Our goal is to reset the UX bar, redefine expectations, and bring world-class usability to cybersecurity in a way that ensures our products are easy to learn, use and manage.

Your Opportunity:

  • Act as the user experience ambassador - Communicate broadly and present design solutions to the team and the broader organization. Defend design decisions and incorporate feedback into the design cycle
  • Be Agile – You can operate in an Agile environment and, in it, you’ll drive usability initiatives to improve overall user experiences
  • Emphasize organization and transparency – Organize your work so that it can be easily accessed and understood by others on the team
  • Create and deliver great products! - Design experiences that are natural to use and beautiful to look at

What You'll need:

  • BS/MS in Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors, or equivalent experience
  • 7+ years of professional experience as a UX designer
  • Ability to translate complex concepts into easy to understand information architecture and user interaction
  • 3+ years of experience working in the security domain

  • Experience in leading design projects with an iterative process
  • Experience in working closely with engineering and PMs on complex enterprise applications (e.g., data visualization, highly interactive apps, etc.)
  • Experience driving UX strategy across an organization
  • Ability to work effectively within a cross-functional and multi-cultural team environment
  • Strong communication skills and a positive attitude
  • A strong portfolio that showcases your work, which provides details of your role on projects and shows examples of functional designs that you have developed from requirements through design delivery

And Ideally:
