RigUp is the fastest growing startup in the complex and challenging oil & gas industry. We’re seeking a talented product designer who can quickly become a key member of our product development and design teams. If you are ready to push yourself and expand your career, we’d like to hear from you.
Our team has great people from all over the US and beyond, from all sorts of industries and all walks of life. We highly value the different perspectives and unique ideas that diversity brings to our company, and consider it an absolute necessity for our future.
If you have a passion for product design and a curiosity for challenging industries, an interest in design systems and improved processes and can maintain a balance with vision, empathy for users and engineering constraints, then you might be perfect for our team!
WHAT YOU'LL BRING
• You’ll contribute towards significant, product-defining features within your first few weeks, tackling design research, user experience and interface design while taking on more responsibility as quickly as you can.
• You’ll develop deep expertise in key aspects of our product, users, design systems and brand over your first few months, establishing yourself as a design leader on the team and growing our continuous improvement culture.
• You’ll drive improvements to design processes through implemented systems and an understanding of best practices and ideologies that will be utilized across the design and product teams.
• You’ll thrive as someone who learns quickly, works well independently and with others, and above all gets stuff done. We are a product development team that moves fast, values failure when it teaches us something, and wants people to solve problems.
• You are committed to quality. You’re a strong advocate for usability, a pixel-perfectionist with visual design, and care deeply about working on experiences that improve the users’ experience as well as grow the business. Most likely, you’re a natural problem solver and expert communicator with a strong eye for design.
