Head of Product Design (m/f/d)

Vollzeit / ab sofort / Office Dresden/Berlin

Design and User Experience are at the heart of everything we do. As our Head of Product Design (m/f/d), you are leading, mentoring and driving a team of Interaction and Product Designers through an iterative design process to tackle complex tasks and challenges into intuitive, effective and delightful user experience for millions of people from around the world - whether first-time users or sophisticated experts.

Achieving this objective requires cooperation with Designers, our Research Team, Developers and Product Managers and more stakeholders throughout the entire design process - from user flows and wireframes to user interface mockups and prototypes. In each phase, it is up to you to anticipate what our users and stakeholders need, to be their voice and to make sure that the finished product surprises and delights them.

Especially in the current pandemic situation, it is important for us to protect our employees as best as possible. We regularly monitor and assess the current situation to decide whether to work fully remote or with a hybrid model, depending on the incidence. Even though we want to maintain our comprehensive home office concept in post-COVID times, a regular exchange on site with other team colleagues in our beautiful offices is very important to us. Therefore, please note that the advertised position is not a 100% remote position in the future. The advertised positions are intended for the respective locations mentioned in the job posting (Dresden, Berlin, or both).

If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to us. You can find the contact details below the job advertisements.

We work shoulder to shoulder towards our shared vision and encourage people of color, trans people, queer, gay and non-binary people, and those with disabilities to apply to join our team. Everyone is welcome at LOVOO. If you like, you can include your pronoun in your application (e.g. he, she, they).
