Job Description:

Lead UX Designer


About us

Headquartered in Berkeley, CA, Bellwether Coffee is a venture-backed, high-growth tech company working hard-alongside other game-changers-to positively transform the coffee industry, making it more accessible and sustainable for our planet and our communities. We're a diverse team of coffee industry veterans, entrepreneurs, engineers, technicians, human-centered designers, and people-focused rule-breakers who have a passion for making the "impossible" a reality.

What we do

Our revolutionary electric, ventless, zero-emissions commercial coffee roaster uses clean technology and does not require gas lines or expensive ventilation. It's the most consistent and controllable roaster available, the lowest carbon footprint commercial roaster ever made, and was designed by coffee people who want a better future for coffee roasting. Our roasting platform allows Bellwether customers to easily and responsibly source green coffee from incredible coffee farms around the world, expertly roast using artisan-crafted roast profiles (or create their own), and share fresh, delicious coffee just the way their customers like it.

About you

You are a crucial member of the team. You're an integrity-driven person who enjoys solving problems, rapidly adapts to change, and thoughtfully shares your progress and ideas with the team. You have a sense of urgency with everything you do without compromising quality and detail. You're naturally empathetic and deeply committed to the equitable treatment of all people everywhere.

About the position

As a Lead User Experience Designer you will be responsible for leading the design of a product experience that makes coffee roasting both approachable for beginners and adaptable for experts. You will also have the opportunity to mentor other talented and highly collaborative UX designers on the team, and lead the development of the product design strategy and vision for Bellwether.

The Lead UX Designer will:

  • Work closely with our product managers, designers, researchers, and customers to understand user needs and business goals, and translate user research and usability study findings into new features and product design improvements.
  • Create design deliverables such as sketches, wireframes, storyboards, journey maps, experience flows, mockups, and/or prototypes to communicate design solutions.
  • Work with developers within an agile development process to collaborate on solutions and ensure that the end product is as intuitive, beautiful, and well-considered as the original design vision.
  • Apply existing design patterns, and work with the software team to continually develop, implement, and maintain a design system that ensures consistency across products and platforms.
  • Collaborate with the CPO on a long-term product design strategy and vision, founded in customer insights, and provide input into the product roadmap to ensure a strategic approach to improving the product experience.

As a UX Design Lead,

  • You have experience in progressively senior roles in an in-house or agency setting where you have designed innovative and delightful products that actually ship.
  • You have a portfolio which demonstrates your ability to deliver meaningful product experiences across multiple technologies, devices, and platforms, reducing complex tasks down to delightful and intuitive design solutions that meet real customer needs.
  • You have led design projects with geographically distributed, multidisciplinary design teams and are comfortable collaborating with, getting and giving feedback, and providing direction to UX designers, developers, and user researchers.
  • You have a pragmatic and adaptable approach to design. You apply best practices, but are always on the lookout for new approaches to try; you know when to use established design systems and processes, and when to break the rules; and you know when to diverge, do generative research, and explore options, and when to converge on a solution and quickly validate it. You also know when it's time to break out your own tools and when to step back and provide guidance and support for others.
  • You apply a design approach that starts with a keen understanding of behavior and motivations, grounded in qualitative and quantitative user insights. You are curious about human behavior and adept at infusing empathy and insight into the process of product creation. You've aligned product teams by clearly defining the problem first, providing customer perspective and context to ensure that solutions meet the real customer need.
  • You're a compelling presenter with strong listening, persuasion, and facilitation skills. You work well with Engineering, Product Management, Marketing and other stakeholders to understand business and technical challenges and opportunities, and communicate your design vision and rationale effectively in the languages they understand. You know when to adapt your design to external constraints and when to push back on them.
  • You're a key part of a collaborative and inclusive work environment, and don't just welcome, but center, backgrounds and points of view that differ from yours. You choose being kind over being polite, which often means identifying and addressing issues, delivering and accepting bad news, pushing outside your comfort zone, and having the hard conversations to get to a better outcome.
  • You are a strategic systems thinker who also has a strong love of design craftsmanship. You set high standards for yourself and others, and have a strong willingness to push boundaries when you know we can do better.
  • You love coffee and you love coffee people. You're ready to transform the coffee business while making a meaningful impact on the environment and improving the livelihood of coffee growers for years to come.

This team is remote-first, but occasional travel to the Bellwether offices in Berkeley, CA will be required once it is safe to do so. Candidates must have authorization to work in the U.S. and be available during working hours in the Pacific time zone.

Please include a link to an online portfolio with your application. Team contributions are expected, but please share your role on the project as well as the business context for each example you include.
