About the team
All user actions (creating objects, drawing, or organizing and interacting with content) on and around Miro boards are being designed and developed by the whiteboard experience team in the Core product stream. This stream is foundational for Miro and directly impacts each user on our platform.
Next to board content our cross-functional team also creates the tools and interactions around the board, so users can find and manage content and projects, enable users to share and collaborate in real time, and use 3rd party apps or integrate board content with other workflows.
And next to doing so on desktop devices, we also design the Miro experience on smartphones, tablets, interactive meeting room displays, and digital whiteboards, so Miro users can collaborate from anywhere.
About the role
Miro has turned from an online whiteboard into a large-scale collaboration platform that includes millions of users and their accounts. As a Senior Product Designer for our Design Platform team you help us scale and mature our Miro-wide design system.
You will work closely with product managers, engineers, and designers to create and align components and create supporting guidelines in our design system and supporting libraries. You'll lead governance, supported by a contribution model for product teams that you'll help develop and implement. With the support of our accessibility team, you'll ensure that accessibility becomes part of everything we build.
This role requires a systematic approach to solution design, combined with strong product design skills, a strong sense of aesthetic, a passion for complex problem solving, and outstanding interpersonal skills.
Designers participate in all steps of the value creation process: observing users and usage, defining problems and points of friction, exploring the potential solutions, testing both assumptions and solutions, then launching it, followed by measuring success.
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.

At Miro, we strive to create and foster an environment of belonging and collaboration across cultural differences. Miro’s mission — Empower teams to create the next big thing — is how we think about our product, people, and culture. We believe that creating big things requires diverse and inclusive teams.
