Lead Designer

About the position
Pathlight’s mission is to help managers lead their teams to success every day. There are three key elements to this: 1. Monitoring the outputs of thousands of employees in real-time; 2. Detecting when groups or individuals are drifting off-course; 3. Communicating a new set of unique “directions” to get each party back on the path to success. We call it “Management Automation.”

As you can imagine, a productivity tool that analyzes data and displays insights for multiple types of users across the org chart requires thoughtful design. We’re looking to hire a Lead Designer who is excited about having their fingerprints all over our product. This role is 100% focused on creating value for our customers through thoughtful UX and UI design. We're most interested in candidates who have owned design for all or parts of a daily-use application, collaborated with folks across a variety of functions, and who will be driven by the opportunity to have serious responsibility and significant impact.

What you’ll do
  • Lead all design efforts across the company. While product is the emphasis, your skills will be needed occasionally in marketing, communications, and other departments.
  • Prioritize and transform user feedback into fully designed features (from initial story to pixels)
  • Collaborate with engineering to ship new, impactful functionality and with customer-facing teams to ensure the customer’s voice is heard throughout the development process

What you’ll bring
  • Experience leading design at a software startup
  • A strong portfolio of work that shows your ability to turn complex concepts into a powerfully simple and intuitive UX
  • Proven track record of leading an idea through development to a successful launch
  • Commitment to building great end-user experiences that deliver real value without complexity
  • Bonus: Graphic illustration experience

What you'll get
  • Ownership to drive product design strategy forward
  • The opportunity to collaborate with team members across the company
  • A culture that promotes discussion, different viewpoints, and discovery
  • A rigorous and supportive environment that encourages you to bring your ideas forward, use data to support decision-making, and take calculated risk
  • 401k and medical, dental, and vision benefits

Note: We are unfortunately unable to sponsor any visas (including H-1B visas) at this time.
