Senior Product Designer

Job description

If you read through the requirements as a checklist and haven't ticked every box, please don't rule yourself out just yet. We've seen the research that women and other people in underrepresented groups tend to only apply when the checklist is all ticks and no crosses. So if you think you have what it takes, hit that apply button.

The roles:

Due to immense growth in the Linktree Product Design team, we have multiple opportunities for Senior Product Designers to join us in the following areas:

Partnerships and Platformization - you will have knowledge and understanding of platformization and Product design within the platform space.

Insights and Recommendations - You will partner with Linktree’s strategic designer, and work closely with Data and Growth teams + insights and metrics that these teams use to drive product improvements. You will design solutions that drive users to customise their linktree one day, and insights/recommendations that explain data trends and drive user to act.

As a Senior Product Designer you will:

  • Be the primary designer in a multi-disciplinary squad and have the confidence/ability to influence squad roadmap and design direction

  • Be an end-to-end product designer, from running research to working with engineers for pixel-perfect implementation and everything in-between

  • Collaborate with key stakeholders to translate business questions into verifiable hypotheses using multi-source data and understand customer’s pain points

  • Understand the core product design process and navigate the needs of future product vision; with the ability to design realistic solutions that could be implemented in existing product/tech stack.


What we are looking for:

  • Proven background working across end to end product design process - Comfortable crafting onboarding flows one day and complex product features the next

  • Energised by problem solving and hands on experimentation and variation design

  • Highly collaborative and willing to seek perspectives and feedback

  • An excellent storyteller who can explain design decisions clearly

  • Comfortable and energised by a fast-paced scaling company and is comfortable ambiguity

Where and how we work:

We are a global, diverse group across age, gender, and race and offer a truly flexible and family-friendly work environment. Kids, pets and the occasional delivery person are all actively encouraged to appear on our Zoom screens. All of us at Linktree work either fully remote or a hybrid "remote and in-office sometimes" approach and that will continue even when COVID is behind us.

We currently have offices in Melbourne, Sydney with LA coming next but our team is spread across Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, USA, Canada, Ireland and Nigeria.

Being globally distributed doesn't mean you need to change your time zone, and we offer autonomy and flexibility in how you structure your days and weeks. There will be the need for some collaboration outside of a "normal" 9-5 as we are a global company, but we aim to work asynchronously where possible.

Our culture & benefits:

Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:

  • We have a paid 18-week parental leave program that is inclusive of birth and non-birthing parents and supports the whole parenting lifecycle

  • We are proud to offer all regular full-time and part-time employees 20 hours' paid volunteering leave per calendar year.

  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training on neurodiversity, unconscious bias, and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.

  • We prioritise our team's mental health, all employees have free access to Headspace and Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.

  • All Linktree staff receive $1000 AUD towards setting up their work from home space
