Who we're looking for:

Are you an amazing designer who also wants to lead a team and grow in your career? Can you bring life to new ideas and show the value of design through innovation and vision?

Your passion for design leads you to create fresh new concepts that can change an industry. You take initiative and you find solutions to problems. The status quo is not sufficient. You are constantly looking for new ways to improve design and you expect the people around you to do the same.

You’ll serve a vital role at Skillz: You’ll lead our (currently) small research and development design team. This means you’ll be up-level your team while leading by example, jumping in and creating designs, prototypes, etc when it makes sense. A passion for design excellence expressed through thoughtful creative direction and people leadership is a must.

You will report to the Head of Product Design [ Matt Snow ] and will be based in San Francisco.
