Job Description:

Pluralsight is hiring a Senior Product Designer in South Jordan, UT.   The role is remote friendly.  Non-local team members can expect to travel to Utah about 5% annually.

Ever worked on a product where the requirements were dictated to you by stakeholders? Not at Pluralsight. We believe in Human-Centered Design, autonomous teams, and the customer breaking the tie. Which means you will be working on a cross-functional team with a product manager and dev team who all share the same focus: learning from our internal and external customers and using that knowledge to consider what problems to solve and how to solve them. This is why we look for practitioners who are experienced, good at understanding people, and are motivated by the love of what they do.

Our team is in the business of providing insights and analytics to tech leaders. We are on the cutting edge of technology creating a streaming data paradigm that will serve our learners needs.  We are looking for an experienced Senior Product Designer who is a  results-oriented design practitioner  to join our team to evolve our experiences, contributing to raising the bar on our best-in-class skills platform.

Who you are committed to being:

  • You are focused on making progress every day

  • You ask detailed and specific questions, understand nuance, and see beyond conventional wisdom

  • You care about the success of your customers and create with that context in mind at all times

  • You understand that what people say they want and what they actually want may differ

  • You are open to the best solution, regardless of its source but can lead powerfully when necessary

  • You co-create, establish, and evangelize Product Design best practices across the company

What you’ll own:

  • Preparing for and co-leading user research along with a Product Manager

  • Our team owns the front-end, data visualization, API and data pipeline pieces that create the insight and analytics for our customers

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to identify  appropriate solutions based on user experience research and synthesized data

  • Creating concepts, wireframes, and delivering high quality designs / prototypes through testing, experimentation and development

  • Iterating your designs through usability and customer preference testing testing

  • Expertly defining the information architecture, the interactions, and the visual design 

Experience you’ll need:

  • 5+ years of experience in user experience design, interaction design, and visual design

  • Mastery of user research and human-centered design best practices

  • An ability to lead with an analytical approach to testing new features and iterating and evolving the product based on data

  • Exceptional communication skills that can create buy-in for user-centered product strategy, as well as an ability to speak on a technical level and communicate clearly with engineers and other stakeholders within your team and beyond

  • A committed lifelong learner dedicated to improving how consumers consume and interact with content

  • Interpersonal skills that create successful partnerships to lead and mentor other designers in the development of their craft

  • Advocacy for the use of tools, frameworks and processes, like Directed Discovery and the Pluralsight Design System, that benefit our product teams and end users across the company

Experience that is nice to have:

  • Technical savvy with React and Typescript

  • Experience with Node.js, Spark, Scala

  • Experience writing Spark jobs in Scala

  • Experience building real-time, data streaming reports

Ellen Thompson Pluralsight
Ellen Thompson
Special Projects Leader

My 2.3 years of being a part of Pluralsight has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me both personally and professionally. I've been able to work with THE brightest and kindest people, all of whom are united together to change the world for the better. Pair this with the incredible benefits packages, extraordinary leadership team, and steady astronomical success? If you had asked me if it was possible to find a company like this ~2 years ago, I would've said no.

Shayna Cummings
Software Engineer

Shayna is passionate about advancing educational opportunities for everyone. She serves as a Director for Women Who Code in Boston, a teaching assistant for Girl Develop It and an instructor at General Assembly.

“Greater access to technical education is not only essential for empowering learners, but integral to helping our industry grow and bring in the diversity needed for businesses to evolve. Women and people from underrepresented backgrounds in tech need to be supported and empowered to grow in their roles.

Tech is changing (and has already changed) everything about our lives, and the more people involved in the creation and decision making, the better."

Isaac
Senior Content Technologist

Isaac is an author, speaker, technologist and STEM education advocate, and currently leading the Pluralsight Skills Strategy team. He is active in STEM/STEAM initiatives, and is focused on improving lives through education.

"Pluralsight’s mission is my mission. I had an experience where I realized I wanted to do something about STEM education. Not just worry about it, not complain
that, ‘someone ought to do something,’ but to actually find a career path that will allow me to make a difference. I found Pluralsight, and the rest is history.

Doing things for myself makes me happy; doing things for others makes me joyful."

Maureen Botoman
Engineering Manager

A self-taught programmer, Maureen is a strong advocate for junior devs. She was pivotal in starting Pluralsight’s summer internship program, now in its second year, and is a teaching assistant for the organization Girl Develop It.

“The commitment to being a steward of our community, both in Utah and globally, is one of my favorite things about Pluralsight. We are all so fortunate to have the opportunities that we have, and as a company, we need to come together to help other people receive the same opportunities. We empower people from all walks of life to obtain the tools and skills needed to change the world. Creating pathways for success for people to skill up and find meaningful work, whether or not they grew up with financial means, is one of the most rewarding things I have ever worked on.”

Curtin
Lead Analytics Engineer - Experienc

Curtis is a data visualization expert and Tableau Ambassador, and holds the title of 2016 Tableau Iron Viz champion.

“It’s hard for me to envision a future where my children don’t have the fundamental need for being well-versed in technology. Pluralsight is working on making that a reality in our schools. Our commitment to uplifting the lives of youth is one of the biggest reasons I came to work here.

My favorite opportunity that has stemmed from my Tableau Ambassador status is being able to teach data visualization in the MSIS program at the University of Utah. It’s really cool to be able to promote online technology education by day, and contribute in the classroom environment by night!”

Saswati Samantaray
Data Science Analyst

At the age of 25, Saswati moved from India to Utah to pursue a master’s degree in information systems.

“Coming from a culturally diverse and vibrant country like India, I have witnessed people who have access to the highest level of education, and also people with strong potential who have no access. Working for Pluralsight gives me immense pleasure because of the hope that we will be able to make a positive impact and elevate the lives of bright young people.

At Pluralsight we are a community of lifelong learners—we adapt to change and move forward. There is no greater privilege than doing the work that you actually love, and contributing to build a brighter future for society.”
