Lead Product Designer


Job description

We are Pixellu, a software company on a mission to simplify professional photographers’ lives. We are seeking a world-class Lead UX/ Product Designer to head our product design. You’ll be working directly with the VP of Product & CEO to develop a product vision and execute on that vision with the help of UX/UI, Product Owners/Managers, and Engineering.

This is not a “sit in the office and plan” role. This is a role where you will be with the exec team one day, and in the trenches the next. Expect to roll up your sleeves and be in the weeds, doing the work.

About Pixellu

At Pixellu, we know professional photographers are frustrated with all of the tedious work required to run a successful photography business. Many get so overwhelmed, they end up quitting on their dream of having a photography career. That is why we create easy-to-use, time-saving software that simplify photographers’ lives, so that they can spend less time in front of the computer and get back to doing what they love.

Pixellu was co-founded in 2010 by two wedding photographers. Faced with the challenges of long hours and endless tasks, we began asking ourselves, “How can we save valuable time, make more money, and get our lives back?” Our answer was technology. We started Pixellu with the idea that we could make money by providing an honest service that helped photographers save time and live more fulfilling lives. We believed that, by focusing on a great product and great service, we could build a business that not only does good, but also does well.

Today, we are a team of 30 team members spread across 10 countries, serving tens of thousands of photographers in over 100 countries.
