We are looking for a VP of Product Design.
If you are interested in this role, please read a special note from our CEO, Paul Canetti, about this position here.
You will be joining a team of media tech experts to build the next phase of of the MAZ platform, a diverse and powerful toolset that empowers media companies to build amazing experiences for mobile, OTT, wearables, and the web. This role will be responsible for all product management, UX, UI, and visual design, and well as marketing design support.
As the company grows, the goal is to build out an entire product team, comprised of individual contributors each filling a unique role. But to start, the VP of Product Design will be a “team of one”: executing the tactile work while also creating systems of processes to pave the way for a product team, to work in conjunction with our 30+ software engineers.
We are looking for candidates who have a thorough understanding of media and publishing, TV, brands, agencies, mobile apps, OTT, social, and emerging technology platforms like voice assistants, VR/AR, etc. MAZ is a versatile platform that touches almost every type of digital content output, and so while it is unlikely that you are already an expert in all areas, a good foundation and a curiosity to learn is essential.
If you love tech, nerd out on design, sweat the details, and love to really dig deep on issues while still moving at lightning speed, you’re probably going to be a good fit at MAZ. If you are a genuine, caring person who takes pride in your work, you’re probably going to be a good fit at MAZ. If you treat your work as more than a job, and want to become part of a closely knit team of like-minded people, you’re probably going to be a good fit at MAZ. If you have ever been called boring, uptight, or a robot (unless a really cool, nice robot), then you probably won’t be a good fit at MAZ.
Desired Skills and Experience
We’re looking for a candidate with the following experience and qualifications:
- 5+ years of UX, design, or product experience
- Experience with all modern design tools and workflows
- Experience creating CMSs or other sorts of backend admin dashboards
- Experience working closely with software engineering teams
- Experience with designing for most of the following:
- Android TV
- Entrepreneurial by nature and a self-starter who enjoys the fast pace of a startup
- Strong verbal, written and presentation skills
- Management experience is a plus
- Must be US citizen or permanent resident.
To be considered for this position, you must include a brief video about yourself and why you would be a great candidate. Applications without a video will not be considered.
