We are about to tackle some really big things and need experienced end-to-end Product Designers with the full suite of UX, UI, and visual design skills to make it happen — if this sounds like you, let's talk.

About this role

This is a senior role that will work closely with the Design, Product Management, and Engineering teams to research, understand user needs and explore design solutions to push the Karbon product to be the global leader in practice management.

You'll drive projects big and small, assess problems, take ownership, find solutions, and see things through to delivery with autonomy. You'll communicate clearly with your colleagues and lend a helping hand when needed.This is an office-based role at our new office on Pitt Street.

Some of your main responsibilities will include:

  • Design leadership — working alongside Product Managers and Tech Leads to deliver successful solutions
  • Applying your design expertise and experience to all aspects of the product design process
  • Providing design solutions that solve customer and business needs while maintaining a high-quality, premium customer experience across the product
  • Developing user stories, prototypes, design mockups, and detailed specs to communicate the design solution to the team
  • Providing constructive, detailed feedback to your sprint team
  • Being a thoughtful and passionate voice for design
  • Mentoring less experienced colleagues
  • Being the guardian of the brand experience in product — simplicity, usability, and quality should always be a part of your decision-making process
  • Discussing and debating design concepts robustly to find the best possible solutions
  • Constantly thinking about new ways to improve the efficiency of your design process while maintaining high design standards

About You

Candidates with the following qualifications and experience are encouraged to apply:

  • Extensive professional experience designing high-quality digital products
  • Top-tier UX, layout, and visual design skills — this team is responsible for end-to-end product design from concept to go-to-market, so you'll need the full suite of skills to make it happen
  • Maturity to discuss ideas critically, contribute to strategic decisions, and always be open to adopting someone else's idea if it's better than your own
  • A fascination with experimentation, testing, and analytics — if a new design doesn't achieve its aim better than the last one, then what was the point?
  • Confident writer of short-form content — words are design too

Why work at Karbon?

  • Gain global experience across the USA, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Canada and the Philippines
  • 4 weeks annual leave plus 5 extra "Karbon Days" off a year
  • Flexible working environment
  • Work with (and learn from) an experienced, high-performing team
  • Be part of a fast-growing company that firmly believes in promoting high performers from within
  • A collaborative, team-oriented culture that embraces diversity, invests in development, and provides consistent feedback
  • Generous parental leave

Karbon embraces diversity and inclusion, aligning with our values as a business. Research has shown that women and underrepresented groups are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single criteria. If you've made it this far in the job description but your past experience doesn't perfectly align, we do encourage you to still apply. You could still be the right person for the role!
