About Hopper

At Hopper, we’re on a mission to make booking travel faster, easier, and more transparent.

With over $235M CAD in funding from leading investors in both Canada and the US, Hopper is primed to continue its path toward becoming the go-to way to book travel as the world continues its shift to mobile.

Recognized as the fastest-growing travel app by Forbes and one of the world’s most innovative companies by Fast Company two years in a row, Hopper has been downloaded over 35 million times and has helped travelers plan over 100 million trips and counting. The app has received high praise in the form of mobile accolades such as the Google Play Award for Standout Startup of 2016 and Apple’s App Store Best of 2015.

  • Work autonomously in a cross-functional, agile product group with Product Managers, Engineers, and Data Analysts to prioritize and build new features
  • Regularly give and receive feedback with other Designers to ensure quality, consistency, and collaboration
  • Have a deep understanding of user needs and business objectives in your agile group’s product area
  • Prioritize appropriately: Use good judgement to make appropriate tradeoffs to speed up product learning and balance competing priorities

A PERFECT CANDIDATE HAS:

  • Strong portfolio showcasing your past work and process
  • You have at least 2-4 years of experience designing modern consumer-focused products
  • Experience shipping mobile product in an agile environment on cross-platform (iOS & Android)

  • Incredible product judgement
  • The ability to flourish with minimal guidance, be proactive, and handle ambiguity
  • Have a great sense for aesthetics that could both work with or extend Hopper’s style
