About Highspot
Highspot is pioneering the category that is fundamentally changing the way companies increase sales productivity. On a mission to transform the way millions of people work with sales enablement, Highspot is committed to building breakthrough software with a spark of magic. We believe a great place to work is about more than the work – it’s about what the company stands for, and how it authentically represents its values in the real world. To this end, we have put intentional focus on creating equitable workspaces for each of our employees. Our goal is to create a culture where everyone feels a deep sense of belonging and is empowered to be an agent of change, with the ability to transform themselves, their workplace, and their world.
About the Role
We are seeking a driven design leader that has that perfect balance of skills to drive the project forward, manage the team to make it happen, and willingness to roll up their sleeves to craft designs. This person is experienced with shepherding designs from initial ideation, through rapid iteration, to pixel-perfect implementation. As a seasoned manager, they will have the opportunity to hire senior designers and craft a team of their own.
This candidate should have a passion for usability, an eye for visual consistency, and a knack for reducing the complex to the bare essentials. He or she is an effective diplomat with strong communication and organization skills who is willing to advocate for the design position in the face of senior balancing points from product management and engineering leadership. “World-class” is the bar and this candidate has the desire to take us there!
