About Easy Agile

Easy Agile is an Australian founded bootstrapped start-up. We have four products built on top of Atlassian’s flagship product Jira, sold via the Atlassian Marketplace. Profitable from year 1, we are on a truly unique journey with an emphasis on work/family/community/self balance, while growing a high-performing team. Due to our extremely fortunate position, we are driven by giving back to our community and our people - enabling our people to live the lives they only dreamed of.

Our HQ is in Wollongong and we have an office in Sydney, but you can find us scattered along the coast anywhere from Brighton to Tweed Heads. We offer flexible working, so you can be based anywhere in Australia! We optimise for collaboration and connection face to face as a team each quarter.

We believe that being agile is a mindset, and that true agility unlocks a team’s potential to be happier at work, have more impact in the solutions they’re building, and be more focused on their customer’s success! That’s why our purpose is to help organisations realise the benefits of being agile. We’re proud to call over 1,900 companies our customers, including Netflix, Harvard, Amazon, Lego, Mercedes and Twitter.

About the role:
As a mid-level Product Designer at Easy Agile, you will be embedded into one of our product teams and own the end-to-end design work. You will also be an active participant in a company wide initiative to transform our stand-alone products to an interconnected product suite, with a shared design approach and a consistent, pragmatic user experience. 

What you'll do:

    • You will be the sole Product Designer for one of our products, working in a cross-functional team with a Senior Product Manager, Engineering Manager and a team of 2 Engineers.
    • Work end-to-end from validating the problem statement, running user interviews, research, competitor analysis, ideation, running workshops, refining design approaches in Figma, working with the engineering team to break this down into manageable chunks, testing and iterating. 
    • Collaborate with the design team to deliver a cohesive experience for the product suite. 
    • Work with the Atlassian Design System (ADS) to find creative design solutions.
    • Contribute to Easy Agile’s Design System to cover any Easy Agile needs that the ADS doesn’t provide for. 

About you:

    • You’re an experienced Product Designer, who has owned the end to end design work for a SaaS product or feature.
    • You thrive in a collaborative environment and have excellent communication skills that enable you to advocate for your design vision to cross-functional teams.
    • You welcome feedback with an open mind and curiosity, thoughtfully considering how to incorporate it or set it aside based on the best interests of the project and product outcomes.
    • You have at least 12 months of experience using Figma.
    • You have experience in incorporating a 3rd party’s design system into your day-to-day work.
    • You have deep user interaction design experience, preferably with complex sets of tasks and user flows.
    • You have experience designing for multi-user environment apps typically used by teams/organisations e.g. Salesforce, Miro, Canva, Office, any apps built for agile dev teams.
    • You have experience running usability testing or conducting user interviews.

We’ll be excited if you have:

    • Experience facilitating and running design workshops.
    • Experience forming and running your own research initiatives.
    • Strong written communication skills.

People over perfection
If you are excited about this role but not sure if you meet all of the criteria, please apply. Research shows women and minority groups are less likely to apply for roles where they don't meet 100% of the criteria. We value punching above our weight and people over perfection, so go ahead and apply - we'd love to hear from you.
