Relive is an app used by more than 13 million people to track and share their outdoor adventures. Everything from epic bike rides in the mountains to long walks in the forest. We think that being outdoors and exploring the world around you is amazing for your mental and physical wellbeing, and we're on a mission to get everyone exploring the outdoors and living a healthy and active life.
We’re passionate about being outdoors, sharing stories, and creating a company where we love to work. Bringing the best out of everyone as a team. That means constantly learning new things, being flexible about when and where we work, and empowering each other to do the best work of our lives. When doing things at Relive, we like to learn fast, together - creating a product people love to use and share. This means a lot to us. We have an open team culture and a bias towards action.
We're growing fast (100% YoY for most metrics, this year we'll add millions of new users) but we've never paid a euro to acquire a user. We currently grow 100% organically via viral/word of mouth growth loops. This works because our users love our product and love to share it with their friends and family. We are aiming to have more than 100 million users of Relive within the next 3 years.
We're looking for a Head of Design that can lead and develop product design within Relive. You'll combine your analytical and creative mindset to grow, guide and inspire our group of talented product designers and our design culture - making sure we're constantly on top of our product design game. You are the primary voice of product design inside and outside Relive, sharing its work, evangelising its success, and articulating its vision.
Your job is to successfully lead and grow our talented group of product designers (3 right now, 7 by the end of this year) and increase the effectiveness and impact of product design at Relive. You'll also be supporting our Product Analysts and Product Managers to help them improve their qualitative user research skills. You can find a more detailed overview of the traits we look for in our product designers here.
While it will be up to you to figure out the right approach to improve our design culture at Relive there's a few focus areas we already know will need your attention:
We're a remote-first company. That means all our rituals and teams are designed for remote working. You can work in any country in a similar time zone (we're CET) as we've not mastered the art of working across timezones and we don't plan to invest our time in that challenge in the next few years. In practice, that means being located somewhere in Europe.
We have an office in Rotterdam 🇳🇱 where you can work if you prefer a physical space, and we're happy to help you relocate here if you choose.
We expect everyone on the team to get together a few times a year as we still think it's useful to make in-person bonds to strengthen our remote-first culture. That means a few times a year you can expect to travel to Rotterdam to spend time with your team, make connections, and have some fun together.
