Zeus (YC S11) Is Hiring a Senior Product Designer to Build the Future of FlexLiving

Making it easy to live well — whenever, wherever

At Zeus Living, we believe housing shouldn’t constrain how, where, and when you want to live. You should be free to follow opportunity, curiosity, love, desire, friends, and family—and not just when your lease runs out. That’s why we’ve created a new, modern mode of housing, making it easy to live well—reliably, safely, comfortably, even stylishly—wherever, whenever.

At the center of everything we do are our people—our customers, partners, and our Zeus team. We wouldn’t be anything without them. That’s what our founders knew when they started Zeus Living in 2015, setting out to make renting a home easier. The goal then—and now—is to remove the stress of finding housing.

We’ve grown a lot since we started, and today we’re a hardworking team of creators, problem-solvers, and strategists who enjoy each other’s company and believe in what we do. Based in San Francisco and backed by Airbnb, Comcast, Bowery, and Initialized Capital, we’ve raised $90M in funding.

About the role
As a Senior Product Designer at Zeus Living, you’ll contribute to the strategy, vision, and execution of our core product offering. You’ll be responsible for the design solutions that shape our guest experiences as they plan, book, arrive, and live with Zeus Living.

You’ll work collaboratively with our product, engineering, and business teams to iterate and build usable, useful, and delightful experiences that help people who want to live with Zeus. You’ll engage across all stages of a project, using your skills in concepting, prototyping, service design, information design, workshop facilitation, and user research.

While your responsibilities will start largely as an individual contributor, you’ll be expected to lead the growth of our Design team and practice in years to come. You’ll have opportunities to manage as we expand the team, so interest in leadership is a plus.

-A portfolio showing your high-quality UX, interaction, and visual design
-Interest in qualitative and quantitative data. You care deeply about grounding decisions in real data, marketplace needs & norms, and business OKRs.

-You know when to apply the appropriate level of fidelity to your work, being conscious of deadlines & deliverables to communicate your solution.
-Interest in mentorship and management.
