Granular is the leading software and analytics company for agriculture. We are revolutionizing one of the world's largest and most important industries by making farmers’ lives easier and making them more profitable. Our products help farmers get access to land, make more efficient use of inputs, and make better business decisions.  We currently have offices in San Francisco, CA, Champaign, IL, and Des Moines, IA. This role is located in Champaign, IL with 15% travel to San Francisco and onsite visits to our customers, our farmers. 

We are looking for the next member of our highly user user-centric design team. The Sr. Product Designer  in our Champaign office will be a key member of our small, in-house design team working on our Farm Management Software financial analytics domain across mobile, tablet and web experiences.  This is a unique opportunity to learn about farming and agricultural processes while designing solutions for an underserved customer base. You will lead strategic design projects and help shape the vision and execution of design at Granular. You will work closely with all core Granular business units: Product, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, and Data Science, and of course with our farmers. 

You will be an integral part of Granular's success, and this is a unique opportunity to accelerate your career in a fast-paced environment with a team full of passionate, committed people who are excited to transform agriculture!

What you will do:

  • Collaborate with our cross-functional product domain team, leading strategic design efforts

  • Drive user research, wireframing, interaction design and prototyping for medium to large-scale design projects

  • Develop high-fidelity mockups and assets for your web and/or mobile projects, as needed

  • Translate business problems and ideas into clear design solutions

  • Distill complex tasks and workflows into intuitive, simple experiences

  • Help build and participate in our usability testing program

  • Work with engineering on UI frameworks and pattern libraries

  • Mentor and support designers on the team, with the opportunity to manage designers as the team grows

Our ideal candidate:

  • You've shipped a b2b or b2b2c product

  • You take pride in your craft creating simple to use, elegant, compelling designs 

  • 6+ years of product design experience

  • Prototyping across platforms is a key part of your skillset 

  • Experience leading complex design projects with multiple contributors and stakeholders

  • Ability to move seamlessly between defining strategy and delivering hands-on work

  • Master at user experience design, user and usability research

  • Strong understanding of front-end/UI technologies

  • Ability to collaborate with a team across multiple time zones

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills

  • Familiarity with small business software/ business tools a plus

  • Familiarity with agriculture / farming practices a plus, but certainly not required

  • Experience balancing creative and analytical design goals


  • At Granular, perks are more than free lunches, a stocked fridge and happy hours (which we have). We value diversity and treat every employee with a high degree of autonomy and respect.

  • Have a big impact by joining a small, fast-paced and smart team. We are having fun building a great company and helping one of the most important industries in the world.

  • Upward movement.  We are growing quickly and need talent who can take on increasingly challenging and rewarding roles.

  • Employer sponsored medical, dental, vision

  • Open floor plan, dog-friendly offices
