Senior Product Designer

We are looking for a strong individual contributor who is excited about making sense of complex systems, thrives on ambiguity and loves converting ideas into tangible prototypes.

Full-time · Bengaluru, India (Remote for now)

As Obvious, we’ve built some exceptional digital products that each heralded a new era across e-commerce, finance, healthcare, education and more. Many of these already take up well-deserved space on smartphones today — think Dunzo, Swiggy, Myntra *et al*. We’ve loved doing it so much that we want to go the full distance by ourselves, all systems go.

And that’s where Obvious X comes in.

Obvious X is a high-agency, high-autonomy, and impact-driven initiative dedicated to solving new problems and building life-changing products — all in-house.

We aspire to be distinct in our mission, vision, and approach, and become a nesting space for products that will turn industries over their heads. We will apply the knowledge we've gained over the years of building multiple success stories, to handpick the problems we want to solve. With evidence-based conviction and a whole host of design and engineering best practices at our disposal, we intend to build prolific long-lived products.

There’s ample room for taking risks and letting evidence and experience guide us. If you’re curious to know how we intend to do that, we break it down in our post: Say Hello to Obvious X.

By building a multi-disciplinary team — where engineering and design meets product and business — we will come together as a synergic mix of experience and passion to create meaning.

Our end goal is to create people-centric, self-sustaining products the right way, and with the right people — and you could be one of them.

We are a remote-first organisation, and strongly believe in building a diverse team at Obvious X — one that is not limited by geographical boundaries, but rather empowered by varied perspectives. We are happy to receive applications from folks everywhere, and have strong guidelines set in place to make sure we foster a healthy, comfortable, and remote workplace.
