At Benevity, design the change you want to see in the world.


The Product Experience team is growing, and we have fantastic opportunities for Product Designers on many of our teams. We have a clear product vision for igniting new ways of inspiring daily goodness in the hands of clients, employees, customers and charitable causes. We need your help on that journey. Benevity's clients are global brands that are part of your everyday life. They use the software we design and build to run their corporate goodness programs. Their goal is to attract, retain and engage today’s diverse global workforce by connecting employees to the millions of causes through our ecosystem


Take some time to read through this job posting, and if your passions and experience match what we have laid out here, please consider applying. Experience comes in many forms: skills are transferable, and passion goes a long way. We know that diversity makes for the best problem-solving and creative thinking, which is why we’re dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team.


Your role
As a Product Designer, you will be part of an empowered product team applying your experience and skills to design solutions for the product outcomes we want to achieve. Some of the problems you could be helping solve include: 

  • Helping streamline the program administrators’ experience of managing complex global goodness programs.
  • Working to provide the world’s biggest brands with the ability to run giving and volunteering programs with their customers.
  • Delving deep into the world of finance to find new ways of getting funds into the hands of causes faster.
  • Enabling our product teams to deliver better experiences through data design and user management. 


We are hiring for several teams, are open to various experience levels, and understand that years of experience are not the only indicators of skills and capabilities. 


As a Product Designer at Benevity, you will:

  • Report directly to a product line Lead and be responsible for the design quality of your product area.
  • Conduct UX research to uncover and define the problems and evaluate the usability of what you have created.
  • Ensure that your product area meets the highest standards of accessibility and inclusiveness.
  • Actively participate in ongoing planning activities with your team. Ensuring that work flowing into the team accurately captures acceptance criteria for functional and non-functional requirements.
  • Advocate for your work cross-functionally across Benevity.
  • Build strong, inclusive, collaborative relationships with peers, including designers, product managers, developers, and other cross-functional team members. 
  • Contribute thoughtfully to building an inclusive environment for everyone.


What you bring 


You have years of experience as a Product Designer delivering great software to users across the consumer or enterprise space. You can communicate the outcomes you have achieved and the decisions you made. Most importantly, you are passionate about building inclusive and accessible experiences. 

  • Can demonstrate the ability to use various methods to get the most out of all phases of design thinking.
  • Well-crafted visual aesthetic, eye for pattern recognition, and an eye for detail.
  • You have developed communication, collaboration and creative problem-solving skills: an ability to lead and the humility to adapt.
  • Conduct your own generative and evaluative research studies.
  • Comfortable leading meetings and facilitating workshops. 
  • You are a cultural contributor and mentor to others.
  • Can use the right design tool at the right time to generate insights, high and low-fidelity prototypes, and developer-ready documentation. 
  • You start from a place of curiosity, seek out feedback from everyone, and foster a space where everyone can participate.


What you can expect

  • Be a part of a product experience team that genuinely cares for each other and the work we do - we are a very supportive and empathetic group.
  • A team that's growing in size: which means opportunities for leadership if you are interested.
  • Giving, volunteering, and granting are surprisingly complex and rewarding problem spaces to work in.
  • To become a better product designer and have a tangible impact on the world here at Benevity.
  • Focus on outcomes, not output. Creating more acts of goodness in the world guides everything we do.
  • Have regular conversations with your lead and manager about your personal growth as a designer.
  • A flexible work location. We have offices in Calgary, Victoria, and Toronto, but remote work is also an option.
  • A safe and collaborative environment, where we design for everyone.
  • Autonomy to balance the needs of the business with the expectations of your personal life.
  • $2,500 per year in charitable donations and volunteer matching through our giving program.

Our Interview Process
Our hiring process is designed to be a good experience for both you and us.

Instead, we focus on understanding the Why, What, and How you achieved the outcomes you have as a designer. After being contacted by the Benevity people team for an introductory call, you can expect: 

  • Initial interview with our design manager focused on how your skills match our job posting (60-90 min)
  • The In-depth Portfolio presentation where you share a deep dive into your past work (90 minutes)
  • The Team Interview where you get to meet some of the members of your product team (90 minutes)
  • Interview with product experience leadership (30 minutes)
