As we keep on growing, we are now looking for a new colleague for our product team. Will you join us in our quest to create a healthier and happier world?
What this role looks like
As a Product Designer at Virtuagym you have a direct impact on improving the lives of thousands of fitness business owners and millions of end-users. The number of our users keeps on growing every month and there is a lot of innovation happening in our industry, which means that we are continuously challenged to come up with the best solutions for our customers, to ensure they can run their health club or PT studio efficiently and effectively, while helping people get fit and healthy.
Being a Product Designer at Virtuagym, you will continuously help improve Virtuagym's products and services. You will become part of a product team that is responsible for a specific part of our system, such as training, coaching, engagement, integrations, memberships and billing or scheduling and will make sure that our customers will love using the solutions you have built with your team.
As such, you love working with a team to create solutions that solve real problems and users love to work with. You understand how important a strong user experience is for any product that gets used on a daily basis. Therefore understanding the problem you’re solving is key to the start of any design for you, and before diving into the design process, you make it your mission to know our customer through and through.
As a Product Designer at Virtuagym you are involved in the creation of new solutions from the start, working directly with a product manager to translate the product strategy into tangible projects that you help shape, refine and build with your team. During this process you will work directly with your development team, to make sure they understand exactly what to build and the end result works as amazing in practice as you have envisioned it. You really own the end solution, meaning you and your team are also responsible for resolving issues after release.
