Job Role

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. We believe that web development should be accessible to anyone who loves to create, not just those who can understand the complexities of code. Design plays a central role in our company, especially since many of our customers are designers. Our teams are focused on solving the most important customer needs while maintaining a high bar for quality, and each core product area has at least one product designer embedded as a key partner.

We’re looking for a Product Designer to partner with product designers across areas to ensure the highest quality user experience for our customers. This person will shape the processes and tools that enable our product design team, as well as conceptualize and drive initiatives to elevate the impact of design across our entire organization.

Job Responsibilities
  • Formalize our design component library and establish criteria to govern its use, adoption, and evolution
  • Leverage systems thinking to identify opportunities for improvements to process and collaboration that will elevate the product design team’s output and impact
  • Be responsible for ensuring a cohesive user experience by identifying and mediating the impact of design decisions across the entire product ecosystem
  • Partner with our brand design team to evolve the visual design of our product
  • Act as a design evangelist across the organization to communicate and demonstrate the value of design within the product development process
  • Create a range of deliverables, from written process documentation to high-fidelity UI
  • Contribute to key projects within our Tools & Workflows product area, including Designer Experience, Core, and Accessibility.

Job Requirements

You’ll thrive as a Product Designer in this role if you:

  • Enjoy fostering collaboration and building shared understanding and buy-in among stakeholders across an organization
  • Thrive under the autonomy to conceptualize and manage your own initiatives
  • Can break down large, complex problems into discrete projects
  • Are eager to learn and expand your skillsets
  • Are a strong communicator with experience creating written documentation
  • Can navigate and quickly move forward within a scaling company building a complex tool
  • Embody servant leadership and approach feedback with radical candor
  • Have previous experience facilitating the adoption of visual design and/or patterns across multiple features or products


If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running.

Company

At Webflow, we believe that our success will be defined not only by what we do — but also by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”:
