We are currently seeking a Product Design Manager to join our Product Design team. This is a remote position. This role can be performed from one of our Canadian offices, remotely across Canada, or a combination of both. Some exceptions may apply.
What your team does:
Design plays an integral role at Clio, making up one of the three pillars of our Product Organization alongside Product Management and Engineering. Product designers directly engage in researching the behaviours and needs of our users. They act as champions of user experience in our Product organization as we work to transform the way lawyers and their staff provide services to their clients. If you’re focused on shipping value to customers with an opportunity to revolutionize an industry, you’ve found your next team.
As a Product Design Manager, you lead a team of designers across multiple product areas. You support your team members to be their best selves at Clio: developing their skills, achieving their career goals, and improving the processes and systems used by the entire Clio design community. You evolve and shape the culture of our design team at Clio.
You also are a member of Clio’s product leadership and ensure we ship great experiences for our users. You work in close collaboration with your product management and engineering counterparts and advocate for the voice and experience of Clio’s users. You coach and guide the leads on your team to define the design strategy for your product areas and connect that strategy to Clio’s overall objectives. This includes collaborating and ensuring a high quality for design briefs, vision, and success metrics produced by your team. You identify shared and connected experiences between different product areas and ensure their consistency, quality, and excellence.
You support the senior product leadership at Clio to influence our overall product direction as a key advocate of Clio’s users. You identify opportunities to improve their overall experience with Clio across any touchpoint and you collaborate with other departments on executing on these opportunities.
A day in the life might look like:
- Develop the career, skills, and performance of a team of designers
- Advocate for user experience in your leadership triad
- Coach and guide your area’s product teams to work better together and build better product
- Support defining the design strategy and vision for how users should experience Clio in 3-5 years
- Build a team and systems that allow you to attract and hire the best design talent
- Support and uphold the bar of the quality of design at Clio
- Ensure consistency, quality, and excellence across product areas
- Evangelize the importance of user experience and design at Clio
You may be fit for this role if you:
- Have 2+ years experience managing designers
- Have 5+ years experience building digital products
- Worked on a digital product beyond version 1
Serious bonus points if you:
- Have experience building SaaS products
- Have experience building for SMB or Consumers
Where your team works:
Clio is currently transitioning to a workplace that is distributed by design. This means that Clio offers employees more choice: the opportunity to work from one of our hub offices across Canada, remotely, or a combination of both. We have invested in best-in-class tools, technology and culture to ensure our team members are able to do their best work whether they prefer to work from an office or remotely.
At Clio, we’re more than just a tech company. We’re transforming the practice of law in a permanent and meaningful way that’s bettering the lives of legal professionals while increasing access to justice for all.
We are high achievers who are setting new standards for what it means to be a tech company. In the past three years, we’ve launched a new interface and experience of our software, acquired our first company, launched a second product, secured the largest Series D in Canadian history at the time, and launched a $1 million dollar relief fund to help legal professionals navigate the challenges of COVID-19 (just to name a few).
We are dedicated to creating diverse teams and inclusive workplaces. We know that different perspectives, skills, backgrounds, and experiences result in higher-performing teams and innovation. We believe you do your best work when you can show up as your authentic self—and that’s a key part of our culture.
At Clio, you have the chance to not only do the best work of your career, but work that is putting Canada on the global stage. We know our technology changes lives and we’re committed to making an impact. If that’s something that speaks to you—you belong here, too. Join us.
