The future of work means a growing impact from artificial intelligence, the automation of jobs, and changing models of what work looks like. At Plum, we’re preparing enterprise organizations for the biggest disruption to the workforce since the industrial revolution by quantifying people’s innate strengths and matching them to jobs where they thrive. We are a Waterloo-based SaaS company of 22 people (in the process of doubling in size!) that automates advanced Industrial/Organizational Psychology to provide organizations with the talent data they need to prepare for the future of work.

We are looking for a UX Designer to join our team. Reporting to the Head of Design, you will lead efforts to create new and better experiences for Plum’s growing roster of customers.

From ideation to development to release, you’ll work with the Product, Design, Marketing, and Software Development teams to deliver products that are changing the landscape in Talent Management. We know, Talent Management isn’t as sexy as the latest AI photo app that puts mustaches on everyone, but it is a space that has no real tools yet. You’ll help build a new set of applications the business world desperately needs.
