Job Description

Vitamin T has partnered with biggest movement in the US that is moving eating forward? Then this client is for you! We are looking for Product Designers (Jr./Mid and Senior levels) to join the creative team. We are looking for designers that believe design is a verb, not a deliverable. That experience design is 80% thinking or collaborating and 20% putting pixels in place. You know (as much as you might fight it) the constraints of technology are just as important as their promise because it’s in the constraints we find our best ideas. Someone who sees the patterns in the chaos and knows how to translate those patterns into tools for the design teams. You know there’s a time for going wide, a time for going deep, and understand how to bring the product diners teams you work with through both stages. You are a thinker, a maker, and a passionate advocate for the Minimum Delightful Product approach to the mantra of “move fast and ship it.” 


  • Advocate for the users in all design decisions while collaborating with the product, engineering, and design teams 
  • Turn everything from nebulous concepts to specific ideas into useful, delightful product features 
  • Design holistic systems, flows and interfaces that are simple, elegant, and beautiful 
  • Lead mid-level project work from a design perspective with autonomy and authority, facilitating design studios and working sessions to help the teams deliver the best possible solutions 
  • Advocate for the customer in all decisions with the product, engineering, and design teams 
  • Draw insights from the work of our talented research team and know how to turn those insights into tangible solutions 
  • Partner with product, engineers, and the members of the design and research teams to oversee the user experience of a product from conception until launch 


  • At least 3 years of practical, in-house product or UX design experience for either consumer or B2B brands with a focus on complex flows and use cases 
  • Applied experience with service design practices and a practice of constantly evolving your design process 
  • Applied experience working across all digital and physical manifestations of what we design - from responsive web to native applications to the next technological leap 
  • Extensive understanding of prototyping methodologies and practices, user research methodologies and A/B test planning/execution 
  • A passion for mentoring designers, product managers, and engineers to deliver a better, more user-centered product 
  • An acute self-awareness and deep empathy - for both the customer and your team’s goals 
  • Excellent communication and data visualization skills. You can bring internal stakeholders on your design journey and support your decisions with focus and brevity 
  • Experience with either front-end development skills (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), or using prototyping tools that approximate them 
  • A deep curiosity and ability to consider product strategy and vision. You don’t just care about “how it looks,” or “what we should design,” but “why are we designing this at all? 

***Submissions without a portfolio that includes examples of your design work will not be considered.***
