Come strengthen the chemistry of our team and help us empower software companies to provide powerful self-serve analytics & in-app comms tools to their PMs, Design Managers, and other product roles. We're seeking a Lead Product Designer who is passionate about user interface design, mentoring designers, and cares deeply about creating delightful end-to-end experiences for our customers.

Join us to build a new platform to transform the future of work, from the ground up. We are looking for Lead/Principal designers to be one of the founding members of the Digital Adoption Solutions team at Pendo, which will be building a new platform to shape how companies onboard, support, and engage their employees in the digital workplace. 

As a Lead Product Designer you will be responsible for driving the design vision for your product areas and will regularly present to executive stakeholders. You are a team player and empower others to do their best work. You are comfortable in all aspects of the design process: engaging with customers and users, concepting early-stage ideas, envisioning aspirational "north star" design directives, prototyping high-res workflows, collaborating closely with product, engineering, and leadership peers, and more. You tend to have a superpower or niche skill set that others seek out like prototyping, user research, data viz or design systems.

  • Craft and own the design vision for your product area 
  • Drive strong product outcomes, especially innovative ones, in close partnership with PM/Eng leaders
  • Drive clarity from ambiguity
  • Align product team tightly with executive leadership
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills (cross-functional, cross-org)
  • Lead strategic design initiatives and partner with UX Research on discovery efforts


  • High bar for all aspects of product design: prototyping, interaction design, visual design, user research
  • Craft innovative end-to-end user experiences grounded in customer insights, data, business goals—across web and mobile
  • Advocate for Design internally and externally
  • Experience working design systems
  • Experience working with multi-office and/or distributed teams
  • Data visualization interest and/or experience
  • Desire to strengthen the chemistry, diversity, and inclusiveness of our team

Required Toolset

  • Figma for Design and Prototyping
  • Experience with Pendo is a plus
