What's the opportunity? 🤔

We’re looking for a Product Designer to join our Design Systems team in Dublin. You'll be collaborating with our cross-functional teams (Product Designers, Product Engineers, Product Managers) to define our visual and interaction design language and lead the evolution of our design system by designing reusable UI components that accelerate workflows for our designers and engineers.

Intercom is a design-driven company. Two of our founders (our CEO and CSO) were designers. Our VP of Product was a designer. Most of our product managers were designers. Members of our design team have already joined us from teams at Facebook, Google, GitHub, Yandex, and a range of respected agencies and startups. With a strong design culture, many smart people to learn from and complete buy-in from the very beginning, this is a place where you will have the opportunity to do the very best work of your career.

What will I be doing? 🚀

You'll work with our Design Systems team to:

  • Lead an effort to up-level visual & interaction design quality of our web and mobile apps. This includes working with our Brand and Product Designers to set direction and Engineers to implement changes
  • Design a modern and thoughtful UI component library. Go beyond designing general UI components and design a full stack design system
  • Give thoughtful and actionable design feedback to our Product Designers
  • Work closely with Engineers to implement your designs at a high degree of quality
  • Create tools that accelerate workflows for Designers and Engineers (e.g. Sketch plugins, templates)
  • This position is based with our core product and engineering team in Dublin, Ireland. We're more than happy to generously relocate the right candidate, including significant others, kids, pets, etc! Most of our designers have come from outside of Ireland. People from San Francisco, London, Paris, Moscow, and many other places have relocated to Dublin and joined us on our hyper growth journey.

What skills do I need? 📖

  • Highly refined visual, interaction and motion design skills and the ability to communicate rationale behind decisions
  • Strong understanding of classic interaction design principles and how to use them
  • Experience designing and shipping digital products and systems, not just websites
  • Ability to generate attractive ideas in a wide range of visual styles
  • The ability to create high-fidelity interaction prototypes
  • Experience designing experiences that people can access on any type of device, desktop, tablet, phone
  • Good eye for detail. You value quality and polish in the work that you and your team produce
  • You are an excellent self starter who's hungry for learning
  • You thrive in a fast paced, constantly changing environment

Bonus skills & attributes 🙌

  • Experience working with and creating pattern libraries, and passion about design systems and models such as atomic design
  • Experience with HTML/CSS/JavaScript, making changes without needing help from engineering
  • You enjoy writing and speaking about design

How to apply

Use the form below and make sure to include a link or a PDF file of your portfolio with examples of designs that you’re most proud of. Ideally you should include a brief explanation of your design decisions for the examples provided: what’s the problem you were trying to solve and how did you approach it?
