Product Design Manager at Duo Security

Hi! I’m Sally. I lead Product Design and User Research here at Duo Security.

You hear about data breaches in the news all the time, right? Some recent examples include: Target, Yahoo, and the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. At Duo, our mission is to rid the world of these data breaches, and Duo’s design team plays a critical role in that mission. Why? Well, it turns out that security is an incredibly interesting design problem! Most data breaches involve some form of human error — someone gets phished via an email scam, they use weak passwords, or they’re running out-of-date software. When human behavior is involved, design can help!

Our design team is focused on questions like:

  • How can we, through our design decisions, get people to keep their software up to date?
  • How do we drive the adoption of two-factor authentication (which protects your data, even when your password is stolen)?
  • What information can we give to an IT Administrator that helps them secure their organization?
  • Why don’t people throw away the dry whiteboard markers? Why?!

Our design team is pretty new, but we’ve already had a big impact on the product and the organization itself. We’ve helped secure our customers — folks like Facebook, Etsy, and Toyota. We’re leading the definition and design of brand new, novel products. We’re also facilitating design-led workshops and teaching our colleagues about design-driven product development. Design is highly regarded at Duo, and we can’t hire fast enough to keep up with the internal demand for our team’s help!

We need a Design Manager to support this growth.

  • You want to lead us through leveling-up our product, making it more beautiful and even delightful. Delightful security software? Why the heck not?!

Does this sound like it was written for you? Excellent! Please apply and let’s explore this together.


Company Reviews

I love working at Duo for the culture and the challenges. Everyone at Duo truly cares about each other, and cares about helping our customers succeed in their mission. This, combined with the thrill of solving some of infosec's biggest problems, the right way, makes Duo an incredible place to work.

Two weeks after joining Duo, I made the decision to move to Austin to help grow our world class Engineering team. Why you ask? The culture, the people, and the mission. Duo's culture is real, not just words on a poster. It shows in how we work as a team to solve challenging problems, and in how we interact with each other and our customers every day. Duo is on a mission to make security easy and accessible for everyone, making the world a better place... how can you not love that!?
