Product Designer (Markup)

Dovetail's mission is to improve the quality of every thing. We empower 85,000+ people, from agencies to universities to Fortune 100 companies, to make sense of their customer research in one collaborative and powerful research platform.

We’re looking for a talented Product Designer to join our Markup product team. We’re all about sweating the details on delightful experiences, tackling ambitious design challenges, and delivering customer value. As a designer at Dovetail, you'll work closely with other designers and researchers on the team, product management and engineering to help drive our design direction and shape the future of Markup.

We're a small but rapidly growing team. We're looking for someone who can wear multiple hats across the design process, and with great attention to detail to create experiences that reflect our incredibly high quality bar.

Who you’ll work closely with

Lucy Denton

What you’ll do

  • Contribute to the design direction of Markup. Design new features, improve existing features, and contribute to our overall product vision and design direction utilising skills across user experience, visual design, and research.

  • Collaborate with the product team. We’re a highly collaborative team. You’ll work closely with the entire product team, including product managers, engineers and other designers to understand our customers, product requirements and ship features.

  • Contribute to our design system. You'll work with other designers and engineers on the team to create design patterns and components to be shared across different parts of the user experience.

Your background

  • Strong design experience. Experience as a professional product designer, working with sophisticated, modern cloud software. For this role we’re looking for someone with

    strong systems thinking skills, as well as strong UI and design systems skills.

  • Breadth of skills across the design process. Including experience with carrying out product discovery, confident in visualising and prototyping design concepts to quickly communicate and iterate on ideas with stakeholders, and delivering detailed solutions.

  • Highly collaborative working style. Experience working closely with adjacent roles, such as product managers and engineers, to plan, prioritise, and deliver projects.

  • Attention to detail. You have a high quality bar and will be constantly looking at enhancing the experience for customers. We aren't opposed to pushing pixels and sweating the details – we're a detailed-oriented company that values quality!

  • Excellent communication. Ability to convey opinions, thoughts, and feelings with other teammates, founders, and customers. Honest, thoughtful, and transparent communication is critical.

  • Pragmatism. Comfortable with ambiguity, and shifting deadlines. Resourcefully solve problems, and able to make pragmatic trade-offs while holding a bigger, strategic goal in mind.

  • A great attitude. The right attitude towards a sense of urgency, risk, and uncertainty about the future that comes with working at an early-stage startup. This is an opportunity to be involved in an exciting journey from the very start.

At Dovetail, we’re passionate about building and fostering an environment where every team member feels supported and valued.
