What if nature could be harnessed to help farmers sustainably feed the planet? Since 2014, Indigo has questioned agriculture's full value chain to improve grower profitability, environmental sustainability, and consumer health. The company’s scientific discoveries and digital innovations have amplified new value from soil to sale, benefiting more than 10,000 growers to date. Indigo is also the company behind The Terraton Initiative, a global effort to draw down one trillion tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide by unlocking the potential of agricultural soils. In 2019, Indigo was ranked #1 on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Indigo has additional offices in Memphis, TN; Research Triangle Park, NC; Sydney, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Basel, Switzerland; and São Paulo, Brazil.

Do you believe that design can change the world? At Indigo you will have the opportunity to directly impact the future of agriculture by working on products that reinvent how crops are grown and sold.

We’re a quickly expanding UX team and we’re looking for a Lead Designer to help us create software solutions that allow farmers to use their agricultural know-how to limit the carbon impact on the environment. Indigo is constantly coming up with new product ideas and is looking for experienced designers to work collaboratively with key business stakeholders, product managers and developers to bring these ideas to life. If you thrive in fast-paced, start-up environments and are interested in the opportunity to own the design of end-to-end solutions that solve some of the most challenging problems facing modern farming, we’d love to talk.

Responsibilities

  • Own the vision and design implementation for large, complex projects including research, interaction, and visual design
  • Collaborate with Engineering and Product using various design methods to tell the user story, bring clarity to ambiguity, and articulate design decisions
  • Organize and facilitate feedback sessions from stakeholders and users, evaluate complex and potentially conflicting input appropriately, and synthesize into clear models that communicate strategic recommendations
  • Collaborate closely with design peers to ensure project work fits into the users’ overall workflow and full product structure to create a seamless end-to-end experience
  • Translate complex problems via design methods to create judiciously edited, simple solutions that successfully solve problems
  • Present designs and insights to small and large audiences across the organization in compelling fashion

Competencies

  • Can thrive and remain a calm, voice of reason in a fast-paced, constantly moving environment
  • Strong listener and communicator
  • Patience, perseverance, and an ability to roll with the punches
  • Keen design and behavioral judgement
  • Lifelong learner with insatiable curiosity
  • Exceptional ability to turn complexity into simplicity
  • Leads projects independently but knows when to seek help from manager or others
  • Can mentor and oversee junior designers’ work when appropriate

Qualifications

  • Minimum 5 years, likely 7+ years professional experience designing for desktop and mobile products
  • Experience leading complex projects from inception to completion
  • Experience designing complex responsive software web applications
  • Experience in an agile environment, working closely with Product and Dev teams
  • Big plus for experience on projects with strong focus on behavior change

Indigo is committed to living our values, specifically “creating a work environment where everyone feels respected, connected, and has opportunities to learn and grow.” As part of living our values, we strive to create a diverse and inclusive work environment where everyone feels they can be themselves and has an equal opportunity of succeeding.

  • When they search for talent, they’ll notice you signaled them.
  • Your signals are only visible to people you have signaled. You can, however, share them with others to collaborate.
