    Job #1514792659

  • At Palo Alto Networks® everything starts and ends with our mission:

    Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.

    We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren't easy goals to accomplish - but we're not here for easy. We're here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we're looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.

    As the lead designer for the consumer mobile app, you will be responsible for designing the way in which our customers experience our brand everyday. Digital security can be intimidating and hard to understand for most folks. You will help change that, giving them the tools they need to feel secure, informed and empowered. You'll be involved in every step of the product development process, from understanding user needs and motivations, to brainstorming the next product opportunity, to getting pixels perfect leading up to launch. As a T-shaped designer, you are an expert in at least one area of design, but can handle a breadth of tasks, from experience design, to interaction design, to visual design, to motion graphics. You've built a complete toolkit, and you're ready to step into the spotlight and take the lead.

    Your Impact

    • Own app design end-to-end, from architecture, to design system, to visual design

    • Build wireframes and prototypes

    • Design systems that make simple, delightful experiences

    • Work with product managers to define new products and features

    • Identify future opportunities, working as a thought partner to product and engineering

    • Partner with UX research to understand the needs and motivations of our users

    • Collaborate with engineers to get the app just right

    • Ship, measure and improve designs based on quantitative and qualitative feedback

    • Lead and mentor junior designers

    • Help build a new design culture and establish team practices and tools

    • 7+ years of experience designing and shipping consumer mobile apps, both Android and iOS

    • Demonstrated track record of leading projects to successful outcomes

    • Experience with human-centered design or design thinking methodologies

    • Highly proficient with design tools (Figma, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)

    • Excellence in design craft; a great design eye

    • Ability to work with a low-ego, highly collaborative, cross-functional team

    The consumer products team is a startup inside of Palo Alto Networks, and we're building our first product. We've attracted top-shelf talent from Google, Essential and IDEO with experience shipping world-class consumer products and services. You'll be one of the first internal design hires, so you'll have the opportunity to wear many hats, explore new skills, build culture and practice and have a front seat to our formative product decisions. You will work side-by-side with UX & industrial designers, UX researchers, the product management team and app developers.
