Head of Design

About Summer

Greetings and sun salutations! We're Summer, a dedicated team on a mission to make data fun, accessible, and easy to use. Collectively, we have years of experience building data infrastructure in gaming, telecom, and decentralized systems. Now we've come together to build something fresh and exciting for the world of data.

As a company, we're guided by a set of core values that keep us cool, colorful, and full of energy, even during the most sweltering design and development sessions. Our values are:

  • The harder the engineering, the more excited we get.
  • Magic happens when design and engineering are best friends
  • We make room to be creative and explore
  • People first, always.

Enough about us, let's talk about you. We're expanding our team and are looking for sun-sational individuals to collaborate and grow with. If you're hot for data and have an unquenchable thirst for design, we want to hear from you!

Working at Summer

We offer competitive compensation packages and health, dental, and vision benefits with premiums covered 100% for you and 75% for your dependents. We have unlimited time off with a minimum of 15 days per year required, so you can always load up on vitamin sea!

About the Role

As Summer’s Head of Design you will lead and help define how we design our customer facing experience and overall design team operations. We are looking for a partner to own what it looks like and how it feels to interact with Summer. You will help us embed our product values of fun, light, and humane, into the Summer experience.

Together we will be solving some very cool problems around making data exploration more accessible and how to help people become more effective at communicating with data. We believe this is such an exciting area to build truly innovative experiences and the Head of Design will have an immense impact on this.

There is no perfect combination of experience we are looking for, we understand that everyone’s skills grow differently. We are looking for someone with a more senior background. If you have experience as a principal or staff designer and you’re looking to eventually grow your management skills we would love to chat! If you have led design teams and are looking to add back more hands-on design work, we would love to chat! Overall, if the opportunity sounds fun to you and you’d like to work with a great team making working with data better, we would love to chat.

If you love data, design, or both and all this sounds fun and exciting to you, let’s chat! Send us a note at joinus@summer.io, resumes/CVs, cover letters, LinkedIn urls, portfolio urls, dribble urls, all welcome, none required. We can’t wait to hear from you!
