If you’re looking for a place that values strong relationships, embraces diverse ideas–all while having fun together–Grubhub is the place for you!

 

About You: You believe design is a verb, not a deliverable. We are looking for design experience in advocating for the user despite business and technical constants. This will require you to both understand the problem you are solving and execute the appropriate solution.You know (as much as you might fight it) the constraints of technology are just as important as their promise because it’s in the constraints we find our best ideas. Someone who sees the patterns in the chaos and knows how to translate those patterns into tools for the design teams. You know there’s a time for going wide, a time for going deep, and understand how to bring the product diners teams you work with through both stages. You are a thinker, a maker, and a passionate advocate for the Minimum Delightful Product approach to the mantra of “move fast and ship it."

The Impact You Will Make

  • This role requires growth-mindset collaboration with product, engineering and peers. You will need to adapt your communication appropriately in order to advocate for the user.
  • In addition to UX expertise, you have an understanding of design systems, UI design, and how micro-interactions can help users complete a task
  • Turn everything from nebulous concepts to specific ideas into useful, delightful product features
  • Design holistic systems, flows and interfaces that are simple, elegant, and beautiful
  • Lead mid-level project work from a design perspective with autonomy and authority, facilitating design working sessions to help the teams deliver the best possible solutions
  • Draw insights from the work of our talented research team and know how to turn those insights into tangible solutions
  • Build relationships and collaborate with cross-functional teams in Product, Engineering and Research to oversee the user experience of a product from conception until launch

 

***We highly encourage including a link to your portfolio (and password if applicable) demonstrating problem solving skills and high quality of design to be considered for this role***

 

What You Bring to the Table

  • At least 2 years of practical, in-house product, UI/UX design experience for an e-commerce consumer facing brand or B2B product with a focus on complex flows and use cases
  • Applied experience with service design practices and a practice of constantly evolving your design process

  • Understanding of prototyping methodologies and practices, user research methodologies and A/B test planning/execution
  • Experience designing for internal tools that support the user experience is a plus
  • A passion for sharing design strategies with fellow designers, product managers, and engineers to deliver a better, more user-centered product

  • Excellent communication and data visualization skills. You can bring internal stakeholders on your design journey and support your decisions with focus and brevity
