UX / Product Designers

Axiom Zen HQ (Vancouver), Axiom Zen Chile (Santiago)

Axiom Zen is an award-winning venture studio. We specialize in creating and reinventing businesses for a software-centric world. Our products have made “Best of the Year” lists (Apple; The Next Web), improved millions of lives, and are used by the world’s leading companies – including Adobe, Sony, Starbucks, Phillips, and SEGA. In 2015 alone, our work was featured in TIME, The New York Times, USA Today, and Wired. We just made the cover of Canadian Business' 2016 "Most Innovative Companies in Canada.”

 

The Role

At Axiom Zen, coming up with innovative solutions is a team-wide challenge. Unlike other companies where designers often improve the experience of existing products, our UX / Product Designers help define and build the product experience from the ground up. This involves full-stack product design from ideas to concept, and prototype to high-fidelity wireframes for MVP products. We’re looking for product-focused UX designers to join our team in Vancouver, Canada or Santiago, Chile.

As an Axiom Zen designer, you consider the full spectrum of a product, not just specific elements like UX or visual design. You offer exciting ideas and bold new concepts, but you test and validate ideas before you act on them, and you consider business goals in your user-centric design.

 

Does this describe you?

  • Have successfully designed web and mobile products from concept to completion, with a portfolio that excites!
  • Able to design modern solutions that fit into today’s best practices models but eager to push tomorrow’s boundaries
  • Have experience working with a team and are capable of leading product design decisions within one
  • Are able to prototype and present design decisions to different teams and be open to feedback
  • Can design scalable MVPs to hit business goals in alignment with user needs
  • Have experience in rapid prototyping using different tools. We use Sketch, Invision, MarvelApp, Principle, and Zeplin.io.
  • Have a degree or equivalent experience in UX/UI Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Architecture, or similar fields

 

Bonus points:

  • Front-end development skills
  • Designing for immersive environments (e.g. VR, AR), 3D, conversational interfaces, or physical products

About Us

Axiom Zen is a startup that builds startups. We specialize in new venture creation, taking ideas from paper to product-market fit. We have developed the people, processes, and perspectives necessary to successfully navigate the nexus where the latest advancements in design, engineering, and business intersect.

We believe traditional approaches to innovation have stopped working; the strategic landscape is changing too fast. By the time carefully-laid plans are implemented, they are already outdated. A successful endeavour doesn’t play catch-up!

Optimizing for impact often means working with emerging technologies (like VR and AI), but also includes advances in product, visual design, and even storytelling. Our team of fifty founder-quality engineers, designers, and product leads combine a wealth of experience from fast-growing startups as well as companies like Apple, Google, and SpaceX.

Competitive salary, exceptional benefits, and generous stock / equity.

  • Speaker Travel Budget. We believe strongly that all our team members should have the opportunity to become thought leaders in their fields. To support this, we have a standard policy to cover travel + accommodations for speaking engagements anywhere in the Americas, and are very willing to support speaking engagements elsewhere around the world as well.
  • Mandatory 15 Off Days Per Year. We have a high standard for impact but we insist on work-life harmony and believe in balance. Minimum of 15 off days every year, with no hard limit.
  • Transport Reimbursement. We cover public transport to work and back. If you bike to work instead, we set aside $1000/year for bike maintenance. If you walk to work, we’ll bonus you the same amount as a rental subsidy.
