Product Design Manager
Duo’s mission is to make security simple for everyone, and our design team plays a critical role in that mission. Why? Well, it turns out that security is an incredibly interesting design problem! Most data breaches involve some form of human error — someone gets phished via an email scam, they use weak passwords, or they're running out-of-date software. When human behavior is involved, design can help!
Our roots and values were crafted in the Midwest. We believe in enabling and empowering people to follow their passions inside and outside of the office. Collaboration is our standard operating practice, and we actively seek to reduce barriers to brilliance.
Our team is our secret weapon. We run the spectrum from artists to analysts, calm to high energy, and bring together a diversity of skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to solve what we consider to be the world's most pressing geopolitical challenge — transforming the security industry as we know it.
Together we build solutions that are easy, effective, trustworthy, and enduring. And that’s why we are the most loved and trusted company in security.
Our design team is focused on questions like:
- How can we, through our design decisions, get people to keep their software up to date?
- How do we drive the adoption of multi-factor authentication?
- How do we design a system that allows IT Administrators to easily deploy, monitor, and evolve their Duo integrations?
- Why don't people throw away the dry whiteboard markers? Why?
Product design at Duo is continuing to grow in size and influence. We help secure our customers — folks like Facebook, NASA, and Toyota. We're leading the definition and design of brand new products as well as product evolution efforts. We facilitate design-led workshops and teaching our colleagues about design-driven product development. Design is highly regarded at Duo, and we can't hire fast enough to keep up with the internal demand for our team's help!
