Pivotal Labs is a recognized leader in agile software development practices. We build consumer and enterprise web and mobile applications for global clients and startups. We are currently looking for experienced, creative designers to join our team and help us continue to innovate in the field. We have openings for designers with a variety of backgrounds, including: Design Research, User Experience, Interaction, and Visual Design.
Why we love what we do (and so could you)
Seriously collaborative, even with people not on our teams
Immerse yourself in one project at a time
Daily product decision making and real product delivery with product managers and developers
Freedom to try out new design processes; in the spirit of agile, do what works, try new things, stop doing things that don’t work; not a lot of constraints on the “creative” process
You are always shipping!
Environment that encourages learning and growing as a professional and individual and infrastructure to support and motivate those goals
Community oriented design team
We really care about design and don’t cut corners – and still we’re shipping all the time!
All the designers have different skillsets: you’re not expected to be an expert in everything but having access to someone who probably is means we all get smarter by teaching and learning
What we do as Product Designers for web and mobile applications
Maintain a user-centered approach in design perspective and practice
Work as a collaborative team member with clients, developers, and fellow designers
Lead products from discovery and framework through iterative development and delivery
Help product managers assess and prioritize opportunities and constraints
Guide product decisions through user research, customer development, and iterative feedback loops
Determine best practice approaches and lead the client through our process
Rapidly iterate on design prototypes and working applications
Conduct user testing, interviews, and analysis
Develop visual identity systems, data visualizations, visual design, illustrations, etc.
Produce materials for clients and developers, including user flows, wireframes, mockups, live style guides, and assets
How you can become a Pivot
Be open-minded, creative, and self-critical; be collaborative and communicative
Be thoughtful about the role of design in relation to contemporary technology; be committed to lifelong design learning
Have strong experience working independently with clients
Have experience designing full-service consumer and business applications
Bonus: Knowledge of front-end technologies and frameworks (HAML/SASS, grid systems, responsive design) would be a huge plus!
2+ years experience with agile and/or lean philosophy and methods
5+ years experience as a Product Designer
