Senior Product Designer - Waypoint

US or Canada (Remote), UK/Germany (Remote); #LI-REMOTE

Meet the Team

As a Senior Product Designer working on Waypoint, you’ll be working with engineers, product managers, and design leadership on delivering our new vision of enabling platform engineers to define golden patterns that are easily consumed by application teams. You’ll also be a part of a growing agile team focused on building developer experiences alongside our Nomad and Vagrant products.

What We Do

Waypoint enables seamless workflows for application creation, operation, and governance to allow organizations to innovate. We are designing tools and infrastructure to help platform teams abstract and share standardized workflow with developers without making them worry about the infrastructure details.

The team is small, works primarily in public, and has an ambitious roadmap to simplify the daily workflows of software developers. That's where you come in: we're looking for a Senior Product Designer for the Waypoint team.

What You’ll Do

As a Senior Product Designer working on Waypoint, you are a passionate designer who thrives in uncertainty and ambiguity, is proactive in solving problems and collaborating with cross-functional partners, and holds a high bar for quality in design.

You'll collaborate tightly with a distributed team of peers to help shape the next version of HashiCorp’s operator and developer experiences. You'll combine research and creativity to provide our technical users with practical and elegant solutions to complex challenges. You will have a focus on execution, customer value, and impact. Together, you will partner on setting priorities, designing workflows, developing features, and shipping world-class products.
