💎 Senior Product Designer

We’re looking for a talented, customer-obsessed, designer to lead all things product.

Hi there! 👋

We’re CodeGem – a venture-backed startup obsessed with helping software teams work better.

CodeGem brings together the tools engineering teams need to fuel growth, foster collaboration, and ship faster.

We’re funded and backed by top investors like GarageCapital, CapitalT, and several notable serial entrepreneurs/tech leads.At a little over year old, CodeGem is growing fast. We’re working with top companies like EA, Okra, SnapCommerce, and more.

We’re looking for a talented, customer-obsessed, designer to lead all things product (wearing lots of hats!). This is a unique opportunity for an experienced designer who is ready to make their mark and help us define the future of work for engineering team everywhere.

You’ll work directly with our founder and CEO and will have the opportunity to make an enormous impact on our company and product.

You

  • You’re obsessed with customers and love talking and building close relationships with users
  • You thrive in a fast-paced, startup environment. You’re looking to take the lead on large initiatives, can balance competing priorities, and love rapid iteration and experimentation.
  • You’re a swiss army knife of design. UX, UI, motion, brand – you can and want to do it all
  • You love working through big ideas but obsess over the smallest details (subpixels)
  • You focus on the psychology of users, constantly leverage research and studies, and dive deep into user analytics to heavily influence product decisions.
  • You are fluent with tools like ProuctBoard, Figma, FullStory, and MixPannel, and have strong opinions on how to use them effectively.
  • You love thinking in motion and have at least an interest in video/animation
  • You’re highly motivated, entrepreneurial-minded, and are a team player
  • You have experience designing dashboards, actionable analytics and are interested in engineering, people, and team metrics.

The Job

  • You'll shape CodeGem’s product as a whole, working directly with the founder and owning the full product design life cycle; from talking to users, rapidly producing multiple concepts and prototypes, and validating delightful user experiences.
  • You’ll be the champion of our users. Analyzing competitors, researching solutions, monitoring usage, gathering feedback, and validating designs to surface new ideas and areas for improvement.
  • We use CodeGem at CodeGem! You’ll use what you design and talk with others while they are using it. As our user champion, you will drive CodeGem’s product backlog and work closely with the team to define the future of our product.
  • You’ll be the master coach and voice of CodeGem; working with users to improve our copy, our onboarding, and support both in and out of CodeGem.

The Perks

  • A chance to shape a company going after a $50B opportunity
  • Salary and generous stock options – we want you to feel like an integral part of the success and growth of the company
  • Option to work in-person in an [awesome startup space Velocity (Downtown Kitchener, ON)](https://velocityincubator.com/program-structure-experience/velocity-space/) or remote in our virtual gather.town office!
  • Work with highly motivated, talented, fun, and creative people
