Bolt is on a mission to democratize commerce. We relentlessly prioritize our retailers—putting their brands front and center while enabling frictionless shopping at any touchpoint in the customer journey. At the center of it all is our rapidly growing universal shopper network—Bolt merchants such as Saks OFF 5TH, Revolve, and Casper can access tens of millions of shoppers, offering them a best-in-class checkout.

And revolutionizing ecommerce is only half of the equation—we’re also transforming the way we work. At Bolt, we have created a work environment where people learn to drive impact, take risks and make big bets, and grow from feedback, all while feeling welcomed and accepted for who they are. Come join us on the adventure today!

About the Role and the Team

Bolt is hiring Product Designers to help shape our product strategy and ensure every feature or product we release is world-class. The ideal candidate has deep user empathy, a passion for simplifying complex problems, and an action-oriented mentality. As a product designer at Bolt, in addition to designing and developing projects from start to finish you’ll play a foundational role in setting product vision and strategy.

What you’ll do:

  • Work cross-functionally (design, product, engineering, support, GTM, and marketing) to solve problems for both shoppers and merchants
  • You will iterate on existing Bolt products, and you will have the opportunity to help define a new opportunity space for Bolt.
  • Partner with PMs to understand and identify opportunities
  • Conduct plan and execute on user research initiatives and communicate findings to product and engineering teams
  • Design simple but elegant product flows from start to finish
  • Create prototypes to validate solutions
  • Give and solicit feedback from other designers in order to continually raise our bar for quality
  • Elevate the role of design within the company
  • Partner with engineering to ship pixel-perfect designs
  • Provide systems thinking that solves design problems at scale

What will set you up for success:

  • 5+ years of experience designing digital products
  • We are seeking a business minded product designer with strong fundamentals in both visual design and user experience
  • Strong sense of ownership and ability to work in vague problem spaces
  • Comfortable switching between high level vision thinking to hands-on pixel work
  • Experience working hand in hand with product managers and a proven track record of contributing to team strategy and planning
  • Excellent written and visual communications skills and the ability to create artifacts (documents, diagrams, hi-fi design specs, presentations, sketches) that clearly communicate design decisions.
  • Ability to digest and compile data in a meaningful way to inform and communicate design research and recommendations to stakeholders
  • Proficient with Figma and modern design frameworks — We are a design system oriented team and structure our design files as close to code as possible.
  • Solid understanding of engineering fundamentals, including the web rendering layer. You should be able to comfortably communicate with engineers and speak their language, so that you can ensure designs are executed successfully.

Estimated cash compensation for this role is $150-175k, (230-280k CAD) plus equity DOE

Benefits:

  • Comprehensive health coverage: Medical, dental and vision
  • Remote-first workplace
  • Time away: Flexible PTO, paid holidays + floating holidays, your birthday off!
  • Paid parental leave
  • Competitive Pay
  • Retirement plans
  • Virtual and in-person team & company events
