Head of Design (UX/UI) (d/f/m)


We are looking for passionate people to join us on our mission to rethink the entire user interface of digital education & entertainment for young children.
At our company, we strip away policies and procedures and instead offer freedom, responsibility and trust. We practice radical honesty and open & clear communication, value fact-based, strong opinions, and base all our actions on what is best for our customers. We want to break with conventions and create a place that is great to come from. At Lottie, we value diversity of perspective and seek to build an inclusive workplace that welcomes team members from all different backgrounds.

What you will get to do

  • Own the user experience and interface design across all platforms (web, mobile & apps), both strategically and operationally, and co-own our company's product roadmap
  • Manage the full product design lifecycle, from ideation, research, and creating the product design vision to pixel-perfect implementation
  • Hands-on designing (we are a small team, so everybody has to roll up their sleeves in the early days): create wireframes, storyboards, user flows, process flows etc. to communicate interaction and design ideas effectively
  • As we grow, you will recruit and lead a team of UX/UI designers and user researchers
  • Be our company's design advocate, both internally & externally, and build a strong design culture, where talking to customers is the start of any project

This role is perfect for you if you

  • You are obsessed with our customers & want to build a world-class experience for them
  • Enjoy challenging the status quo, and always find ways to simplify a user experience
  • Have a talent for striking the right balance between hands-on designing, and strategic direction for your team
  • You are familiar with research / UXR methodologies to define products and guide decision-making
  • Enjoy working in a cross-functional setup with engineering, product & business
  • Are excited about working at the intersection of software & hardware

Who you are

  • A track record in building successful products across multiple platforms (web, mobile, app)
  • Experience in handling multiple projects in parallel, and prioritizing competing ideas to find the best, user-centric solutions
  • Experience in building and managing a team of designers embedded into multi-disciplinary teams + running them efficiently
  • An integrative and transparent communicator
  • A humble and curious person
This position is open for candidates wanting to work onsite or in remote (located in time zones +/- 2 hours from Berlin) and enjoy flexible working hours with openness to travel to our office a few times a year. 

What comes next?

As part of the recruiting process you will get to know our entire team, our advisors and investors. There will also be a small challenge that we will explore in a joint workshop, to give you a sense for the questions we are trying to answer at our company, and to get to know each other in a collaborative work setting.
