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

  • About Us

    At GovPredict, we build products that make government more transparent and politics more efficient. We help organizations navigate and guide public policy with a comprehensive platform that unifies advocacy, government relations, and fundraising teams.

    We are a 100% non-partisan company -- and we really mean it! Our clients fall on all sides of every issue, and we provide the same powerful technology to them all. Our team members are also all along the political spectrum, and we want everyone to feel welcome. The only rule is that our personal political views never affect our work. We believe that every organization has the right and the duty to analyze government policy, come to their own conclusions, and promote their points of view to the public (and public officials). 

    Good companies can be built quickly. Greatness takes hard work over time. We want people who are dedicated and want to invest themselves in GovPredict just as much as we are dedicated to our people and invest in them. We are a team of relentless problem-solvers and we believe in professional development and promotion from within.

    GovPredict is headquartered in Washington, DC, the heart of American politics. Our engineering offices are located in Chișinău, Moldova and in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. We have a friendly, collaborative, hard-working team that is dedicated to building the best public affairs software in the world. 

    The industry has gotten stale, and we're working to build something better. Organizations deserve the most modern, comprehensive tools available to monitor the political and policy landscape and protect their missions. If you want to help drive that forward, come work with us!

    This is a big opportunity, and we want someone who can take the lead in ensuring every interaction with GovPredict is exciting, engaging, and modern. You need to be adept at taking descriptions of niche market segments and designing materials that will spark specific emotional reactions in those segments.

    • Demonstrated ability to take the emotional motivators and general preferences listed in a brief for different target segments and translate this understanding into a design language that elicits specific responses.
    • Willingness to iterate and optimize web designs based on data around conversion rates and site user behavior.
