About the Role
We are looking for an experienced design leader who has shipped incredible products, but has also built and led design teams. This is a unique opportunity to shape our enterprise and consumer products and help create innovative experiences. In this role, you will apply your passion for brand, craft, and design fidelity to guide research and design processes. Although we prefer someone who has worked on both consumer and enterprise products, we care more about the experiences you've created at scale.

Our engineering and product teams are exceptional, and design is already integral to how we approach development. The ideal candidate is a collaborative design team leader, manager, systems-level design thinker, with strong instincts and outstanding intuition - who will provide leadership and direction for a team of designers. This role is the perfect opportunity for someone who wants to join the ground floor of a rapidly growing consumer and enterprise company.
