We are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workforce, reflecting the communities we serve.

If you are ready to make a difference as part of the world’s greatest sports team, apply to join our team today!


Welcome to Product Design at DICK’S Sporting Goods, where we specialize in delivering retail excellence along every aspect of the customer journey driven through Technology. Our mission focuses on crafting intuitive, easy-to-use products that span across our business. We are looking for a new team member who can enable human-centered practices that inspire, innovate, and deliver elevated experiences for our customers and products.

Millions of Athletes come to DICK’S Sporting Goods every day, exploring, finding and discovering new training and gear that will inspire them and help them achieve their goals on the field, trail, court, studio and anywhere they pursue their passions.

As the Group Product Designer of the eCommerce Search & Discovery team, you will drive the overall design strategy towards a more thoughtful and engaging experience for searching, finding and learning about the products Athletes seek. From the journey of Athletes, with varying experience-levels and preferences, and our breadth of categories and sports we serve, the eCommerce product experience is where DICK’S Sporting Goods can bring trusted expertise and inspired storytelling to life online.

In this highly visible role, you will lead a team of four designers in the Search & Discovery group and collaborate with teams representing the complete eCommerce journey online and in app. Additionally, you will partner with teams from our Marketing, Merchandising and Loyalty domains within DSG Tech, not to mention an integrated relationship with teams leading Personalization and our eCommerce business.

A successful candidate will be an inspiring creative leader, demonstrate deep understanding of the retail consumer landscape and eCommerce capabilities, be a self-starter, an end-to-end service and experience maker, with strong visual design and design system foundations to give structure to the Athlete and our team. If this sounds like you, your next role may be at DSG Tech, delivering technology and experiences as a trusted outfitter for Athletes on any journey.

As a Group Product Designer, you will manage up to six product designers working across two or three products. In this role, you enable the delivery of product experiences rooted in human-centered principles that support strategic priorities. Your influence and expertise enable you to promote the value of design as you continue to build partnerships in support of the products you manage. As a design leader, you provide direct oversight in the organization and delivery of high-quality products while balancing people management and opportunities for development. Focus areas may include:

Human-Centered Advocate
Expanding teammate understanding and application of human-centered design, stakeholder exposure and involvement to critical HCD activities, and finding creative ways to influence HCD across multiple products

Evidence & Risk
Guiding teammates on how to avoid extensive research practices through design maturity; understanding that the nature of the evidence needed will parallel the nature of the risk presented to the customer and/or the business

Guiding teammates through a process rooted in problem solving frameworks, where they leverage mixed-methods research to support identification and understanding of users (and systems), journeys, and top problems.

Learning is a critical part of your management philosophy, which allows teams to create ways to validate the effectiveness of the experience pre-launch through experimentation, prototype testing, A/B testing, usability testing, and so forth.

Guiding teammates on how to leverage mixed methods data insights to drive decision making

This is where everything comes together as your teams commit to delivering an end-to-end experience. Product designers leverage Homefield, our in-house design system, to communicate and pair with software engineers throughout the development process.

You provide the appropriate forums to seek feedback and understanding amongst your teams, stakeholders, and leadership in order to aggregate and activate this feedback in meaningful ways.

Leadership & People Management
You are expanding your capabilities in leadership by managing multiple product teams, developing a deeper understanding of cross-product domains and how this supports the overall strategy of the portfolio, defined by the Director. In addition, you are responsible for supporting career development and growth opportunities for designers who report to you.

This is a fully remote position.
