Product Design Architect at The Predictive Index
The Predictive Index—the talent optimization leader—is an award-winning best place to work (Inc., Glassdoor, Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe).
Our mission is “Better work, better world," and we take great pride in PI’s power to supercharge workplace relationships and culture to achieve the unthinkable. We’re our own best case study! You’ll be working toward a mission that inspires you, and you’ll be surrounded by fun, smart, driven people day in and day out.
There’s a reason more than 8,000 companies—including Nissan, Citizens Bank, Drift, Subway, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Docusign, and Omni Hotels—trust PI to help them hire top talent, design winning teams, and develop leaders at every level. Come discover how we empower our clients to solve their biggest challenges and make their business dreams come true.
We are looking for an energetic experience design leader to help us mature our talent optimization platform and amplify design’s impact across the client journey. You will be supporting the newly created platform teams. In addition to liaising with platform product managers, engineering and systems teams, you will deeply collaborate with product designers and product science experts to create portable and reusable platform solutions that will power our products.
This role requires a strong command in design thinking methodology and facilitation skills. At PI, we use the power of design thinking to understand the problem and evaluate solutions through Design to Define and Experience Review sessions. You have extensive experience running design thinking workshops such as design sprints and facilitating design critique sessions with non-designers.
You rapidly distill research learnings and business problems into client journeys and experience narratives, and thrive on making connections across problem spaces and people associated with them. You articulate opportunities visually and can guide others through tradeoffs. You are proactive in taking the initiative and clear in your communication with others.
You love optimizing and evolving design processes and systems that are accessible and valuable to non-designers. You will be working closely with designOps, research, product and engineering to mature our design systems and ceremonies.
You are a confident and humble professional. You believe in mentoring and building others. You see your role as a service to others and measure your success by making it possible for great designs to happen everywhere.
