Sr. Product Designer at Valimail
San Francisco, CA, US

Imagine working on a global communication network that’s used by 3.7 billion people and every day more than a quarter trillion messages cross this network. There’s just one problem: even in today’s modern world, phishing attacks run rampant, costing companies billions of dollars each year. Whether it’s from wire fraud, W-2 thefts, or targeted attacks to steal data, companies have been powerless to protect themselves.

Valimail offers a comprehensive solution for stopping fake email, protecting brands, and helping ensure compliance. We’ve already stopped billions of malicious emails from being delivered, won over a dozen prestigious cybersecurity awards, and are lucky enough to have some of the world's biggest companies as customers, including Fannie Mae, Uber, WeWork, Yelp, and the U.S. Agency for International Development.  

We are looking for a multidisciplinary Senior Product Designer who is passionate about design, a resilient problem solver, and a systems thinker who can iterate and execute end-to-end design solutions. You will be accountable for guiding users through UI experiences that clearly communicate data sets and allow them to accomplish their tasks.

What you’ll be doing:

• Taking a very technical, data heavy product and creating simple, intuitive interfaces

• Creating low and high fidelity prototypes, wireframes, and/or static mockups that illustrate your proposed solutions to potential end users and internal stakeholders

• Collaborating with Product Management and Engineering to develop complete and thorough designs all the way to creating build-ready assets

• Establishing design workflows and processes to optimize our product development

• Contributing to our design system

• Presenting your work to internal stakeholders

• Helping conduct user testing and user research

Relevant experience:

• 6+ years design experience

• Strong digital product design portfolio with an understanding of human-centered design methodologies

• A focus on strong interaction design skills along with a secondary understanding of visual design concepts such as grid systems, typography, hierarchy, etc.

• A passion for design, an eye for detail, and opinions about what is considered “good” vs. “great” design. A bonus if you have experience visualizing complex data sets.

• Strong written and verbal communication skills in order to articulate your point of view and your understanding of your proposed solutions

• You work well in a participatory, team-based environment. You support and inspire your team through collaboration as well as direction, vision, and planning of deliverables

• You are flexible and able to pivot quickly in order to iterate quickly

• Experience with enterprise SaaS products preferred

• Familiarity with any of the following design tools: Sketch, Figma, Adobe CS, HTML/CSS/JS, Principle, Zeplin, Framer, and/or InVision

• Degree in HCI, Interaction Design, Communication Design, Graphic Design or similar field

Application requirements: Please submit a resume, cover letter (yes, we read cover letters), and a portfolio .pdf or link.
