Job Description:

Who We Are

Process Street is a no-code workflow platform startup from San Francisco. We help our customers build, document, automate, and track recurring workflows. Our platform stores knowledge where the action happens, ensuring thorough and error free execution of workflows that our global customers run their businesses on.

We service over 3k customers around the world, such as Airbnb, Spotify, AstraZeneca and Accenture, and are VC-backed by Accel, Salesforce, and Atlassian.

Process Street was founded on a strong belief in the work-life benefits of a healthy, collaborative remote culture. We value flexibility because many of us are parents, travelers, or just creatives who aren't inspired by the construct of a mundane 9-to-5. Spread across 9 different time zones, we communicate asynchronously, work autonomously, and take real ownership of our work.

If you're entrepreneurial and seek an environment that values your effective creativity, congratulations, you've found your new home!

The Opportunity

The Principal Product Designer is responsible for partnering closely with Engineering and Product Leaders to set the design vision and direction for our platform, raise the visual and interaction design quality and get teams working in a way that makes Process Street awesome!

With our team of senior product designers, you will set the vision for our product's creative identity, articulate it clearly and convincingly, and guide the team through its implementation.You will be responsible for developing and evangelizing a design system and practice that pairs with the Shape UP methodology. You will help create consistent and beautiful experiences; developing the standards and guidelines which clarify the expectations of our design teams, and that empower the designers within your team. You will perform quantitative and qualitative research to identify improvement and new feature opportunities, whilst ensuring company wide transparency on product evolution.

About You
You want agency. We practice the Shape Up process, and run 6-week cycles and 2-week cooldowns. For the 6-week cycles, PMs provide a problem statement and some guidelines - no tickets, no detailed specs, no hi-fidelity solutions, and no estimates. Designers and engineers are trusted to craft the best solution possible in the cycle using user research, data, experience, and grit. During the 2-week cooldowns, you have the autonomy to work on what's important to you. If a lot of responsibility, freedom, and ambiguity sounds refreshing, this role is for you.
You value collaboration. You know that understanding the constraints and viewpoints of your peers across engineering, product, and design results in a better user experience. If you find yourself actively seeking out the opinion of engineers, for example, you're probably a strong candidate for this role.
You love process, but loathe bureaucracy and ceremony. We think process is a tool. Used well, it makes us a better, faster team. But when it's not doing that, we drop it. We also avoid unnecessary meetings whenever possible. A typical week for our engineers and designers has fewer than 5 hours of meetings.
You love to ship. We move fast. We deploy continuously behind feature flags, and release to customers at the end of every cycle. This is a hands-on role. You'll be designing a lot, and seeing your designs shipped to production daily.
You want to have a big impact. We're a small team and we're still early stage. We don't have designated areas of responsibility, and everyone wears the product hat. Every cycle brings new challenges, and your sphere of influence is wide. You love the variety and don't want to be shackled to a single project for years.
You're well-versed in design thinking, design systems, and modern design software. You've led design sprints. You enjoy using tools like Figma, Miro, and Storybook to collaborate with your peers in real-time. And you're excited to maintain and contribute to a design system.
You have five or more years of experience in product design. While the job posting notes the role as a Lead Product Designer, we will hire in a range of levels for this position. So if the role excites you, and you have five years of experience, but don't have a "Lead" title, you should apply.

Our Benefits
Fully remote team - No offices, no commute, check-in from a destination of your choosing!
Unlimited PTO policy - Most take 3-4 weeks, plus their major holidays, AND a company-wide week off in December
Annual company offsite* (when not in a pandemic of course) In lieu of an offsite, we do encourage and sponsor small group meetups so that you can meet your teammates face to face around the world.
Social time - We know human connections are what make teams strong. We regularly do coffee chats, game-playing, story-telling, house tours (only if you're comfortable), and more to build connections.
Generous health insurance for US employees and their families
Equity for all full-time roles
