Senior UX Designer (Remote – San Francisco)

San Francisco, CA

Sysdig is the secure DevOps company, and we’re at the forefront of the container, Kubernetes, and cloud revolution. We are passionate, technical problem-solvers, continually innovating and delivering powerful solutions to confidently run cloud-native applications. Our consistent contributions to open source software projects reflect our commitment to the open cloud movement.

We value diversity and open dialog to spur ideas, working closely together to achieve our ambitious goals. And we're a great place to work too — we were awarded the 2021 Bay Area Best Places to Work Award from San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal and Inc. We are looking for team members who share our commitment to customers and are willing to dig deeper, understand problems and deliver innovative solutions. Does this sound like the right place for you?

If you are a product designer with a passion for building products at scale, we would like to connect. Ideally, you are comfortable in complex problem spaces, advocate for users in all your design decisions, and have experience utilizing data visualizations in your user interfaces.

Your Opportunity: 

Sysdig is looking for an experienced Enterprise Software UX Designer to join our design team in San Francisco. 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 to create a better user experience.

Key Responsibilities:

  • 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

Required Qualifications:

  • 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 (e.g. Figma, Sketch, 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
  • Experience conducting customer research and user testing to improve designs
  • Bonus: experience working with the Goal Directed Design Methodology and working in a startup atmosphere

It wouldn’t be a great fit if…

  • You’ve only worked in mobile app design. We’re a web-based SaaS solution and don’t have a mobile presence
  • You don’t have a background interacting with complex technology. It’s OK not to know about the containers / kubernetes / cloud native space (everything is teachable!), but if you don’t have some experience designing on top of data sets, this might not be the best fit for you
