NDWA LABS Product Designer
NDWA Labs’ La Alianza media venture and chatbot puts vital information and resources directly into the hands of cleaners, nannies and home care workers. Launched as an experiment, La Alianza grew quickly to more than 200K domestic worker subscribers. In 2020 we aim to grow La Alianza in size and impact; launch a new initiative using chatbots to conduct working condition research; and integrate La Alianza with our other products, including Alia, the first portable benefits platform for domestic workers. In order to accomplish this, we are looking for a multi-talented Product Designer to create transformative and trust-inspiring experiences for domestic workers.
About Us: NDWA Labs is the innovation arm of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, one of the country’s leading progressive social movement organizations. At NDWA Labs, we’re building products that transform domestic work jobs into good jobs by bringing respect, living wages and benefits to an invisible, undervalued and vulnerable part of the economy. Rather than optimizing within the status quo, NDWA Labs leverages tech to disrupt power and fundamentally change the ways in which work is organized and paid for the millions of women and immigrants in the domestic work industry.
About You: You’re a seasoned product designer who wants to roll up your sleeves to help build something great. You are build-focused and human-centered. You’ve turned complex problems into simple and engaging mobile experiences. You’re skilled up and ready to own the design process on a small, passionate product team -- from conducting user research to prototyping to visual design to pitching in on coding HTML/CSS. You could design anywhere but you want to design for people typically overlooked by Silicon Valley and make tech work for them. You are meticulously detail-oriented and believe that every touchpoint matters. You are excited to work in a vibrant, women of color-led start-up and social movement environment.
