Position Summary

The goal of our Design team is to create practical, useful, and beautiful design-centric products. As the first Senior UX Designer on our team, you will collaborate with both technical and non-technical members of the Expanse community to achieve this goal.

You will help shape Expanse's future by envisioning, designing, and delivering new products and features.

We're looking for an empathetic, user-focused designer who puts users' needs in the center of all phases of design: from planning, to research, to prototyping, and user testing.

If you are a designer who shares our passion for crafting effective experiences that will help keep the world safe from malicious software and hackers, the Expanse Design team might be the place for you!
