About the role

DeepSource is working on building tools that help developers ship good code. There are over 40 million developers globally, and all of them write and review code in some form. There’s a massive opportunity to impact how software is built from where the code is written using automation and intelligence, improving developer productivity and increasing software’s robustness.

The design team works cross-functionally building DeepSource's web applications, reporting dashboards, analyzer interfaces, marketing properties, videos, zines, memes, merchandise, etc. We care a whole lot about our design since our primary users are people who build products themselves. We built our in-house design system, Zeal, that encapsulates how we design everything at DeepSource and serves as a single source of truth for designers.

We're looking for an experienced product designer who has a few years of experience as an individual contributor or mentoring other designers and is now looking for a larger role to play at a fast-growing startup. You will have a chance to help build, coach, and mentor a fast-moving and highly skilled group of designers. We deeply care about design at DeepSource, so you will get a chance to make a real impact with your skills in a company that highly values your work.  

As a the Design Lead, you will,

  • Lead a fast-moving, quickly growing, and business-critical design team
  • Lead a team of designers working on DeepSource's Zeal design system that powers all our products and marketing assets, and solve some of the most complex design problems
  • Inspire, motivate, and lead designers across experience levels to do the best work of their career
  • Work closely with the founders and engineering team leaders to determine the design direction of the company
  • Collaborate with product and engineering teams to enable your team to translate product specs to mockups, deploy products to the production, and then collect usage data insights to improve the design iteratively.

We're looking for someone who has,

  • You've led a team of designers before at a product-focused company for at least 1 year
  • You have a strong design background, with 3+ years of experience as a product designer at tech companies building impactful products
  • You excel at motivating and inspiring people to do their best work
  • You are relentlessly customer-focused and maniacally pay attention to the details
  • You have the ability to think in systems rather than one-off tasks

Why you should join DeepSource

DeepSource continuously analyzes source code changes and finds issues categorized under security, performance, anti-patterns and bug-risks. DeepSource integrates with GitHub/GitLab and runs analysis on every commit and pull request, discovers and fixes potential issues before they make it to production.
