As a Product Designer, you will understand the needs of our sellers and help elevate the design practices throughout our teams. You will have an acute visual eye and be able to craft interfaces that solve problems, engage and delight our sellers. And if you’re passionate about breaking complex problems down into simple and seamless user journeys then this is the place for you!
Itemize team will be a cross-functional team made up of Tech, Product, and Design and you will own the design process together, working in close partnership with members of the research, tech, data, and product on our key initiatives.
We believe design acts as a bridge between product and technology, so we expect you to understand the needs of our sellers and balance these with our business goals and technical feasibility – striking the right balance between speed of delivery and quality of output. As a result, you should be able to work at different levels of fidelity depending on the context – whether that’s demonstrating to the organization what is possible before it’s built or shipping products to the world that our sellers love.

- Experience working with digital design in cross-functional teams.
