Senior Product Designer - San Francisco Office, Bay Area Remote

As a Product Designer, you will craft successful, meaningful products that help thousands of developers deliver better applications to their users, faster.

The Product Design Role

Product designers at CircleCI have a strong problem-solving process and a demonstrated ability to explain that process. We are curious, ask questions, dig deep into problems, and are excited to learn new things. We are strong visual problem solvers who understand the key elements of visual design including visual hierarchy, layout, typography, color, etc and also have the ability to communicate structure, relationships and flow through visual assets. We value curiosity and seek every opportunity to engage with customers and utilize design to tackle real user problems.

A successful product designer will have previous experience in developer tools or other complex products. Someone coming into this role should have experience using data analytics, user testing, and research to validate design decisions, as well experience guiding users through initial discovery to engagement  

Our designers are empathetic and collaborative and are able to work well with people from different backgrounds. We advocate for design decisions through data, research, and strong critical thinking, but also engage in participatory discussions, take feedback, and use that feedback to produce the best possible designs for our customers.

This is a key role with the opportunity to contribute holistically to improving the experience of our product for users.

The Senior Role

We look to our senior designers to understand the domain and be responsible for the design function for their product areas, think holistically about user journeys across the product, outline design processes, and clarify expectations. They understand their team’s domain and share their knowledge frequently with teammates. They mentor junior members of the design team, deliver praise and constructive feedback to teammates and business partners, and actively seek feedback on their own performance.

Senior product designers build positive relationships and help teammates overcome obstacles, contributing to the healthy functioning of the broader organization. Does this describe your own ambitions and values? Check out more details about the role below!
