We’re looking for people who are driven by collaborative and creative environments to build simple, innovative, and beautifully designed products that customers love to use. As a designer in our Flow Area, you’ll be responsible for reimagining how work gets done by empowering individuals to confidently manage their priorities and time, find flow, and take on their biggest challenges at work.

You’ll work alongside a cross-functional team and be instrumental in leading how these two program teams operate and how the culture is formed. This is an excellent opportunity for a designer who enjoys big, complicated challenges to work at multiple altitudes – from defining a new category for “flow” in the workplace to designing innovative micro-interactions.
