Head of UX & Design
Claritas is a young software company, building the future of cryptocurrency portfolio management. The founding team, based in New York, is seeking a Head of UX Design to lead all aspects of its product design.
As the successful candidate, you will hold overall responsibility for our user-experience across a range of websites, applications and mobile products. You'll need to be both an executor and a manager, initially focused on taking our product to market from the ground up and creating a strong set of guiding design principles and interactions. Simultaneously, you will begin building a high performing team around you that will deliver our product to all manner of screens, worldwide.
You will be defining the overall creative workflow, tools, and processes that we employ internally while overseeing the all creative aspects of the user experience, so you'll need to have a background of leading a creative team and managing resources effectively in a highly collaborative agile startup environment.
The nitty gritty
You'll be working on financial & investment-oriented applications, so you'll need to strongly empathize with the world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency investments. But we're not a stuffy, corporate group, and we want to see your fresh ideas to disrupt the scene, making life radically simpler for the user, while offering them more power, and delighting them with an experience that works how they want.
Localization will be a part of the job, so you'll also need to work with our international team(s) on how to customize, translate, and tweak our interfaces for different countries and languages.
Your peers will be the heads of Engineering, Business Development, Product, Marketing, and Operations. You will be a part of the core team building out an innovative new product in one of the most rapidly growing markets, and you'll be expected to be an expert-level collaborator and a well-rounded thinker who will contribute to the overall product strategy on a daily basis.
Experience: Must have had overall responsibility for delivering a suite of digital applications in a B2C environment (startup experience preferred).
Leadership: Must have directly managed teams of designers across multiple projects, with a strong, verifiable track-record of delivery and a portfolio that says "I care" about the customer.
Location: Must be able to work on-site in New York as part of a collaborative team (though there is some flexibility for remote work occasionally and we would expect you to help develop a culture around this within your team)
