WHO WE ARE
Looker is on a mission to bring better insights & data-driven decisions to every business. Everything we do is aimed at making sure our customers love every aspect of Looker, from our products & technologies to our ease of doing business & our support. We are looking for curiously brilliant individuals to join our team as we reinvent data analytics. Get data-driven & see yourself at Looker.
WHAT WE'VE GOT GOING ON
As our Product Design team has grown, we've dedicated designers to lead & contribute to all major parts of our product, including data exploration & visualizations, our bread & butter. With that scale comes a need to evolve our shared Design System to guide & leverage our collective efforts. We are looking for a Principal-level designer with strong craftsmanship skills to lead & build that design system while also supporting our dedicated teams.
Beyond design work, we're looking for you to demonstrate leadership & make a positive impact on our company, our product, & above all our customers. We want to hire someone driven to learn new things & to share that energy with everyone else. Ideally you are someone who enjoys teaching others, someone who can influence groups of people to work more efficiently together through the design system.
Our Product Designers work together in small teams embedded within each product group, each owning a specific set of customer experiences such as data modeling or data analysis. This gives each designer end-to-end ownership over the quality of that experience. As the Design System lead, you will review our collective work & actively support designers & their decision-making across all parts of the Looker product experience.
We maintain weekly design critiques, a live design system, open Slack channels for discussion, & quarterly on-sites to help us improve our processes & tooling together. We love this stuff & we love helping each other out. If you can give us your best effort, we'll help you do your best work. These are big parts of our culture.
You'll be one of the first twenty people to join Looker's design team, so you'll have a hand in shaping what this team & department become at Looker & as part of Google Cloud. Our team is distributed around the West Coast from our headquarters in Santa Cruz to our office in San Francisco to several people who are remote. We'd love for this position to be based in Santa Cruz, California, but we're open to other locations, too.
