We’re looking for a product-oriented IC design leader to join our new HR Apps team. This designer will ship products that help small business owners hire, manage, retain, and celebrate their team members. You’ll be the design representative in this product area’s cross-functional leadership team. You’ll work with your PM, engineering, and data peers to establish strategy, roadmap, and UX vision. You’ll collaborate with another senior design IC on your team to ship project-level work.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Work with your cross-functional partners to define a long-term UX vision for your product area and how it fits into Gusto’s broader vision
  • Co-lead the definition of product strategy, roadmap, team OKRs, and project direction
  • Build our collective understanding of customers’ HR needs through research and data
  • Design and ship both net-new and iterative projects that deliver consistent value to our customers
  • Contribute to Gusto’s product design leadership community by sharing your skills and experience
  • Champion our design system and platform standards, and help evolve them through your product work
  • This role has the potential to grow into a player/coach people management role over time, depending on the goals of the successful candidate

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Breadth of impact: This role will be one of Gusto’s most senior IC design leaders. You should have demonstrated experience leading design direction across multiple teams, and influencing design/product across multiple product areas.
  • Product acumen: This role will contribute directly to business and product strategy. You should be comfortable working with executive stakeholders, and be able to demonstrate how you’ve shaped business decisions.
  • Builder mindset: The person in this role will ship customer-facing products, not just plans and documents. You should be able to demonstrate how you’ve used design as a tool for communication and persuasion.
  • High quality bar: This role will be a tireless advocate for our customers’ experience with Gusto. You should be able to demonstrate how you’ve maintained design quality and accessibility across screen sizes, while shipping iteratively to deliver customer value early and often.

Nice to have:

  • Experience with or desire to grow into a people management role over time
