About The Role

We’re searching for a Director of User Experience to lead our UX Design and UX Research efforts across Crunchbase products.

This key leader will manage teams of world-class designers and researchers that not only enjoy helping our users, but also love having fun, making each other laugh, and helping one another grow to become the best they can be.

You’ll have a direct line to the executive team, which will help you shape not only our user experience but the very future of our company.

This is an exciting time to be joining Crunchbase.

We’ve recently doubled down on our core software product focus, and we’re rapidly growing its adoption across both individual buyers and enterprise teams.

You’ll be leading all our user research and product design efforts, and you will be integral to our shared success as a product development organization.

What You’ll Do:

  • Lead and mentor a team of user researchers and a team of product designers to create deep user empathy and seamless experiences for our millions of users
  • Partner closely with peers across Engineering, Product Management, and Product Marketing to build and launch features in an agile and iterative way
  • Work hand-in-hand with our CTO, CEO, and your own teams of designers & user researchers to define a future vision, ethos, and aesthetic for all of Crunchbase
  • Act as an internal champion and leader for design and UX

What We’re Looking For:

  • You’re comfortable with applying principles of information architecture to making data-centric applications delightful to use.
  • You have extensive hands-on experience (6+ years) with at least two of interaction design, visual design, and/or user research disciplines.
  • You have a strong point of view when it comes to design systems, tools, and processes as well as qualitative and quantitative research methodologies
    – but you don’t treat any of the above as dogma.
  • You’ve been successfully working in a fast-paced startup environment.
  • You’re passionate about organization building
    – developing great culture, people, and processes are how you measure your own success.
  • You have 5+ years of experience as a manager, and ideally you have managed and mentored managers before

What Crunchbase Offers:

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • Remote first policy
  • Generous Reimbursement policy for learning and development activities
  • Monthly fitness / mental health reimbursement
  • 10 weeks of fully-paid time off for new parents
  • Flexible Paid Time Off (PTO)

  • Annual carbon offset
  • Matching charity contributions for our Townhall awards
  • A team of creative, transparent entrepreneurs driven to accomplish our mission
