About the role
As a Sr. Product Design Manager, Core at Miro, you would be responsible for crafting the experience of an integral part of the product — the board itself with a strong emphasis on different ways of representing and sharing information within Miro, as well as building the design team and ensuring the strong cross-functional partnership to deliver excellence at scale.
The Sr. Product Design Manager at Miro is a strategic leader with a stellar craftsmanship-orientation and well-developed taste, paired with the eye for business. To be successful in this role, you should be keen to operate on the different levels of abstraction from discussing the mental and conceptual models, clarifying the information hierarchy and architecture to supervising the pixel-perfected UI, gravitating towards pairing usability with aesthetics. It's not expected from you to deliver the screen design on your own, yet it's essential to support your team's thinking and execution through constructive and encouraging feedback, with an ability to roll-out your sleeves if needed and lead by example.
We expect you as a leader will nurture an inclusive, welcoming, and physiologically safe environment for your team to explore uncertain spaces, come up with bold ideas and co-create world-class experiences by listening actively, role-modeling the culture, and leaning towards open conversations.
Each role at Miro is based at one of our physical hubs and we look for talent that want to be part of these local, collaborative communities. Mironeers work in a hybrid model, with a 3 days a week in office culture as our baseline.
