Principal Product Designer (Remote)
Company: Process Street
Posted on: January 13, 2022
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

effective creativity, congratulations, you've found your new
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.
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
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.

tours (only if you're comfortable), and more to build
