Product Design Manager

San Francisco, CA
Remote Considered

Description

Webflow has huge ambitions to fundamentally change the way websites and web applications are designed and built. We believe that web development should be accessible to anyone who loves to create, not just those who can understand the complexities of code. We're looking for someone who shares this vision for the future and who is enthusiastic about building creative tools for designers, entrepreneurs, marketers, and other non-technical professionals.

Webflow is looking for an experienced Product Design Manager to lead a team of designers. You'll help the team to translate powerful code-based paradigms into intuitive visual tooling. Candidates must have strong mentoring, communication skills. The role combines growing and managing a team with some design contribution. Candidates must have strong visual and interaction skills and the ability to help shape product strategy. You'll guide the team through some of the most critical parts of the product process: understanding user needs through research, creating interactive prototypes, user testing, designing high-fidelity interfaces, defining components with the engineering team, and extensively testing your product to make sure it meets all project goals. 

This is a full-time position in our San Francisco office. In addition to a competitive salary and equity package, we include: awesome medical, dental, and vision plans, employer-funded HRA plan, 4+ weeks of paid vacation, catered lunches and stocked kitchen, new apple gear, commuter benefits, $100 monthly Lyft credit, paid parental leave programs, in-office bicycle storage, and fun team-building events. 

Note: You'll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.
