Lead Designer, Cloud

Remote

Crusoe Energy is on a mission to unlock value in stranded energy resources through the power of computation. Take a look at what we do! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rlt8k71Quqw We aim to align the long term interests of the climate with the future of global computing infrastructure. As data centers consume an exponentially growing power footprint to deliver technology to all connected devices, we are inspired by making sure that the energy meeting that demand is sourced in an environmentally responsible fashion. Crusoe co-locates mobile data centers with stranded energy resources, like flare gas and underloaded renewables, to deliver low-cost, carbon-negative distributed computing solutions. Crusoe Cloud is a managed cloud services platform powered by stranded energy that enables climate-friendly innovation in computationally intensive fields including artificial intelligence, graphics rendering and computational biology.

Crusoe is hiring a lead designer to accelerate development of our carbon-reducing cloud. Currently in private alpha, we offer high performance GPU compute at a fraction of the cost of hyperscalers, but as we move towards public beta, we need to design and build new features including user management, storage, and networking. You are an equal stakeholder in the product and will collaborate closely with the directors of product management and engineering, as well as the engineering team, to quickly iterate on these features.

This role will also help create the foundation for design at Crusoe, including our Crypto team and through any other branding/marketing materials.

Responsibilities

  • Work with our product team to build our design system from the ground up
  • Define, build, and manage assets for our console design system (e.g., content templates, icons, form design, user-interface controls, navigation models, dashboard interface)
  • Produce visual designs from concept to delivery. Facilitate the creative visual design process producing the visual language for a cohesive set of products
  • Collaborate with developers to bring your designs to life, from websites to interactive climate dashboards
  • Create wireframes, journey maps, user jobs and scenarios, task flows, and personas in support of interaction designs for hardware and/or software-based experiences
  • Contribute to and begin to lead development and enhancement of product user experience via creation of interaction models and detailed designs for new and existing product features while serving as a liaison between users and products
  • Ensures that the designs of the products allow the user to complete the desired functions in the best possible manner
  • Help influence strategic decisions across all the corners of our web presence

Requirements

  • 5+ years of experience as a designer in a creative environment.
  • End-to-end design skills (from ideation to prototyping and full production)
  • Thorough understanding of design theory (typography, color, grid, etc.)
  • Outstanding portfolio showing deep product understanding and craftspersonship, both UI and UX
  • Experience within the developer tools or B2B SaaS space is a plus, but not a requirement
  • Excellent collaboration skills across stakeholder teams including product, engineering, and marketing
  • Able to work independently in a fast-paced environment
  • Solid understanding of cross-platform design systems and technical frameworks
  • Willingness to adopt new tools and workflows (we primarily use Figma)
  • An entrepreneurial spirit with a willingness to frame and define existing/emerging opportunity spaces and success criteria often within ambiguous spaces
  • Desire to participate in user experience research and customer calls to best understand developer needs.

Benefits

  • Hybrid work schedule
  • Industry competitive pay
  • Stock options in a fast growing, well-funded technology company
  • Health insurance package options that include HDHP and PPO, vision, and dental for you and your dependents
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Paid life insurance, short-term and long-term disability
  • Teladoc
  • Pet-friendly offices
  • 401(k) with a 100% match up to 4% of salary
  • Unlimited time off
  • Cell phone reimbursement
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Subscription to the Calm app
  • NYDIG - Bitcoin Savings Plan
  • Company paid commuter benefit; $100 per month
  • Compensation will include equity and salary to be determined by the applicant’s education, experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities, as well as internal equity and alignment with market data
