Product Ownership Each team member owns what they build from start to finish. We ship to production multiple times per day and keep unnecessary process to a minimum so we can maintain our pace of rapid development.
Design and Build The Product Design Team is responsible for designing, building, testing, and quite literally reinventing television, the most engaging product ever created, across web, mobile, and multiple TV platforms. Each member of our team works together on the entire product experience. It’s not uncommon to go from brainstorming backend considerations to polishing design details,from understanding how the video encoding pipeline affects performance to the different needs of different platforms. As a Product Designer, you will work throughout the development process, from developing new ideas to getting the details right. You will own the experience for a significant part of the Philo experience. We are a small, collaborative, and mighty team. We bounce ideas off each other, nerd out on the latest Figma update, and leave our egos at the door — we are looking for the next designer to level up our already very talented design team.
