Product Designer

About the Role

Capsule8 is building real time zero day attack detection for production Linux infrastructure. Traditional security approaches have been unable to detect or scale to the sheer volume of data being generated in modern production systems. Capsule8 has brought innovative technology to the scene to tackle this problem including an open source sensor. Our biggest customers include Lyft, Fastly, and Looker.

We are looking for a product designer to join the application team in New York City — reporting to the engineering manager and leading work on UI and UX. The application is the primary user interface for visualization, workflow, and configuration of our data. Upcoming projects include building out our hosted offering and deployment management system, and building configuration wizards to help customers get the most of our analytics.

The team is highly collaborative, curious, and enjoys a unique vantage point to learn about and interact with the rest of the company.

What You Will Do

  • Take responsibility for and ownership of the visual direction of our application
  • Increase the value of the user experience by making it intuitive and beautiful
  • Be actively involved in defining the strategy for your program, thinking in terms of design systems, not just screens
  • Design and prototype multiple ideas quickly to validate product directions
  • Regularly validate and refine ideas with metrics as well as collect new insights
  • Regularly give and take feedback collaboratively to improve our product (with engineers, product management, customers, etc.)
  • Partner with engineers as they build and ship features

Desired Background

  • 4+ years relevant design experience at a high tech, product-driven company
  • Experience designing digital apps and systems; you have helped ship products before, ideally in the SaaS/B2B space
  • Clearly communicate design work with solid rationale that uses research and data
  • A driven self starter who is excited about collaborating and building relationships with other teams in the company like
  • Marketing and Product Management
  • Possess a strong understanding of the product development process, from problem definition through to detailed visual design
  • Creative problem-solver who can iterate with low-fidelity sketches of workflows and translate those into beautiful high-fidelity designs using Sketch, Figma, and others

Why Capsule8?

We are big believers in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. While we work very hard and care deeply about making Linux infrastructure as secure as possible, we want our team to have room for their family, friends and themselves. We’re also strongly committed to diversity, providing all our employees a nurturing, open and inquisitive working environment. Finally, we care deeply about ensuring every employee personal growth, so we work with each employee to build a career plan that benefits everyone.

Diversity & Inclusion

At Capsule8, we are committed to building a culture that respects and embraces all walks of life, inclusive of all genders, race, culture, sexual orientation, age, and all other identities. We will make accommodations when interviewing anyone with special needs, such as neurodiversity.
