Job description

While people dream of a better energy future, Peak Power is building it. Founded in 2015, Peak has developed a comprehensive software platform that alleviates strain on the electricity grid and drives value to owners of clean energy assets, buildings, and electric vehicles (EVs) through electricity markets. Our Synergy software platform optimizes the operation of distributed energy resources by forecasting and predicting the behavior of electricity markets.
The Opportunity
Reporting to VP of Product, the Product Designer will be a key member of a talented, high-impact team whose goal is to build elegant, customer-centric product solutions for our customers in commercial real estate and energy storage. You will be responsible for crafting a superior user experience in a fast-paced and highly collaborative environment. You'll work closely with product managers and team of engineers to define the boundaries of design problems, seeing them from multiple perspectives and advocating for simple and impactful solutions.
We are focused on solving problems that impact energy markets both locally and around the world. We are a growth-stage clean technology company that has partnered with major companies in real estate, electricity, and smart city spaces. Working with us is to work with an exciting company and be on the cutting edge of the global transition to distributed, clean, and carbon-free energy.
Our new Product Designer will:

- Collaborate on and improve the design process, design system and other documentation that will aid in the long-term scalability of the product and design team.
- Promote Product and Design culture within the organization and beyond
- You will seek feedback from user interviews, operations, and customer success to get a holistic view while understanding user needs and problems through analytics, user interviews, secondary research, and user testing.
- You will employ Design Thinking, as well as existing visual frameworks to produce designs that are visually cohesive across the Peak product lines, with a holistic consideration for the product's future.
- Design applications and data visualization components using industry best practices and existing visual frameworks.
- Partner with Product, Engineering and Data Science team members during design and development to take broad conceptual ideas, understand user needs and lead the design process into actionable designs and prototypes.
- Work with cross-functional teams to discover, design, build, and roll out products that deliver on the Peak Power’s vision and strategy.
What you bring to Peak Power:

The experience.
- Your experience with either Energy or Sustainability industries would be an asset for us, along with your experience of working with data-rich applications
- Experience in working with a design system or creating one would be a plus
- Fluency with Tech, especially backend and data pipelines
- Bandwidth to operate across multiple product lines at the same time, while managing your time proactively and flagging priority conflicts
- Comfort to articulate and justify your design decisions to the teammates and stakeholders

The portfolio. Your portfolio demonstrates your experience and most importantly your problem-formulating and problem-solving approaches.
The drive and curiosity. You consider yourself a strategic & creative systems problem solver - able to understand a complex system, able to turn sophisticated consumer problems into simple and engaging products/features, able to think strategically about business problems. You love hearing feedback about your design as you fundamentally believe that the best design comes out of co-creation, whether directly with users or with your team.

The flexibility. You are quick to adapt when priorities shift and take feedback well. You are comfortable with ambiguity and are willing to figure things out when there’s no clear, defined path or process outlined.
