At LeanDNA we have a unique opportunity to revolutionize the manufacturing supply-chain process for factories with predictive analytics and prescriptive AI. Our customers include many of the world’s leaders across aerospace, industrial, medical device manufacturing and more. NOW is the time to be at LeanDNA. We are small, but growing fast – and raised $15 million in funding this December! Did we mention we’re on Built In Austin’s 2020 Best Small Places to work!

We are looking for Product Designers at all levels. 

As a Product Designer, you will play a critical role as we build a product that moves users away from the outdated and manual processes that exist in factories today (spreadsheets, email, BI tools, etc.) and into the the future of intuitive purpose-built, AI-driven software. You’ll report to our Head of Product Design on a growing team, working side-by-side with Product and Engineering to design the future of our tool and create meaningful product experiences. 

We value highly collaborative, supportive and inclusive environments. Design plays a major role in LeanDNA’s success. Small Team = Big Impact. 

What you’ll do:
  • Advocate for our users to ensure we’re building the right solutions to their daily challenges, and focus on the top 20% of problems that will solve for 80% of our users

  • Conduct user research and synthesize findings through interviews and observation (online plus onsite travel) to understand their journey and guide product decisions

  • Work closely with product management to translate use cases from product requirements into intuitive designs

  • Brainstorm and ideate on new product concepts

  • Iterate through wireframes and create workflow driven designs for key personas, to cleverly simplify complex scenarios

  • Validate and test design flows with users and internal stakeholders

  • Measure and analyze user behavior (in Pendo)

  • Polish everything off with great visual design

  • Participate in a UI refresh, including the development of a new Design Language System

  • Collaborate with engineering for hand-off and implementation of design requirements – adapt designs to what’s technically feasible, knowing when to push back

  • Think strategically and design for the future, ensure designs are aligned with the product vision and business goals

An ideal candidate will provide a design portfolio or samples that represent thoughtful problem solving for complex workflows. Not required, but a plus: past work with data visualization and enterprise application design (at-scale.)

Tools we use:
  • Whiteboards for brainstorming

  • Pen + Paper (or digital) for wireframing 

  • Figma for Hi-Fi, prototypes, and handoff

  • Pendo for user analytics & guides

  • Knowledge of HTML/CSS (to work with engineering)

  • Google Suite, JIRA and Slack 

Qualities we embrace:
  • Humility with strong opinions, loosely held

  • Empathy and compassion for coworkers and our users

  • Curiosity and an eagerness to learn

  • Willingness to jump in and collaborate

  • Clear communication to effectively present ideas internally and to customers

Wait, there’s more! We offer:
  • Career growth – we’re a growing company and you can grow with us

  • A fun, engaging culture where creativity, integrity and employee satisfaction are truly valued

  • Competitive salary

  • Stock options – be a shareholder in the company

  • Generous Paid Time Off, plus 13 company paid holidays

  • Health benefits – medical, dental, vision, STD and EAP

  • 401k program

  • Company outings and internal celebrations

  • A task or process without ownership? Own it!

Due to the nature of our business, we only accept U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents.

An Insider's view of LeanDNA

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Management puts trust into each employee’s contribution and competence here, and that shows in our laid-back and energetic office vibe. We also have an open floor plan that encourages collaboration, plus couches and bean bag chairs. So you can find the right space at the right time without feeling like you're being micromanaged.


Client Success Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We’re helping manufacturers get their factories off of spreadsheets and into a purpose-built platform that provides them with daily actionable insights. It's fulfilling work knowing that we’re giving these teams hours back in their day to focus on more rewarding work.


Enterprise Account Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned so much about supply chain and the struggles and motivators of leaders and buying teams at companies we work with—the factories that build our cars, planes, and the machinery that powers our production systems. We're lucky to be able to help these professionals thrive in their careers and feel more fulfilled in their day-to-day work.


Campaign Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Productive, collaborative, and constantly moving! My day begins with a team huddle to decide priorities and goals for the day. I spend most of my time working with prospects, clients, and our internal team to solve problems when they arise, so there is never a dull moment. There's a lot of work to do and we have a great team working on it together!
