Position Purpose Statement
As the Principal Product Designer at MyPass Global, you are the visionary driving force behind our design excellence. You will leverage your deep understanding of design trends, customer discovery methodologies, and user insights to create a compelling and cohesive design vision. The latter will align with our business and customer goals while accounting for technical constraints and setting the strategic direction for design.
You will conduct customer interviews, usability sessions, and competitor research to gather insights and analyse data, informing product decisions. Your design and prototyping velocity will be unparalleled and increase our rate of learning. You will mentor the rest of the design team and raise the bar for product design. Your ability to balance strategic thinking with tactical execution will be crucial in navigating challenges and seizing opportunities to propel the product and the organisation forward.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Leading design strategy and execution, focusing on both strategic and incremental improvements.
  • Create high-fidelity prototypes and maintain a cohesive design system with strong visual design skills.

  • Champion consistency across our products.
  • Raise the bar for the product design craft across our products.

  • You bring a strategic lens to your work. You think about the second and third order impact of design decisions that make your work stand the test of time.
  • You are well versed in determining feature scope, ensuring we make the right tradeoffs and we don’t ship half-baked functionality.
