About the Role

Gusto is first and foremost customer-driven. We take pride in making informed decisions based on customer research and data while balancing short and long term technical decisions. If you are a strategic customer advocate who enjoys complex problems and improving customer experiences, we’d love to hear from you!  

Product Design at Gusto is made up of over 55 creative, collaborative, people who care deeply about our mission to empower small businesses and their employees. We’re a cross-functional bunch focused on design, research, and writing who are always looking for opportunities to build understanding and empathy for the people who use Gusto. We don’t care a whole lot about swim lanes and we work closely with our partners in product, engineering, data, and marketing. We are passionate advocates for thoughtful, crafted, and inclusive experiences and we believe great design can make hard things possible, even delightful.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Deeply understand and solve complex problems to give our customers peace of mind

  • Design simple, easy-to-use flows and experiences that delight our customers

  • Partner with PMs, engineers, and copywriters across the company to oversee user experience for products and features from conception to launch

  • Develop deep empathy for our customers and translate both qualitative insights and quantitative data into creative ideas and informed design decisions

  • Cultivate a creative design process that is built on inclusion and strong cross-functional collaboration

  • Contribute to high-level strategic decisions with the product team

  • Provide and seek feedback from other designers to always push the bar for quality

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 4+ years of in-house product design experience

  • Experience designing and shipping complex products informed in data and customer insights

  • Ability to form clear hypotheses around design decisions and lay out a path to validate them

  • Industry experience designing at every step of the development process, from brainstorming to post-launch research

  • Generative and evaluative research experience

  • Previous experience designing products that meet accessibility standards and compliance guidelines such as WCAG

  • Experience mentoring less experienced designers and elevating craft quality

  • Experience balancing long-term design goals with an Agile-based iterative approach 

  • Strong communication skills and enthusiasm for collaborating cross-functionally 

  • Ability to embrace ambiguous situations as opportunities to create clarity

  • Passion for Gusto’s mission and the impact we can have on the world

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $120,000-$170,000 in Denver & most remote locations, and $160,000-$200,000 for San Francisco & New York. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
