About the role

As Vectrix's first Product Designer, you will influence and drive product decisions to capture a growing, yet underserved market and lead the charge towards establishing Vectrix as the ubiquitous, fan favorite security solution.

Working closely with the founding team, your purview will cover the research, design, and implementation domains surrounding the Vectrix product.

  • A basic understanding of how software development and web applications work
  • 3+ years of product design experience
  • Understand how to optimize time effectively to balance creation of product debt while shipping as fast as possible

Bonus

  • You can write HTML, CSS, or most importantly, some light JS
  • Background within security industry (huge plus!)
  • Excel at communicating complex issues in an easy to understand way
  • Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university or equivalent in years experience

  • Work with a driven, world-class team that’s on a mission.
  • See your input make a direct impact towards our success.
  • Grow professionally with access to resources that ensure you grow with us too.

Technology

We're cloud first in all that we do. Our backend is built in Python/Django and is based on a micro service architecture running within Docker and AWS EKS (Kubernetes). Our backend utilizes AWS services like S3, RDS, EC2, and Lambda. We use React on the frontend and leverage Material UI and Bootstrap for the majority of UI components. We live in Slack, but code lives in GitHub. We leverage Notion and Gitbooks for documentation.
