Over 70,000 businesses and millions of people use 1Password to protect their most important information. We’re a kind, curious, and customer-focused team on a mission to build the world's most-loved password manager and give people more control over their data.
 Our internal design studio is responsible for the look and feel of 1Password’s brand across print, web and video. The team features animators, illustrators, web designers, digital and print designers.    
The design manager will coordinate the incoming design projects and manage the people responsible for them. You will work closely with and report to the Chief Experience Officer for creative direction.

What we're looking for:

  • 3+ years of professional project management experience, ideally in a design studio or similar
  • Experience managing and coordinating people
  • Effective time management and prioritization skills
  • Great communication skills with the ability to source design briefs from across teams
  • Expert eye for quality and detail, you don’t have to be a designer but spotting a wrong colour or a typo is important
  • Well defined sense of personal accountability, "owns it" and takes initiative
  • Bonus experience, delivering projects in a SaaS related organization

What you can expect in month 1:

  • Turn short requests into detailed design briefs ready for work
  • Understand each designer’s workload and skillset to assign new projects
  • Highlight projects needing direction and sign off to meet deadlines

What you can expect by month 3:

  • Understand the needs of each designer and what they need to grow and improve
  • Know the brand guidelines like the back of your hand and spot things that might need extra attention

What you can expect by month 6:

  • Start to plan for future projects months out as well as current workloads
  • Have shipped a broad range of high quality exciting projects
“We have a wide range of skills represented here, and that makes for a culture of personal growth through feedback and mentoring, support and critique. Our design has won awards and we have our designers to thank for that - excellence in design is one of the defining characteristics of 1Password. You should also prepare yourself for bad jokes 😃”
