Senior Product Designer to Alva Labs
The workforce is currently undergoing a massive transformation. Up to 50% of today’s jobs are predicted to change in terms of the skill sets required in just a few years. This makes it very difficult to understand how to evaluate talent, and closing this skill gap is rapidly becoming the most important problem for companies across the world to solve.

Because let's face it, you are more than your CV, and there is no way any company can accurately predict how you will perform in your role based on that. Especially not when the role you have will change so much, so quickly.

At Alva, we are committed to building an inclusive product that provides everyone with an equal opportunity to showcase their capabilities and where candidates can efficiently be matched with relevant job opportunities. We are currently seeking a collaborative Senior Product Designer to join our team and to help us change how the world views talent, today and tomorrow.

The company
Alva Labs is a Stockholm-based SaaS company that offers a solution that is helping global companies grow their team in a scientific way. Alva has created a unique candidate assessment platform that helps companies build their organizations with the right people in the right place. Combining state-of-the-art psychometrics, data science, and an obsession with candidate experience, it provides the needed tool for data-driven talent acquisition.

Our main focus as of now is adapting our offering to larger and more complex organizations. We believe that by serving this segment we maximize our impact on how the market views talent. We are therefore working on large product bets as well as adapting our go-to-market strategies.

The role
This role will report to our Design Lead. You will be part of a small design team, but work very closely to the Product and Engineering teams. We are organized in squads, so your closest colleagues will likely be a Product Manager and an Engineering Manager.

We have just transitioned Design into its own department. This is to ensure design is a driving force in how we build our product. We strongly believe design needs to be the heart and soul of successful product work. We believe that designers should possess the ability to identify the right problems, evaluate and propose effective solutions, and articulate ways to build the right thing.

In your day-to-day work, you will:

Work in a highly collaborative fashion with Product Managers, Engineers, Data Scientists, Sales reps, and Customer Success Managers to define both long-term strategy and short-term tactics.

Be self-sufficient by taking full ownership of your work. You will be responsible for every detail, every step of the way, from whiteboard sketching to high-fidelity build specifications.

Rapidly produce multiple concepts and workflows, understanding when deeper exploration is warranted and when it is best to change paths and try another approach.

Plan, conduct, and analyze user research with recruiters, customers, and candidates. Take into account existing insights, technical constraints, business needs, and specific platform demands to produce data-informed solutions.

Contribute to product growth through experimentation and optimization of existing user journeys.

Participate in design reviews and share your work regularly with the design and leadership teams to constantly improve the product and ensure consistent, great UX across all product surfaces.

Collaborate with the other designers and adjacent teams to continuously improve our Ways of working in Design.

We are seeking a Senior Product Designer that has a solid track record of working with design systems and launching products. Exactly where you have built your experience is less relevant, ideally some from a SaaS-product, but we value your expertise regardless of whether it lies in B2C, B2B, or agency contexts. The important aspect for us is that you have a history of seeing your designs being shipped to production and having iterated on them based on user feedback.

To be a successful candidate, you:

Have extensive work experience as a Product Designer, UI/UX Designer, and/or Visual Designer.

Possess core design skill sets, including visual design, prototyping, interaction design, and information architecture.

Are really good at planning, conducting, and analyzing user research.

Excel in explaining your work, process, and findings to cross-functional stakeholders, actively seeking feedback to produce your best work.

Take ownership over design projects from start to finish, independently involving and leading contributors such as product managers, engineers, and people scientists to a successful outcome.

Fluency in English is a must, Swedish proficiency is not required.

Your future colleagues
We are a team of 60+ people, representing a wide selection of professional backgrounds. The common denominator is the excitement for our mission, to create a fair and efficient job market. We have high ambitions and are eager to create true impact and value for our customers and candidates. There is for sure a lot of engagement and eagerness to build something spectacular together with other highly talented individuals.

What we offer
The problem we are solving is not just engaging and interesting (the combination of psychological science and statistics, with a large chunk of candidate experience obsession, what’s not to love?), but it is also something that has a tremendous impact on both people and businesses. You will have the opportunity to work with something that truly makes a difference.

What else? We have flexible work hours in a hybrid setup, where we spend 3 days at the office and 2 days hybrid (on-site or remote, based on individual preferences). You will get seven weeks of vacation, an on-market salary, a generous preventive care benefit, and a few other neat perks.
