Careers At Performio

We’re a growing company with offices in Orange County, San Francisco, Sydney, and Melbourne. Our customers include major companies across a range of industries and brands.

Who is Performio?

Performio is a fast-growing, B2B Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company. We solve a critical problem for medium-to-large businesses around the world – automating sales commission calculations. Our customers love us for many reasons – finance loves us because we help them accurately calculate sales commissions and provide insights into sales comp data. Sales management loves us because we make it easy for them to monitor the performance of their sales teams. And sales reps love us for the increased transparency they get into what deals they’re getting paid for.

Many well-known companies like Optus and Vodafone use our software every day. We sell into a $4 billion global market and regularly beat our larger competitors because we’re the only enterprise-grade provider that’s modern and easy to use.

We are a close-knit high-energy team that genuinely enjoys working with each other and loves to make our customers happy. Our new HQ is located in a beautiful space in Newport Beach, California. We were founded in Melbourne, Australia where we also have an office. We are profitable, well-funded, and recently purchased by a US-based investor group that is helping us invest in growth.

We have a great product that customers in over 20 industries across the world use and love—including well-known brands like Johnson & Johnson and Vodafone. Founded in Australia 14 years ago, with offices in both Melbourne, Australia, and Newport Beach, California, we are on a mission to be the best ICM solution in-market by being easy to buy, fast to go live, and easy to use.

What’s the opportunity?

As our first Senior Product Designer, you will play a leading role in turning our product vision into reality. Working from home at first, you’ll join an enthusiastic, experienced Product & Engineering team in our Melbourne office. You’ll own the design throughout the product development journey, from idea through to detailed interactions and polished visuals.

While design as a discipline is new to our company, passion for our customers and a willingness to put their needs first is at the center of everything we do. We have a long history of going the extra mile to make sure our customers are happy. We’re looking for someone to join our Director of Experience Design in embedding design into our day-to-day product development practice, ensuring that all new initiatives are designed with customer needs in mind from the start.

What will I be doing?

  • Working from insight to execution. Understanding user needs and translating them into thoughtful, intuitive workflows, detailed interactions, and polished visuals.
  • Creating change in a complex system. Make well-considered design decisions, thinking through and mitigating for potential cascading impacts of recommended changes.
  • Defining our design system. Leading the definition and design of our first design system, efficiently creating and documenting reusable UI components and interaction patterns.
  • Acting as a trusted advisor. Partnering with PMs, engineers, and customer-facing teams to deeply understand and design with consideration for user needs, business goals, and technology constraints.
  • Designing holistically, delivering iteratively. Break down system-wide UI and interaction design recommendations into small intelligently planned increments for delivery.
  • Advocate for customer needs. Represent the customer in all product discussions and contribute to embedding user-centric design into our product development process.

What we’re looking for

  • Demonstrated experience and interest in designing and shipping complex digital products, preferably in a B2B or enterprise context
  • Proven ability to work from insight to execution, with a focus on interaction design
  • Deep knowledge of interaction patterns
    Experience designing, using, and evolving design systems
  • Desire to challenge the status quo and maturity to know when to compromise
  • Willingness to work at all levels of detail, from helping evolve our product strategy to writing microcopy
  • Respect for and ability to collaborate well with team members from all disciplines

Why us?

We’re fast-growing, but still small enough to have face time with the CEO. We have a genuine care for our customers and the passion to transform our product into one where experience and ease of use is a true differentiator. Led by a strong set of company values, we play to win and are incentivized to do so through our employee equity plan.

We’ve adapted well to the work from home lifestyle, and take advantage of flexible working arrangements. Our Melbourne office (when global pandemics allow for a return) is centrally located at The Commons in QV, stocked with plenty of perks, like a ping pong table and drinks and snacks.
