At Stack Overflow, we are obsessed with serving developers. Whether we’re helping developers get answers to their questions, find a new job, or discover documentation, we build products that make millions of developers’ lives better every day. We are looking for a Senior Product Designer to join the product design team working on developer-facing products. This means leading design on a wide range of projects. In this role you’ll work with a bright team of developers, product managers, designers, marketing, and community growth experts to understand how we can best delight our developer customers.
We’re looking to hire the best person wherever you are in the world. We work remotely so you can work from home and interact with the team over Google Hangouts and chat, usually during US or European working hours. We have offices in New York, London and Denver, so if you’re in (or want to relocate to) one of those cities you can, and our offices are awesome.
Skills & Requirements
What you’ll do:
- Collaborate on a product team to turn strategy into engaging, usable new products and features
- Research user needs through interviews and usability testing
- Build testable prototypes, validate ideas, and iterate based on feedback
- Work with marketing and our community team to plan and clearly communicate the launch of new features and products
- Help the product design team build, curate, and share the product’s design language
We expect to see:
- A portfolio showcasing strong UX design, visual design, understanding of branding and design systems, and HTML/CSS skills
- Strong communication and collaboration skills
- Experience shipping and iterating projects on a product team
About Stack Overflow
Our goal is to make the Internet a better place to get expert answers to your questions. We’ve done a lot of that with Stack Overflow, but we think there’s still more to do.
We believe in hiring smart people and getting out of their way. We have an office in New York with some of the best amenities of any New York startup, and we have people who work remotely all over the world. We keep meetings and ceremony to an absolute minimum, and will never poke you with a sharp stick.
