- San Francisco
Here’s what you’ll do as part of our team:
- Shape a big, meaningful product. Contribute to the planning of a massively impactful website—enabling scores of weekly victories worldwide—in a team small enough for your personal contributions to be seen.
- Solve big problems. How can everyday people start social movements? How can technology shape government and social policy?
- Work with great people. Collaborate start-to-finish in a product team, joining a product manager, researcher and engineers with whom you’ll understand, ideate and learn; grow with a supportive design team unabashedly nerdy about craft and finding the best solutions wherever they come from.
- Carry designs from problems to prototypes to features that ship. Change.org product teams work together from the outset of a goal to seeing polished features regularly deployed to millions of people. This collaborative arrangement requires versatile product designers who like research and discovery, broad generation of UX possibilities, a good sense of brand and copy, and proficiency to assist engineers with clean front-end implementation.
- Conduct product discovery with, and sometimes without the support of a User Researcher. Investigate how a problem has been addressed elsewhere; identify common UX patterns and practices; ask questions and proactively research the qualitative and quantitative data that will help you answer them.
- Find the best design, where it comes from: generate lots of possibilities, seek lots of feedback, and present the rationale behind the options you think work best.
- Participate in developing the Change.org CSS and component styleguide, which exists in the codebase (like Twitter Boostrap) and is collectively maintained by the design team
- Wake up excited to work. You’re building the world's largest platform for social change, empowering people everywhere to create the change they want to see.
And here are the skills & experience we hope you have:
- You’ve worked with a consumer web product (bonus if you also have experience working with internationalization and cross-device web apps).
- You’re concerned with details and the craft of design, bringing age-old principles of good design to the modern web; irked, for example, when line-heights hurt readability. Above all you believe good form follows good function.
- From Adobe Illustrator to Sketch to whatever you think does the job best, you’re tool agnostic, happy to learn new ones, and have enough front-end (HTML/CSS/JS) familiarity to collaborate with engineers on your team.
- You’re a driven communicator who loves to work with people, and you’re ready to lead design on your product team in the context of a cohesive overall UX.
Change.org is the fastest growing social change organization in the world, empowering more than 50 million people to create change in their communities.
We are building a world-class team of technologists and creatives along with the most accomplished team of social movement creators in the world.
