About Workato:

Workato is the only integration and automation platform that is as simple as it is powerful — and because it’s built to power the largest enterprises, it is quite powerful. 

Simultaneously, it’s a low-code/no-code platform. This empowers any user (dev/non-dev) to painlessly automate workflows across any apps and databases.

We’re proud to be named a leader by both Forrester and Gartner and trusted by 7,000+ of the world's top brands such as BoxGrabSlack, and more. But what is most exciting is that this is only the beginning. 

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for a Design Manger for Build and Manage Workflows team. As a core product functionality, this role will have the biggest impact on defining Workato’s ease of use and growth.

 

It is perfect for a team leader, manager who enjoys working on complex requirements and is comfortable delving into data structure. This role will start as being a player-coach where you will actively design and manage 2-3 designers. As work requirements increase, you’ll be expected to hire and grow your team. 

Responsibilities

  • Provide leadership, direction, and mentorship for a team of UX Designers.

  • Drive an end-to-end intuitive user experience for Workato’s workflow builder, and automation management experiences. This includes collaborating closely with the product managers to define the product scope, possibilities and context. Once defined, develop low and high fidelity mockups and prototypes to effectively articulate your design decisions.

  • Work in close collaboration with researchers, designers, writers, and UI engineers to create a product that has low friction for adoption and is delightful to use

  • Iterate through design feedback from internal stakeholders and customers.

  • Own features that you and your team are working on. Think through edge-cases, refine specs, find reasonable design solutions, and work with engineers to build them. Understand the current landscape of Workato, and create designs that fit flawlessly in a user's journey.

  • Leverage analytics tools to measure success, present opportunities, and support decision-making.

  • Be a constant user advocate in every aspect of your work. 

 

Requirements

  • 5-7+ years of experience designing complex products. Previous experience designing a workflow builder, or working with APIs, or integration products is strongly preferred.

  • Experience leading or managing UX design teams.

  • A strong portfolio or a case study of your past work that details your challenges, ideas, and impact. 

  • A solid grasp of user-centered design and testing methodologies. Ability to define research questions and work with our User Researcher on best methods to answer them.

  • Ability to effectively present designs to stakeholders, and rally them to a shared vision. All design decisions should be grounded in design/psych theories/ research/ analytics.

  • Awareness of current and upcoming design patterns and the ability to critique them.

  • Ability to function independently, be self-directed and to thrive in ambiguity. 

  • Team player, willing to help and share knowledge with team members, open to feedback and constructive criticism.

  • Experience mentoring junior designers and contributing to developing the design practice within an organization. We are still a young team and looking for people whose experiences can help us grow.
