Senior Product Designer

Job description

BigCommerce’s mission is to help merchants sell more at every stage of growth, from small startups, to mid-market businesses to large enterprises. We focus on being the best ecommerce platform so our customers can focus on what matters most: growing their businesses.

We are equally passionate about growing our employee’s careers and providing them an incredible experience as we rapidly expand across the globe. We are proud to have been  recognized numerous times  for our product and workplace culture. We empower our people and customers to build, innovate and grow, so together we can redefine the ecommerce industry.

Product designers at BigCommerce are part of the entire product development process, from concept to launch. They work closely with product managers, UX researchers, and engineers to build end to end solutions by understanding the customer problem, iterating on solutions, and shipping finished products. As a Senior Product Designer at BC you will have autonomy to shape the products you work on, while being able to learn from and collaborate with a team of seasoned designers.  

As a Senior Product Designer you enjoy influencing product strategy as much as translating complex workflows into intuitive user experiences. At BigCommerce, we are building an ecosystem so our merchants can easily add third party apps that support their unique needs when it comes to selling their products anywhere. 

You will craft experiences that will enable our merchants and their businesses to flourish and succeed. You will have a unique opportunity to work on products such as  the developer and app experience, app permissions and our design system (BigDesign), which will directly enhance the BC  platform.


What you’ll do: 

  • Collaborate with product management and engineering to identify product direction, feature set and behaviors for your product area.

  • Understand the merchant and developer problem sets, competitor solutions in the market and trends in e-commerce.

  • Run user interviews and validation of designs, in partnership with product management and user research. 

  • Create flows, sketches, prototypes, wireframes, and high fidelity mockups to communicate concepts, solicit feedback, and validate solutions; facilitate an aligned vision among your team and partners.

  • Collaborate with other designers on the best usage and evolution of patterns, ensuring our solutions are consistent and familiar.

  • Partner with the product manager to constantly define and improve success metrics with experiments and optimizations.

  • Partner with the product manager and engineering to iterate towards improvements upon each release.

  • Naturally curious . You're innovative, extremely creative and constantly looking for ways to tweak and optimize processes.

  • Pragmatic . You appreciate the latest design trends but can easily filter out what is and isn’t useful to your audience. You can look at your design solution and determine what is integral to the experience and what are ‘bells and whistles’.

  • User-centered . You care deeply about your users and take extra steps to ensure your designs are addressing their problems.

  • Seasoned . You’re comfortable working in a fast paced environment and understand the design process well enough to know when to employ it and when to skip steps. 

  • A utility player. You're willing to help out wherever needed.

  • Fun! You're flexible, fearless, and excited to help build something awesome.
