We believe that life is more meaningful when you have the opportunity to create your best work. When we’re coming up with great ideas and moving projects forward at pace, we’re filled with positive energy and meaning. We’re empowered to create our best work.
But when teams share files for feedback, work descends into admin hell. Comments can come from any number of tools, channels and email chains, and dealing with the feedback can turn the simplest projects into a grueling marathon.
So we’re on a mission to create a seamless approval process that helps people deliver their best work. By helping people get their best work approved, we’ll transform the finish line into a moment of joy, excitement and celebration for every file – the way it should be.
Filestage is the world’s best-rated online proofing solution. Our software is used by over 500,000 people all over the world, across hundreds of industries. We’re a growing startup in a booming market, so we’ve got an exciting journey ahead of us.
What you’ll be working on as our Product Designer
We’re looking for a Product Designer to bring our vision to life and shape a great experience for our customers.
Here are some of the things you’ll be doing in your first year at Filestage:
- You’ll play a key role in defining the future of our category-leading SaaS product. This is an opportunity to have a big impact and to shape how we simplify the daily work-life of thousands of professionals.
- You’ll be responsible for the entire product design lifecycle. You’ll carry out user research, gather insights, and develop your findings into a simple, easy-to-use interface – and you’ll also run post-release usability tests.
- You’ll collaborate with multidisciplinary teams, partnering with engineering, design, and product teammates to turn complex problems into simple and intuitive product solutions.
- You’ll develop a deep understanding of our customers through user research. You’ll take a deep dive into their pain points, needs and use cases, empowering you to make well-informed design decisions – and you’ll also get to share your thought processes and become a huge advocate for our users.
- You’ll create an outstanding experience for our customers. You’ll produce user-friendly, intuitive and delightful solutions by combining thorough design thinking with beautifully crafted UI design. You understand that simplicity is key, so you’ll iterate until you’ve found the easiest way for our users to achieve their goals.
- You’ll help to evolve our design system, translating abstract concepts into patterns of reusable interactions and components.
Life at Filestage
We believe people are more productive when they can choose their own schedule. So we’re proud to offer fully-remote roles that give you the perfect balance between work and life.
Here are some of the benefits you can look forward to at Filestage:
- Work from where you’re happiest and enjoy a flexible schedule. We’ve been fully remote from the start, giving you the opportunity to meet people all over the world and broaden your horizons.
- For this role, we are looking for someone who works in the European time zone to make sure there’s a high time overlap with our team members, customers, and partners in Asia and the Americas.
- Meet up in real life. We all travel together at least once a year (in normal times) at our team retreat to have fun and get to know each other.
- Enjoy a strong team culture. We’re a group of knowledge seekers, reflective thinkers, clear communicators, goal owners, problem solvers and team players. These are the values we strive for to help us achieve our mission.
- Join a happy team. We’ve been rated five stars on Glassdoor by our lovely team. You can take a look at our reviews here.
- Create a workspace that suits you. You’ll get €1.000 to buy whatever you need to do your best work – including a computer, webcam or standing desk.
- Get 30 days of holiday. Plenty of time for city breaks, summer escapes and everything in between.
- Make your voice heard. We trust our team members to make the best decisions to achieve their goals, so you won’t have to put up with micromanagers here.
- Say goodbye to pointless meetings. We practice what we preach when it comes to productivity, so you can expect flat hierarchies, fast iterations and no bullshit meetings.
