting user engagement and competitor analysis
    • take full ownership of work and be comfortable working autonomously: while the position is part of the Product team, the role is as sole designer (with remote design support from the design team in San Francisco at our parent company, CBS). The candidate for this role must be confident in their work and able to work collaboratively with other teams.
  • know when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.
  • have good knowledge of modern front-end development (HTML/CSS/JS) and performance techniques on mobile, desktop and mobile apps.
  • have experience working with user stories and delivering against product requirements and hitting deadlines.
