Why this role matters

We are looking for an experienced Product Designer to join our growing global design team. Design is becoming front and centre at Vonage. We're looking for someone who puts our users first and understands the product design process from user research to polished UI.


Why do API's need product designers

API's can be very complex, at Vonage we aim to make them as easy to use as possible, that's where our product designers come in. They understand our users' needs, provide simple seamless experiences that allow developers and non-developers to complete their tasks quickly and easily. We also have all sorts of dashboards, new products and tools that have complex functionality but still need to be easy to use.
