Senior Product Designer

| Bellevue

The Position: We’re adding another senior designer to our UX team to drive design for our Agile, project, and financial planning capabilities and help establish suite-wide design patterns. As one of few senior people on the design team, they will have a major impact on our design team, our users and our company’s success.

You: You’re used to being at the table with senior product management and development leaders. You want the ball, yet you also crave teamwork. You delight in weighing the pros and cons of a solution with others and you get how this frames decisions and brings cohesion.

You love taking risks with new designs but appreciate the value of the interfaces users already know. Blending the old with the new is satisfying – you’re both quixotic and pragmatic. And you finish the job with the right micro-interactions and polish. You know how the ideals of design pair with the needs of the business.

Us: We have our eyes on being the next billion-dollar software company and we’re well on our way. Our suite of capabilities for managing the business of information technology poses challenges and upside for software innovators. We need even more gutsy, quick-thinking talent on our team to make it happen. As designers we are always looking for ways to improve and we have the freedom to evolve our design paradigms and our design culture. We take our craft seriously and care deeply about making our products easy, useful, and pleasing, but we’re a fun team and we cut ourselves some slack.

What we want you to do:

We want you to translate complex requirements into concrete designs. Requirements won’t always be locked down or well documented, but you will see this as an opportunity to add the user perspective and shape the experience from an early stage. You will partner with product teams to help visualize and form product capabilities and will often surprise the team with new approaches.

The window to deeply influence the product can be fleeting. You’ll rapidly build and iterate on process flows, high-level wireframes, and high and low fidelity prototypes. And you’ll test designs with discount usability techniques (RITE, heuristic analysis, cognitive walkthroughs, etc.). Then, as developers develop, you will stay close to keep the design true, tune your ideas, and ship winning features.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 5+ years designing complicated, multi-user, multi-step capabilities
  • Breadth of experience drawn from designing in multiple distinct domains
  • Experience designing from concept through to first customer ship
  • Experience as the lead designer, partnering with lead product managers and developers
  • Has shipped features through Agile development, and frequent product releases
  • Experience conducting discount usability studies
  • Experience using Axure and Sketch

Desired Qualifications:

  • Higher education in HCI or related discipline
  • Has supported and mentored other designers
  • Experience designing for a high degree of customer configuration
  • Comprehension of financial or related business concepts
  • Experience designing data visualization
  • Can conceive and sketch UI on-the-fly in group discussion
  • General understanding of and ability to program with HTML/CSS
  • Curious, invests in self-learning
  • Systematic, thoughtful, critical thinker able to recognize patterns, spot anomalies, and draw robust conclusions

What does career growth look like on your team?

Each person is empowered to make choices every day that have direct impact on everyone's success. All ideas are given fair consideration. In my 5+ years here I have seen great career growth - everything from junior engineers right out of college up to highly experienced leaders encouraged to take that next big step.

Tanner Means

Senior Software Development Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I constantly ask what is speeding them up or slowing them down. I ask for things to be thought of as "what if" and "why not". Oftentimes, especially in a team setting, a solution is simpler than expected. Collectively, we can solve most problems on our own, but for the things that need muscle or grease, I make those my priority.
