Senior Product Designer

Elastic is the leading software provider for making structured and unstructured data usable in real time for search, logging, security and analytics use cases. Since its initial release in 2012, Elastic's products have achieved more than 100 million cumulative downloads.

We believe that diversity drives our vibe. We unite employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

Engineering Philosophy

Engineering a highly complex distributed system that is easy to operate via elegantly designed APIs is a non-trivial effort. It requires solid software development skills, and more importantly, a sharp mind and the ability to think like a user. We also care deeply about giving you full ownership of what you’re working on. Our company fundamentally believes great minds achieve greatness when they are set free and are surrounded and challenged by their peers, which is clearly visible in our organization. At Elastic, we effectively don’t have a hierarchy to speak of. We feel that anyone needs to be in the position to comment on truly anything, regardless of his or her role within the company.

What You'll be Doing:
  • Provide product designs & prototypes.
  • Maintain our Sketch library and keep parity once your designs are coded.
  • Provide design recommendations and support through code review for a large team.
What You've Done:
  • 5+ years of design experience working on complex web applications or SaaS products.
  • Experience with Sketch, specifically in the context of developing a design system.
  • Facility with thinking in terms of systems, marked by an ability to make design decisions that scale and result in reusable patterns, palettes, and components.
  • Considers how low-level design decisions affect the big picture and the future evolution of the UX.
  • A positive attitude and a matching commitment to innovate
  • The ability to code your designs in HTML and Sass or a similar preprocessor.
  • General terminal and git/GitHub skills.
  • Familiarity with JS frameworks like React or Angular.
  • Some understanding of Dev ops, business analytics or security mindsets and needs.
  • A love for animation. Familiarity with tools like Pivotal, Framer or CSS animations is a big advantage.
  • Experience building accessible designs.
Additional Information
  • Deeply competitive pay, medical, dental, vision, disability, benefits
  • Equity
  • Catered lunches, snacks, and beverages in most offices
  • An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life
  • Passionate people building great products
  • Employees with a wide variety of interests
  • Your age is only a number. It doesn't matter if you're just out of college or your children are; we need you for what you can do.
  • Distributed-first company with employees all over the world, some even fly south for the winter :)

    We are at the forefront of creating the latest FinTech category and we are rapidly expanding our product & design team. We’re looking for someone with a proven track record of success who can thrive in a fast-paced, self-starter environment.
     
    Company Overview
     
    Tesorio is a high-growth, early-stage startup backed by some of the Bay Area’s most prominent Venture Capital firms (First Round, Floodgate, Y Combinator) and the world’s top finance execs (e.g. the ex-CFO of Oracle, the ex-CFO of Yahoo, and the founder of Adaptive Insights). 
     
    We built software that applies proprietary machine learning models to help manage a core problem that all Mid-Market businesses face: managing, predicting, and collecting cash. As we’ve taken this solution to market over the last 18 months, we’ve been able to bring on some great clients like Veeva Systems, Box, WP Engine, Rainforest QA, and many more. 
     
    Tesorio’s Cash Flow Performance platform is a sought after solution for the modern-day CFO’s toughest problems. Companies such as Anaplan have successfully tackled forecasting revenues and expenses, however, no other system has been built from the ground up to help companies understand the complexities around cash flow and take action to optimize the core lifeblood of their business.

    • You have experience thriving in a fast-moving agile environment, designing while shipping and always iterating. 
    • You are comfortable learning about and working in a complex domain.
    • You can think big and create divergent concepts, keeping the project goals in mind, and then focus down and spec out every edge case.

    Responsibilities
    • Own the research and design for our collections product.
    • We’re looking for a leader to guide the project from concept to launch, through the following phases: Conduct user research to understand the scope of the problem and the user needs.
    • Design workshops to identify multiple high level features.
    • Conduct user research to quantify the value of potential features in order to define project scope.
    • Produce multiple design concepts at a wireframe level.
    • Conduct user research to identify the winning concept.
    • Design flows and experiences that are incredibly simple and elegant.
    • Produce pixel-perfect mocks.
    • Assist in writing product specifications in association with product manager.
    • Manage product quality during buildout.
    • Gather post launch feedback and make adjustments to the product as necessary.

    Experience and Skills
    • 4+ years of experience working in UX or Product Design.
    • Excellent communication skills--you can articulate the rationale for design decisions and rationalize every decision.
    • Experience designing and running user research sessions.
    • Highly proficient with design tools, ideally Sketch.
    • Highly proficient with prototyping tools such as Invision, Framer, etc. Comfortable working with product managers and others on product specifications.

    ABOUT STRONGDM


    strongDM is a customer-first company that has a rabid fan base. When was the last time you heard things like:


    Splunk's CISO Joel Fulton says "strongDM gives you what you can’t get any other way- the ability to see what happens, replay and analyze incidents."

    Chef's co-founder Adam Jacob says "strongDM takes the friction out of getting staff access to the systems they need."


    We built a technical product for technical buyers who have a high bar and low tolerance for sales spin. Customers love us because:


    The product rocks: strongDM fundamentally changes the relationship between InfoSec, DevOps, and end users. Enforce the controls security needs while making it easier to facilitate access.


    Customers trust us: we built a technical product for technical buyers. We do not use jargon. There is no alternative but to always be technically accurate. We are not afraid to admit product gaps.


    We’re real humans: we built a serious product without taking ourselves too seriously. Each member of the team is deadly good at their job, and yet we crack jokes on the phone with customers.


    WHAT YOU’LL DO


    As it says above :) Product is one of the three fundamental tenets of the strongDM business. It needs to work: seamlessly, effectively, and confidently. It’s written by engineers, for engineers. It’s outrageously difficult to build and yet must be the polar opposite to use.

    Welcome to the Product Design at strongDM! You’ll work with the Technical Account Management, Engineering and Support Teams (+ a Product Manager!) to define problems & goals, map user flows, create prototypes, and launch new features and products. You’ll be designing elegant interactions to manage a complex technical platform for technical users -- no easy feat. :)

    REQUIREMENTS:

    • 3-8 years of experience with end-to-end product design

    • Experience designing for business and developer-focused products

    • Can solve complex problems with the right balance of flexibility, power, and ease of use

    • Are skilled in explaining your work, process, and decisions

    • Able to quickly identify user patterns of behaviors and can leverage them to make a seamless experience

    • Can think in terms of large systems but also zoom into smaller features -- no detail is lost on you but you won’t get stuck in the weeds

    • Fluent with a design tool like Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD, or Invision

    • Competent with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (enough to prototype, more than that is a big plus)

    • Have cross-platform design experience (Web, android, iOS, emails)

    COMPENSATION:

    • Industry-standard base

    • Extremely competitive benefits, including:

    • Medical, dental, and vision insurance

    • 401k, HSA, FSA, short / long-term disability, 3 month parental leave

    • 3 weeks PTO + standard holidays

    • Equity in a fast-growing startup

    No travel required
