Octopus Deploy is one of Australia’s fastest-growing software companies (and we’re taking on the world). After bootstrapping for a decade, in 2021, we quietly raised Australia's second-largest ever venture capital raise, accepting a USD 172M minority investment from Insight Partners.

Our Product Designers form part of the Design Team which is distributed across cross-functional teams in R&D. Designers across the company stay connected and supported through design team rituals that encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing. 

This Senior Product Designer role will be embedded in one of the R&D teams and works alongside Product Managers and Engineering Leads to help deliver strategic and tactical work aligned to the team’s mission. As Senior Product Designer, your role will be to solve problems that meet our users’ needs and align with the UX and product strategy.

This is a remote role based in Australia or New Zealand.
Salary range: $120,000–$140,000 plus stock options

You will be a great fit for this role if you have...

    • Multiple years of experience in a Product Design role at another software company, preferably B2B.
    • Previously worked alongside Product Managers and Lead Engineers in an agile environment, driving the end-to-end design process to solve user problems.
    • Been accountable for the quality of UX work delivered within your team.
    • A portfolio that demonstrates experience shipping UX/UI design for software and a firm grasp of UX methodologies and interaction design.
    • Experience providing valuable insights by using various qualitative and quantitative research methods.
    • Experience gathering requirements for complex problems and visualising them in a way that brings clarity.  
    • An understanding of the need for consistency, reducing UX debt and the value of design systems.
    • Proficiency with industry design tools such as Figma and Whimsical/Miro.
    • Excellent communication skills and proven ability to be able to build consensus and influence outcomes.

You will enjoy this role if...

    • You are able to work independently, motivating yourself and your team to do high-quality work.
    • You have a passion for user-centered design and creating great product experiences. 
    • You enjoy collaborating with other people to solve problems, challenging each other to discover the best solution for a problem, using a balance of passion, pragmatism, and empathy.
    • You can continuously self-guide your learning journey through a complex product and its domain.
    • You are a results-oriented person, someone who is focused on iteratively delivering valuable things to your customers, someone who willingly changes direction based on clear and transparent business information, and someone who helps others do the same.

A typical day might include...

    • Working with your team’s Product Manager to conduct user research such as user interviews or usability testing. 
    • Facilitating a cross-functional workshop to uncover assumptions or work towards an outcome. 
    • Pairing with an Engineer, Product Manager, or another designer to solve a UX, usability, or UI problem.
    • Giving feedback and direction to other designers to help guide them to success. 
    • Contributing to our design system or updating components in the component library then communicating those changes to the team.

Why Is This A Great Opportunity?

    • We offer great benefits, including generous laptop and home office allowances, plus stock options!
    • We value transparency and fairness in every aspect of our business. For example, Paul (our CEO) shares monthly updates on company performance, and our pay structures are designed to pass the ‘printer test’.
    • Trust and autonomy. Octonauts are treated like adults, and are trusted to find the best way of working for the task at hand, without managers looking over their shoulder.
    • You’ll be joining a high-growth company with numerous opportunities to learn and advance your career.
    • Remote first: work from wherever you feel most productive.
    •  We are a supportive company where everyone’s contribution is valued.
    • We respect and encourage work/life balance.

Equal Opportunity

    • We’ve built an inclusive workplace culture and understand the true importance of culture-add, versus culture-fit.
    • From day 1, you'll have a buddy helping you get your bearings. You can book in coffee chats with anyone in the company. We encourage everyone to have a voice in all aspects of the product and the business. So much so that we have an open chat policy (all channels are public by default) and everyone is welcome!
    • Also when it comes to inclusivity, we mean it, check out our handbook!
