GitHub is looking for a Manager, Product Design to join our Product Design organization. You’ll join our growing team of design leaders and help shape our products, people, and process. Our design leaders navigate their teams through complex situations, and make sure we’re solving the right problems with the best solutions. We’re about 25 people in the Product Design organization, and our team is responsible for designing all of GitHub’s product capabilities, the workflows that make up the user experience, as well as design operations and design systems.
We don’t believe in throwing designs over the wall, we collaborate together with engineers, data scientists, and product managers to build great experiences for our users. Product Designers at GitHub are encouraged to code when it makes sense to--from simple HTML & CSS prototypes, to collaborating on production code in Ruby on Rails and React.js applications. Everyone uses Git and GitHub in their workflow, including our leadership team. We write documentation in Markdown, open issues and pull requests to share information for feedback, and sometimes write scripts to automate our processes. Working this way means we get to use the same tools as our users and the people we manage.
GitHub is the developer company. Over 31 million people use GitHub to build amazing things together across 100 million repositories. We make it easier for developers to be developers: to work together, to solve challenging problems, to create the world’s most important technologies. We foster a collaborative community that can come together—as individuals and in teams—to create the future of software and make a difference in the world.
Collaboration: We believe the best work is done together.
Empathy: We believe in putting people first.
Quality: We believe in setting the standard for excellence.
Positive Impact: We believe in making the world a better place through our work.
Shipping: We believe in creating things for the people using them.
At GitHub, we constantly strive to create an environment that allows our employees (Hubbers) to do the best work of their lives.
