As a Principal Product Designer you will get to create a unique customer- facing area of the Hyperscience product, such as human <> ML interactions, AI/ML model management, workflow orchestration, cloud deployment, or developer experiences. Creating these will involve closely collaborating with a fully staffed squad of a Product Manager, Engineering Manager, backend, frontend, and machine learning engineers.
Hyperscience Designers apply user-centered design and lean product principles to address complex enterprise software challenges at the bleeding edge of technology. Designers have an end-to-end purview that includes performing research to discover user pains and needs, prototyping and testing solutions, and designing high-quality visual artifacts to communicate those solutions to their team and broader stakeholders. Candidates should have expertise in research as well as interaction and visual design for complex web applications.
