GitHub is looking for an experienced Product Design Manager to lead a group of talented designers working in the Developer Cloud area.

We build solutions that enable engineers to package and deploy their software right alongside their code quickly.

With these products, we enable our millions of customers to follow industry best practices, increasing the impact of software solutions globally.

Responsibilities:

  • You will help set your team up for success and enable them to do their best work, providing and soliciting regular feedback.
  • You will help the team prioritize quarterly projects and incoming requests against business needs, contributing to the strategy of your area of responsibility.
  • You will work with designers on your team to develop their career paths and provide coaching to grow their skills, building a culture of design excellence.
  • You will be responsible for communicating your team’s goals and seeking opportunities to collaborate with other teams working on related projects.
