Browse the Aisles

We are seeking an emerging design leader to join our Experience Design team. He or she will influence product strategy, help organize our UX standards, be a collaborative contributor, and lead product prototyping and UX design work. This is an opportunity to join a fast-paced team, think holistically about design and change the current grocery landscape. We prefer a “hands-on” approach that involves iterating and executing across multiple workflows.

The Experience Design team has an effective partnership with the product and development teams. We collaborate with engineers, product owners, brand clients and other executives throughout the product development lifecycle. The position requires a customer focus, a data-driven approach, and awareness of current practices for mobile and browser UX design. The ideal candidate will be passionate about design, comfortable with ambiguity, and able to act well with minimal direction.
