Senior Product Design Manager

GetYourGuide is busy revolutionizing the tours and activities space, fundamentally changing how people discover and book things to do in their destination. We come to work everyday because we are passionate about turning customers' travel dreams into reality. Design is a critical part of this mission.

 

About the team

We’re about 13 people total on the Design and UX team, divided into 3 disciplines: Product Design, UX Writing and UX Research.

The Product Design team is responsible for the design systems that underpin all our products, as well as the specific screens and workflows that make up a product’s user experience. 

 

About the role

We’re looking for an experienced manager who will have the chance to help build a quickly growing and highly skilled group of designers. You’ll join our growing team of design leaders and help shape not just our products, but our people and the way we design and build.

You help our teams focus on the user and make sure we’re solving the right problems with the best solutions. We guide teams through complex problem spaces on their journey to get to simple.

On a typical day, you’ll give feedback in design critiques, coach your team through challenges, make strategic decisions with your peers in Product and Engineering, and interview candidates to join our team.
