Senior/Principal Product Designer at Highfive
San Francisco, CA, US

Work from home!

Highfive is looking for experienced product designers for our video conferencing product, one of the new and innovative solutions in the usually stagnant video conferencing industry. With large parts of the workforce moving towards remote work, come join us at the forefront of what it means to design experiences for effective collaboration and human connection.

As part of this team, you will explore and propose future products in response to major new opportunities in the field of communication in the workplace.

We are looking for candidates with a portfolio of successful projects in their past. You are great at several of the following: 

  • Interaction design
  • Prototyping
  • User research and testing
  • Design of early products
  • Systems thinking and information architecture
  • Systematic problem solving
  • Constraint gathering

We are especially interested in candidates that combine interaction design with either user research or front-end skills. You don’t have to be an expert in these, but as Highfive is still a startup, we are looking for generalists, and people with a passion to learn and grow in multiple related areas.

You can demonstrate that you have invested in working well with your peers and other disciplines, such as engineering and PM, throughout your career – because we’re dedicated to both high-quality design and great collaboration.

YOU NEED 

  • Passion for making people communicate better in the workplace.
  • Passion for learning new things.
  • Introspection, humility, maturity, excellent communication skills, and strong systematic problem solving ability.
  • Tolerance for the realities of early product development: you’ll generate and test lots of ideas quickly, throw out most of your work, and experience permanent ambiguity around what projects you’ll be working on next.

WE OFFER

  • Fully remote work setup possible — this is what we do for a living!
  • Competitive salaries and stock compensation.
  • Paid time off as needed.
  • A great team that has already delivered a best-in-class product in its category.
  • Meaningful work on a product that is central to how our customers communicate every day.
  • A product that makes real money, in a startup that has proven its ability to execute on a hard problem.
  • Comprehensive insurance including medical, dental, vision, and life.

We are headquartered in Redwood City, CA, but our team is highly distributed. We are looking for the best qualified individuals regardless of where you are. If you are in the Bay Area, plan to work from our office, but if you're remote, plan to work from home. As a company that makes a video conferencing product, we're very comfortable with remote work!
