Product Designer

Job description

🏔️ Relive

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 more than 1 million new users a month) 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.


🕵️‍♀️ Product Designers at Relive

We're looking for product designers to join our team who have good instincts about what makes a product useful and well-loved by people. You'll be part of a small team (you + 5) and be given a clear focus area. Your job is to understand the problem-space, generate insights, find the right opportunities and produce well-reasoned solutions that facilitate the best possible user experiences, which have impact on our business goals.


👍 Relive Product Designers are:

  • User obsessed - we talk to users constantly and dive into the data we have about their behaviour
  • Analytical - we've got a lot of data and believe heavily in A/B testing whenever it is possible (almost always).
  • Product driven - we understand the business objectives and seek to identify and address opportunities in the product
  • Perceptive - we have an eye for seeing good/bad user experiences and understand why various products are popular/unpopular
  • Clever - we're able to formulate well-reasoned hypotheses and translate these, combined with data insights, into the best experiences for our users


👎 On the flip side, Relive Product Designers are not:

  • UI designers - we think through the whole user experience, not just UI part of it.
  • Biased towards solutions - we first focus on the problem area and figure out opportunities with the product manager and data analyst.
  • Unable to share ideas fast - we like to get feedback from our team fast. That's why we create rough flows and fat marker sketches, before diving into more detailed designs.
  • Fanatical about scrum - we don't follow a rigid methodology. We have our own process and are constantly evolving it as we learn.


💡 What would I work on?

We're planning to start investing in a few new areas of our product. Depending on when you join you'll end up being given a clear focus with your kick-ass team. Some examples of team focus areas we're investing in for 2021 include:

  • Helping users to understand their health and wellness. Our users want our support in staying active, understanding how they are improving over time, and ultimately helping them to live healthier lives. This takes different forms for every user and can be a key reason to keep using Relive long into the future.
  • Take Relive from single player to multiplayer. Relive is awesome today for your own activities, but it doesn't get better as the community grows. We want to make Relive increase in value and enjoyment for our users as we continue to grow towards 100 million users.
  • Give our users an activity tracker that they love. Today our activity tracker is functional but not lovable. We want to make it easier and more valuable for our users to track every activity with Relive.


⭐ The highlights

  • We work in empowered and autonomous product teams. The teams are given clear focuses areas, ambitious objectives, and the safety and trust to do amazing things. The best summary of this mindset is Inspired by Marty Cagan.
  • Our product is growing really fast - more than 1 million new users per month in 2021. We grow 100% organically, our users love our product and share it with their friends and family.
  • The way we work as product teams is at the forefront of modern product building - no scrum, no backlogs or estimates, no coordinating across different departments, no red tape or CEOs telling you what features to build. Just smart people with high autonomy and lots of context about our users and the problems they face.
  • If you want to work on a consumer product with insane growth and are ready to grow yourself and learn faster than you could ever imagine then Relive could be the place for you.


👋 Remote first

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.
