Posted May 10

Join the team as our next Staff Product Designer for the Identity and Access Management team.

Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.

Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we're on a journey to becoming a globally antiracist company that supports diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business. We employ thousands of Twilions worldwide, and we're looking for more builders, creators, and visionaries to help fuel our growth momentum.

About the job

In this role, you’ll design capabilities that ensure that any communication sent from our platform is safe, wanted and legal we call it Consumer Trust. To do this effectively, you will help build products and services that provide for appropriate controls across products and that help ensure that we detect and prevent bad actors and unwanted communications. You’ll partner with teams throughout the company to solve complex problems involving fraud and abuse.

The ideal candidate will be an advocate for our customer-informed process, a champion and active contributor to our inclusive-by-default Design System, a partner to our UX team members in upholding our principles and standards, and a UX leader who takes a holistic, human-centered approach to design.


In this role, you’ll:

  • Be an Owner: Advance the user experience for console experiences including the Twilio Console experience and internal systems. Follow through on commitments, speak up when you see a problem, and offer to help when a team goal is at risk.
  • Wear the Customer’s Shoes: Engage with our internal and external customers to understand their needs, and design products and workflows to unlock their potential.
  • Write it Down: Define, design, review, test and specify interfaces, components, systems, frameworks and tools for developer and customer experiences. Articulate the customer problem and success metrics, and gain alignment with stakeholders on your approach to testing, learning, and iterating on a solution.
  • Draw the Owl: Navigate ambiguity through a scientific mindset - stating hypotheses, testing, learning and adapting.
  • Don’t Settle: Collaborate with other Product Designers in elevating our standards. Participate in design critiques to ensure consistency across Twilio products. Advocate for more efficient processes and higher standards across the UX organization.
  • No Shenanigans & Be Inclusive: Have strong opinions, weakly held. Remain open, transparent, and inclusive while sharing work at various stages of the process, proactively inviting diverse (and potentially contrary) inputs in your design process, and remaining humble while asking for and providing useful and constructive feedback to peers of all levels.
  • Ruthlessly Prioritize: Partner with Tech Leads and Product Managers to align on scope. Break down complex problems into manageable parts, and articulate the impact of each part.
