Company Vision

Software and digital systems are becoming larger parts of our daily lives. Most companies are becoming software companies with increasing part of value they create coming from software.

In such a world, having software systems functioning seamlessly is taken for granted. Think about last time twitter or slack went down. How irritated you felt.

We aim to solve this problem by providing software engineers better tooling to keep systems running smoothly. We believe there are lots to be done in this space and we need your help in building this future.

What will you be doing

Our target audience is developers. Your goal is to design product features and flows that are as simple as possible.
Our product has a complicated UX, and you will be responsible for designing it in a way that’s easy to understand and visually pleasing.
You’ll need to walk the fine line between the simplicity of use and the complexity of features.
You’ll play a key role in deciding features and their implementation in collaboration with engineers.
Work closely with users and engineers to understand requirements and design the interactions
Develop process flows, wireframes, and mockups to communicate high-level design strategies or detailed interaction behaviors effectively
Design flows and experiences that convert complex app workflows into an absolute delight
Provide high-quality mockups and prototypes
Contribute to our product design language, both in style & structure
Ideate and brainstorm with other teams on products, features, and enhancements to take the product to the next level.

Who would be a good fit

2+ years of UI/UX and product design experience
Experience working with product team from research phases of a project through delivery to engineering
You can visually communicate an idea by creating quick, low-fidelity mockups such as pencil sketches.
Excellent presentation and communication skills to get the team on board with your vision
Understanding of component-based design systems
Ability to thrive in startups with a fast-paced environment and take ownership for working through ambiguity
Familiarity with code to quickly prototype: HTML 5, JavaScript, CSS/SASS, styled components, responsive interfaces
