Block Renovation Product Design Manager

Block is a platform transforming the $400 billion renovation industry. Doing a home renovation is a very stressful and hard process. Our mission is to give homeowners a better way to improve the spaces they live in, and to give contractors a better way to work.

Block simplifies the renovation process to give homeowners a reliably good experience, with certainty around outcomes, quality, price, and time. We are building an ambitious, tenacious, and creative team unafraid of tackling new challenges. The founders are former leaders at Casper, HuffPost, and Rent the Runway. Investors include New Enterprise Associates, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, Obvious Ventures, and more.

Role & Responsibilities

We are looking for a Product Design Manager to lead and design user-centric experiences across the renovation ecosystem. Renovations are a high stakes experience for homeowners, and a highly detailed process for design and construction professionals. You will partner with product, engineering, and the cross-functional team to create elegant solutions that balance systematic design, product goals, and customer delight. Your work will balance simplicity and flexibility in designing an ecosystem for the multi-faceted workflows that support the lifecycle of a renovation.

Once here, you will:

  • Drive the concepting, prototyping, validation, and visual execution across the Block ecosystem.
  • Manage individual designers and foster their career development.
  • Help maintain and evolve a digital design system with holistic consideration across platforms.
  • Develop strategic partnership with product and engineering to deliver on mission and identify opportunities across multiple areas of the roadmap.
  • Take a leadership role in cross-discipline initiatives, bringing a design voice to the conversation and building trust cross-functionally.
  • Proactively identify, recommend, and organize user research methods to understand and validate decisions. 
  • Identify tradeoffs and recommend design solutions based on qualitative and quantitative research.
  • Self-start and take ownership over the details from beginning to end.

Qualifications

  • 5+ years of digital product design experience, along with a portfolio that demonstrates problem solving across web and mobile. 
  • 1+ years of mentoring or managing experience of other design team members.
  • Passion for creating great end-user experiences, and a balance between pragmatic intuition and innovation
  • Strong understanding of information architecture, multi-step, and cross-platform flows.
  • Strong understanding of layout, typography and visual hierarchy.
  • Familiarity with user research best practices and methods across different phases of the development process.
  • Communication skills to articulate the “why” behind design and partner cross-functionally.
  • Comfort with design tools for sketching, wireframing, and building prototypes (Figma, Whimsical).

Benefits

  • Earn equity in an early stage high-growth company
  • 100% subsidized health insurance, dental coverage, vision coverage
  • 12 weeks universal fully paid family leave
  • PTO and company holidays
  • 3 weeks a year where you can work anywhere  
  • 401k retirement savings plan with matching employer contribution
  • Employee discount on renovation services
  • Budgeted learning and development stipends
  • Working alongside an ambitious, kind, no-drama team

  • Force simplicity.
  • Problems are our fuel.
  • Collaborate with tenacity and humility.
  • Save money where we should.
  • Speed is our advantage.
