Type of Position


Job Description

Location: San Francisco, CA

Position Type: Regular - Full-Time

Position Summary:

Designers are involved in nearly everything Automatic does. From software and hardware to marketing and business development, design plays a central role here, and that's how we like it.

You'll focus on creating polished product experiences for iPhone, Android and the web while shaping product features from concept to completion. You'll be joining a small team of UX and design generalists, each with a range of skills and at least one deep specialty. You'll work closely with a product manager and engineers throughout the entire product development process.

You'll have the space to generate new ideas without worrying about practicality too early, but a strong design process will help you know when it's time to move on to execution. You'll move quickly and methodically together with the team, with plenty of opportunities to pair up and collaborate.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Work with product managers and the design team to design new mobile and web products and features using user-centered design methodologies like structured brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, user testing, etc.

  • Be a strong advocate for our users and prioritize their experience while understanding engineering implications.

  • Contribute to our core product architecture and extend our deeply integrated component system.

  • Lead user testing sessions and synthesize feedback from users about our designs, and using this feedback to inform future iterations.

  • Collaborate with the engineers to make sure designs are implemented as intended. Hear their ideas for how designs might change given implementation constraints and opportunities.

  • Pixel-perfect asset production and delivery to our product engineering teams.

Supervisory Responsibilities:

  • None.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in design, or equivalent, relevent experience.

  • 5+ years of experience designing web and mobile apps in a production environment.

Requirements and General Skills:

  • Awareness of multi-platform design implications (responsiveness, cross-environment compatibility, platform dependent typesetting etc).

  • Passion for mobile (iOS & Android) and web platforms, a deep understanding of what makes them unique, and a basic understanding of how they work under the hood.

  • Eagerness to prototype ideas and iterate quickly while designing towards a product spec.

  • Deep familiarity with component-based design and how it influences product decisions.

  • Strong interaction design skills, design taste, and attention to detail.

  • Great communication skills, open mindedness and the ability to explain design decisions and your process to other designers and stakeholders.

  • Understanding of modern web styling patterns, their strengths and limitations.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • Good public speaking and presentation skills.

  • People management skills are a plus.

  • Must have legal right to work in the U.S.

Technical Skills:

  • MS Office skills (Outlook, Word, Visio, PowerPoint).

  • AgileCraft or similar Agile management tool experience.
