Senior Product Designer (Contractor)
Grailed and Heroine are curated e-commerce marketplaces for men’s and women’s luxury fashion. Our community driven marketplaces are built for enthusiasts by enthusiasts. Our goal is to provide an interactive and educational meeting ground where fashion enthusiasts can buy and sell their unique pieces.
Our team prides itself on providing an environment that encourages learning and growth, giving you the opportunity to lead your own projects and take pride in the work you do. We're constantly looking for chances to create a more inclusive, fun, collaborative, and effective work environment.
We believe design should be useful, functional and beautiful. At Grailed, design has a seat at the table and we believe the design voice is incredibly important to the success of the Company mission and the Brand, and we empower design and the individuals that create it.
The product in its current form is raw, and needs your help to unlock the full potential of the platform. Work is required on the responsive experiences on Grailed.com, our sister site Heroine.com, iOS and Android Apps, an integrated editorial and commerce platform, a more robust internal moderation tool, quarterly campaigns for our users, and ongoing strategic partnerships with designers and creators.
