Job Type: Full time

Who we are:

We are Dataminr. We deliver real-time, actionable alerts derived from vast amounts of publicly available data. Our groundbreaking AI and machine learning platform cuts through the noise in an increasingly complex landscape by detecting, classifying, and determining the significance of public information. We're revolutionizing the way businesses and governments know and act on critical, relevant information to protect people, assets, and brands when every second counts.

We've grown to over 450 talented employees across six global offices and have raised $392 million in funding at a $1.6 billion valuation in our most recent investment round. Our culture promotes cross team interaction, work-life balance and the sharing of information and ideas because it enables us to do our best work and have fun.

We are a mission-driven company committed to the power of real-time information as a force for good in the world. Join us and help the world operate in real time.

Who you are:

This position is for an experienced designer looking to join a highly impactful, creative, and dynamic team.

* You are a quick study who can gain deep knowledge about the contours of our systems, our business goals, and the needs of our customers and can transform those insights into beautifully designed products.
* You have strong communication skills. You can initiate discussions, facilitate brainstorms, justify your design decisions, and thoughtfully present your solutions to stakeholders.
* You operate with a human-centered approach. Even though you have great intuition, you are constantly looking to hone your design instinct and validate your ideas through user research and feedback.

As a Senior Product Designer, you'd be joining a small, but growing team in New York focused on delivering valuable and intuitive experiences to international newsrooms, Fortune 500's, and enterprise organizations within the public sector.

What you'll do:

* Lead design projects across the entire product lifecycle. You'll gather insights, explore possibilities, shape the user experience, and follow through to development and release.
* Work with small multi-disciplinary teams. You'll partner closely with engineering and product managers to synthesize ideas and define requirements.
* Make data-driven decisions and advocate for your users. You'll tie your decisions back to your research and guide the product strategy from the user's perspective while keeping business goals and engineering constraints in mind.
* Work autonomously and act as a mentor for other designers. Take ownership of your work and effectively manage priorities. Advise junior team members throughout the design process.
* Uphold high standards for visual and interaction design. Contribute to our existing design system in a scalable way.

Desired Skills & Experience:

* At least 5 years of experience designing products for desktop and mobile, experience with information-heavy products or designing for complex systems is a plus
* Ability to quickly come up with multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and wireframes
* A portfolio that demonstrates experience designing complex user workflows for integrated systems, information architecture, graphic/visual design, usability research/analysis
* Demonstrated understanding of modern HTML & CSS, and a working knowledge of current engineering approaches to building enterprise products

Why you should work here:

We recognize and reward hard work with:

* competitive compensation package including company equity.
* paid benefits for employees and their dependents, including medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance.
* 401(k) savings plan with company matching.
* flexible spending account for out-of-pocket medical, transit, parking and dependent care expenses.

We want you to be your best, authentic self by supporting you with:

* a diverse, driven, and passionate team of coworkers who want you to succeed.
* opportunities to own and drive important critical projects.
* individual Learning and Development fund and professional training.
* generous leave and flexible hours.
