Who we are looking for?

We are looking for a designer to lead our efforts in creating a world class system to manage automations. In this role, you will ensure that our users are able to identify the health of their automations, manage their automation deployment lifecycles, and are able to put effective governance policies in place. As a core product functionality, this role will have the biggest impact in making sure that product is always enterprise ready. It is perfect for someone who enjoys working on transparency, security and governance. This role will start as being a player-coach where you will actively design and manage another designer. As work requirements increase, you’ll be expected to hire and grow your team. 

Responsibilities

  • Drive an end-to-end intuitive user experience for all automation management areas. 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.

  • Grow and manage the designer currently in your team. Hire more designers based on requirements. 

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

  • Produce polished visual design specs that are clear and directed

  • Iterate through design feedback from internal stakeholders and customers

  • Own your features. Think through edge-cases, refine specs, find reasonable design solutions, and work with engineers to build them. Understand the current landscape of the product, 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  monitoring and audit capabilities, or federation and governance systems is strongly preferred.

  • A strong portfolio or a case study of your past work that details your challenges, ideas, and impact. We are specifically looking for projects that went into production where you’ve distilled a complex problem into a simple interface. What were your considerations/constraints? What was the impact of your work? As this is a Lead role, your projects should show that you’re capable of leading designs on full features, including scoping requirements, and demonstrate that you are capable of understanding systems.

  • 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 in developing the design practice within an organization. We are still a young team and looking for people whose past experiences can help us grow.
