The web console is the last mile of Oxide’s vision: delivering the complexities of cloud infrastructure with a beautiful and functional interface that delights our customers.

As a Product Designer working on the web console, you will:

  • Collaborate with a tight-knit team of designers and engineers to build a modern and delightful web interface to the Oxide platform.
  • Establish Oxide's design DNA with a high level of autonomy as the second person on the design team. We trust the expertise of the people we hire.
  • Translate complex systems into intuitive user experiences through user flows, designs, and prototypes.
  • Understand customer use cases and help define the Oxide product. Decisions about the console have consequences all the way down the stack.
  • Understand how customers are using the Oxide platform and make their work more intuitive and efficient.
  • Share ownership of the console UI and design system; scaling it by contributing to components, UI patterns, and documentation.
  • Help tell the story of our product by capturing user stories for use in demos and marketing.

You will thrive in this role if you:

  • Have experience finding simple, elegant solutions to complex problems, e.g., control panels, cloud services, SaaS.
  • Can immerse yourself in unfamiliar topics and understand technical concepts throughout the stack sufficiently well to make informed UX decisions.
  • Have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Have a good working knowledge of best practices and techniques around user-centered design and prototyping.

If you don’t meet 100% of these qualifications you should still seriously consider applying! We all come from different backgrounds with different skills.

  • Our urgency means that we are not above the judicious short-cut.
  • Our versatility is reflected in our greatest strength: the breadth of our team.
  • Our transparency can be seen in our consensus-driven RFD process.
  • Our responsibility means that we both lead and follow: we have our own domains, but we also help others on their parts.
  • Our curiosity shows in our insatiable desire to learn – and our empathy in our love of teaching others.
  • Our humor is a big part of our daily lives: we are inveterate wise-crackers whose video meetings spill into simultaneous text chat.

Our values also manifest themselves in our benefits:

  • Everyone makes $185,657, regardless of location.
  • We offer the best health insurance we could find: medical PPO plan, dental, and vision that are 100% covered for both employees and dependents.
  • We are very supportive of remote work. About half of our team is outside of the San Francisco Bay Area; our only requirement is working hours with a significant overlap with Pacific Time.
  • Our families and lives outside of our jobs are very important to us; our schedules are flexible to reflect and support that.
