Job Position: Product Designer

Job Location: Lekki Phase 1, Lagos

Job Description

  1. We’re looking for a Product Designer to design in teams working across core parts of our customer-facing experience.
  2. We care deeply about inclusive working practices. We’re keen to ensure we’re designing a product that works for everyone, so we particularly encourage expertise with all product design knowledge.

Job Responsibilities

  1. You’ll lead design for a product area. This includes driving the future vision of this area, making sure it compliments a cohesive overall software product designing, and delivering on incremental steps to help the team head in this direction.
  2. You’ll be embedded in a cross-functional product squad. You’ll be responsible for all design artifacts produced; from initial discovery and user journey mapping through to the execution of final UI design details.
  3. You’ll deeply understand the products you’re designing. Whether it’s joining user research sessions, learning from previous insights, reading data reports or running your lightweight research and analysis, you’ll strive to understand the what, why, and how of the problems you’re solving to ensure we don’t just ship the ‘thing right’, but we ship the ‘right thing’.
  4. You’ll collaborate regularly using strong communication, documentation and facilitation skills. You’ll work closely with Developers, Data scientists and content writers to make sure your team isn’t just shipping great designs, but they are deeply involved throughout the design process.
  5. You’ll execute (and advocate for) polished, intuitive and accessible user experiences. You’re pragmatic and able to balance the ideal experience with knowing user technical constraints, experimentation strategy etc.
  6. You’ll help raise the bar for design at Wazobia Technologies. We’re a small but mighty team where every designer plays a critical role in improving our community of practice – whether that’s through improving our craft skills to leading rituals to giving great feedback.
  7. You’ll regularly work with a design team and product leadership. This is to help make sure long-term strategy, business goals and experience quality are all in alignment and that there are healthy opportunities for visibility and feedback.

You should apply if;

  1. Interested candidates should possess relevant qualifications with at least 3 years experience.
  2. You’ve led the design of top product launches in a fast-growing company before.

  4. You’re passionate about inclusive design and accessibility, and you’ll design with all our users in mind.
  5. You care about the UI design details but are also comfortable zooming out, seeing the broader picture and connecting the dots to create a cohesive overall experience.
  6. You’re familiar with native mobile design patterns on Android and iOS and have designed polished apps for both platforms
  7. You’re passionate about sharing your knowledge, and raising the bar for design practice at Wazobia. Previous experience mentoring designers is a big plus.
  8. You understand that writing is designing, you’re a confident writer, and the copy in your screens is never an afterthought.
  9. You are highly skilled with Adobe Suite applications
  10. You have a good eye for designs and understand how to design Ui for all screens (responsive).

This isn’t for you if:

  1. You need top-down direction- We operate extremely autonomously so you’ll be expected to determine the highest impact areas to work on, collaborating with stake holders and manager to ensure there’s alignment.
  2. You need to work directly alongside another designer or two-While we work closely as a team and have rituals to encourage collaboration and feedback. We rarely have the luxury of multiple designers working on the same product squad.
  3. You haven’t worked in a cross-functional, multi-disciplinary product team shipping work to a large scale customer-base-All designers are expected to be involved in the delivery details, everything from finessing UI polish with developers through to roll-out and experimentation strategy.
