About the role

Product designers at BigCommerce are members of the entire product development process, from concept to launch. They work closely with product managers, UX researchers, and engineers to build end to end solutions by identifying the customer problem, iterating on solutions, and shipping finished products. Product Designers have the ability to shape products you work on, while being able to learn from and collaborate with a team of top-notch designers.  

At BigCommerce, we are building an ecosystem so our merchants can easily integrate with a variety of third-party channels that let them sell their products anywhere. You will cultivate an understanding of customer problems and craft experiences that will enable our merchants and their businesses to flourish and succeed. You will have a unique opportunity to work on products that will enhance the BC ecosystem and greatly impact our merchants' businesses.

Who you are:

You are anxious to solve complex problems, and work enthusiastically to come up with elegant solutions that are familiar and promote ease of use. You have no qualms expressing your ideas in marker or mockup, to facilitate conversations with product managers, engineers and partners, along with gaining understanding from your target users. You explore widely, but aim towards consensus, seeking out feedback from stakeholders and users, taking it as a set of signals that present you with an opportunity to always iterate and improve your designs and the way you work.

  • Naturally curious. You have a desire to learn about technology, design, ecommerce, your users, basically anything that will make you a better designer. 
  • Pragmatic. You appreciate the latest design trends but can easily filter out what is and isn’t useful to your audience. You can look at your design solution and figure out what is integral to the experience and what are ‘bells and whistles’.
  • User-centered. You care deeply about your users and take extra steps to ensure your designs are addressing their problems, down to the last pixel.
  • Motivated. You're innovative, creative and constantly looking for ways to tweak and optimize to make things better.
  • Fun! You're flexible, confident, and excited to help build something amazing.
