Job Description

User Experience | Design | Prototype | Technology | Complexity  

Do you love to explore all possible “Why’s”, “What-ifs” and “How’s” to infinity and beyond, to solve design problems and craft extraordinary user interfaces? Are you looking for teammates who appreciate open communication and face challenges together?  

As a Senior Product Experience Designer, you will join a global team of designers & researchers sitting across our R&D labs in Austria, Poland, Spain, and the United States. 

You will significantly impact the future direction of our product in the space of Kubernetes by tackling UX challenges, shaping intuitive customer journeys, and translating them to delightful UIs to help bring our company vision to life. 

Organizations across the world are fast adopting Kubernetes. Its ability to provide a highly scalable platform for running an almost infinite variety of workloads makes it the perfect vehicle to drive digitalization in companies. One of the biggest challenges for you as a UX designer is to leverage the different perspectives on Kubernetes. Typically, it’s scattered between platform owners, who drive and own the platform and are mainly interested in the wellbeing of the system overall, and application teams, who want to run their apps with as least effort as possible and monitor them. Building a shared experience for both is what we strive for. 

Your role  

  • Own and iteratively improve the end-to-end experience for specific target audiences within the space of Kubernetes and gather a deep understanding of user needs.  

  • Leverage Dynatrace AI-powered diagnostic capabilities to improve the observability of K8s clusters and assessing how to best help users with AI-assisted workflows. 

  • Consider and design within UI standards, accessibility constraints, and responsive design aspects by leveraging our design system to build your designs. Contribute and help to evolve our design system. 

  • Evaluate tech constraints, understand, and work around dependencies, tech requirements, user requirements, and the related impact on the user experience of the product. 

  • Be hands-on to visualize, prototype, test, and measure design solutions – e.g., with information architecture, user flows, wireframes, mockups, but also user testing with surveys and interviews, usability heuristics, user-centered metrics, etc. 

  • Act as a customer advocate while continuously partnering with product leads, lead product engineers, software engineers, product architects, and other design practitioners to help bring Kubernetes use-cases into our product. 

  • Craft solutions that are desirable, viable, and feasible while evolving our product’s language and improving existing design solutions to make them accessible and intuitive. 

Qualifications

  • You have at least 5 years of experience and a demonstrated track record of designing, shipping, and iterating digital software products and systems — building software experience beyond websites and campaigns. Engineering background and/or mature experience working on Enterprise Software as well is a big bonus. 

  • Your strengths and interests lie in UX design, but also in the creation of beautiful interfaces. You have a good eye for visual and communications design and mastering low and high-fidelity prototypes is mediation for you.  

  • You integrate user experience and design work on the product in agile working models and closely with development where ideation, future vision, detailed improvements, and emerging tasks often happen at the same time. 

  • You have strong communication and presentation skills, to help people understand the rationale behind design proposals and the complex nuances of design problems. 

  • You are passionate about building, prototyping, and continually evolving digital products throughout the product life cycle while engaging in user testing sessions for your designs and synthesizing feedback to actionable changes. 

  • You are an excellent collaborator - adapting to feedback from both users and internal stakeholders, building stronger products as a result. 

  • You are fluent in designing for the web as canvas, you should be able to prototype dev-ready interactions and interfaces inside of your favorite set of tools. 

  • You keep accessibility top of mind for all your designs and can find ways to make beautiful experiences usable by everyone.  

  • You gathered your first experiences in transforming businesses while iteratively designing for a new platform as well as unifying multiple products would be an asset
