WHAT WE'VE GOT GOING ON
Looker's mission is to empower people through the smarter use of data. As we have grown the quality of the data experiences we provide, UX Design has begun to matter as much or more than a feature's underlying power. Now at Google Cloud, this UX Design is central to delivering on our strategy of comprehensive analytics solutions that customers can use at every layer of their business.
As our UX Director, you will lead a team of 15+ designers & researchers distributed across Santa Cruz, San Francisco, & elsewhere on the U.S. West Coast. We see the distributed nature of the product, engineering, & design teams as key to its success now & into the future. Team members are able to focus in product areas over time to develop domain expertise & deep customer empathy, while also maintaining the flexibility to reconfigure teams to suit evolving product needs.
In the past year, we have invested in a Design Systems team paired with a Components team in engineering. Fostering & developing our design language, its assets, & its processes, will be a critical part of Looker's next phase as a product, especially through the integration as part of GCP. You will help leverage the design infrastructure already in place & build on it. Guiding this effort will be equal parts program development, coaching & mentoring, & playing arbiter of quality.
Strong relationships up & down the engineering, product, & design organization, as well as strong executive advocacy for design & for users, will be one of the chief ways our UX Director will help the team & product flourish.
Beyond that, the UX Director will have a tremendous opportunity to accelerate the team's development & growth by helping it leverage Google's resources & design infrastructure.
