Senior Product Designer

Sauce is looking for an incredible Senior Product Designer to scale our ‘operating system’ for Product Managers

🌏 Why do we do what we do?

Sauce is building the ‘operating system’ for Product Managers (PMs).
The PM is a high impact role in every software company, yet today, their lives are incredibly inefficient. They are relied on by customers, design, engineering, sales, marketing, finance and legal to solve their customers problems and achieve business outcomes. They often ship features but lack understanding of whether they actually solved the customers problem which is becoming even more critical as businesses look to increase the customer impact and efficiency of their teams.
To solve this, Sauce supercharges Product Managers to close the loop on achieving product outcomes and align their stakeholders faster, in one single sauce of product truth.

🚀 Why are we the team to solve this problem?

In 2022 we raised our $2.3M seed round led by Blackbird Ventures with help from Airtree Ventures. Our team led product teams in startups and high-growth companies like Atlassian, SafetyCulture and Eucalyptus. We founded a company to create something better where our team can do their best work and make an impact on customers' lives each day.

🦄 Who are we looking for in our Senior Product Designer?

We launched our beta product in Nov 2022, were featured in the Australian Financial Review and are working closely with a group of customers to build and iterate a platform that customers love and rely on to do their best work everyday. Now we’re looking for a Senior Product Designer to help build and scale our product from the ground up.
What will I be doing?
Building out the vision and design strategy of a new generation product management platform that will reshape how product teams and their stakeholders collaborate
Partnering with customers to deeply understand their needs via interviews, research and analysis
Creative freedom to own the end-to-end customer journey and design strategy, from first-time user through to continuous loops that re-engage PMs
Working with engineers and introducing design best practices and ways of working
Formulating our design system with potential to re-envision brand UI
What experience do I need?
You’ll have deep knowledge of design best practices and patterns, and proficiency with Figma
You’re able to deeply understand user personas and what they’re trying to achieve (JTBD), then translate this into customer journeys and solutions
You’re passionate about customer experience and motivated to transform an important industry
You’re self-driven, detail-oriented and have a ‘think big and move fast’ mindset
Bonus: experience designing and/or building side projects or startups
Includes competitive salary, meaningful equity and the opportunity to be an early member of an organisation with tremendous potential in an untapped market.

What are our values?

❤️ Customer obsession. We’re passionate about helping our customers become radically better. Our customers give us energy to do what we do everyday.
🧠 Think 11x. We’re here to create something incredible and transform an industry. We think big and be bold in everything that we do.
🔥 Ownership. Our team are owners, we think long-term about the impact we can have on the world and take initiative when we see something that can be improved.
🎉 Grow together. We’re here to help each other become the best we can be, and we want to have fun doing it! This includes team events and Friday drinks.

💬 Still need some convincing.. Hear what our world-class investors say?

Rick Baker, Partner at Blackbird Ventures: “Software is eating the world and building great software relies on great product managers. Having spent their careers searching for the very product they are building, the Sauce founders understand the pivotal role product managers play. Their experience gives them an unfair advantage to create a platform that supercharges teams in the same way Atlassian and Dovetail have done.”
James Cameron, Partner at Airtree Ventures: "Product managers are the lynchpin in any modern technology business, but ironically the products they use have not kept pace with software tools used in other parts of the organisation. There's a wide open space for a suite of PM tools that are collaborative, intuitive and focused on business outcomes, not just endless feature roadmaps - and this is what Sauce is building.”
