Lead Product Designer

Job description

We’re in the process of transforming design at Yelp and searching for a Lead Product Designer ready to take the next step in their career.

Where You Come In:

- Be a champion of our users, and act as an expert of design thinking in the organization.
- Own large, cross-team projects from concept to completion collaborating closely with cross-functional leaders.
- Build business context to prioritize your work and identify new opportunities that best position Yelp to execute on its goals.
- Take an active interest in developing the careers of others through coaching and mentorship.
- Champion changes that enable strong growth and execution of Yelp Product Design.
- Build community internally, seek group success over your own, and advocate for Yelp’s values.

What it Takes to Succeed:
- Ideally 7+ years experience in using design practices and skills that result in high quality work.
- Know how to thoughtfully design complex products for scale working with an evolving design system.
- Are a strong communicator, clearly articulating project information to cross-functional stakeholders across multiple teams.
