Who is LeanDNA?
At LeanDNA we have a unique opportunity to revolutionize the way factories optimize inventory with predictive analytics and prescriptive AI. Our customers include many of the world’s leading aerospace, industrial, medical, and automotive manufacturers. We are small but growing fast – and we recently raised $15 million in funding this December and have been recognized as one of Built In Austin’s 2020 Best Small Places to work!
As a Product Designer you will play a critical role as we build a product that moves users away from the outdated and manual processes that exist in factories today (spreadsheets, email, BI tools, etc.) and into the future of intuitive purpose-built, AI-driven software. You’ll report to our Head of Product Design on a growing team, working side-by-side with Product and Engineering to design the future of our tool and create meaningful product experiences. At LeanDNA we value highly collaborative, supportive and inclusive environments. Design plays a major role in the company’s success. Small Team = Big Impact.
What you’ll do:
- Advocate for our users to ensure we’re building the right solutions to their daily challenges, and focus on the top 20% of problems that will solve for 80% of our users
- Conduct user research and synthesize findings through interviews and observation (online plus onsite travel) to understand their journey and guide product decisions
- Work closely with product management to translate use cases from product requirements into intuitive designs
- Brainstorm and ideate on new product concepts
