Lead Product Designer

Lead Product Designer

We’re looking for a Product Designer to join our small team and make Kive an indispensable tool for every creative in the world. We care deeply about user experience and ease of use, and put significant focus on top-notch UI and interactions. We had enough of dealing with slow and clunky tools. For this, we’re looking for designers who have experience designing products and like to work closely with engineers from ideation to release, enhancing existing features and coming up with entirely new creative ways to make our users more productive.

We’re on a mission to make the world more creative and creativity more collaborative.

We genuinely believe that when creativity and technology come together, something close to magic happens. In our opinion, the intersection of creativity and tech is the most exciting space to work in – one that pushes culture and imagination forward.

In this role you will

Work in close collaboration with other engineers and designers.

Do the best work of your career and work regular hours.

Co-own the product. Have high autonomy, and take responsibility where you see the need. Make yourself indispensable to the team.

Work on a product for creatives, by creatives. We’re building the product we wish we had as creatives. You’ll probably have strong instincts for what other creatives need, but you will also be supported with granular data from how the product is used, and should bring qualitative feedback from users into your decision making.

Innovate and iterate. We are building something new, which takes innovation and experimentation, but we’re also iterating and improving existing features. You’ll get to both try bold new ideas, and refine & optimise the ones that work and are due for a second iteration. Listen to user feedback, work with an engineer together to come up with improvements and ship them.

What we offer

Competitive salary and an attractive equity program in a start-up funded by top investors Creandum (1st investor Spotify, iZettle, depop) and EQT Ventures (Einride, Sonantic). 🦄

An opportunity to join an early-stage company and influence how we build the company before there are too many processes and structures in place.

A learning environment, with interesting challenges to solve and an ambitious team to support you.

A flexible work setup – work from home or join us in the office located in the heart of Stockholm.

You'll be a great fit if

You’re product and UX-minded. You have a sense for great user experience and feel when something is off. You care deeply about efficient product flows and how the things you build make people feel. You enjoy thinking about brand personality, but put user experience before brand expression.

You’re a product and design enthusiast. You’re curious about new products and often try things out before your friends do. You take note when you find interesting design solutions in the wild. You draw inspiration from the analogue world too, and paging through a well-designed book can makes you excited.

You have experience working with digital interfaces. You enjoy using Framer or Figma in your day-to-day work.

You’re productive, create quality design and direct yourself in day-to-day work. We release updates to production every day. You can break down big projects in small deliverables. You care about the outcome and take a pragmatic approach to deliver it. You value feedback, but don’t need to be told what to do, and are proactive picking up work yourself.
