Tessian's Human Layer Security platform uses machine learning to understand human relationships and communication behavior in order to protect businesses from threats executed by people on email.

Product Designer
London, GB
Job Description / Skills Required


Tessian protects every business’s mission by securing the human layer.

Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically predicts and eliminates advanced threats on email caused by human error - like data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise and phishing attacks - with minimal disruption to employees' workflow. As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way.

Founded in 2013, Tessian is backed by renowned investors like Sequoia, Accel and Balderton and has offices in San Francisco and London.

Product at Tessian

Having found exceptional product/market fit for our category-defining Human Layer Security software platform, we’re in the midst of transitioning from 'start-up' to ‘scale-up’, and are looking for a Senior Product Designer to join our team.

Product Designers at Tessian work closely with our autonomous, cross-functional engineering teams to deliver amazing experiences for our customers. As part of the Product team, Product Designers work flexibly and are able to utilise UX, UI and Product skill sets.

We’re not a typical cybersecurity company, and we need someone who can communicate this through impactful UI and UX design. Our main design challenge is creating analytics dashboards and visualisations to communicate trends detected by Tessian in massive email datasets. You might also work on rethinking complex workflows, or designing friendly interactions for our end-users.

We’re looking for someone hands-on that values the impact design can have over perfection. We’re open to a variety of experience levels and would love to meet someone with startup or b2b SaaS experience.

How does the hiring process work?
You'll meet a number of Tessians over three rounds of video calls. We'll ask you about your portfolio and background and run some small in person design challenges. We've come up with a great way to assess candidates during our process so we won't ask you to do a take home challenge.

We'd like to meet someone who:

        Has 1+ years experience working and collaborating with engineering teams in dynamic environments
        Can showcase a strong portfolio including a strong foundation in both visual and interaction design
        Has experience closely partnering with product managers to develop the strategy and rationale for features
        Is comfortable working on complex, open ended design challenges
        Prefers building new products over optimising old ones
        Bonus - experience designing b2b web portals
        Bonus - experience designing analytics or visualisation tools

Why we think you'll love it here....

It’s important to us that all Tessians are part of the journey we’re on, so we offer equity options with every role and benchmark to provide above market rate salaries - there’s plenty more too….
