OVERVIEW OF THE ROLE

As a Designer at Binti you’ll play a key role in our development team, collaborating with Product and Engineering to build intuitive + easy to learn experiences that help more children find permanent families. You will spend time shadowing and interviewing youth, families, and social workers to understand their processes and challenges, dive into solutioning with Product Managers, and translate ideas into workflows into wireframes. You will also conduct user testing and collaborate with engineering to translate ideas into delivery. As the designer, your role will be to balance a blue-sky vision of where we could be with technical constraints, helping us build a product that is both intuitive and scalable.
