Product Designer

| Austin
Apply now

You'll be responsible for creating the human experience of using our software, as well as the execution of our brand. You'll design everything from user interfaces, to marketing materials, to the occasional t-shirt.

Our users are responsible for defending their companies, and even their country, against disinformation. Their work is fast-paced and complex, and it's your job to help them discover what they need and move as quickly as possible.

Our potential customers and candidates need to understand and relate to the story of our company and the awesome work we do. It's your job to help tell these stories.

The Role:

As a Product Designer, you are a generalist who spans many design disciplines: user research, information architecture, prototyping, ideation, interaction design, and sometimes visual design. You will visit our users, listen, investigate, learn, and ideate. You know that form informs function and usability—that the surface layer doesn't exist in a vacuum.

Sometimes we're out in front, exploring brand-new problem spaces, figuring out what to build, and sometimes you're deep in the details of micro-interactions, figuring out how to build it.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Prototype with paper and Sharpies, JavaScript, After Effects, and Keynote.
  • Work with product managers, engineers, domain experts, and data scientists to develop new features and refine the New Knowledge product

About you:

  • You are the person that people can't wait to collaborate with.
  • You have empathy, not ego. You strive to understand users and fight to empower them.
  • You have a profound love of engineers and researchers. New Knowledge is a technology company. Engineers and data scientists realize our vision—and we realize theirs—and together we create software that our users love.
  • You have a highly iterative design process. You move fast, listen, and adapt. - You rapidly incorporate feedback, and prioritize collaboration. You are adept at giving and receiving critiques.
  • You are a master of tools. You move with ease across software and fidelity, depending on the task at hand. Sketch.app, hand-coding, Photoshop, Illustrator, or Keynote—and good old-fashioned pencil and paper.

Perks:

  • Competitive salary and healthcare, vision, and dental
  • A business that trusts and embraces technology
  • A leadership team that wants to do it right and is open to new ideas
  • Flexible work hours
  • Lots of available and free parking
  • Unlimited vacation (and no, that is not code for you never take a vacation, we encourage and value time off)
  • Stocked kitchen full of healthy snacks
  • Professional development opportunities

An Insider's view of New Knowledge

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is genuine and welcoming. Too many times tech companies try to contrive their culture, and tell people how they need to act. This couldn't be more different from New Knowledge. It's an environment that celebrates individuality, and welcomes new ideas.

Chelsey

Demand Generation Marketing Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

New Knowledge’s research division, NK Labs, is responsible for driving discoveries in emerging artificial intelligence and machine learning research through open-source DARPA programs — Data-Driven Discovery of Models (D3M) and Active Social Engineering Defense (ASED) — which we use internally to build tools to fight disinformation online.

Numa

Machine Learning Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I have learned how to incorporate feedback from users to make models and statistics to answer multifaceted questions about communities on social media. I have also had the chance build APIs around my models in order to make them more accessible to users.

Becky

Data Science Manager

What is your vision for the company?

To bring authenticity to the internet. Most people believe the internet is a cocktail party at scale. In reality, the conversation online is driven by hyperactive mobs, or factions as we call them, that exploit platform dynamics to manipulate the narrative.

Jonathon

CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

A slightly unhealthy obsession with a futuristic cat that guides how we proactively pounce on this problem. Integrity, obsessive pursuit. nerdiness, collaboration, accountability, and teamwork are the DNA of our company. We are relentless in our pursuit, and IONCAT leads the charge.

COO
