Design is a major competitive advantage and strength of Mixpanels. It ranges from our brand to product design to the internal schwag our employees wear. We’re looking for a leader who wants to grow our 8 person design team and scale it while building a culture that’s empowering, collaborative, and pushes the boundaries of great design for our customers -- particularly in an industry that historically has shown apathy.

Mixpanel does product analytics -- we help thousands of companies understand their users using data and analytics. We help them understand how people use their products so they can make them better. If you've wondered how a design impacts products directly, we can prove that.


  • You have a strong and opinionated visual design style.
  • You’ll partner closely with engineering, product, and our customer facing teams to improve the way users engage with our product. You’ll provide the thought leadership to inspire and develop the right product strategy.
  • You’ll ensure teams are leading with a user-centred approach, remembering the holistic strategy, and ensuring quality in their delivery.
  • You’ll build bridges. You’ll communicate what your organization is capable of and actively make connections throughout the company to inspire others teams to better leverage data/insight to further the user experience.
  • You will think about the long-term and think about our design strategy holistically - not just project by project.
  • You will inspire, empower, and motivate your team to pursue their best work possible. Sometimes that's due to themselves but most often with others through a collaborative effort that includes people outside of the design team.
  • You will partner with the CEO to uphold a high standard for design across our company ranging from brand, products, schwag, marketing pages, etc.


  • You have been an excellent designer in the past doing product design/brand for more than 5 years.
  • You have managed a team of more than 15 designers for more than 3 years and have developed excellent management skills.
  • You’ve worked in a software company that has a strength in product, design, and engineering for over 5 years. You already know how to work with these teams cross-functionally.
  • You have experienced leadership opportunities such that you’ve honed your public speaking skills for our internal employees, you’ve partnered with other executives before, and you know how to problem solve things across an organization self-sufficiently.
  • You have worked with upper management before and understand the importance of how meeting your commitments, communicating, and running a tight organized team are to allowing our company to move quickly and smoothly.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
