About the Role

Cloudsmith is looking for a strong Product Designer to join our team. With a focus on our customer-facing web apps, your primary responsibilities will be:

  • Self-serve experience - You will design new flows and experiences that guide new and prospective customers through our web app; encouraging them to adopt our product quickly, and helping us to retain them in the long term.
  • Ground-up product design - Work with the rest of the product team on an ongoing re-design of all our customer-facing products and services; we are in total overhaul mode - you’re joining at a key juncture
  • Continuous improvement - You will look for ways to improve existing interactions and flows in our web app; refining what already exists
  • Collaboration - You will work with designers, front-end engineers, product managers, and platform engineers to guide your work through to production - ensuring the quality of the user experience is delivered

  • You must be comfortable interpreting research and analytics, and using insights to drive your design
  • You should be comfortable conducting research to inform your work
  • You must have a proven ability to understand the underlying drivers behind design; desired business outcomes, user needs, technical constraints
