WHAT YOU'LL DO

Do you excel in systems thinking? Are you passionate about ensuring consistency throughout the user experience and enabling other designers to do the same? We are seeking a Senior Product Designer with strong visual design and systems thinking to be a vital part of Braze's Composition Infrastructure team.

Product Designers at Braze have the freedom to work on all aspects of the user experience, with particular strength in at least one area of user experience, or service design — user research, user flows, wireframing, diagramming, interaction design, rapid prototyping, design documentation, or motion design, to name a few examples. As a Senior Product Designer on COMPI you will drive composition unification across our Channels teams yet also support our Lead Designer with feature work.

You’ll primarily be working on defining and designing patterns within our composition experience, and enabling other Channel designers to leverage this work for consistency. You’ll also be designing high impact features within this product area in partnership with the COMPI Lead Designer and cross- functional peers.

  • Working closely with COMPI leadership on OKRs and annual planning
  • Leading design reviews, ensuring quality and consistency are at the forefront
  • Actively consulting and engaging with various teams, ensuring our composition experience is unified and best-in-class
  • Taking charge of the composition experience from a systems perspective, and partnering closely with our design system team to ensure the latest patterns and visual design language are utilized
  • Working alongside product managers, UX researchers, engineers, and designers, you'll play a central role in shaping our composition experience within both Canvas and Campaigns

  • A natural collaborator, you're adept at fostering strong relationships between marketing and product departments
  • Your decisions aren’t just aesthetically driven; they’re rooted in user insights
  • Ambiguity doesn’t deter you; instead, you see it as a canvas for innovative solutions
  • Communication comes naturally, whether it’s sketching an idea or presenting a fully-fledged design concept
  • Your attention to detail is impeccable, demonstrated through your UI designs, prototypes, and how you weave visual narratives
  • Have a standout portfolio that showcases your strong systems thinking and problem solving skill set
  • Passionate about personal growth, you're always refining your skills and pushing design boundaries
  • Experience crafting user experiences for editor tools (e.g., website builders or CMS)
  • Significant experience with any aspect of lifecycle marketing
  • Have a portfolio demonstrating the why’s of the design decision supported by user insights, data or technical limitations
