About the Design Team
project44 has a multidisciplinary design team that acts as a silver thread running throughout the business and product. From brand, to product, to user research, and design systems, we use design to differentiate and position ourselves as the market leader. We start every project with customer research, and ensure that we're proud of everything we ship. Our team plays a vital role that ensures we focus on the right problems, craft creative solutions, and deliver gorgeous experiences to our customers.
The Product Design team advocates for our customers and works alongside Product, Engineering, and Growth to deliver the best solutions and experiences. You will report to the Director of Design Systems and work alongside other Product Designers and UX Engineers, as well as colleagues from Product, Engineering, and Brand teams.
We are looking for a Senior Product Designer to join the Design Systems team. This team is constantly seeking ways to reach our customers more effectively and efficiently while building an enduring brand. You’ll be involved in developing system-level design elements that contribute to a unified user experience across our external products. You possess a strong foundation in product design, systems thinking, and interaction patterns for responsive web.
The design system is a new area of focus within our growing Product Design team, so you’ll take charge of the way it all comes together—from helping to build out the team and influencing the project roadmap to driving execution and implementation. This is an ideal role for strong collaborators: You’ll work with a team of dedicated ux engineers, other product designers, brand designers, and cross-functional partners to push the user experience forward while adhering to the highest standards. We’d love to see you apply if you have a background in owning product experiences end-to-end and growing culture at your design team.
