Senior Product Designer

Job description

Grover is the alternative to ordinary - rethink things.


Grover offers a simple, monthly subscription model for the tech you love - it's the new, accessible alternative to buying or financing tech products. For a small monthly fee, private customers, as well as businesses, get access to a wide assortment of tech products at a fraction of the purchase price. We're on a mission to re-invent consumption, break the barrier between ownership and usage, and make innovative technology accessible to everyone. As a member of the CE100 Emerging Innovators group of leading companies in the Circular Economy, we are at the forefront of reducing e-waste and establishing a more sustainable way of using products through recirculation. Since launching in 2015, we have reached more than 500.000 registered users and have raised roughly €300 million in equity and debt financing from investors including Samsung, Commerzbank, and Global Founders Capital. LinkedIn ranked Grover as one of the Top 10 hottest startups to work for in Germany in 2019 and 2020.

  • Help engineers and product managers define both the long-term strategy and the short-term tactics for our products
  • Export final assets and write implementation details for engineers

  • Ability to clearly present work, and articulate the rationale for the decisions that led to it.
  • Possess strong verbal and written communication skills, whether in one-on-one or group situations
  • Begin projects by partnering with user researchers and data scientists to define what qualitative and quantitative data will be important. 
  • Share work early and often and seek out constructive feedback from your manager, stakeholders, teams, and the Product Design team (at least once per week for active projects), presentations, and Crits
  • A strong understanding of the vision and key objectives for your product area, taking cues from the design manager, as well as product and engineering leads.
