Product Designer, New Businesses - Location Flexible

San Francisco, CA; Remote - US

Company Description

Dropbox is now a Virtual First company, which means work outside of an office will be the primary experience for all employees. Being Virtual First also means the location of our employees is targeted but flexible. If “Location Flexible” is listed in the job title of a role, the role can be located in any of the states where Dropbox is authorized to do business.** Some roles (including those which do not have “Location Flexible” in the job title), however, may have to be co-located with their teams in certain locations. Please work with your recruiter and your hiring manager to understand any location constraints of a particular role and to communicate your location preferences. **Dropbox is authorized to do business in many, but not all, states. If you are not located in or able to work from a state where Dropbox is registered, you will not be eligible for employment. Please speak with your recruiter to learn more about where Dropbox is registered.

Dropbox is one place to keep life organized and keep work moving. With more than 600 million registered users across 180 countries, we’re on a mission to design a more enlightened way of working. Dropbox is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, and has offices around the world. For more information on our mission and products, visit dropbox.com.

Team Description

Our Design team crafts delightful experiences that make people's lives easier. We're a close-knit, collaborative group, guided by a highly iterative user-centered design process. Combining research, data, and thoughtful critique, we're discovering needs and solving fundamental problems that impact work and life for millions of people around the world.

Role Description

This team is building a product for Creators that is an enabler beyond our core productivity offerings around sync and share. This team is experimenting with a new problem space and opportunity that Dropbox is well-positioned to tackle. The nature of the work on this team is 0→1, requires agility and immense customer obsession. This is a close-knit team and a high ownership environment. 
 
As one of two designers on this team, you get to define what the bounds of the problem space and the solution space for Dropbox are. You get to carve out a vision for where this product goes, as well as the iterative path for us to get there while we learn and measure along the way.

Responsibilities

  • Driving discovery and planning with a PM partner on immediate roadmaps and long term product strategy
  • Synthesizing insights and solution iterations with regular contact with customers throughout
  • Running your own design evaluations with support from research
  • Facilitating team discussions and brainstorms to drive alignment and decisions
  • Executing thorough designs accounting for relevant edge cases and technical constraints
  • Last but not the least, sweating the product we’re shipping and not just what we design

Requirements

  • 7+ years of UX-related work experience
  • Demonstrated experience leading projects from discovery through shipping/iteration.
  • Demonstrated experience with collaborating closely with cross-functional partners — researchers, product managers and engineers to ship product.
  • Deep interest in understanding customers — their lives, workflows, problems and where products and solutions might fit in
  • Excellent interaction design and visual craft skills including some experience with prototyping mobile experiences.
  • Clear, compelling presentation and communication style
  • Comfortable with travel, potentially quarterly post-COVID.

 

Dropbox is an equal opportunity employer. We are a welcoming place for everyone, and we do our best to make sure all people feel supported and connected at work. A big part of that effort is our support for members and allies of internal groups like Asians at Dropbox, BlackDropboxers, Latinx, Pridebox (LGBTQ), Vets at Dropbox, Women at Dropbox, ATX Diversity (based in Austin, Texas) and the Dropbox Empowerment Network (based in Dublin, Ireland).
