We understand that while work is just one aspect of who we are, a truly inclusive culture accounts for the full authenticity of every single human being that works here.

About the Opportunity

At Salsify, we deeply value our Product Design culture. We believe it’s okay to be wrong before you get to the right solution, and we make the space to test, learn, and iterate. We’re all about great outcomes – for our users, our team, and for Salsify – and we believe data, empathy, great design, and having fun are the best ways to get there. Every member of our team has the freedom and responsibility to make Salsify a great place to work. From talking with our users, workshopping with our peers, and designing elegant, human-centered Enterprise software, we empower our Product Designers to innovate while turning complex business processes into intuitive and delightful product solutions.

As a Senior Product Designer, you will be working inside of and supporting the teams of our Core group. The teams inside the Core Group are charged with ensuring the reliability of our foundational systems. As the Core UX Designer you will collaborate across multiple teams to support their UX needs as they arise and you will partner with Design leadership to prioritize where UX investment can have the most impact. You will also be responsible for our in-app messaging programs. Salsify uses Intercom to notify customers of upcoming changes/updates and guide them through first-time experiences via product tours. You will be supporting both our UX team and our cross-functional partners with their messaging needs. Designers at Salsify build strong relationships with their product management and software engineering counterparts on the end-to-end process of delivering thoughtful and engaging experiences.

How You'll Make an Impact

  • Partner with product management, engineering, and design leadership to prioritize the Core UX workstream and ensure consistent, high-quality experiences across our Core platform areas
  • Understand your users and build compelling end-to-end experiences that intuitively solve complex problems
  • Work autonomously with the support and mentorship of your manager and other design leaders
  • Conduct research in the service of understanding your users, the problems they face, and creating lovable experiences
  • Design experiences that guide users through complex functionality so that their work feels faster and more rewarding
  • Advance in your craft and share your knowledge with the team

You'll Enjoy This Role if You Are

  • You are a mid-career designer with a history of making an impact at enterprise SAAS companies
  • You are excited to continue growing your craft with an experienced team of designers with diverse backgrounds and share your knowledge in kind
  • You partner directly with your Product Management and Engineering counterparts and feel a sense of ownership of your product
  • You can put on your business hat when advocating for UX, and your technical hat when coordinating execution (but not coding, that’s why we have great engineers)
  • You want to deliver impactful, career-defining work to a critical product area
  • You have experience owning or being a primary contributor to a design library (ours is called Habanero!)
  • Your friends and family have asked you to stop using Figma diagrams and you dream in frames (we’re a Figma shop)

Salsify loves a good success story and it would be our privilege to help write yours! We recognize that talent and potential come in all forms and that years of experience does not guarantee on-the-job effectiveness or leadership potential.
