Senior Product Designer

As a Senior Product Designer, you will craft successful, meaningful products that help thousands of developers deliver better applications to their users, faster!

Senior product designers at CircleCI have a strong problem-solving process and an ability to explain that process. We are curious, ask questions, dig deep into problems, and are excited to learn new things. We are strong visual problem solvers who understand the key elements of visual design including visual hierarchy, layout, typography, color, etc and also have the ability to communicate structure, relationships and flow through visual assets. We value curiosity and seek every opportunity to engage with customers and use design to take on real user problems.

Our designers are empathetic and collaborative and are able to work well with people from different backgrounds. We advocate for design decisions through data, research, and strong critical thinking, but also engage in participatory discussions, take feedback, and use that feedback to produce the best possible designs for our customers.

Senior product designers build positive relationships and help teammates overcome obstacles, contributing to the healthy functioning of the broader organization. Does this describe your own ambitions and values? Check out more details about the role below!
