The Role

About the role

You will be our first Head-level design teammate. You will own the design vision and execution for all products in our Deployed Engineering division, which spans our new product bets. You will help define what Design means at Vannevar – you’ll drive a cohesive product suite vision for the company, build things that matter for the mission, partner with and integrate engineering into the development process, and develop a world class design team. This role reports to the Head of Deployed Engineering and will work closely with engineering leadership.

What you'll do

  • Understand the needs of our customers, and translate the complexity of the missions we support into beautiful, functional software
  • Lead design development for all our new products that are in the 0 to 1 phase
  • Develop a cohesive design vision and language that can be shared across the entire product portfolio (from new to mature products)
  • Foster a culture of great UX across our product suite
  • Build and grow a small team of world class designers

What we look for

  • You have 5+ years of experience managing a design team
  • You have proven experience and success in software design, particularly in a B2B or B2G environment
  • You have experience rolling out design practices and processes where they didn't exist before
  • You hire and develop great designers, and can dynamically adjust your team as team needs change
  • You have a track record of partnering deeply with engineering, product, and BD
  • You must be able to obtain and hold a U.S. security clearance at the TS/SCI level

What we offer

We’re proud to offer competitive benefits that support our employees. Some key highlights of our benefits package include:

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • 100% remote first culture. You can work from anywhere in the US and all full time employees have WeWork access
