Our talented and motivated team is scattered across the globe with team members hailing from every continent but Antarctica. We're constantly on the lookout for great talent to join our awesome team. If you’d like to become part of the Kinsta family, just hit apply!
We are looking for a motivated and professional Product Designer to help us grow and enhance the best hosting service and site management dashboard on the market. This is an opportunity to work in a dynamically growing international company where what you do has a direct and immediate impact.

Key responsibilities:

On the service level what we create is the Kinsta experience. For the design side this means we turn business problems into deliverable solutions even if it overarches different touchpoints of our service. Working on this usually means conducting research, understanding the underlying technologies and constraints, mapping user journeys, and creating a solution that’s best and also feasible.
On the product level our core responsibility is continuously enhancing MyKinsta, our hosting management platform and a variety of internal tools. On the design side we create UI design and prototypes, write UI copy, and provide functional specifications for our designs. We work in close collaboration with the development team to ensure efficiency in delivery, but also iterate on our solutions as needed. Most of our UI is created with the help of our existing design system, so we are not necessarily looking for a graphic designer but rather a product designer with a very strong sense and a methodical approach to usability.
What we do often involves rather technical details. This should not intimidate you because we work with great engineers who are awesome at explaining technology, but you should expect that you’ll need to adopt a deep technical understanding of our industry. Still, the essence of the product design work is problem solving and if you’re eager to create a cutting edge digital product, you’ll like what you find here.

Requirements:

  • 5 years experience working as a Product Designer or UX Designer, which you can showcase with a portfolio and a thorough case study.
  • Hands-on experience working through all steps of the design thinking workflow: research, need finding, problem definition, ideation, creating UI, prototyping.
  • Strong sense and a methodical approach to usability, and handle complexity at scale.
  • Capable with the tools we use: Sketch for UI design, InVision for prototypes, Zeplin for UI handover, Miro for flows and virtual whiteboards, and non-digital methods in the war room.
  • Basic understanding of web development technologies (HTML, CSS, JS), meaning you know how a browser works and can play around with a page in the inspector.
  • Attention to detail balanced with a good sense for priorities.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills including collaborating with developers, coordinating with stakeholders, and articulating design decisions.
  • High level of Hungarian and English in speaking and writing.
  • Proactive, doer mentality, and hungry to learn.

Bonus skills:

  • Work experience in an agile environment on a digital product, especially if that’s a technologically challenging one.
  • Work experience with a complex design system.
  • Experience with WordPress on a user or even a technical level.

Benefits:

  • We offer a relaxed working environment where everyone can work in peace.
  • Everyone has a voice in the process of creating our solutions.
  • We have an amazing team with a collaborative and iterative workflow, so you never work in a vacuum as a designer.
  • This position offers a great deal of flexibility, responsibility, and opportunity for growth. We will strive to provide you with the support to deliver your best and become a better designer.
  • Work hours are flexible and we allow working from home.
