    We're looking for senior designer excited to design and build a world-class DesignOps product.

    About zeroheight 🖼

    We're building the world's first DesignOps company. DesignOps tools enable companies to design and develop user experiences in a much more systematic way and deliver high quality UX 10x faster – our mission is to enable this on a global scale!

    We've built a design system documentation product people love and thanks to this we've grown through word-of-mouth to 1500+ customers including multiple Fortune 100s. We're the market leader in our category, grew over 2x in 2021 and have the backing of world-class investors like Tribe Capital, Y Combinator and Adobe. But design system documentation is just the beginning... we're now perfectly positioned to become the leader in DesignOps and transform how products are built. That's why we've expanded to the Bay Area in 2021 to fulfil our ambition of being a truly global company 🚀 🌎

    Why is this role exciting?

    • zeroheight is working on design tools. This means you'll be helping to build a product you'd actually want to use! Many of our users are designers themselves and (as you'll know) they're a friendly bunch.
    • We're a small company and that means there are lots of opportunities to help out with all manner of things outside your normal role (such as strategy or product management). This is great if you're looking to expand your skills and get startup experience.
    • You'll be the 2nd person in the design team and therefore play a big part in building the future culture and practices. zeroheight has been design-led since our founding (we are building design tools after all!) giving design a seat at the table in everything we do.
    • The role comes with equity to provide ownership and the ability to grow with the company.

    Your impact

    Your primary responsibility will be to ensure that users understand how to use the product, but you'll be working collaboratively with the product team throughout all stages (discovery → delivery → iteration). Design is critical to zeroheight so you'll be expected to contribute to good processes and be continuously raising the bar.

    The product team's objective is to solve user's problems in ways they love and that work for the business. At zeroheight, we're working to build empowered product teams. This means teams are given problems to solve and then are empowered to solve them. Instead of focusing on output (design work / features), we want to focus on outcome (business results). We're not pretending to be 100% of the way there with this model but we're on the road. We believe everyone makes better products when they're empowered.

    You'll use the following tools / methods:

    • Prototyping - you'll use prototypes as a canvas to communicate ideas both internally and externally
    • User testing - you'll be in constant weekly contact with users: validating and refining ideas, listening to feedback and testing value
    • UX - you'll consider the experience as a whole to ensure that users can actually realise the value we're providing. This will involve thinking about the emotional, social and functional uses of the product, the onboarding, how users share their experience with others and much more.
    • Design systems - we're a design system company so..... we do indeed have a design system ourselves! You'll be part of adding to it and improving the documentation.
    • Figma - we use Figma for designing and prototyping, as well as a team whiteboard in these remote times.
    • Document everything! - we use Notion for our process documentation and try our hardest to answer every question with a link. This means we have a great knowledge-base that we're constantly improving.

    Are we a good match?

    If you tick most of the boxes below, let's talk!

    • You're looking for a serious relationship - You're really excited about DesignOps and Design Systems. You want to get stuck in and work somewhere long enough to have a real impact. You're super ambitious and not afraid of owning your work - for better or for worse - and taking on more responsibility as the company grows.
    • 5+ years experience as a UI / UX designer - You're autonomous, knowing when to innovate and when to use existing solutions. You're confident enough in your abilities to handle critical feedback well. You have years of experience under your belt in a variety of team settings working on "real life" products and talking to users. You've used a variety of different design tools and aren't afraid to learn new ones.
    • You're ready for the challenge of a startup - you love trying out a bit of everything and acquiring new skills. While startups can be a little chaotic, you appreciate them as a unique place to learn quickly through real-world problems.
    • You're user-centric - everything is about solving the user's problems. Once you've learned as much as possible from the users themselves, you use a blend of UX knowledge and an understanding of human behaviour to find solutions.
    • Based near to London - you’re able to come to our London office at least once every two weeks
