Location: Remote

Our mission is to create human-centered services. We’re a coalition of digital gov alums who partner with governments and mission-driven organizations to design and build digital services that improve people’s lives. We help our partners build internal, sustainable capacity to transform how they deliver services.

We are looking for a Product Designer to work on a cross-functional team — that includes our partners — to design better public services.

In this role, you will: 

  • Do user research and design in a variety of situations and across different user types to provide insights for tech and policy interventions
  • Utilize design systems to design digital products that will be used across devices
  • Champion usability and accessibility best practices
  • Work collaboratively with content strategists, researchers, product managers, and engineers to create beautiful and impactful products
  • Produce design artifacts that guide development, including mockups, wireframes, high fidelity prototypes, flowcharts, storyboards, or doodles
  • Navigate complex situations with empathy and kindness, and work to build inclusive partnership with diverse groups of people
  • Synthesize findings and formulate insights from usability testing
  • Advocate for what you see as necessary for the project and the end user
  • Jump into projects at various stages, from discovery to delivery
  • Think creatively and employ a human-centered design process

What we're looking for:

  • At least 5 years of professional experience navigating complex systems or working on public service delivery
  • At least 4 years of experience designing technology products and services
  • An adaptive, proactive, tenacious, and positive mindset

Not so little details:

This position will be a contract position that we expect will require 20-40 hours a week for the next couple months, and can start as soon as you are able. After that, we’d like to continue working together as projects and your availability allow.
