These engineers rely on our tools every day to test and improve the safety of their vehicles, and we are in constant contact with them to ensure our UX solutions are making an impact.

- Communicate directly with our users (through Slack, weekly office hours, and in-person meetings) to understand their pain points, autonomy development workflows, and feedback about our tools from their daily usage
- Collaborate closely with PM and Eng to create and validate UX solutions for highly technical and complex engineering challenges
- Author PRDs and usability test reports each release to inform the roadmap of the products you're responsible for
- Expand and evolve our "Dragonfruit" design system
We're looking for someone who has:
- 3+ years of relevant product design experience
- Shipped software in fast-paced, technical environments
- Strong written communication skills
Nice to have:
- Experience in the autonomous vehicle industry
- Experience creating user research studies and strategy
