Principal Product Designer (SF)

San Francisco, CA

Sysdig is looking for an experienced Principal Product Designer to join our design team in San Francisco. 

Sysdig is the cloud-native intelligence company, and we’re at the forefront of the container and microservices adoption in the enterprise. We’re the people who are making reliable, secure containers a reality for enterprises everywhere.

The ideal designer has experience building products at scale — research, feedback, and user interaction data should be critical parts of your toolkit. You’re comfortable in complex problem spaces and may have a history of working in product areas like system infrastructure monitoring, compliance and security, and software continuous integration and delivery pipelines. You are curious about AI-enabled user interfaces and have utilized data visualizations as a layer in your user interfaces.

Designers at Sysdig play a critical role at every step of the product development process, from high-level ideas to crafting the final user experience for a feature. We look for designers who think deeply, communicate clearly, and thrive collaborating across roles and expertise.  

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Design experiences that make it intuitive for users to interact with complex systems and large data-sets
  • Partner with product managers, to solicit user input, and use it to shape product development efforts
  • Provide design support throughout the product development, from initial concept to launch and post-release
  • Contribute to evolving our design system and UX strategy
  • Mentor less experienced designers on the team and help them grow
  • Lead the design for your primary projects hands-on, while managing and prioritizing the work for collaborating designers
  • Help to grow the design team

 

What You Should Bring:

  • 5+ years experience as a member of a product design team in a lead role 
  • Experience designing on multiple platforms (Desktop, Mobile, etc.)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Highly proficient with design and interactive prototyping tools (Sketch, Framer, etc.)
  • Excellence in design craft
  • Self-motivated team player able to work with a highly collaborative, cross-functional team
  • Can initiate and drive multiple projects concurrently
  • Excited about working in a fast-paced, dynamic startup environment

To apply, be certain you include a link to your online portfolio, along with your resume. A cover letter that can describe to us why this job, product, and/or company is right for you is a huge plus.
