What was it like the last time you went apartment hunting? Probably brutal. It’s crazy that we spend 2/3 of our time in, and the majority of our hard-earned pay on, our homes, but apartment hunting is still a long and frustrating process. With Apartment List, it doesn’t have to be! We are building an easy, delightful, and effective apartment search experience that will make millions of renters’ lives better. We are looking for a Product Designer to help us create an incomparable online rental experience through a simple and delightful rental experience. If you dream of bringing amazing products to life, here is your opportunity.

Here is what you'll do as part of the team:

  • Create end to end designs for mobile apps, mobile-web, and desktop-web applications
  • Participate in all parts of the design process - research, brainstorming, sketching, wire-framing/flow creation, final visuals, and asset creation
  • Perform usability research on features, communicate findings, and propose changes to address issues found - You should be able to translate insights from user studies into meaningful actions
  • Partner with the Director of Design, Engineers, Product Analytics and Product Managers to lead project teams to success
  • Work on our Search and Discovery team product line. Design an incredible renter first experience for the core business

Here are the skills and experience you'll need to be successful:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience.
  • 4+ years of experience shipping product - you know what it means to release high-quality product at each stage of development and you can share several shining examples of real work you've shipped, and what you learned along the way
  • Strong interaction design chops - you can take broad, conceptual ideas and turn them into something useful and valuable for the millions of renters in the US
  • Passionate about users - you advocate for the best user experience that will achieve both user and business goals
  • Fearless - you create modern and innovative designs in an effort to build world-class applications that solve user’s needs and desires, and are seen as a leader by your multi-disciplinary peers
  • Mobile first - 80% of our traffic comes from mobile, which is good because you love designing for users on the go
  • Pixel perfect - you demonstrate high quality visual designs
  • Prototyping - prototyping is a key part of your toolset and you are comfortable doing so for multiple platforms

Here’s what is in it for you:

  • An opportunity with a creative, trusted, fast-growing brand in the enormous U.S. apartment rental space
  • An exceptional team: our hiring bar is absurdly high and your colleagues are talented, motivated, self-starters
