Job: Product Designer at Greenfield Labs

Posted: August 29th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Jobs | Tags: | No Comments »

Zenreach was created to solve one of the most important problems in the modern economy — the majority of our time is being spent online, yet over 90% of purchasing still happens offline  —  and there is no link between the two systems. Brick-and-mortar merchants are working decades behind their online counterparts without essential data and tools. We created Zenreach to give them the same level of technology and transparency that anyone operating online has come to expect.

Position Summary

Greenfield Labs, the Zenreach R&D lab in Kitchener, Ontario, is seeking a highly-motivated mid-senior level UI/UX designer to help create and maintain Zenreach’s core product. An ideal candidate has the ability think about experiences holistically which means you have a good balance between technical knowledge, research abilities, problem-solving skills, and awesome visual design/interaction skills.

Zenreach is backed by leading investors with decades of experience in building enterprise hardware and software. We were also featured as one of the top breakout startups of 2017! Interested in closing the loop between the online and offline worlds? Join us!

What you’d be doing

You’ll join a small but mighty design team and have the opportunity to shape the design function as we continue scaling the business. You’ll have the responsibility of partaking and leading a full cycle design process, from research and developing initial wireframes/flows to creating magnificent visual designs, all while maintaining a user-centered design mindset. You’ll be spending a great amount of time with your good friends Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop, and the prototyping tools of your choice.

  • You’re extremely fluent in working with Sketch, Adobe Creative Suite, and various prototyping tools
  • You’re self motivated with a positive attitude and always consistently looking for ways to improve our product
  • In addition to your design-thinking skills, you also have great soft skills and want to help cultivate our company culture
