    • Work closely with front-end and back-end developers to ensure seamless integration of design concepts.
    • Collaborate on the implementation of design elements, providing guidance and support throughout the development process.
    • Conduct usability testing to gather feedback on design prototypes and iterate on designs based on user input.
    • Analyze user data and behavior to make informed design decisions and improvements.
    • Establish and maintain a consistent design language and style guide for our SaaS products.

What You Have Done:

    • Minimum of 5 years of work experience in product design, preferably in SaaS solutions.
    • Experience in designing interfaces for observability platforms and/or features.
    • Strong portfolio showcasing your design work, with an emphasis on user-centered design principles.
    • Strong understanding of user-centered design principles and best practices.

    • Experience with Tailwind CSS and the integration into design systems.
    • Experience working in a fast-paced, high-growth environment with varying deadlines and milestones.

What Will Make You Stand Out:

    • Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, Interaction Design, or related field.
    • Experienced with database metrics, tools and reporting.
    • Experience in designing and prototyping user interfaces within technical constraints while leveraging and maximizing technical features.
    • Experience with all stages of product development - concept, wireframes, design iterations, production and quality assurance.
    • UX research experience conducting contextual research, design synthesis, concept testing, usability testing, and heuristic evaluation.
    • Experience in front end development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React).

Personal Attributes:

    • Global mindset.
    • Pride and ownership of meeting expectations.
    • Adaptable, resourceful, and able to work within ambiguity.
