My name is Philippe and I’m the Head of Product Development here at MediaValet. What are your plans for 2021? I ask because I’m looking for a Product Designer to join my rapidly growing team. If you haven’t hear of us before, here’s a little bit about who we are and what we do:
MediaValet is a rapidly growing cloud-based digital asset management (DAM) company that allows marketing and creative teams to easily access and use their rich media (photos, videos, graphics, etc.) from anywhere across the globe. We’re continually recognized as a leader and innovator in the SaaS world - in fact, we recently won Microsoft’s 2020 AI and Machine Learning IMPACT Award, and we were recognized as the 68th fastest growing SaaS organization in the world in SaaS Mag’s SaaS 1000 list! In the past year alone we’ve grown 102%. We are rapidly growing and evolving from a small start-up of 50 people to a 100 person team by the end of 2021.
A few years ago, we set up shop here on the 5th floor of Homer Street in Yaletown. In five years, we’ve grown from a team of 6 people to over 60. We really hit our stride in 2019 and are now recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in BC. We continue to grow quarter over quarter and have no doubt 2021 is going to be our best yet!
Our Product team, like all design teams, thrives on finding solutions to our customers’ challenges. What makes us different is that every day we are hard at work creating the best solutions for marketing teams from around the world. We take great pride in being innovative, and first to market with new services. We work alongside our Sales and Dev teams to help large and small organizations address the challenges they have with storing and organizing their digital assets. The complexity of our customers’ needs is what keeps us busy, excited and always pushing to learn more about technology. We are problem solvers at our core. We design, test, tweak, design some more and, ultimately, launch our new features and services.
With customers joining the MediaValet family every day, my team is extremely busy. The Product Team started the year as a team of three, and now I’m looking for someone to join us ASAP as one of our Product Designers. I'm looking for someone who can help me continue to meet (and exceed) our customers’ needs and our company goals.
As one of our Product Designers, you will be working alongside our Product Managers and feature teams to craft and deliver beautiful experiences for our new cutting-edge features. You will be starting with low fidelity prototypes, gathering feedback along the way (both internal and external) to produce a high-fidelity design by leveraging your graphical skills - exceptional communication skills are imperative throughout this process. Working with your product designer peers, you will also strive to continuously research and evolve our design system. We use pen and paper, along with industry-standard applications like Sketch, Invision, Adobe CC. What makes my team amazing is that we’re always ready to quickly absorb, understand, and resolve complicated technical issues, and we’re all open to receiving constructive criticism. We understand that there are multiple methods of completing a task.
How will I decide who to meet with for this opportunity? When considering who’s the right fit with my team, years of experience certainly is terrific. However, equally of interest, are those who can demonstrate their self-starter attitudes, a passion and desire to roll up their sleeves to do a great job, and have skillsets and work ethics that are in line with ours.
