User Interface Designer

Sydney, AustraliaFull time

We’re expanding our legendary team of creative designers at Dovetail. We’re known among our customers for making enterprise software with a great user experience that's also easy on the eye. We’re looking for someone with great attention to detail who can create delightful experiences that reflect our brand in-product, as well as help with our marketing sites.

You’ll work closely with other designers on the team, product management, and engineering to design new features and improve existing features, as we deliver our exciting 2021 product strategy. You’ll also work closely with our marketing team to create a cohesive visual style and customer journey from our marketing sites all the way to product.

Your responsibilities

  • Work on our product design. Work with the product team (other designers, engineers, product managers, and researchers) across the entire design process to deliver new features and improve existing features. You’ll collaborate closely with the team to understand customer pain points and requirements and design elegant solutions for customers.

  • Help us evolve our visual design. Working with our marketing and product teams, you’ll consider our brand to develop a cohesive visual experience for our customers, covering interface design, iconography, typography, imagery, graphic design, and more.

  • Contribute to 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 customer experience.

  • Design our marketing sites. Take ownership of the design for our marketing website, our blog, and our help center. Collaborate with our superstar graphic designer on illustration for the sites and evolve our visual style and brand.

Your background

  • Strong visual design skills. You’ll have strong user interface and visual design skills to complement our existing team. Ideally, you have a couple of years of experience working in software, with a strong portfolio that reflects your creativity.

  • 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. Skillful, concise communication so you can easily communicate visual concepts and rationalize your decisions. 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.

  • Nice to haves. Ideally, you will have worked on a cloud software product and have experience working in a cross-functional team.


  • Competitive base salary plus equity. Even though we’re a small startup, we pay salaries that can hold their own against the big Sydney tech companies.

  • KitKat days. We understand the importance of mental health and wellbeing, these are extra paid days holiday for the whole company where everyone can take a break.

  • Floating public holiday. You can choose to work public holidays and use that day another time in the year.

  • Flexible working hours and location – we value work-life balance, especially right now. While we’re mostly back in the office, you’re free to work where you want, when you want.

  • Personal learning and development budget. We’re a big fan of personal development, and prefer to home-grow leaders rather than filling leadership / management externally.

  • A brand new architecturally designed office in Surry Hills with free snacks, beer on tap and drinks, three different coffee machines, social areas, and a rooftop!

  • TGIF events are a monthly company wide activity on a Friday for the whole team.

  • Salary sacrifice. We have a salary sacrifice policy for work related items.

  • Sit-stand desks, 4k 27” monitor, ergonomic chairs, quiet spaces, and collaboration spaces, to suit all kinds of working styles.

  • Pet friendly office! We love dogs and often have dogs in the office.

  • Regular lunch and learn events, opportunities for presenting at webinars and conferences, and networking through our investor community.

  • Annual company retreats.
