About Kintent

Kintent (https://www.kintent.com) is on a mission to make it effortless to earn trust in every business relationship. We believe that if your customers trust you, they will do more with you. Core to that mission is our belief that compliance doesn’t have to be a grind, and we’re genuinely excited to bring a sense of joy into a traditionally drab space.

Our first trust use case is focused on data security and privacy compliance. Kintent’s Trust Management Platform democratizes every company’s ability to quickly and cost-effectively adopt formal security and privacy programs, measure the accuracy of the program against compliance standards, and confidently share their program with customers by using AI to answer security questionnaires.

With Kintent, compliance becomes a habit, is simple to understand and implement, and is continuously testable so that your customers can see that you are adhering to all your compliance obligations.

About the Role

You will lead the UX and UI design activities for numerous client-facing features for Kintent’s products, strong focus on UI design. This is a senior-leaning position and will involve owning features across products or a dedicated product area, based on the needs of the UX team. You will be supported by experienced practitioners who will help you understand and deliver the experiences assigned to you. You will have the opportunity to guide junior designers, but the role does not include managing a team.

Your work will span the end-to-end design process from discovery to high-fidelity delivery on features customers will use, as well as creating concepts and prototypes based on user research and data to evolve exciting new features for our products.

  • BE ORGANIZED: You will be accountable for making sure that tasks assigned to you are tracked in the appropriate tool, providing updates about your work in a timely and dependable way, communicating with the team to make sure everyone who needs to work with you is enabled to do so efficiently and to maintain your files and deliverables in a meticulous and organized manner
