Contrast Security named to Inc.'s “Best Workplaces of 2020”
Contrast Security is the world’s leading provider of security technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyberattacks, heralding the new era of self-protecting software. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate assessment and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio, without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has sensors that work actively inside applications to uncover vulnerabilities, prevent data breaches, and secure the entire enterprise from development, to operations, to production.
This position is located in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We work remotely right now, but when it’s safe to reopen our offices, the person in this role must be able to regularly commute to our Belfast location.
The Opportunity
At Contrast, we make application security smart and simple for software teams. But simple is not easy, and the struggle is real.
We are looking for a senior level product designer to help us bring a clear, actionable story about security risk to our customers. You are comfortable creating prototypes or concepts to review with users, working with complex data, and have an interest in data visualization. You have built or maintained design systems and know why they matter so much. While we don’t expect you to lead user research or usability testing, you are happy to lend a hand.
In this role, you will largely cover two application security products: one that monitors open-source libraries and new product that strengthens our platform. You may be assigned to support other product needs, as necessary.

What You’ll Do:

  • Work with UX designers and engineers to create concepts and evolve them into workflows, wireframes, and final mockups or visual assets. Help define and clarify user stories.
  • Seek internal and external design reviews with your user experience colleagues, product teams, and customers to refine your thinking. Partner where you can.
  • Improve and maintain our design system alongside other product designers and front-end engineers. Fight visual and interactive inconsistency across our products.
  • Participate in user research or usability testing efforts to understand problems or surface opportunities for intended audiences. Inform your design choices with this deeper understanding.
  • Always collaborate. You know how to work well with UX designers, Agile development teams, and product managers.
  • Bring leadership: propose solutions and reach out to make them happen.

What You’ll Bring:

  • 5+ years of product design experience that includes enterprise products. Brand or consumer product design alone is not sufficient.
  • Strong storytelling skills. You can present the user’s point-of-view to teams and stakeholders through your design choices and encourage empathy.
  • Expertise with design tools to visualize your work, such as Figma or Sketch.
  • Sketching or drawing ability to quickly communicate ideas.
  • Attention to detail and well-developed problem-solving skills
  • A portfolio of work that demonstrates how your design choices solved user problems. Please include access to this in your application or we cannot consider you.

  • Preferred:
  • BS/BA/BFA in art, design, or related field
  • Experience designing DevOps or security software with a wide range of integrations
  • Familiar using and maintaining design systems in your workflow
  • Data visualization skill

What We Offer

  • Competitive compensation package (salary + equity)
  • A fun and dynamic environment where you work with other like minded people on products which make a real difference to the security of our customers
  • Free in-office lunches every day
  • Healthcare packages
We are changing the world of software security. Do it with us.  We believe in what we do and are passionate about helping our customers secure their business.If you’re looking for a challenge and want to enjoy where you work, you’ll love Contrast Security.
