GoodParty.org is looking for a remote Senior Product Designer. This person will bring their 7+ years of expertise in user experience and user research to our design team that is designing and developing an innovative product for candidates and citizens who are ready to disrupt the corruption in American politics. 

 

About Good Party:

GoodParty.org is a comprehensive platform powering the movement to make people matter more than money in our democracy. 

 

GoodParty.org is founded and fully-funded by serial entrepreneur, Farhad Mohit, with over $1B in exits — Flipagram (now TikTok), Shopzilla, and BizRate.

 

Why?

Americans – especially young people – are losing faith in democracy. The rigged, two party system has turned “Independent” into a dirty word. Voters are trapped between choosing the lesser of two evils or sitting out elections altogether.

 

A majority of eligible voters (over 130M Americans), including more than half of Millennials and Gen Z, say that neither Republicans, nor Democrats represent them. But they keep getting re-elected! Whether you’re concerned about the environment, healthcare costs, wars, inequality, or our individual freedoms, many great solutions are held back by the dark doom-loop of dysfunctional partisan politics. 

 

While mainstream media and the two major parties focus on federal elections (e.g. Congress and President), GoodParty.org is building from the bottom up. With over 500,000 elected offices in the United States, 70% of which are uncontested, we are powering a grassroots revolution to take back our communities from career politicians by helping real people run and win local and state level campaigns all across the country.

 

How?

GoodParty.org’s solution is to make it simple to run, win and serve. We offer free AI powered tools to help real people run and win elections, independent of partisan support or big money. We train people to run for office and support candidates who take our pledge so they don’t have to sell out to the Democrats or Republicans, raise big money, or cow-tow to special interests. Our free AI Campaign Manager and team with 50+ years of campaign experience make running, winning and serving as an independent, people-powered anti-corruption candidate possible.

 

We’re also building a movement of bright, caring Americans who are ready to end this country's two-party political dysfunction. Our community’s collective power is being harnessed to elect the most promising independents around the country. By leveraging social media and creators, we’re making our mission to make people matter more than money mainstream.

 

Why you should work at GoodParty.org:

  • Join us in solving the biggest problem of our time – fixing our democracy – so all other problems can be solved

  • We’re a Public Benefit Corporation that prioritizes social impact over profit

  • Innovative Bitcoin denominated deferred bonus plan, allowing you to have the amazing upside of being in a startup while working on a truly meaningful mission

  • Work where and how you like, on a fully remote team spread across the country

  • Join a passionate team with diverse political views focused on one mission

  • 100% coverage of health, dental, and vision benefits for you and your dependents

  • We encourage you to take time off to recharge and have an unlimited PTO (sick and vacation) policy. This is a marathon, not a sprint. We believe a work-life balance is needed to get there. 

  • We’ll make sure you’ve got what you need to work remotely through our workspace setup stipend

  • If you work from home, we give $50/month to help with your internet and other expenses. If you prefer co-working, that’s an option we can discuss too. 

  • Fully funded for our mission. No stressing over whether the next round of funding will come through. Focus on making an impact. That’s what matters here.

 

What you’ll do: 

  • Champion an iterative, fast-paced, data-driven design philosophy – prototype, user-test, launch, learn from user data and feedback, to iterate further

  • Designing and developing website user interfaces that are visually appealing, user-friendly, and functional.

  • Producing user flows and wireframes that effectively communicate design concepts and user interactions.

  • Creating and maintaining production-ready assets for developers to implement.

  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams, including product managers, developers, and other designers, to ensure project requirements are met.

  • Coordinate our user research and testing to generate continuous insights that influence our design and product direction.

  • Partner with Product Management to translate product requirements and user stories into world-class UI / UX to empower candidates, voters, and volunteers

  • Participate in and facilitate brainstorming with leadership and key stakeholders to align product and design visions around excellent user experience.

  • Evolve GoodParty.org’s design system and partner with Marketing to establish our brand and visual identity

  • Obsess over the user experience and design accessible interfaces that work seamlessly for people with varying levels of ability. Maintain high empathy in all facets of your design work. 

  • Staying up-to-date with emerging design trends, tools, and technologies to ensure our designs are cutting-edge and effective.

 

Who we’re looking for:

  • You’re up for the audacious challenge of redesigning our democracy. You’ve got the grit to see it through because you’re motivated by the potential impact you can have.

  • You’re a proven A-player with a track record of innovative design, increasing responsibility, and success. We care more about trajectory than years of experience.

  • You bring a clear creative direction from the highest level but are hands-on living and breathing the details

  • You have strong understanding of user-centered design principles and best practices. 

  • You’re an expert in Figma and have experience with recent research tools that have AI capabilities such as HeyMarvin, Maze, DoveTail, Kraftful, Dscout, etc. 

  • You’ve built something from scratch or worked at an early stage startup. You enjoy the ambiguous, ever-changing nature of startups. 

  • You’re able to design independently and are also willing to collaborate well with others to iteratively solve problems in real-time

  • You’ve performed evaluative user research such as A/B tests, focus groups, value-prop testing and more on innovative products. You are well-versed with a variety of user research testing tools. You’re incredibly skilled at prototyping. 

  • You are known for having excellent communication skills and the ability to collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams.

  • You have experience working with Figma and are energized by collaborating live with your remote teammates and stakeholders.

  • You thrive working at startup speed. Our solution is desperately needed and the issues of our time are all bottlenecked by our corrupt democracy. 

  • You’re constantly learning patterns and trends in UI/UX and using or comfortable with the ever-changing social media landscape of Gen Z (e.g. TikTok, Snap, etc.)

  • You’re an honest, direct communicator who seeks out and appreciates giving and getting feedback

  • You communicate your ideas and reasoning clearly, both verbally and visually

  • You’re comfortable working alongside a development team within lean and agile processes

  • You are on board with our mission of supporting independent, people-powered, anti-corruption candidates from across the ideological spectrum

 

Bonus if:

 

  • You have experience with React Web, Jira, Milo, and other leading design or collaboration tools

  • You have experience studying, working, or volunteering in politics, political activism, or democracy reform

  • You’re sick of sitting on the sidelines watching our democracy fail to meet its potential

 

The salary range is $120,000 - $165,000 (commensurate with experience) for this remote, full-time position with excellent benefits. We reserve the right to modify this pay range at any time. Title will also be commensurate with experience. We are not considering candidates currently based outside of the US, so please only apply if you are physically located in the US. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide sponsorship for any of our roles at this time.

 

Apply or spread the word:

We hope you'll apply!
