Job type: Full-time

Category: Design


We're looking for a Design Lead to help us help our clients build incredible teams all over the world.

Organisations need to find the right people to solve the challenges they're addressing. People need to find the right organisations where they'll thrive in their career. We unite these two parties - leveraging design, software and data to facilitate the interactions that address everyone's needs.

We're a 'design-led' organisation. We believe most B2B software is (still!) designed for the buyer, not the user - fundamentally, most people just don't engage with B2B software. We're different - investing heavily in design and customer success and going 'above and beyond' to educate, guide and empower our clients. We've recently invested a considerable sum into a re-brand with Focus Lab and are looking for someone to build on top of that foundation, ensuring we win on design for years to come.

You'll work across our entire 'design ecosystem' - whilst you'll focus on our core product experience, you'll also contribute to our internal tools and all other aspects of the Pinpoint experience, from our clients to our colleagues. You can expect to have a say in all design decisions from new ideas through to iterations of existing functionality and should be just as comfortable reviewing engagement data and talking to end-users as you are in Sketch.

Key Responsibilities

Day-to-day, you'll:

  • Work with our product team, reviewing engagement, usage and support data and talking to customers to identify issues / opportunities and then design workflows, mockups and visual solutions to address them.

  • Identify and define new features / concepts and design the end-to-end workflows, mockups and visual solutions required to get those features built and implemented.

  • Take ownership of our design system, expanding our visual language over time, refining existing components and ensuring we adhere to the system as a business.

  • Constantly iterate and improve on our existing work based on feedback from the wider team, end users, your own experience, etc.

  • Contribute to the non-technical aspects of our business - from our marketing content to the office, we want every aspect of the Pinpoint experience to feel 'designed' and not an afterthought - this is as true for our employee experience as it is for our clients.

Skills, Knowledge & Expertise

Ideally, you'll:

  • Have prior experience designing digital products (with examples of work you've contributed to in the past).

  • Have an understanding of the entire design process, from identifying the problem through to the design and execution of a solution. 

  • Be comfortable designing mockups / prototypes in a tool of your choice. (We use Sketch, but you can use whatever you'd like).

  • Have a passion for the Software as a Service (SaaS) space and be interested in our industry. There are fantastic designers in every sector, but we'd love you to love this one.

  • Take pride in the 'why' behind your designs. You'll be happy explaining your decision making process and rationale to others.

  • Enjoy learning. We move fast and have big ambitions - the only way we'll achieve them is if the growth trajectory of our people is as fast as the growth trajectory of our business. You'll constantly strive to improve as a designer and will constantly push standards.

Benefits

We care deeply about making Pinpoint an incredible place to work and invest a significant amount of time and energy into creating and maintaining a company culture that provides our team with a generous level of support whilst inspiring them to do their best work. 

The specific benefits / perks we offer are continually evolving, but currently include: 

  • Full healthcare coverage for you and your family 

  • Generous personal development budget

  • Top of the line equipment (4K Monitors, Macbook Pro, etc.)

  • Flexible working (choose your hours / days / where you work, within reason)

  • Competitive salary with regular pay reviews

  • Generous option grants

    Who We Are

    Process Street is a SaaS platform that helps companies manage their processes and workflows to make recurring work fun, fast, and faultless. We are a lean, flexible, 100% distributed team that relies on systems to improve output 10X. Process Street is backed by leading investors, including Accel, Salesforce, and Atlassian. 

    A distributed team means freedom and flexibility: All 40-plus of us work wherever we’d like—reliable internet access is our only requirement. Spread across 9 time zones in 10 countries, we sign into Slack and open up our work tools on the schedule that fits our lives best. We communicate asynchronously, work autonomously, and take ownership of our work. Distributed work isn’t for everyone, but if it fits your management style, it’s a life-changing benefit.

    Camaraderie from afar: Being 100% distributed doesn’t stop us from getting to know each other— we have daily conversations in chat, weekly “coffee” pairings with coworkers, and once a year we all come together for an all-team retreat.

    Our values: As a small, nimble company, we want our employees to feel empowered to make decisions and define the future of our company, so our values include:

    • Act like an owner (Agency!)
    • Default to action (Processes are great; bureaucracy isn't!)
    • Focus on the process (See? Great.)
    • Practice prioritization (There are an infinite number of useful things to do. We trust you to pick the best ones.)
    • Pay attention to details (Our customers count on us!)
    • Over-communicate everything. Twice (See what we did there?)

    The Opportunity

    We’re looking for a Product Designer to ‘own’ design who is excited about the opportunity of building Process Street from the ground up. You should have a strong portfolio of professional design projects that focus on simple UI and intuitive UX.

    What You’ll Do

    • Promote and deliver exceptional user experience design from discovery to delivery
    • Design and deliver wireframes, user journeys, hi-fidelity mockups and prototypes optimized for web and mobile interfaces
    • Conduct user interviews, usability testing, and analysis
    • Contribute to and help maintain our design system
    • Partner with our engineers, product managers, and stakeholders to oversee user experience for features from conception to launch

    About You

    • You should have a portfolio showing UX problem solving and great visual designs
    • Must demonstrate a clean, simple design aesthetic coupled with a passion for pixel perfection and usability
    • Ability to thoughtfully present and defend your designs and to communicate complex processes
    • You jump in and learn what you don’t know
    • You thrive in fast-paced environments and know how to switch hats and fill in the blanks when needed
    • Excellent communicator who can clearly articulate design decisions from the user’s perspective, while backing it up with research and data
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English

    What You’ll Bring

    • 2+ years of commercial experience in UX/UI Design
    • Experience in using UX design best practices to design solutions and an understanding of mobile and responsive design 
    • Expertise in standard UX software such as Sketch and Invision
    • Experience designing digital apps and systems; you have helped ship products before, ideally in the SaaS/B2B space

    Bonus Points For 

    • Design systems experience
    • Working knowledge of HTML5/CSS3 and ability to communicate with engineers when handing off designs 
    • UI interactions with just-right animations and transitions
    • Data visualization, dashboards, and reporting
    • An understanding of Business Process Management and Workflow automation

    But we want to add this:

    We strongly believe that diversity contributes to a broader collective perspective that will consistently lead to a better company and better products. We are working hard to increase the diversity of our team wherever we can and we actively encourage everyone to consider becoming a part of it.
