About the role

Fieldguide is tackling complex security and compliance data problems. We ingest and break down large data sets, power and automate the validation and verification of data, and help organizations across all industries with various financial, regulatory, security, and environmental standards. More about what we do can be found here.

A year after launch, we've brought on some of the largest audit and security service providers as customers and raised a Series A to fuel our growth. We're backed by top investors and angels including 8VC, Y Combinator, Floodgate, DNX Ventures, Global Founders Capital, AICPA/CPA.com, Eric Ries, Justin Kan, and more.

We're looking for product design hire #1. You'll be partnering closely with the company's CTO to learn the ins and outs of our industry, product, and customers. If interested in management, you'll have the opportunity to build and lead your own team of product designers as we grow. You'll also be helping to define our design systems, processes, and design culture largely from the ground up.

Responsibilities

  • Deeply understand our customers and their workflows.

  • Establish and guide the end-to-end design process for the lifecycle of products and features, from user research, to conceptualization, to launch, to product iteration.

  • Set the bar for the design organization by building a trusting partnership with product and engineering and providing mentorship and guidance to junior designers.

  • Bring first principles thinking and a focus on continuous improvement to your design work. You’ll be helping us challenge the status quo in the industry and making our products and processes better over time.

The following should describe you

  • 3-5+ years of experience as a product designer on SaaS products with a heavy focus on workflows and complex data.

  • Excitement to work on cybersecurity and financial products that make complex standards easier for companies to access and manage. Bonus if you have experience working on security, compliance, or accounting-related products.

  • Experience leading customer research sessions, aggregating insights, and communicating findings to product managers, engineers, and executives.

  • Ability to establish and lead design systems that span across features and products.

  • Ability to work iteratively, mapping user journeys, and taking design concepts from low fidelity wireframes to full Figma prototypes as necessary

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills with a track record of cross-functional collaboration.

  • Excitement to shape the culture and processes of a young design organization.
