Great opportunity to join a growing design team with impressive Design leadership on an Enterprise SaaS unicorn scale-up. Remote-first policy with travel to Manchester office once a quarter. Great opportunity to impact a first-class product and develop your career.
An impressive valuation of $1.5billion, a great track record of case studies for enterprises like Cisco, Slack, Accenture and more. Their success thus far is a testament to an environment of great support and encouragement to do the uncomfortable work of progress.
They have a design team of approximately 7 people, with this hire being one of three permanent additions and 2 contracts. They also have an engaged community of users and a strategic ambition to develop a premier SaaS product to consolidate their excellence thus far.
The remit: put users in the process!
Design has only existed in the company for the past 3 years, so there is still a largely undefined scope for potential. You’ll need to be comfortable exploring and experimenting with complex material. Opinionated and confident designers who are also good at taking critique will thrive, and stakeholders are a big part of the business so experience here is key!
As the Principle UI, you’ll form their next generation Design System, ahead of their flagship product launch next year. The goal is to create impeccable user interactions with the product and empowering users with a sense of delight. You’ll be collaborating with the Principle Product Designers, UX and Research, confident in understanding each of these knowledge areas and how they relate to yours.
This will importantly include mentoring and leading others in your team, while still keeping a hands-on approach and taking responsibility for the end result.
The Director has lead award winning teams for Design Systems in the past and intends to produce the same calibre of work here.
