Job Description

Join Indigo’s Marketplace growth team. You’ll be moving the needle for the business on a weekly basis through rapid experimentation and testing new design and messaging concepts. The pace is fast, the end-product is unknown, but we’ll iterate and learn quickly with engineering, product, and analytics counterparts to have real business impact. Speed wins, when we learn fast we win. 

Our job is to meet customers where they are in their lifecycle and help them get to the next phase in their journey confidently and easily. Whether it's taking friction out of their onboarding experience, optimizing grain bid detail pages for conversion or gamifying some aspect of their grain marketing experience, you'll be focused on engaging people in ways that are truly meaningful to them and their unique needs.

As the designer for this critical team you’ll help us accomplish our goals by figuring out what makes the user’s brain tick, what gets them interested (and what doesn’t) as proven by analytics data. You’ll then determine what mini-feature, stunning visual or relatable, understandable messaging compels them to trust Indigo and come back into the product - iterating constantly until the behavioral data proves we’re on a path to better business results.

  • Translate complex requirements, quantitative data and qualitative insights into simple solutions
