Product Designer, Payroll

Gusto - Denver, CO

We’re looking for a hungry, talented Product Designer to help develop Gusto’s core product area - a payroll platform that enables small business owners to pay, take care of, and reward their teams. Gusto Payroll is used by every single one of our 100k+ customers and responsible for the bulk of our revenue. We are off to a great start with over 1% of the US market, but there’s so much room to improve as we reimagine payroll and paydays for every small and medium sized business. 

As part of Gusto’s Payroll Design Team, you’ll drive initiatives that aim to simplify the way employees get paid for their hard work. You’ll work closely with a talented team to create products that our customers will love and you’ll set a new bar for the industry. Our ideal candidate has strong UX design experience working on complex systems and an entrepreneurial spirit. If you have a passion for building impactful products and think there’s a better way to get paid than what’s currently out there, then let’s talk.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Deeply understand and solve complex problems to give our customers peace of mind
  • Design simple, easy-to-use flows and experiences that delight our users
  • Partner with PMs, engineers, UX researchers, and copywriters across the company to oversee user experience for products and features from conception to launch
  • Contribute to product strategy and roadmaps through customer research and design explorations
  • Organize and run cross-team collaboration events and workshops
  • Bring empathy, enthusiasm, and intentionality to every interaction

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in software product design for a complex product
  • An excellent communicator and influencer who can work well with various groups and levels of the organization
  • Have shipped and iterated on consumer experiences
  • Have owned product design end-to-end for multiple successful products at scale
  • Passion for Gusto’s mission and the impact we can have on the world
  • Genuine empathy for small business owners and employees and a deep desire to improve their lives
  • Bonus: experience working in a startup
