Senior Product Designer at

  • Anywhere

👋🏼 Thank you for your interest in our Senior Product Designer role. Here at Novu, we value transparency first and foremost. After all, we are an open-source company! This page is intended to give you a better idea of who we are, how we work, and of course, the role itself.
Application instructions are at the bottom of this page.


Novu in a nutshell:
  • What we’re building: Novu is the open-source notification infrastructure for developers.

    Our goal at Novu is to establish a new standard for notifications and product-to-user communication. See it for yourself here.

  • Why we’re building Novu:

    • How we build: Open-source is in our DNA. We build publicly and prioritize our community members and employees alike. We are not only building a community; we are living inside one, participating in the great work that so many amazing individuals do.

    • How we started: We were founded in 2021 by two customer-obsessed breadbakers. Our co-founders, Dima and Tomer aren’t new to the world of company building and b2b SaaS. They founded Novu after 150+ conversations with companies and strong market traction.

    • Who we are: Our team is highly experienced and has started and sold companies before. We also love learning from each other and are looking for people who bring a new set of experiences and backgrounds to our team.

    • Where we are: All over the world! 🇮🇱 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 🇩🇪 🇵🇹 🇸🇪 🇮🇳; Novu is fully remote and loving it. We exclusively hire in Europe, Asia, and US-East Coast time zones ~UTC-5 / UTC+7.





As our Senior Product Designer, you’ll be:
Own UX across 2 domains: Web app & Component library
  • Blocks – You will be a part of the team “Blocks” that is working on the UX of the fully functional notification center that offers a user and developer experience along with the components library out of the box. We need your strong UX/UI skills and understanding of how components work in a robust system.

  • Novu cloud – You will be also working on the Novu Cloud application along with the Lead Product Designer. You will work closely with Engineering, Product, and Sales teams to ensure that the product design strategy aligns with the business.

  • Design architecture – For the last 2 years, we prioritized velocity over consistency to move fast. Now it’s time to enhance our existing framework. You would need to review and build a system, not a solution.

  • Maintain design system – We built our first version using a set of library components that do not currently work perfectly with each other. We create our design system from scratch and need your help to maintain it.

  • Figma for designs

  • Miro for mapping ideas and collaboration

  • Loom for a-sync communication

  • Notion for documenting

  • Linear for task tracking

  • Slack for communication

  • Our code is public; check it out on GitHub

  • We actively use Novu design principles to guide us while we build solutions

You’ll be a good fit for this role if you offer:
  • Experience – Minimum 4-5 years of years of experience working in a Product Designer role within a company of any size. And understand how to work in a high-speed environment or a startup.

  • Execution – You have the passion and skills to deal with uncertainty at a high pace. You are a “Better done than perfect” person and you care about the outcome you ship.

  • Accountability – You are ready to take responsibility for the outcomes, not just the outputs of your work. You are not satisfied unless you verify the solution works in real life.

  • Customer-centric – You gain a deep understanding of the customer’s needs day-to-day, not just “before a project research.” You can take cover for your PM on the customer call.

  • Research – You can conduct qualitative and quantitative research and understand when to apply which type. You can cluster, review, and reflect on research data. You can build assumptions based on the information you have.

  • Measure success – You know how to set up goals and drive specific product metrics. You are curious to check the metrics you set up and drive improvements.

  • Collaboration – You craft solutions in close collaboration with design and engineering teams, explaining the “why” and working with them to define the “how.”

  • Feedback – You know how to give feedback to your colleagues to empower your collaborative work. You are constantly seeking feedback, and you are hungry for the information that helps you to improve. Being familiar with the framework “Non-violent Communication” would be a plus+

  • Transparency – You are actively sharing what you are doing to seek colleagues’ opinions on your work because you like to iterate to become better. You think that your team is a supercomputer, aka a collective mind that empowers you, not criticizes you.

  • Flexibility – You have your own opinion and respect others’ people boundaries. You can find a balance between pushing initiatives and taking into account teammate opinions.

    • You are a “Better done than perfect” person, and you care about the outcome you ship.

This role might not be a fit if you:
  • Thrive in bigger teams. We’re small (~25 people in the company now), so if you like more established companies, it’s not (yet) the right time. You’ll help build our company’s culture.

  • Since we’re an early-stage startup, projects, and priorities may shift.

What we offer:
  • Autonomy: You will manage your time as you see fit and own your priorities.

  • Flexibility for working hours – as a sync-first company, we keep the few meetings we have on Mondays – most of the week is for you to adapt to your personal needs.

  • Competitive salary and equity

  • Employee-friendly equity terms

  • MacBook Pro and accessories

  • Stipend to set up your home office

  • Work remotely, no commuting to the office

  • Paid co-working space/desk at an office

  • Regular team events and off-site(s)
