ABOUT FLOWN

FLOWN helps people work better. We do this by giving our members tools to focus, and tools to recharge their focus.

Our platform offers a holistic approach, based on all the scientific research into what helps us become more productive, creative and fulfilled.

FLOWN is led by successful serial entrepreneur, Alicia Navarro, founder of Skimlinks (acquired by Connexity April 2020), and backed well-known entrepreneurs and angels such as Greg Marsh (OneFineStay), Taavet Hinrikus (Transferwise), Tom Allason (Shutl).

ABOUT THE ROLE

One of FLOWN's core values is a deep appreciation for good design and easeful flow, and its importance in imbuing moments with delight, beauty, ease, and clarity. We are seeking a Product Designer to create this customer experience, and make the FLOWN brand synonymous with these values.

RESPONSIBILITIES

Here's some of things you'll be responsible for:

  • Work with our Product Manager and Founder to define, design and create the features of the FLOWN platform.
  • Create and rapidly iterate prototypes at various levels of fidelity, turning ideas and concepts from sketches and wireframes into development-ready specifications.
  • Design additional graphic user interface elements needed to enrich our existing design system.
  • Design the user interface and user experience of all features and interactions with our website and platform.
  • Work closely with our Tech team to ensure they have all the designs, specifications and assets needed to develop our software productively.
  • Work with the Product Manager to understand and map out our use cases, user personas, and various customer journeys.
  • Create assets and technical specifications that enable the successful development of features.
  • Manage and enrich our platform design system and asset library.
  • Monitor and analyse our site's data and user interactions, in order to provide product and feature recommendations (across all teams), and to continuously evolve our designs to improve usability, delight and engagement.
  • Ensure the FLOWN brand design is consistently represented across all the work we produce, from decks to documents to interface design to customer collateral.
  • Stay abreast of competitors, other great visual brands, new trends, and best practices in order to bring this perspective into your rationale for features, design concepts and UX decisions.

We think you’ll need the following experience in order to succeed in the role:

  • 3+ years of experience as a UI/UX designer.
  • Experience with both visual/graphic design experience alongside wireframing & user flows.
  • Competence using Sketch and/or Figma.
  • Exposure designing for both B2C and B2B SaaS products advantageous.
  • Experience with online and offline ad design, as well as printed and/or physical product design advantageous (or comfortable briefing freelancers to do this).
  • Experience working within an early-stage business is preferable.
  • Sourcing and managing freelancers.

In addition, here are the core attributes we think you'll need to succeed in the role:

  • Creative, passionate, a strong aesthetic, and sound judgement - you create unique, beautiful, clean and engaging designs. You are excited by our mission and use this passion to create user experiences that will drive value. You are the champion of what good looks like, and you use this skill to make wise empathetic decisions, and to guide others in the same way.
  • Collaborative - you understand that product design touches upon all teams, as well as our members and hosts. You proactively and constructively share your opinions, plans and insights with team members, and you regularly solicit the views and needs of others - be they internal team members or users of FLOWN.
  • Product mindset - you understand how to observe and extract information about what customers want from a product. You use these insights to evolve our product and its UI in a way that keeps them happy, engaged, and retained.
  • Organised and resilient - you thrive in a fast-paced team, prioritise a busy workload, juggle multiple tasks, and work to quick-turnaround deadlines. You are unfazed when there's a lot on your plate or curveballs are thrown your way.

We want to practice what we preach, and build a company and team that works creatively and productively. Here are some of the benefits you'll gain from this role:

  • Scope and influence - you're joining the founding team and will be involved in shaping our product, what we do, and how we work.
  • A focus on deep work - we exist to support deep work among our members, so we support our staff in developing their own distraction-free deep work practice.
  • A strong team - we are led by a proven CEO & Founder, and the rest of the team is equally highly experienced. We also have a high-calibre of investors with a good amount of member traction already.
  • Fully dispersed, flexible working - we are a remote-first company, and we've got lots of perks, tools and processes to make sure that works for everyone. We encourage individuals to establish working hours that enable them to work as productively as possible, and we understand that everyone needs a work/life balance.
  • Team socials - we get together regularly to collaborate and have fun. We also embed virtual activities and other surprises into our working days.
