Product Designer

10x Genomics is seeking our third Product Designer to design software and web experiences that help scientists make important discoveries, faster. You’ll get the opportunity to design an entirely new SaaS product, build data visualizations and tools, and work with a multidisciplinary group of engineers, biologists, roboticists, and more. Existing science knowledge is not required to apply, but you should have interest in learning about the great unknowns of biology. Join us in making real impact in cancer research, genomics, and people’s lives.

How is this different from other design jobs?

  1. You get real ownership of the product direction in a culture that respects and supports design.
  2. You get to work with really smart people (who also happen to be really nice).
  3. Your work will directly affect the speed of scientific research across the world and our understanding of biology. Your work will matter (not just get A/B tested away!).

 Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for smart designers with at least 2 years of experience (we level you after your interview). This is a good job for someone who is excited by interesting design challenges, who loves collaborating and learning from others, and who wants to exercise their design thinking beyond simply applying existing UI patterns. This isn’t a good job for someone who only wants to make something visually beautiful, or someone who adheres too heavily to process.

If you want to use your design skills to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives, apply and let’s talk!

Bonus Skills

Anything that makes you a more of a generalist -- coding, data visualization, data analysis, business strategy, deep knowledge of other fields.


Additional info

For building software, we use modern web technologies like React and D3.js. For design and building our design system, we use Figma (it’s easy to switch from Sketch). Our HQ is in Pleasanton (if you don’t know where that is -- it’s in the East Bay, near the West Dublin/Pleasanton BART station. As you might expect from the name, it’s very pleasant -- sunny and safe, with green hills). We also have an office in SF, near the Embarcadero BART station. This position can be based in the SF office (where several engineers are based), but you’ll be expected to come to Pleasanton at least once a week.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
