Who We Are

We're a diverse, multidisciplinary team of world-class designers who are hard at work transforming the experience of shopping for your home. Our design practice is collaborative, data-driven, and fast-paced.

How can we leverage AR to make it easier for our customers to imagine how furniture would fit in their space? How can we seamlessly connect them with gig economy assembly and installation pros to get that new chandelier installed before the next dinner party? If you're interested in answering these types of questions, you're the Experience Designer we're looking for.

  • Drive urgency and excitement through timed events for brands and best-in-class products, as well as matching, bundling, and gifts with purchase

  • Get to know our powerful promotions platform and how both curated collections and machine learning drive the shopping experience, intelligently surfacing the best deals at the right time

  • Design to consistently scale and leverage shareable components for web and app for our international sites and family of brands (Wayfair, Allmodern, Birch Lane, Joss & Main, Perigold)

  • Deliver work that emphasizes the use of lean tools and techniques to more rapidly deliver work; deliver quick "napkin sketches" as appropriate to ideate; create high fidelity output using a global design system; embrace incremental changes to test and learn

  • Report to the Design Manager of the Attract & Accelerate superpod

Best Candidates Will Be:

  • Adaptable: You are comfortable with speed, change, and some ambiguity in a rapidly growing environment

  • Curious: You desire to continuously learn and dig deeper beyond assumptions and data

  • Able to drive design strategy: You have strong points of view "loosely held"

What You'll Need

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Information Architecture, or related field

  • 5+ years of professional UX experience

  • Strong understanding of design processes; knowledge of what is possible and what will be hard to achieve and/or implement in a digital environment

  • Communication and interpersonal skills: Ability to present and articulate ideas, openness to evolve opinions that challenge beliefs

  • Strong skills in modern design tools like Sketch, Abstract, Invision, Framer, UX Pin, and Creative Suite

  • Expertise in producing relevant deliverables, including detailed site maps, user flows/task flows, user journeys, page flows, taxonomies/folksonomies, paths to purchase, wireframes, annotations, and prototypes that represent interaction recommendations, etc.

  • Working knowledge of HTML/CSS/JS. Hands-on skills a plus.

  • An online portfolio of case studies that demonstrates unfailing advocacy for the user, highlighting: e-commerce design work, mobile design work, analytical decision-making, and strategic thinking.
