We’ve already built and delivered incredible software, and now we need your help to develop our first product and deliver it to market.

The role

We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our team at Augmenta. You will own the user experience of our first product. You will work closely with product leadership and with our customers to define requirements and an ideal user experience, and will then work with our engineering team to ensure that experience is delivered as planned. This is truly an all encompassing role, with an opportunity to own our UX, UI and branding, and eventually grow into leading a design team. This role reports to the Chief Product Officer.

What you will do (most of your time)

  • Own the user experience for our first product as we grow from beta to a commercial, scalable product.
  • Establish design paradigms for future products and adjacent industries.
  • Plan and execute research initiatives with current and future customers.
  • Collaborate with product and engineering leads to prioritize, plan and build new features, flows or components.
  • Design intuitive flows and experiences that simplify complex requirements into user-friendly interfaces.
  • Own, curate, and enhance the design system to maintain consistency between surfaces.

Supporting functions (some of your time)

  • Support sales and marketing efforts by creating visually appealing graphics for the corporate website, blog posts, or social media to elevate the Augmenta brand.

About you

  • 5+ years of professional product design experience, including leading design efforts and shipping large or complex products/features.
  • Experience working with complex user or business domains such as (but not limited to) engineering, architecture, finance, etc.
  • Proven ability to plan and lead user research and workshops to understand customer sentiment, pain-points and needs.
  • High proficiency in Figma, with the ability to visualize and prototype complex solutions in both low and high fidelity.
  • Familiarity with design systems, including the use or creation of reusable components.
  • Good communication skills, capable of articulating complex design concepts and product requirements to internal and external stakeholders through design briefs, user stories, or technical diagrams.
  • Experience leveraging qualitative and quantitative data to inform design strategy, communicate business value, and measure the success of design initiatives.
  • Experience mapping out complex user journeys across multiple personas, touchpoints and systems.
  • Strong visual design skills with a keen eye for creating beautiful graphics and interfaces.
  • Comfortable writing user-facing content such as labels, tooltips, and other UI copy.
