At Contrast, we make application security smart and simple for software teams. But simple is not easy, and the struggle is real. We are looking for a senior UX designer to help us learn more about our users and cover areas in our products that need greater consistency across the user experience and across our products and integrations. Systems thinkers will love this chance to straighten crooked paths, define our platform, and establish norms for integrations workflow.

What you’ll do:
  • Lead design research efforts to understand problems or surface opportunities for our users, who are security experts and software developers. Translate insights into action.
  • Model the user experience from rough to refined, using sketches, flows, concepts, prototypes, and annotated wireframes. Participate in storymapping and defining or grooming user stories
  • Seek internal and external design reviews to refine your thinking.
  • Create, run, and analyze usability tests on the existing product or high-fidelity designs and prototypes
  • Always collaborate. You know how to work well with product designers, Agile development teams, and product managers.
What you’ll bring:
  • 5+ years of UX design experience that includes enterprise products and a lead role. Brand or consumer product design alone is not sufficient.
  • Solid experience in methods for user research, design thinking, and UX design
  • Strong storytelling skills. You can clearly present the user’s point-of-view to your teams and other stakeholders.
  • Expertise with design tools to visualize your work, including InVision, Sketch, and Abstract.
  • Sketching or drawing ability to quickly communicate ideas
  • Attention to detail and well-developed problem-solving skills
  • Ability to learn and distill technical concepts quickly
  • A portfolio of work that demonstrates design thinking in action. Please include access to this in your application or we cannot consider you.
  • BS/BA in art, design, human computer interaction (HCI), information science, or related field
  • Quantitative research experience, including user analytics in Pendo or similar products and survey methods.
  • Experience designing DevOps or security software with a wide range of integrations
