About the role

As a Product Designer on Applied’s design team, it will be your role to understand and solve the deeply complex workflows of our users—software engineers who develop autonomous vehicles. These engineers rely on our tools every day to test and improve the safety of their vehicles, and we are in constant contact with them to ensure our UX solutions are making an impact. We ship new software versions every 5 weeks, which means our design process is built around speed. Designers at Applied are highly collaborative while also being individually responsible for business critical objectives.

At Applied, you will:

  • Lead the end-to-end design process for multiple products (from concept through implementation)
  • Work quickly to ship new features in 5 week release cycles
  • Communicate directly with our users (through Slack, weekly office hours, and in-person meetings) to understand their pain points, autonomy development workflows, and feedback about our tools from their daily usage
  • Collaborate closely with PM and Eng to create and validate UX solutions for highly technical and complex engineering challenges 
  • Author PRDs and usability test reports each release to inform the roadmap of the products you're responsible for
  • Expand and evolve our "Dragonfruit" design system

We're looking for someone who has:

  • 3+ years of relevant product design experience
  • Shipped software in fast-paced, technical environments
  • Strong written communication skills

Nice to have:

  • Experience in the autonomous vehicle industry
  • Experience creating user research studies and strategy

The salary range for this position is $65,000 USD to $400,000 USD annually. This salary range is an estimate, and the actual salary may vary based on the Company's compensation practices.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
