Product Designer

Trippy is looking for a skilled product designer to lead a new product initiative.

You'll be shaping a consumer travel product that's going to make travel research awesome (finally).

Your role will span product management and interaction design, but you'll also help wrangle branding, marketing, copywriting and more.

Be prepared to act like a founder.

You'll be prototyping products/features from concept to launch and you'll be the advocate for the user the whole way through.

Tools of the trade include your favorite wireframing tool, a word processor, google analytics, google website optimizer, and maybe even Photoshop, Illustrator, or your favorite IDE. If you can do the work, the actual tools are up to you.
