Find the right job for everyone – Our mission reflects how design has been part of our DNA for more than a decade. Our product design organisation has evolved through this time and today we are a team of 30+ designers including Design Operations, Design System, Design Foundation & Service Design roles. We are also part of a wider UX community including our dedicated User Research team of +10 people.

As a product design organisation, we have designers in key senior leadership positions and therefore you will always have support pushing for strategical initiatives across the business. We are spread across both the B2C and B2B sides of the business, providing an end-to-end experience, for both candidates and recruiters alike.

This is a role for our B2C area of the business. We are looking for an exceptional Senior Product Designer that will be able to provide the thought leadership, innovative spirit and expectational craft to re-imagine and redefine an experience which has shaped an entire industry.

This is a highly senior IC role within the product design organization, and therefore leadership aptitudes and mindset are expected from this position. You will be leading an entire stream of work in our B2C area and redefining how we think and believe about recruitment. You will report directly to one of our Product Design Managers. Alongside Heads of Product and Product Directors you will help define and prioritise the right areas of focus for your teams. You will craft some of the best experiences across the entire company.

  • Craft simple, clear and innovative experiences that solve real problems for real users
  • Alongside your Product Partners you will define your own impact, priorities and own the same success metrics as your teams
  • You will elevate the quality of our experiences through outstanding craft and product thinking, and setting standards across the organization
  • Lead critical initiatives across multiple projects and ensure alignment across business objectives
  • Mentor junior designers and foster a culture of excellence and growth within the product design organization

  • You have shipped real products, with real impact across both consumer and enterprise products
  • Track record of craft excellence and the ability to connect user needs and insights with simple and clear solutions
  • Extraordinary storyteller. You are able to bring your immediate team on the full journey as well as your senior stakeholders
  • Prototyping is one of your superpowers – you bring experiences to life, and you inspire others around you through prototyping
  • You have actively evolved a design language and contributed to the continuous innovation of a design system

We’re a community here that cares about your life outside work as how you feel when you’re with us. Because your job shouldn’t take over your life, it should enrich it. Here are some benefits we offer:

  • Your start at The Stepstone Group: We want you to feel comfortable right from the get-go and you can begin networking immediately. That’s why we always start with an onboarding event lasting several days, during which you get to know your new colleagues, our products and our culture. After that, the onboarding continues in your department – with several weeks of individual training. ​
  • Your further development: We are growing – and of course we want you to grow with us. We will support you with targeted training that will help you develop both personally and professionally. ​
  • Big player with start-up flair: Even though we’ve grown quite a bit, we haven’t lost our laidback attitude from the early days. In concrete terms, this means that we are on a first-name basis, we have short communication channels, flat hierarchies and super helpful colleagues. ​
  • Social Days: Talk is silver, action is golden – which is exactly why all our employees have 2 Social Days a year. These can be used flexibly for social and sustainable commitment. And the best thing about it: you don’t have to take any holidays. ​
  • Holidays: While we’re on the subject of holidays … We offer 30 days of paid leave per year plus one customary day. And we always have Christmas and New Year’s Eve off. ​
  • Four-legged friends welcome! Would you like to bring your dog? With pleasure. Every day is “bring-your-dog-to-work-day”!​
  • Our location? At the Medienhafen! For you that means we’re easy to reach – whether by car, train or bike. By the way: We sponsor 50% of your parking space or job ticket. ​
  • Job-bike: And we also have good news for all cyclists: with our Job-bike offer, we support you in getting to the office quickly and sustainably. ​
