About Rippling
Rippling gives businesses one place to run HR, IT, and Finance. It brings together all of the workforce systems that are normally scattered across a company, like payroll, expenses, benefits, and computers. For the first time ever, you can manage and automate every part of the employee lifecycle in a single system.
Take onboarding, for example. With Rippling, you can hire a new employee anywhere in the world and set up their payroll, corporate card, computer, benefits, and even third-party apps like Slack and Microsoft 365—all within 90 seconds.
Based in San Francisco, CA, Rippling has raised $1.2B from the world’s top investors—including Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, Sequoia, Greenoaks, and Bedrock—and was named one of America's best startup employers by Forbes.
About the role

Every year, employers and employees spend over $5 trillion on benefits globally. From health insurance to saving for retirement, these benefits products guide families through some of the most important and impactful decisions in life. Despite the significance of these products and the dollars spent, the experience is still painfully antiquated, expensive, and confusing.

Rippling is building the first modern multi-sided marketplace that seamlessly connects brokers, employers, and employees with any benefit—our platform powers the discovery, purchase, and use of benefits products worldwide. Our benefits vertical includes our Benefits Platform (recommendations, payments, and our benefits eligibility engine), our rapidly growing Benefits Marketplace of over 100 partners, and our natively-built Rippling Benefits Products.

Design plays an essential role in ensuring the product is intuitive and efficient, helping free up smart people to work on hard problems for their organizations rather than the busy work that often comes with their jobs. We hold design to a higher standard than others in the industry, and it’s an important differentiator for us. The user experience is essential in building trust with our customers so they can feel confident that important aspects of their business run without fail for their employees. As designers, you’re responsible for creating these experiences that solve real everyday problems for employees.

We’re looking for a senior product designer who is passionate about helping businesses and their employees succeed in their missions by helping them run more effectively.

  • Partner closely with our user research team, collaborate and support UX research projects, and use research findings in design work

  • Understand the array of technical constraints and capabilities, user goals, and business requirements that shape a product.
  • Work with Engineering to ensure quality implementation and product launches.
  • Work closely with designers on your team to develop and expand the design system.
What you will need
  • 6+ years of professional work experience in an individual contributor role on a Product Design team
