Reinventing The Enterprise

At CA Design, our vision is to do for enterprise software what Charles Eames did for the chair,

or Dieter Rams did for clocks and radios. The enterprise space is ripe for reinvention, and we're

investing heavily to be at the forefront in showing the world what's possible.

We're looking for a Principal Visual Designer to help lead this transformation as part of CA

Technologies' new Design Center in Santa Clara, CA. The Design Center is both a strategic

practice as well as collaborative space, created to foster design excellence, leadership, and

innovation across the company.

About this Role

The ideal candidate is an experienced design maven who will lead and craft engaging, beautiful

visual experiences across products, strategic initiatives, and brand / visual storytelling.

They will play a critical, hands-on role in our mission by establishing visual design excellence

across a variety of key, important areas. From helping us define a new look and feel for our

products to expressing how CA Design might show up at SXSW, this is someone who knows

what good, beautiful design is – and how to deliver it – regardless of what form it takes.

This is a rare opportunity to inspire and influence everyone inside (and outside) a $4B global

software company. Our products are used by everyone from the world's top consumer brands to

industry leaders in technology, finance and government institutions.

What We're Looking For

Candidates will be considered on three core criteria:

Work. Given the ambitiousness of our goal, a solid, beautiful portfolio that showcases a keen

sense of problem solving and modern design taste is paramount. If your work looks + feels like it

could belong in the Most Viewed shots on Dribbble — let's talk.

Experience. This is a leadership role with great visibility and impact, so a minimum of 6-8 years

of hands-on experience spanning UX / UI and brand / storytelling is desired. In addition, the

ideal candidate will have collaborated across diverse functions, led creative / design sessions,

mentored others, and presented to senior leadership.

Cultural fit. A positive, team-oriented attitude with the desire to do great work, collaborate

across disciplines at all levels, and teach / share knowledge. This person will deeply influence

the success and trajectory of the org, so a desire to partner and help everyone succeed is
