Remote / Hybrid
Lead Product Designer
WQA is looking for a Lead Product Designer. Working with Startups, Scale-ups and Enterprise, we accelerate growth for ambitious companies by designing and building digital products, fast. Working at WQA is different. People aren’t a line item on a spreadsheet, a percentage in a budget, or just a sum of the work they produce. People are the reason we do the work and run the numbers, not the other way around. Our product team at WQA wants to empower our customers by creating beautiful and intuitive products, across platforms, in a relentlessly collaborative way, to solve real business problems.
We’re looking for a Product Designer who will combine helping our customers design and launch some of their most important projects along with helping us to grow our culture, coach and inspire the WQA product team, and work closely with our customers to improve the way they think and work.
