About You

You are a seasoned 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 design you consider the entire experience rather than only screens. You've navigated the complexities of software development organizations, and can facilitate discussions to challenge assumptions, give critical feedback, and create consensus. Most importantly, you're an excellent communicator, creative problem solver, and someone who is ready to dive into a dynamic environment to drive design. In addition to being passionate about technology and designing products that millions of people love, you're enthusiastic about SoundCloud and the music space.

  • 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 res't until an excellent and solid feature can be shipped.
  • You are able to quickly draft multiple iterations for an idea with sketches, wireframes, and storyboards
  • Bonus: background in prototyping, visual/ui, and motion design
