Trace Data

Product Designer

Full-Time in Oakland, CA - Senior - Product

Trace Data is developing a ground breaking product to help companies monitor and secure their data. We’re integrating the world of security, observability and connectivity.

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building successful products and systems; you’re comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces; you have exquisite attention to detail; and love learning new technologies and systems.

Our Product Designer will own and lead the visual design of our web application and provide design guidance into other developer-oriented aspects of our product such as the CLI (command-line interface) and customer facing APIs.

You will:

  • Work closely with our product and engineering team to create features that delight our customers and make them wonder why this hasn’t been done before.
  • Build a design roadmap that continually improves our UX and pushes our team to do amazing UI work.
  • Develop and expand product design systems, component libraries and visual assets.
  • Focus on what you do best — whether that’s sketches, wireframes, prototypes, designs, or code—and you’ll have the opportunity to sharpen the skills you’re looking to develop.
  • Work in a highly collaborative fashion with the design, product, and engineering teams.
  • Participate in design reviews and share your work regularly with the company.

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Are an expert in either UI, UX, or visual design, but skilled in more disciplines across product design.
  • Can reduce complex problems down to the right balance of flexibility, power, and ease of use.
  • Have experience designing for enterprise and developer-focused products.
  • Work on very broadly defined, loose concepts, and sometimes on narrowly defined, tactical deliverables.
  • Are comfortable working in a very fast moving environment and able to deliver high quality work quickly.
  • You care about details and are excited to keep pushing your work until is pixel-perfect.
  • Have proven communication, presentation, and organizational skills.
  • Are skilled in explaining your work, process, and decisions and crave feedback.
  • Think in systems and are able to extrapolate and extend shared patterns and behaviors.
  • Are uncompromisingly service-minded towards our users and your colleagues but able to set and achieve priorities that find the perfect balance between benefiting the project, the design team, and the company.
  • Have 5+ years relevant design experience at a tech, product-driven company.
