Product Designer

We believe customer obsession builds the best products, so our mission is to ‘enable product teams to make better decisions through the power of customer understanding’. We think what we’re building is an exciting, brand new category of software. Our product-led growth strategy has seen us expand to thousands of customers like Figma, VMware, Shopify, BCG, GitLab, Porsche, Canva, and more.

We’re all about sweating the details on delightful experiences, tackling ambitious technical 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 our products. 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

Jodie Clothier
Product Designer

What you’ll do

  • Contribute to our product design across the entire end-to-end design process. Design new features, improve existing features and contribute to our overall product vision and design direction utilising skills across research, user experience, interaction and visual design.

  • Collaborate with the product team. Work closely with the entire product team, including product managers, engineers and other designers to understand our customers, product requirements and ship features.

  • Help us establish our design system. You'll work with other designers on the team to create design patterns, user interface components, and iconography to be shared across different parts of the user experience.

  • Contribute to our research efforts. Work with our researcher and contribute to research projects including generative studies to understand our customers, their pain points and requirements, as well as evaluative studies to test new designs and concepts.

Your background

  • Strong design experience. Experience working as a professional UX / UI / Product / Interaction Designer working with sophisticated, modern cloud software.

  • Breadth of skills across the design process. Including journey mapping, wire-framing, interaction and visual design, prototyping, and research.

  • 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!

Be able to convey your opinions and feelings with other teammates, founders, and customers. Honest, thoughtful, and transparent communication is critical to our success as a business.

  • 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.

  • Pragmatism. You'll need to be comfortable with ambiguity, be resourceful to solve problems, and be able to adjust to shifting deadlines and project goals.
