Docker is a remote first company with employees across Europe, APAC and the Americas that simplifies the lives of developers who are making world-changing apps.

We are looking for a Senior Manager, Product Design to work closely with Engineering and Product Management in discovering and launching new product capabilities within two Product lines, Verify and Share.

With millions of active developers globally and the increasing importance and challenge of shipping secure software, this is a rare opportunity to transform an industry.

The Share Product Line is where we develop and ship Docker Official Images, publisher tools, and Docker Hub. Docker Hub and our content help developers to bring their ideas to life by delivering a magical experience simplifying and accelerating the complexities of building and shipping applications.

Product Design at Docker is a fast-paced environment with lots of opportunity for those who are energized by designing for technical users. While we work closely with Product Management and Engineering to build and learn quickly, building a thriving Product Design community is critical to our success.
