Lead Product Designer @ Hasura

The Hasura product team is looking to hire a Lead Product Designer to help enhance the experience for our ever growing community of avid Hasura customers. We’re looking for a passionate designer to work on our flagship product, the Hasura Console, a development environment to create and manage GraphQL enabled databases.

You will be a part of a global team realizing a vision to build the next generation of application development powered by GraphQL. Hasura is focused on making data access fast, secure & scalable; so that developer teams or API consumers can immediately get productive. We want to get to a world where data delivery is just another piece of infrastructure.

We’re a globally distributed team, with offices in San Francisco & Bangalore, India.

Brief Overview:

As a Lead Product Designer your role will entail working closely with the product managers, engineers and researchers involved in building the Hasura Console. Your goal is to enhance the developer experience of the console interfaces. It is preferred that you have some prior experience with IDEs (Integrated Development Environments), and understand the principles of designing utility heavy interfaces. As the product designer you will also work with the visual design team to ensure your product interfaces meet our brand guideline requisites.

You are someone with the ability to work in both, isolation and collaborative setups. The product design team is in its fledgling stages and you are going to be one of its first members, so we need someone who can take up projects and see them through to completion with a decent amount of project management + ownership.

Hasura enjoys deep customer love from virtually every part of the world and we want to make sure we continue providing a superior, accessible and inclusive product experience to solidify our competitive advantage. As part of being a lead product designer you will also help shape the future of product design at Hasura :)

  • High levels of organisation and the ability to handle multiple stakeholder requests concurrently.
  • A team player, with a high level of empathy and the ability to mentor.
  • A penchant for usability testing and user studies.
