Head of Design

We at n8n are building the most powerful, flexible, and open workflow automation platform for technical people out there. In order to succeed with this we need a Head of Design that gets excited by complex problems to solve and wants to be part of shaping the future of low-code workflow automation.

We launched n8n at the end of 2019 as a Source Code Available (practically Open Source) product and things have grown exponentially since then.

📈 10k people try us out for the first time each month

⭐️ With 27k stars, we are in the top 500 of the 238m projects on GitHub

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 We have a passionate and engaged community of 46k people

🌱 We were Sequoia's first seed investment in Germany, and raised $12m Series A round in 2021, led by Felicis Ventures

What you'll be doing

For us, Design is a critical function that is given the autonomy to solve user problems.

As n8n is a startup, this role is part managerial, part Individual Contributor (currently around 50/50 split, moving to more management over time). Your responsibilities include:

  • Building and leading a best-in-class Design function at n8n (currently 2 designers), creating a safe space to experiment and the rigour to deliver exceptional solutions
  • Contributing to the vision setting and strategic direction of the overall n8n product, and working closely with other product and engineering leaders to move towards common company goals
  • Be the sole product designer in one of our squads (monetization)

Requirements

  • 5+ years of relevant product design experience in technology designing solutions to user problems, using a modern hypothesis-driven approach to product design
  • Formal or informal experience managing and inspiring other designers as an empathetic design leader
  • Happy taking a complex user problem and breaking it down into parts, then structuring your approach
  • Willingness to get your hands dirty (at first you’ll spend 50% of your time as an individual contributor, although this will change over time as the function grows)
  • Growth mentality thriving in a high-paced environment such as in a start-up/early-stage scale-up
  • Ability to influence and guide the wider organization towards a cohesive, user-centric quality standard
  • Curious and love learning new stuff (super important)
  • Humble, kind, and are open to feedback (super duper important)

Bonus

  • Experience working on Developer tools, a passion for automation, or a technical background
  • Proficiency in using data and analytics
  • Extensive user research experience

 

Don't fit all the criteria but are very confident that you would be a great fit for this position. Please apply and our team will have a look at your profile!

Benefits

  • Career opportunities. We are looking to hire 'rising stars', who can grow with the company into more senior roles. We give you €1k a year to spend on courses, books, events and coaching, to support you in developing your career
  • 30 vacation days
  • Competitive salary and equity package
  • Transparency. We all know what everyone’s working on, how’s the company doing — the whole shebang
  • A passionate team. We love our product. We have regular office hackathons to see who can build the coolest thing with it
  • We're big fans of open source, and you'll get $100 per month to give to projects you care about
  • Being fair is really important to us. Equity? Of course we give you equity

This role can be done from anywhere within Europe. We can sponsor visas to Germany; for any other country, you need to have existing right to work. Our company language is English.
