About New York Shipping Exchange (NYSHEX)

Founded in 2015, The New York Shipping Exchange (NYSHEX) is supporting the transformation of container shipping by solving inefficiencies associated with booking downfalls and shipment rollings.

Job Description

Who we are:

Have you ever stopped to wonder how your computer, clothes, furniture or household goods made their way to your doorstep? Most likely, almost everything you own arrived here in a container on a container ship.  It is a massive industry that we all rely on but don’t think about much because it’s been done the same way for decades without much change or innovation.

NYSHEX is a well-funded Series A startup, developing a brand-new concept that will transform and enable an industry plagued with inefficiency, volatility, and $23b of economic waste annually. The NYSHEX team is passionate about collaborating with the world’s leading ocean carriers, shippers and forwarders to bring technology and innovation to this industry we love, and we hope that you’ll be part of building this new digital foundation that will have lasting effects for years to come.

You will:

  • Help build the product vision for the NYSHEX platform
  • Collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to design solutions that excite customers.
  • Participate in design sessions and build prototypes to test new concepts
  • Host design review sessions to solicit feedback and continuously improve the NYSHEX design system.
  • Build high fidelity designs and work with product and engineering to ensure a seamless handoff.

About you:

  • 5+ years of experience as a designer
  • Experience with SaaS product design and data visualization
  • Experience with full project lifecycle including new concepts, redesigns, and enhancements
  • Deep understanding of design principles and customer-centric thinking to provide consistently exceptional experiences
  • Experience working at multiple levels of an organization to understand priorities and convert to designs

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with A/B Testing
  • Experience with user research
  • Experience with FinTech and/or eCommerce startups

What you have to look forward to:

Our culture promotes a dynamic, exciting, and challenging work environment with opportunities for learning and growth. Our team is passionate about building great tech and besides being great at their jobs, are also classical musicians, surfers, gamers, and foodies.
