Commitment Permanent
Team Product Management & Design

We are looking for an experienced Product Design Director to join our 200+ product organization in Helsinki or in Berlin.

As a Product Design Director you are overseeing our product design organization and own the user experience across the Smartly.io product offering. You work together with the rest of the product leadership team to ensure design is embedded in product decisions and development process to deliver an enjoyable experience for our users and to achieve business outcomes. As a key member of our product leadership team, you will also be contributing to our overall product vision and strategy.

This is a key role in developing and integrating the discipline of design into product strategy and the actions following it. You can have a significant personal impact on the products we're building, as well as their impact on our customers and our business. And as a very people-centric company, we want you to be a person who loves seeing others strive and grow as individuals and as a team - under your empathic leadership.

What we offer...

  • A key role in developing and integrating the field of design into product strategy and the actions following it.
  • Opportunity to shape, develop and define the field and culture of product design at Smartly.io — what it is, how it integrates to the rest of the organization, and how it scales.
  • A product-led company building market leading products
  • Opportunity to work with a global customer base of some of the most advanced online marketers out there.
  • Chance to develop products in close collaboration with the leading advertising platforms such as Meta and Google.
  • A strong culture of ownership: you can have a significant personal impact on the products we're building and their impact on our customers and our business.
  • Attractive benefits package, including 30 days of annual leave, company bonus and options.

Here's what you'll do...

  • You will be part of the product leadership team, where you will be shaping the product vision and participating in strategic and operational product decision-making.
  • You own the user experience across the Smartly.io product offering
  • You are responsible for the strategy and the direction of the design function. You make sure it's aligned with our overall product strategy, and you tie the group goals to our company goals.
  • You will manage our product design leads, guiding and mentoring them, helping them overcome challenges, and keeping them aware and aligned with the holistic, big picture.
  • You work across departments to improve our product development processes, focusing on how user research transforms into design decisions, quality, and coherence of design implementation and design communications.

We're definitely looking for you, if you...

  • Have several years of design experience from a variety of environments.
  • Have led design organizations in the past. 
  • Are experienced in all the stages of a design process, especially in user research and how data transforms into design decisions that increase customer value.
  • Are passionate about creating extraordinary, measurable product experiences that scale.
  • Know how to prioritize and execute. You are comfortable optimizing for speed and understanding when we should sweat the details vs. what we can fix forward.
  • Are a great emphatic listener who cares about people's wellbeing and growth.
