Staff Product Designer, HRIS

Design at Lattice

The Lattice Design team is on a mission to make work meaningful for companies across the world. We spend our days designing the tools that turn managers into leaders, employees into high-performers, and companies into the best places to work.

Lattice is the AI-powered people platform that simplifies HR operations and increases productivity. We have over 5,000 customers globally since launching in 2016. Our talent management suite helps companies improve employee development, growth, engagement and performance—offering performance reviews, engagement surveys, real-time feedback, check-ins, goal setting, career and compensation planning. We're now developing an HRIS suite to serve as the central employee record, helping companies connect their programs to employee data for a better understanding of their workforce. We're looking for a Staff Product Designer to join us in what’s next.

About the opportunity

You will help us craft the future of our HRIS suite—the central place companies use to manage their workforce. You’ll drive innovation in the category and design new capabilities that save People teams countless hours and enable them to focus on effective people programs that lead to meaningful work and greater business outcomes.

You’ll design the system of record and tool kit for companies that is purpose-built for speed, deeper analytics, and tight connection to high-impact talent programs. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a talented group of designers, engineers, and PMs, alongside Marketing, Sales and Customer Success on problems that shape how our customers manage and develop their talent.

What you will do

  • You will design new products that extend our HRIS and make complicated, time-consuming workflows easier, quicker, and more automated.
  • You will develop deep domain expertise in People Operations, Payroll, and Benefits Administration
  • You will collaborate closely with product management, engineering, user research, data science, customer success, marketing, and sales to deeply understand customer needs and solve them through elegant design

What you will bring to the table

  • You bring over 8 years of experience designing consumer and/or SaaS products
  • You have a track record of leading the design of products both from inception to release and continuous iteration to successfully meet customer needs and business goals.
  • You bring experience designing complex workflows that move across or have an impact on multiple products within a suite.
  • You bring an excellent understanding and eye for visual design principles (as evident in your work), in particular about spacing, typography, hierarchy, and usage of color to communicate states and numeric values.
  • You have a track record of designing elegant solutions that effectively leverage or innovate on existing design patterns.
  • You bring experience developing strong partnerships outside of product and engineering to deeply understand customer problems. This includes partnering with User Research, Product Marketing, Customer Success, and Sales.
  • You bring a strategic mindset that is instrumental in shaping your team’s product strategy and roadmaps
  • You can make complex concepts accessible and develop compelling narratives that inspire people to action.
  • You bring a love for design feedback - both receiving and giving. You are someone who enjoys mentoring other designers, consistently sharing your work, and finding ways to help the broader team improve their craft.

As a note, even if you don’t feel your experience covers everything listed above, we still encourage you to apply! The goal of this job posting is to establish the shape of the role, and we’re open to adjusting the leveling if we find someone who’s a great fit for that shape.

Nice to have

  • You have experience designing HR and/or financial products
  • You have experience designing systems of records
  • You have designed data-rich experiences
