AES Job Board
iZotope, Inc. - Product Designer
Posted On: 2013-10-1
Location: Cambridge, MA, USA
iZotope is seeking Product Designers to help us craft innovative products that inspire and enable our customers to be creative.
The ideal candidate is a self-motivated, ambitious and creative individual, who possesses the drive to design the most excellent products for our customers. Being able to work collaboratively with Product Managers and with product teams is a must.
During each development sprint, the Product Designer will lead a design review where he/she will actively solicit feedback and critique from team members and stakeholders. The candidate, therefore, must be able to hear and accept criticism, while being ultimately responsible for the design decisions and quality of the product as it applies to product release and design goals.
Ever curious and outgoing, the Product Designer is a perpetual student of design, thriving on learning from customers, and from competitive products and colleagues to design products that will inspire and enable customers to be creative. To that extent, 10%-15% domestic and international travel is expected.
To be in a position to better understand, appreciate and anticipate our customers’ needs and wants, candidates for the Product Design role at iZotope should already be familiar with – or ideally, customers of – products in in one or more our target markets: music production, post production / audio for video, live sound, music performance, and DJ.
Unlike an iZotope Product Manager, who is focused on the “why” the company should develop a product, the iZotope Product Designer is more focused on the “how”, developing compelling user experiences and workflows within the implementation of a product, inspired by its target customer personas.
We favor candidates with the following skills and experiences:
• A minimum of 3 years of relevant experience in one or more of our target markets
• Familiarity with wireframing / workflow tools, and a proficiency with Photoshop
• Detail focused, on the healthy side of being a perfectionist
• Tends toward minimalist approaches – simplify, simplify, simplify
• Has experience with usability testing with current and potential customers
• Has experience conducting customer interviews to understand pain points
• Has experience working with Product Owners to develop features and workflows from user stories
• Has experience directing the work of graphic / UI designers.
• Not required, but is a plus if the candidate has the skills to deliver final graphic assets to product developers.
This position is full-time and requires the candidate to work at our office in Cambridge, MA.
