Local Charlotte, NC candidates – no relo as this is freelance onsite.
Publicis Sapient is seeking a Freelance Product Designer with 2-3 years experience in large system designs to join one of our retail clients for a long term freelance engagement.
Our client in transitioning to a fully agile product development approach, meaning the ideal design candidates will be full-stack product designers. What’s that you ask? A Product Designer leverages a truly hybrid skillset: an experience designer and design thinker who can simultaneously think both strategically and tactically, with the ability to distill insights from research and leverage (and/or enhance/optimize) an existing design system to rapidly create high-fidelity screens – not wireframes per se, but straight to comps. People with a strong understanding of brand but a focus on usability. Product Designers are familiar with the E2E product development and design process, know the limitations and capabilities of the given platform, but can work quickly and collaboratively with the product manager and product engineers in a multi-disciplinary fashion to work through a backlog in conjunction with the established sprint cadence. Mind you, these are not unicorns – there is no expectation to be able to write code of any kind, but a product designer should understand the benefits of a design system, be able to leverage a design system manager that can allow for easy translation of UI elements to code snippets, and maintain as short a distance as possible between design and development.
