ThreatQuotient UX Designer (Remote)

remote Ideally East Coast, USA 4 weeks ago
Full-time
Help lead the charge in the exciting world of cyber security! Empower customers to make critical security decisions by leveraging threat intel like: who are the bad guys, which tools they use, and which vulnerabilities they exploit.

ThreatQuotient 's mission is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations through a threat-centric platform. By integrating an organization's existing processes and technologies into a single security architecture, ThreatQuotient accelerates and simplifies investigations and collaboration within and across teams and tools. Through automation, prioritization and visualization, ThreatQuotient's solutions reduce noise and highlight top priority threats to provide greater focus and decision support for limited resources. ThreatQuotient is headquartered in Northern Virginia with international operations based out of Europe, APAC and MENA.

 

About the Role:

Words like "user friendly" and "intuitive" don't exactly come to mind when evaluating security products. "Design" isn't at the forefront of the security industry.

Our team is passionate about changing this.

We believe creating a great product starts with a deep understanding of the problems our customers are facing and ends with validating the effectiveness of our solutions.

Every company's situation is unique and there isn't one obvious way to "do security". Because of this, we often have to read between the lines to tease out requirements or inform product decisions.

If this excites you, welcome aboard... it's going to be a challenging and rewarding journey!


Note: This position has the possibility to work fully remote out of a US-based home office, but we will give preference towards candidates that are located in or near our Mount Airy, MD, or Reston, VA offices.

 

Ideal Candidate:

We are looking for someone driven, who knows how to navigate a space where requirements aren't always immediately obvious. This person knows how to ask the right questions at the right time, can drive discussions around product design, and can take the necessary steps to validate their solutions along the way. They are detail-oriented and understand what it takes to work with engineering to design and implement solutions to complex problems. They also have experience championing the value of design, work in a collaborative way, and generally strive to make others more knowledgeable about the problems we are seeking to solve.


Responsibilities:

  • Conduct customer research, document findings, and leverage that information to inform product decisions and direction
  • Participate in, and sometimes lead, stakeholder interviews and UX-oriented work sessions
  • Communicate and collaborate with teammates and customers, including formal presentations of work
  • Become a customer advocate by educating others in the company about how our users interact with our software
  • Readiness to clearly explain decisions and support them with evidence
  • Help refine requirements and create wireframes for a range of digital experiences
  • Create and maintain documents to be used throughout the design and development process

 

Required Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of full-time experience working as a UX designer (bonus points if it's something related to security or is technical by nature)
  • Experience with both interaction design as well as UX research
  • Excellent verbal, written skills, and presentation skills
  • A background designing for complex applications
  • Proficiency in design tools (we use Sketch, Abstract, Balsamiq, and InVision)
  • Ability to juggle priorities and work on multiple projects at once

About ThreatQuotient

ThreatQuotient is a great place to work if you're looking to have a tangible impact on a product. Over the last few years, we've moved from the awkward start up phase into a place with more refined workflows and processes. The team at ThreatQ feels like family, comes from around the globe (US, Europe, Australia, Middle East, etc) and you can really tell we are building something special.

Our company is split between remote employees and on site employees. There are two offices (Mt Airy, MD and Reston, VA), and all of the product team is works remote.
