Senior Product Designer

We are looking for an experienced product designer to join our API team full time. We’ve just launched our GPT-3 API, enabling businesses to build products in days that previously took months and entire machine learning teams. We’ve got tens of thousands of companies on our waitlist, and we need your help to build a delightful and intuitive developer experience, and push the boundaries of what’s possible with the technology we develop at OpenAI.

You are a natural collaborator and an excellent communicator, who is able to transform raw ideas into product designs. You care deeply about user experience and have excellent visual design skills. You should be a self-starter, self-motivated, and able to execute even when sometimes given very broadly defined, loose projects ideas.

In this role you will:

  • Define the visual product and user experience design for our API product.
  • Work closely with engineers and product managers to define both the long-term strategy and the short-term tactics for that product.
  • Work in a highly collaborative fashion with the design, product, and project teams.
  • Create and design compelling user-flows, experiences and products.

You might be a good fit for this role if you:

  • Are an expert in either UI, UX, or visual design, and skilled in more disciplines across product design.
  • Enjoy striking a balance between functional and aesthetic design.
  • Have experience designing for business and developer-focused products.
  • Are skilled in explaining your work, process, and decisions to cross-functional stakeholders and crave feedback to help you produce your best work.
  • Enjoy iterative design in a team setting.
  • Can seamlessly balance being process-driven and moving fast.
  • Are a thoughtful, rigorous and data-driven decision maker.
  • Care about details and go all the way with your work until all details are attended to.
  • Demonstrate creative and innovative problem solving and possess prior leadership abilities.
  • Are proficient with existing design tools (Figma, Sketch, Adobe Creative Suite, prototyping tools) and are excited to incorporate new tools into your workflow.
  • Are uncompromisingly service-minded towards our users and your colleagues, but able to set and achieve priorities that get projects shipped efficiently with high quality.
  • Have 5+ years relevant design experience at a tech, product-driven company.
  • Understanding of JavaScript or other front-end programming is a plus.
