About Storypark
Storypark creates tools for educators, early childhood education services and families to collaboratively document, share, discuss and strengthen the learning and development of children. It’s a really exciting time for us! We’re well established as market leaders in the early childhood online education space in New Zealand and Australia, and we’re now on a mission of global expansion to deepen the impact our product creates. 
The Opportunity
For us to fulfil our purpose at a global scale we need to surface new strategic opportunities that will gain traction in new and adjacent markets, strengthen our current business model and nurture existing customers to ensure retention and expansion.
In order to support those goals, we need your design expertise to solve complex and meaningful problems through rapid and lean experimentation, to uncover high growth opportunities.
Working closely with our Head of Product-led Growth, you will seek out and define customer problems that have a higher potential to impact children and their communities.  This is a pivotal design role that will see you constantly working at pace, generating hypothesis, testing, validating and prototyping in pursuit of a solid viable product.
About you:
  • your skills as a designer are broad, you’re analytical and versatile, with experience in product strategy, as well as visual and UX design, data, and user empathy
  • you have a deep understanding of how to uncover customer context and motivation and how to turn that into realised impactful design
  • you’ll have the ability to contribute at a strategic level, seeing obstacles and constraints as opportunities for innovation and disruption
  • with a commercial mindset you consider the business value and bigger picture in your problem solving through design
  • you are driven by making an impact, you’re not happy to settle and are driven to ensure every angle of an opportunity has been explored to keep us moving forward
  • you deeply understand the delicate balance of pushing design far enough to test and iterate through a customer lens, measuring its impact to enable development or pivoting entirely.
What you’ll bring:
  • experience as a product, interaction and / or user experience designer that has worked with teams to deliver solutions that meet the needs of users
  • you appreciate the big picture and the small details, with thorough attention to detail when thinking about complex problems, systems and software
  • a proven ability to simplify complex needs into simple, elegant and accessible designs
  • experience and interest in testing, validating and de-risking your designs through interviews and user testing
  • a talent in general graphic design practice and typography
  • solid UX copywriting that is approachable, simple and effective
  • you’re happy and productive prioritizing your own time and work
  • you use the right tool for the job, with proficiency in a variety of design and prototype tools such as Figma, Sketch and Invision
  • experience and proficiency in front end development is a bonus
  • a desire to learn and grow – We value curiosity, collaboration and growth mindsets. Change is guaranteed, and your role will expand and evolve as Storypark does.
