Doodle is the world’s favorite online scheduling tool with 28 million monthly users, today. We are growing at a very fast pace, and strive to be the go-to platform for whenever business people manage their calendars and meetings. Our team of 40 passionate engineers, designers, product managers, marketers and salespeople in Belgrade, Berlin, Tel Aviv and Zurich is waiting for you.

We are looking for a Product Design Lead who is passionate about design, pragmatic and looking to work in a collaborative environment. You’ll lead a team of designers providing direction, guidance, coaching and mentoring as well as input on best practices, tooling and approaches. You’ll be both a leader and a hands-on practitioner, leading by example. You’ll work in a data driven, iterative environment looking to deliver in small batches and continuously learn from feedback and analysis - think lean UX. You’ll work as part of a cross-functional team to identify and solve customer problems.

With us, you will

  • Lead a team of five product designers
  • Coach, mentor and help grow designers in the team
  • Drive understanding and adoption of lean UX and lean startup mindset within the team
  • Define and continually refine processes to help speed and efficiency within the team
  • Collaborate with the team and engineers to define, document and iterate on components and design patterns to make up a design system
  • Working directly as part of a cross-functional team: with engineers, be they front-end, back-end and Product Managers in a collaborative fashion - no hand-offs or ‘throwing things over the wall
  • Quickly and thoroughly create and iterate on scenarios, wireframes, process flows, design mockups, and clickable prototypes as needed to effectively explore and communicate interaction behaviors
  • Fostering a healthy design practice by giving and receiving feedback with maturity and perspective

What we expect from you

  • 7+ years of experience as a product designer
  • 3+ years managing or leading design teams preferred
  • Experience working in a collaborative team, partnering closely with product management to define use cases and requirements, and working directly with developers on implementation of your designs
  • Experience creating and organizing processes around design system preferred
  • Eligible to work in Germany

What you can expect from us

  • Be part of a professional and fast growing team in Berlin
  • Flexible working hours. We build on trust, not control
  • A dynamic work environment with a culture that is open-minded and innovative
  • Your personal growth is important to us. You will have a personal, yearly budget for educational courses, conferences etc.
  • We build positive relationships
  • Sunny, open offices in central locations in Berlin, Zurich, Belgrade & Tel Aviv. Yes, you get to travel there too. This includes a once per year budget to do so, even if there is no direct business reason.
  • Amazing international team events such as retreats in the alps or in the Judean desert
  • Free drinks, office-brewed beer, and regular team lunches
  • Team environment with company parties, nice space to rest and play, lots of fun and more!

Does all of this give you a big visual marketing shiver? Then, we'd love to hear from you! At Doodle, we believe in the value of a gender balanced and diverse team because we experience every single day that this makes for better products and a better workplace. We come from all over the world (representing 20 nationalities) and from diverse backgrounds.

Team & Culture

We're a tight-knit team of 40 (or so) spread out over four different countries. We’ve got our home-base in Zurich, our app teams and designers in Berlin, and our AI counterpart Meekan, in Tel Aviv. 

We’re not a huge company so our team structure enables us to quickly implement new ideas before they get stale on the corporate ladder. Everyone here is encouraged to contribute or experiment, and if we’re all in agreement about a decision we go for it.
