Hi there! Thanks for stopping by

Are you actively looking for a new opportunity? Or just checking the market? Well… you might just be in the right place!

We are looking for a Product Designer to join our team in Newmarket. Your core purpose will be to research, design and prototype user experiences to build a product that retailers will love. You'll work closely with Engineering, QA, and Product teams, and have the support of Senior Product Designers to help you succeed.

  • We're a close-knit design team and we’ve got a number of years under the belt of working in-step with our product and engineering teams;
  • Our team ships code to production every 7 mins. We work in short delivery cycles (max of 6 weeks!) to ensure we have time to deliver value to our customers;
  • A Product Designer is expected to sit around a table with the Product Manager and Lead Engineer and provide direction for the delivery teams, you aren’t just a step in the process.

  • Improving: continuously improve both the small and large details of the design of Lightspeed;
  • Growing: spend time with Senior Product Designers to develop professional design and problem-solving skills.

We believe that Product Design is a unique and niche discipline. We believe that we're on the forefront of that discipline and are inventing the ways design and developer teams will be working in the future. So we're focusing on hiring Product Designers that we can mentor and help develop into modern Product Designers who are operating at the cutting-edge and inventing the future of our industry.

What you need to bring:

  • A design-thinking education (Bachelor of Design, or Visual Arts, or Architecture, or Industrial Design, or Communication);
  • Experience designing products, or working with teams who build with web technologies;
  • Experience with or knowledge of a visual design tool like Figma, Bohemian Sketch or Adobe Illustrator;
