Assent Inc.

Senior Product Designer

Who We Are

Assent is the supply chain sustainability management solution for the world’s most responsible, sustainability-focused complex manufacturers. The #1 business risk for complex manufacturers is hidden. Most supply chains were never built with sustainability in mind, and most manufacturers do not have deep visibility into their supply chain risks while outsourcing the majority of their production. Shaped by regulatory experts, customers and suppliers, Assent is the foundation manufacturers need for cross-enterprise sustainability. At Assent, your work will help bring transparency, sustainability, and fairness to the global community.

We’re one of the fastest-growing technology companies – from $5 million to $50 million ARR in under five years! As the global leader in supply chain data management, we provide transparency into the supply chains of some of the world’s largest and most successful companies, including 75 percent of Fortune 500 companies. In our most recent funding round, we raised $350 Million USD in funding led by Vista Equity Partners. This funding will allow us to continue to scale with purpose, and add exceptional talent to our already remarkable team.

Job Description

Your Mission. Your Team.

As a vital member of Assent’s product design team, you will become part of our collective quest to connect our customers with the insight they need, and the tools required to mitigate their sustainability, environmental and global reputational risk. You will proudly demonstrate your unwavering drive, and curiosity to understand what makes our end-users tick. You will stop at nothing to design experiences that our customers will love, trust and ultimately promote!

You connect the dots between business needs, technological constraints and user needs with little effort.

We are a close-knit group of diverse people. We are driven. We are purposeful in everything we do, including our pursuit to connect the business to a user-centered way of thinking. Our mission is to emerge as catalysts for creative thinking, and problem solving, for our product and engineering partners, to our cross-functional partners in marketing, sales and customer service.

What You’ll Be Doing
