Product Design Director

Company: For Goodness Sake /
Location: Berkeley
Posted on: May 13, 2022

Job Description:

What if you could use your superpowers of building breakthrough product experiences to empower women? To increase confidence and joy and decrease aloneness?

To end the multi-generational cycle of sexual shame, once and for all?

Sounds pretty lofty, right?

But the resource we've created measurably and significantly has exactly those impacts.

Our flagship product is called We conduct research with tens of thousands of women, ages 18-95, and distill their wisdom about sex into a web experience. OMGYES gives people clarity about what they like and makes them realize how normal it all is.
And this has wellness benefits far outside of the bedroom.

When we feel that some of what we want is dirty or broken or shameful, it's like we're constantly holding a beach-ball under the surface of a pool. It puts us off-balance. But when we realize what we want is normal, and good, and worth pursuing, we're more likely to trust and advocate for what we want. In our social lives, in work or school, in our family lives. And this shift has numerous other wellness effects our scientists are currently studying.

It's why the Australian government is purchasing OMGYES as part of a pilot wellness program. It's why OMGYES has grown to have over 750K paid users in 12 languages. It's why Psychology Today called OMGYES, "warm, wise, tasteful and fun," The Times of London called it, "nothing less than the next wave of an unfinished sexual revolution" and Emma Watson told Gloria Steinem on stage, "I wish it had been around longer."

We're looking for a highly experienced design leader to join our company leadership team as Product Design Director.

Partner closely with others on the leadership team to clearly define and codify our visual identity system, user experience, user interface design and brand.
Contribute to strategic foundation and oversee creative expression on multiple simultaneous projects, ensuring all deliverables are brand-aligned, high quality and meeting timelines.
This is a player/coach role. Contribute directly to design as well as directing others, through all phases from strategy and research to launch and ongoing optimization.
Incorporate user research as a consistent touchstone in the product design process and comms development process.
Contribute to organization and process-design to develop systems and pipelines that will allow us to evolve our product using research insights at scale.
Develop design talent and build a thriving culture where designers grow in their careers and feel a strong sense of inclusion and belonging.
Partner closely with others on the leadership team to build the product roadmap, both short term and long-term.

You're a builder. The idea of being able to run your own team and define how it works without bureaucracy gets your imagination rolling
You work smarter, not harder or longer. You know from experience that your team is most productive when they feel rested, trusted and valued
You want to have impact. You'd feel energized getting messages from users around the world saying your product made them realize they're not alone, gave them new confidence, or saved their marriage
You believe strangers have valuable discoveries. So reading through thousands of women's discoveries about a taboo part of life sounds like a great time
You love to break down complex problems , cutting to the core of them, identifying what needs to be done, and making it happen through communication, delegation, and ingenuity
You're talented but humble. And while you have lots of terrific ideas, you also recognize how important it is for the people you manage to have ideas that get recognized.

7+ years of experience as a product designer on B2C web/app or content experience that reached mass audiences.
A player-coach approach. You like to get in and make designs, not just brief others and make decks. (You'll hire one IC Designer and partner to hire one User Researcher to begin).
Experience solving complex UX problems and ability to synthesize marketplace realities and user behaviors into strong product strategy.
Experience leading and delegating to teams where ICs feel supported and motivated and there's a healthy system of feedback and accountability.
Portfolio of elegant, minimal user-insight-driven design.

This position offers a competitive salary, a healthy work / life balance, and a great benefits package, including top-of-the-line health, dental, vision, life and gym.

We are all remote during Covid-19 and look forward to eventually returning in-person to our office in Berkeley, California. If there's a great fit, we're open to flexible work from home, fully remote work with occasional travel to work at the office alongside the team, and/or relocation assistance.
