Stack Overflow exists to serve developers. Whether we’re helping them get answers to their questions on the public site, or within private teams, or develop new skills, we build products that millions of developers use. As a designer at Stack Overflow, you’ll create and build products that directly impact the work and the lives of those developers.

In this particular role, you’ll be working alongside a team dedicated to the Stack Overflow for Teams product. As a senior designer on this team, you’ll join a cross-functional team of developers, designers, product managers, and product researchers working on our B2B SaaS knowledge sharing and collaboration platform. Stack Overflow for Teams gives organizations a private, secure home for their team’s questions and answers, as well as a robust set of tools to manage their community. Our customers include Google, Microsoft, Bloomberg, and many other Fortune 500 names.

We’re constantly exploring new features, optimizing in-product experience for both new and existing users and more recently added a Freemium tier that gave our self-serve product led transformation a huge boost. This is a great opportunity to work on a product with a wide variety of features and complex problems with a team that’s excited to solve them.

And as a member of the product design team, you’ll also spend time working with other designers, whether that’s contributing to our design system, participating in critique, or just hanging out with us in Slack. We’re a team that rejects competition between designers and instead embraces collaboration and is always looking for ways to teach and help each other.

We’re looking for an experienced product designer - someone who has done everything from feature discovery to  early-stage design explorations, high-fidelity prototypes and mockups to front-end development, for SaaS products. But most importantly, we’re looking for someone who’s excited to join our team, to dig into big projects, and to learn and grow with us.

Skills & Requirements

What you’ll do:

  • Follow our fast-moving product development process in close collaboration with your product team consisting of engineers, researchers, product managers, and other designers.
  • Identify when user research and experience design methods are necessary, and conduct or collaborate on that discovery work
  • Partner closely with our research team, drawing insights from their work and turning those into tangible solutions
  • Design high-quality visuals, interactions, workflows, and copy that are user-centered and consistent with our design language
  • Use your design work appropriately in context with the overall product and business goals to impact and drive product strategy
  • Work with our world-class product managers and engineers to deliver your product vision, including writing design specs and reviewing work before it is shipped to millions of users
  • Contribute to a collaborative and inclusive team environment where design ideas and feedback are shared openly and with the best intentions

What we need to see:

  • At least 4 years of design experience, largely on SaaS products
  • Evidence of thoughtful, thorough product design work
  • A deep curiosity and ability to consider product strategy and vision. You don’t just care about how a feature should look, but you’re interested in why we’re designing it in the first place
  • Experience in conducting, digesting, and applying user research
  • Experience with basic front-end development (HTML, CSS)
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • High levels of organization and ability to work independently
  • (Required) Experience working on B2B SaaS products
  • (Bonus) experience with designing for developers or other technical audience
  • (Bonus) experience using (and/or contributing to) design systems
  • (Bonus) experience with design for educational products, digital workplace tools or online communities

Also note:

  • We’re a distributed, remote team and you’ll be part of a work culture that emphasizes online & asynchronous communication with minimal meetings and ceremonies
  • We’re generally very flexible on working hours, though we do ask everyone on the team to maintain an overlap with (at least) 10AM - 1PM US Eastern time
  • We don’t consider applications without cover letters - please make sure to include yours and talk about why you want to work here!

Some of what you’ll get in return:

  • Competitive Base Salary between $119K and $161K USD
  • 20 days paid vacation
  • Generous parental leave (16 weeks at 100% pay), family care leave, and paid sick days
  • Long-term incentive (equity grant)
  • Completely free health insurance (no copay, no premiums)
  • 401K match
  • Health & Wellness stipend
  • Employees will never be poked with a sharp stick

If your role is not located in one of our offices…. We’ll reimburse you up to $2,000 to set up a great home office.

If you want to work in our office… You’ll be in our headquarters in New York City, and enjoy additional benefits like free lunches, transportation reimbursement, and all the espresso you can drink.
