Description

We’re hiring our second product designer, someone that will shape our product in a significant way. You'll be working closely with our Head of Product on imagining the future of synthetic media. You'll be a part of a small, humble and driven product team of talented engineers.

Working on Studio, our flagship product,is exciting. It's a creative tool, used by 1000s (from freelancers to content creators working in Fortune 500 companies) of passionate users on a daily basis. They love and depend on it, they also provide us a ton of feedback. That level of engagement is rare and it’s a constant source of motivation to see and hear from our users how much of a difference the product makes for them.  From a design perspective, you’ll get to tackle complex and novel problems, figuring a path to market for synthetic media, a very recent technology, for which the limits and use cases are constantly expanding.

As a Product Designer, you will help us create a name for Synthesia Studio as one of the best designed SaaS tools out there. You'll have a chance to solve our most important UX problems and shape the future - from the initial idea stage to the final execution. You’ll have the satisfaction to work with a team that ships fast and iterates quickly, allowing us to learn from our customers and adapt.

Speaking about learning from the customers 🤔  We’ve built a database of customer interviews, with full recordings and transcripts organized in a Notion database. We run a Slack and a Facebook community where we engage with our most passionate users. Our sales team constantly relay to us customer stories of how the product is put to use. All this is to say, we walk the talk when it comes to putting the user first and building our roadmap around real needs.

You will get to work in a small team that is still being built, giving you an opportunity to help shape our design culture and vision. If you’ve worked at previous companies thinking there’s a better way to do product & design, this is your chance to shape things from the start.
