Description

At QuickBooks,

world-class design helps power the success of small businesses and

self-employed people around the world. Our designers are involved at every step

of a project—from gathering insights, brainstorming, prototyping, and

experimentation to launching pixel-perfect designs. However, just because

you’re a specialist, doesn’t mean that’s ALL you get to do. We’re also

innovating through machine learning and conversational UI, and you’ll be

contributing to making every interaction delightfully simple.

You might be thinking, what’s

the difference between QuickBooks and QuickBooks Self-Employed? They’re the

same. But, the lion share of QuickBooks Self-Employed users don’t come from

financial, business, or accounting backgrounds. They are the few that have the

fire and guts to make a venture of their own, with the hopes of making it. They

don’t know P&L or 1099-MISC. What they care about is getting paid for work

or product they produce… that’s where we (and you) come in, designing products for

the everyday entrepreneur (sans MBA), who might eventually be the next fortune

500 elites. We’re the first point of contact for these future moguls, and it’s

our job to get them primed for success through compelling, yet approachable

visual design style. Share your empathy for the user, by collaborating with

fellow designers, developers, product managers, and customer care team to craft

memorable and impactful work.

As an organization, we value

speed and a scrappy startup mentality, it’s literally in our name: quick-books

and self-employed! Much like the self-employed people we serve, our team

members are experts in their field (design), self-motivated, question the

status quo, and know how to work cross-functionally to get stuff done. Just like our self-employed customers, we

know that success is built on the support of others. We’re looking for designers that are

comfortable moving fast, with the gusto of an entrepreneur, and believe in the strength of teamwork. Get ready

to dive in and ship awesomeness to our customers, who are potentially like you!

We know it

takes vision, passion, and true grit to be a self-employed entrepreneur… and

that’s the type of designer we want. If you’re ready to create bold and elegant

solutions that power prosperity around the globe, hit us up. We celebrate

diversity and welcome any non-traditional paths into this profession. (Some of

our backgrounds include Music, Architecture, and English literature!)

What you’ll do:

Demonstrate artistry and excellence in the simplification of abstract strategies; knowing how to make complex ideas into simplified visuals, so that others can quickly comprehend them.

Lead creative direction for your direct team, cross-functional teams, contractors, agencies, etc.

Scale existing or initiate new visual treatments,

methods, systems, and illustrations that lead to emotional product experiences

within the team and potentially across the organization
