About Intercom

The way businesses talk to people online today is broken. Intercom is fixing it.
 
Intercom is the first to bring sales, marketing & customer service products to one messaging platform, helping businesses avoid the stiff, spammy status quo and have real conversations with the people that matter. Designed to feel like the messaging apps you use every day, Intercom is the only business messenger to let you talk to consumers just about anywhere: inside your app, on your website, across social media and via email.
 
Intercom invented in-app messaging in 2011, and today more than 13,000 businesses use Intercom to reach a billion people around the world. Intercom has 300 employees split between its San Francisco headquarters and its Dublin R&D office, and has raised $116M in venture funding.
 

What's The Opportunity?

We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our Growth team. Intercom's Growth Team is different. There’s no ‘growth hacking’ here: we’ve learned that sustainable growth comes from great product experiences backed by robust software systems. It’s working – Intercom has become one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in history. At Intercom, the Growth Team is an autonomous function, and we collectively report directly to the CEO. We have a large mandate and a scope that enables the team to prototype new ideas in order to create new business opportunities. Intercom is a design led company and an empowering place for designers to work. And our customers love Intercom as well: https://twitter.com/intercom/favorites.

What Will I Be Doing?

  • Collaborate closely with engineers to assess feasibility of ideas, implement your designs to spec and ship great products efficiently.
  • Sketch and prototype ideas to test viability and quickly experiment with interactions and define transitions.
  • Solve and communicate problems at low fidelity, then propose a highly-polished solution with little delay.
  • Communicate your ideas clearly to all stakeholders and manage and integrate feedback.
  • Design the fine grained details of interactions.
  • Own the success or failure of your design work and initiate design and engineering sprints to improve shipped work.

What Skills Will I Need?

  • A strong interest in business, markets, and product, and an enthusiasm in using that interest to generate ideas for growth opportunities.
  • Experience designing digital products and systems, not just websites. You have shipped products.
  • Experience designing experiences that people can access on any type of device, desktop, tablet, phone.
  • The ability to produce high-fidelity mockups of your designs (in whatever tool you’re most comfortable with: Sketch, Photoshop, etc.)
  • The ability to prototype what you design using keynote, javascript, css, html etc.
