We are looking for an experienced Product Designer or Product Manager with a talent for design to help improve the work-life of thousands of people whose time and talent are cared for within our core product Runn.

We are a small, fast-growing, venture-backed start-up with customers across the globe. We have the ambition and talent to expand and grow into another New Zealand success story.

Our core product gets teams around the world on the same page with their project goals and ensures people are working on the right things at the right time, and no one is overworked. Or to put it simply, Runn organises projects and manages people's time better than anything else out there.

If you care about people, want to ensure they have the best experience, believe values are important and should be expressed through products then you are the type of person we are looking for.

Runn's product team is "full-stack", that means each person owns a feature from problem/idea to delivery. There is no handover, it's yours from start to finish.

On a single feature you'll undertake:

  • Product Discovery - liaison with all areas of the business and customers helping to deliver a product roadmap.
  • Customer Research - define and validate problems, document requirements and understand return on investment, working along side stakeholders.
  • Scoping & Solutions - document scope and solutions in collaboration with developers and stakeholders.
  • Wireframe & Design - design wireframes, UX and high fidelity designs keeping in mind overall user experience in close collaboration with development.
  • Quality Assurance - review features before release to ensure requirements are met and the solution is beautiful, easy to use and something to be proud of.
  • Support & Success - development of onboarding experience for the feature, support documentation and analytics to measure success.

We will provide training, support and time to develop the skills required to be able to undertake this entire process, we don't expect anyone to have done all these areas before, just experience in some areas and a desire to learn and try a new way of delivering amazing products.
