Employment Type Full Time

Lookin’ for a new opportunity to sink your design teeth into challenging and complex problem spaces? We have a full stack design team filled with brilliant, empathic, and creative humans who are each enabled to contribute to our global vision of championing creativity to bring opportunities to people all around the world.  


99designs by Vista is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Since 2008, their freelance community has brought more than one million creative projects to life for thousands of genius entrepreneurs, savvy small business owners, and brands with big ideas. As part of the Vista family, which includes VistaPrint and VistaCreate, 99designs helps small businesses thrive with expert design at their fingertips.


So what are the roles I hear you ask?

As a Senior Product Designer you'll tackle complex tasks and work collaboratively with Product and Engineering to create new, integrated and seamless experiences with 99designs and more broadly across Vista, VistaPrint, VistaCreate and other initiatives.


We have opportunities in both the Exploration Group and the Connections Group.  What does this mean? Good question! The Exploration team owns the product discovery and recommendation experience of 99d, where folks have their first interactions with the 99d platform: which should be both delightful and practical for users. They focus on capabilities to search and discover products and designers - it’s all about gathering the right kind of data to, in turn, show people the right things (and at the right time). 


They make it simpler, easier & quicker for customers to get started on 99d, to create designs that meet their requirements and brand. They are also at the forefront of driving brand awareness of how we can support both customers and creators on their journey of discovering & exploring what they can achieve on the platform. What’s exciting about this space is the scale - there’s a huge amount of traffic from all across the globe, so there’s interesting design and localisation challenges to ponder and solve.


In the Connection team your attention will be drawn to the moment both sides of their creator and client market meet, seeking to understand and solve such challenges as equitable work distribution, work recommendations & matching, scaling our product offerings and the marketplace dynamics that underpin the 99designs platform.  You will work with a team that is focused on supporting the creators in the 99d community; onboarding them, learning about their skills, expertise and interests with the goal of bringing them best suited work opportunities on the platform and making the best match possible. 

  

A little bit about you

You’re a creative and humble designer that loves solving chunky and complex problems and partnering with cross-functional product and engineering teams. Collaborative design sessions, usability testing, user flows, wireframes, prototypes, designing in the open and working directly with engineers, well that’s just your thang!


You will be able to demonstrate experience designing successful products or services including responsive and transactional web apps, championing the needs of the users and rationalising and justifying design work while balancing feasibility, desirability and usability. Fluency with visual and interaction and prototyping tools is a must, they are big fans of Figma and also love collaborating in Miro.


They also have a dedicated Design System team to help with their design tooling and provide guidance on best practices in creating a seamless user experience platform-wide, so you will feel very supported in your work!

Why 99designs by Vista?

As 99designs continues to scale as part of the Vista family, we are committed to building an inclusive and diverse team that reflects the communities in which we operate. We want people to feel like they belong and can bring their whole selves to work. Our aim is to continue to foster a collaborative environment with a keen focus on innovation, growth and ownership. Below are just some of the things we do to support our people:

 

  • Career development and learning in whatever way suits you! Think paid R&D days, courses, formal and informal mentoring, conferences… however you learn best 99d has got you covered.
  • Culture of workplace flexibility and wellness. Study? Parent juggling? Everyone has different needs and the business will support you in the best way we can. Some people work remotely, some with flex start and finish times...the common thread is it’s all about your individual needs. With annual wellness bonuses of $605 + annually refreshing your WFH space with $300, you'll be supported to do your thang.
  • Support for working parents. 18 weeks paid parental leave policy for all parents (we don't distinguish between a primary and secondary carer), which can be accessed part time or any way you want it over the first 18 months, which you can access from day 1 of joining us. We also pay superannuation for paid and unpaid parental leave for 18months!
  • Support for the community. In addition to 99nonprofits, 99designs provide one paid volunteer day a year for you to support a charity and the community as you see fit!
  • 99d are also a proud Code Like a Girl Gold Partner, host of Girl Geek Academy hack days, & maintain popular open source projects, and support a range of other community groups. It’s in our DNA.
