High Alpha is hiring key team members for a new B2B SaaS startup in Indianapolis. This position will be with High Alpha’s latest company, which is pre-public launch. You’ll work closely with the internal High Alpha team while reporting directly to the CTO. If you’ve ever been interested in working at a company from scratch as a member of the initial team, this is it!
We are looking for an experienced product designer as our first, full-time design lead, solely focused on design for our platform, built for B2B content consumers and marketers. As Senior Product Designer, you’ll collaborate cross-functionally with our Engineering, Marketing, Sales, and leadership teams to discover, create, and launch new software. You will have the unique opportunity to lead product design and rapidly prototype new and innovative solutions, as we develop a platform to reach two audiences: our B2B content consumers and our content marketing customers. Your efforts will shape the future of the product, team, and company.
As a new High Alpha Studio company, you’ll be able to work side-by-side with High Alpha design resources for a period of time as we define, build, and launch our MVP. You'll also become a part of the High Alpha network of experienced SaaS experts and operators including a community of 25+ designers across our Studio portfolio.
While the ideal candidate has experience in the full design and delivery pipeline — from discovery & research through high-fidelity design and prototyping — we’re looking for someone with a detailed eye for modern interface and interaction design.
