Senior Product Designer


Full TimeproductRemotePosted 10 months ago


Kuali is looking for a Senior Product Designer with at least four years of experience working in software product development. We hire humble, optimistic problem-solvers who need no direction and no permission to solve customer problems.

You’ll like working at Kuali if:

  • You enjoy building and can deliver beautiful user experiences, but can also balance priorities and sometimes compromise on pixel perfection to deliver value sooner.
  • You’re versatile. You know when to dream big and when to act small. You’re equally comfortable in both greenfield and refactoring projects.
  • You’re a collaborator. You build great relationships with other designers, engineers, and customers.
  • You’re inspired to achieve results, and your enthusiasm is contagious.
  • You’re passionate about your role in helping clients and other designers achieve their missions, and you advocate for them fiercely.
  • You’re curious and continuously seek knowledge and share your discoveries with others.
  • You know how to influence and serve.
  • You understand the complexity of large enterprise applications.
  • You’ve used agile methodologies.

This position is on our Student, Curriculum & Catalog Management product team.

About Kuali

Why join us? Our work matters — we’re helping our customers improve the quality of higher education by decreasing administrative costs. We operate in a competitive space where users tolerate outdated, inefficient, legacy ERPs and are eager to be delighted. We’re generating revenue and growing quickly with nearly 170 customers and 100 employees. You’ll have a significant impact on what we do and how we do it. Plus, you’ll get to work with some truly amazing people at a fast-growing, design-centric EdTech startup.

If you’re looking to make your fortune off a quick flip with no business model, you’d be happier someplace else.


  • Lead design for a new module for our higher education product suite and maintain a foundational software product
  • Build strong relationships with customers to develop a deep understanding of their needs, hopes, problems, and frustrations
  • Advocate passionately for customer priorities during product development
  • Conduct user research with the product team
  • Create wireframes, models, and prototypes to flesh out and test concepts with customers
  • Support engineering development of designs and bugs
  • Implement accessible design practices
  • Create elegant and beautiful responsive web UIs
  • Design with Kuali’s design system
  • Consider every touchpoint and find ways to make their experience fluid and efficient; this can include emails, print brochures, customer support UX, and other marketing materials


Please be prepared to provide examples of your work. Your portfolio doesn’t have to be the slickest javascript website ever, but we need to see 2-3 examples of your work and some commentary on your process and rationale. An email or even a slide deck is more than sufficient.Application Requirements
