Who is LeanDNA?
LeanDNA is helping solve the $150B problem that global manufacturers face–excess inventory tying up critical working capital and keeping manufacturing companies from being as efficient as they need to be. And today, how to survive in a supply chain shortage economy. Without an effective way to optimize inventory, manufacturers are buying too much, too little, or placing inventory in the wrong place at the wrong time. Companies are stuck fighting operational fires related to critical inventory shortages, creating delays in delivering their product to customers on time.
LeanDNA's factory inventory optimization and shortage management solution quickly empowers supply chain professionals to dramatically reduce excess inventory, deliver on time, and establish operational command of their organization’s inventory operations. LeanDNA optimizes the inventory management process by adding the much-needed (and much-appreciated) artificial intelligence into the forgotten area of the business: The factory. It’s not just about smart inventory planning—true optimization occurs when procurement leaders have command over the operation, and the supply chain teams tasked with bringing those plans to life have total visibility, AI-driven recommendations, and a clear game plan for hitting their inventory goals every time.
LeanDNA shattered record sales in 2021 while building the market for factory inventory optimization solutions for discrete manufacturers. Benefitting from very little direct competition, a tremendous ROI, rapid implementation, highly referenceable customers, and an addressable market of $1.7B in the U.S. alone, LeanDNA is well-positioned for rapid growth. Manufacturing sites across 17 countries rely on LeanDNA every day to optimize inventory and prevent shortages–and after a short 5-week implementation, they reduce inventory by 14% and shortages by 32% within the first year.
What is a Product Designer?
As a Product Designer, you will play a critical role as we build a product that moves users away from the outdated and manual processes that exist in factories today (spreadsheets, email, BI tools, etc.) and into the future of intuitive, purpose-built, AI-driven software. You’ll report to our Product Design Lead on a growing team, working side-by-side with Product and Engineering to design the future of our tool and create meaningful product experiences.
What you’ll do
Work closely with product management to translate use cases from product requirements to intuitive designs.
Advocate for our users by using standard research methodologies to understand the user journey and pain points.
Iterate on UX deliverables, including sketches, wireframes, prototypes, and visual designs and present them to peers, internal stakeholders and customers.
Collaborate with engineering for hand-off and implementation of design requirements and adapt designs to what’s technically feasible when needed.
Participate in the product development process including roadmapping, brainstorming, prioritizing features, and reporting bugs and inconsistencies.
What you'll bring
2+ years relevant experience designing engaging digital products and/or experiences
A strong portfolio of design work demonstrating strategic thinking
Ability to collaborate effectively across various levels of the organization and build consensus with design
Intimate knowledge and experience with current design and prototyping tools (we use Figma)
A firm understanding of agile software development
Basic familiarity with HTML & CSS
Curiosity and a desire to continually learn and grow as a designer
