We think HR software is fundamentally broken for employees and managers.
As an employee, not only do HR tools give you more work to do, but they rarely deliver real value back. The endless goals, performance reviews, surveys and learning and development blah blah blah. Honestly, just let me do my work. What's more — when you leave, *poof*. All your data is gone. No record of what you've accomplished, or the projects you've worked on.
Meanwhile as a manager, you have nothing to help. You're stuck with whatever the HR team bought because they knocked a dollar off the price. Oh, and spreadsheets. Endless spreadsheets.
This has to change. The tools we use to design and build our careers must do a better job for us.
That's where Progression comes in.
We've flipped the traditional approach to HR tech and we're starting with first principles. We believe if we build a tool that is a delight to use for employees and managers we can revolutionise the way organisations think about career and skill growth.
But the opportunity here is huge. We're now well capitalised with a healthy seed round from top-tier UK and US investors and are now building a remote team of wonderful humans to help us with our vision to turn Progression into the definitive way for anyone to track their career.
We've been around the block a few times, and know how important it is to start with some principles.
We're looking for a Senior Product Designer to help us create intuitive, beautiful and powerful products to help everyone have the career they deserve. You'll be the first full-time designer at Progression so will have huge control over and responsibility for the quality of product and UI that we ship. A lot of what we're planning doesn't have a precedent in existing products so you'll be breaking new ground. You'll also help us get the basics right and will be pragmatic with speed vs quality where needed.
As our first designer you'll also be responsible for our marketing look and feel, creating marketing assets and working closely with future marketing folks on how we express ourselves visually and verbally.
You'll report into Jonny, our CEO, and work closely with both founders and the wider product team to create world-class products and be influential in deciding how we build the wider team to support them as we grow.
Your work will demonstrate:
If you happen to have any of the following, we'd love to see!
You'll be the very first designer at Progression. That means you'll be shaping not only how we look as a business, but how we work too.
You'll have a great time if you want:
We may not be the right fit if you'd like to:
We can't compete on salary with the really big folks, but we're doing everything we can to make you feel comfortable with what you're getting in return for believing in us.
Above all, you'll be joining a small, close-knit team where you'll get access to the first stages of a tech company's life. Whether that's meeting investors, being involved in core strategy or getting to see what a CEO does, you won't find a better opportunity to learn.
We really care about hiring thoughtfully and from all backgrounds (see our pledge). Whatever your race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability, we want to hear from you.
Thats not just hollow words. We're:
If you aren't sure whether you tick all the boxes but you want to apply, please do! We'd love to meet you.
