Lead Designer


As the first Design hire in Akeero you will be responsible for establishing and managing great design processes across the organisation. We set out from the beginning to take something that is very complex and distill it down into something that is simple and enjoyable.

Our product allows users to graph their cloud infrastructure in a way that is easy to understand from both a visual and programming standpoint. Cloud infrastructure can quickly become sprawling and overwhelming to understand - and when you add in multiple configurations, a constantly changing environment and increasing adoption of multiple cloud providers - it becomes impossible. The ideal candidate will be able to understand the problem and formulate solutions that are intuitive and delightful to use.

We are a remote team distributed across Europe and the Middle East so you should be comfortable working in this environment.

What you will do:

  • Design and own end-to-end flows and user experiences that delight our users.
  • Own the design process from start to finish. From leading research into our customers, to ideation sessions, to hi-fidelity mock-ups.
  • Design user experiences from the very first contact point.
  • Work closely with the product and engineering teams on product strategy and execution.
  • Refine and manage Akeero design and brand assets.

What you bring with you:

  • You are customer obsessed - everything should revolve around how best to add value to and delight the user.
  • Comfortable designing features and functionality from scratch.
  • Experience in designing a SaaS product - preferably in the software engineering domain.
  • Founder mindset - you should thrive in a high-speed, changeable environment.
  • 3+ years of experience in design, delivering high quality designs that improve the customers' experience.
  • Strong storytelling and communication skills to clearly articulate design decisions and interact with stakeholders.
  • Experience in conducting user research and leveraging this to influence your decision making.
  • Experience in wireframing and prototyping tools such as Figma.

What we offer:

  • A chance to shape and influence an early-stage company backed by leading VCs such as Sequoia and Frontline.
  • A competitive salary and meaningful share options.
  • Truly flexible working times, to allow you to achieve a better work-life balance.
  • 25 days annual leave.
  • Maternity/Paternity leave.
  • Wedding leave.
  • Half day Fridays.
  • Remote working stipend.
  • Training and development opportunities.
