Product Designer


What's next in music is first on SoundCloud. As the world’s largest open audio platform, SoundCloud is powered by a connected community of creators and listeners who share, discover and influence what’s new, now and next in music and audio. Our Product Design team creates and shapes those experiences that serve hundreds of millions of users. We’re now on the lookout for a Product Designer to join our team.

The Role

You’ll work in close collaboration with other Product Designers, Engineers, and Product Managers to meet the needs of SoundCloud listeners and creators on web and mobile. We expect you to take ownership of your features from the early strategy and concept phases to the final implementation and following iterations.


About You

You are a passionate product designer and a great storyteller. You speak the language of users and are able to define their journey through a system from start to finish. When thinking about the design, you consider the entire experience rather than only individual screens. You can participate in discussions to challenge assumptions, give critical feedback, and create consensus. Beyond being passionate about technology and designing products that millions of people love, you’re enthusiastic about SoundCloud and the music space.


Requirements

  • A background in designing user experiences and interaction design for digital consumer products and working with cross-functional teams.
  • A strong online portfolio that demonstrates your process and ability to turn ideas into a convincing and unique creative vision.
  • You see communication as a big part of your daily work. You’re not only interested in input from developers, users and everybody else, but you’re able to ask questions, give feedback and critique your peers’ design solutions.
  • Excellent presentation skills and communication abilities.
  • Holistic understanding of design. You’re eager to understand the underlying problem and are able to work out concepts and ideas that are addressing the real issues.
  • You enjoy working on a product from start to end and you won’t rest until an excellent and solid feature can be shipped.
  • You are able to quickly draft multiple versions of an idea with sketches, wireframes, and storyboards.
