Job Description

What's next in music is first on SoundCloud. As the world’s largest open audio platform, SoundCloud is powered by a connected community of creators and listeners who share, discover and influence what’s new, now and next in music and audio. Our Product Design team creates and shapes those experiences that serve hundreds of millions of users. We’re now on the lookout for an experienced Product Designer to join our team.

About the role

You will work in close collaboration with Product Managers, Engineers, UX Researchers, Data Scientists, and other Product Designers in the Growth & Commerce team to meet the needs of SoundCloud listeners and creators on the web, mobile, and beyond. We expect you to take ownership of your experiences from the early strategy and concept phases to the implementation and following iterations. You speak the language of users and will define their journey through a system from start to finish. You will participate in discussions to challenge assumptions, give critical feedback, and create consensus.

Responsibilities

  • Define user experiences that drive performance with a key focus on conversion to paying customers, retention, and ads strategy
  • Partner with peers in your team to set clear objectives and an execution strategy
  • Contribute to high-level strategic decisions with the rest of the product and executive teams
  • Draft and iterate on multiple solution proposals for a problem through storyboards, sketches, wireframes, and prototypes
  • Collaborate with UX research, Product Management, Data Science, Engineering, and Business stakeholders to ensure a smooth product development process
  • Understand and determine the level of fidelity required for our features and ensure we’re prioritizing our efforts effectively
  • Ownership of experiences from the early concept phase to the final implementation
  • Communicate and align expectations within your team and stakeholders

Requirements/skills

  • A strong online portfolio that demonstrates your process and ability to turn ideas into a convincing and unique creative vision
  • A background in designing user experiences and interaction design for digital consumer products and working with cross-functional teams
  • Strong analytical, data-driven decision making and problem-solving skills and the competence to balance business growth and customer problems
  • Strategic product thinking and vision experience
  • Ability to provide the rationale and trade-offs for your solution proposals 
  • Communication is a big part of your daily work. You’re not only interested in input from users, developers and everybody else, but you’re able to ask questions, give feedback and critique your peers’ design solutions
  • A holistic understanding of design. You are eager to understand the underlying problem and able to work out concepts and ideas that are addressing the real issues
  • You can deliver larger projects reliably, coordinate with other design team members and delegate when needed
  • You enjoy working on a product from start to end and you won’t rest until a solid experience is shipped. At the same time, you are able to align this expectation with an iterative product development process and respective trade-offs
  • You are a passionate product designer and a great storyteller
  • You are comfortable leading design sprints and/or creative workshops
  • In your design process, you consider the entire experience rather than individual views
  • You have excellent presentation skills and communication abilities
