More about our Design Team

We're on a mission to bring better design to the business world, and while we're at it we'd like to make our mark with stunning data viz, personable interfaces, and a commitment to empathizing with our users. If you believe that great design belongs everywhere and have the mettle to make it happen, let's talk.

What we're looking for

We're looking for a Senior Product Designer who is curious about customers and passionate about data-driven design. You'll be responsible for working with Product and Engineering to solve customer problems with elegant interaction, beautiful, intuitive UI, and a passion for making data more accessible to all. We are looking for someone with an appetite for leading projects through the full development cycle, conducting small-scale usability testing, and contributing to a central design system. As a senior member of the design organization, you'll be a key strategic player both within your product team and a contributor to the design craft and culture at SurveyMonkey.

You will

  • Define and clearly articulate design criteria, and tell a clear thoughtful experience story through your design solutions
  • Tailor your design process to the situation, anticipate obstacles to chart a course forward
  • Cleanly and quickly produce quality design concepts based on qualitative and quantitative feedback. Conducting user research is highly desirable.

You have

  • Experience guiding and leading groups of designers or cross-functional teams, including Product Management, Engineering, Data Analysts, Marketing, User Research, Content Strategy and Localization
  • Experience collaborating with other designers to create a cohesive cross-product experience, both using and contributing to a centralized design system.
  • Experience with Sketch, Invision, Creative Suite, and knowledgeable about HTML, CSS. You can adopt new tools, designs and technology into your work and teach them to others.
  • 5+ years of experience on a product design team working across the entire product development lifecycle and successfully shipping products.
  • Experience designing web-based applications.
  • A portfolio is required with application and must demonstrate your passion for simple, intuitive, and beautiful user-centered designs. Work examples that exhibit visual design, product design, usability, and design thinking skills that span the entire process: ideation to implementation.
