About the Role:
OfferUp is looking for an experienced Director of Design. We are looking for someone with experience building, growing, and developing a high-functioning design and user research team. This person must have a great product vision and an eye for good experience design combined with a proven ability to influence executives and company leadership with strategies, ideas, and plans from problem to design concept to development.
In this role, you will:

  • #1 Be customer-obsessed. You understand that we are creating an experience and not just screens in an app.
  • Manage a team of 5-10 designers and user researchers.
  • You play a key role in leading the creation of the most personalized local shopping experience. Think of the best local “window shopping” experience you could create from your phone – and execute on it. That’s your job.
  • Help the entire company visualize where we’re headed.
  • Lead the user research team and understand how their role impacts the business.
  • Gather insights from user research, behavioral data, and stakeholder feedback to prioritize customer experience improvements.
  • Understand the end-to-end customer user experience and how all the parts come together.
  • Highly analytical and thrive on data.
  • Partner with Engineering and Product organization to execute against the product roadmap, delivering on the needs of the business

About you: (All OfferUp employees are required to receive full  Covid-19 vaccinations,  per CDC guidelines. OfferUp will review accommodation requests due to a medical reason, or because of a sincerely held religious belief.)

  • 10 years experience with 5+ years of managing and growing teams/organization.
  • 3 + years in mobile app design.
  • You have experience managing successful, fast-paced small to medium teams (5+ employees), including performance management and growing careers.
  • You have excellent communication skills at all levels and across all disciplines.
  • You are experiment-driven. You have a bias for action. You take a “good enough to test” to learn approach vs pixel perfect, too much research and opinions.
  • You have a growth mindset and are highly adaptable.
  • Be up to speed on the latest UI design patterns and practices.
  • You have original points of view around concepts and don’t simply copy others.
