Posted on Tuesday, June 25, 2024
ZeroTier is a successful startup originally founded in 2015 as an Open Source project and is now backed by leading venture capital investors including Bonfire Ventures, Anorak Ventures, Grand Enterprises B.V. and First In Capital. Our mission is to directly connect the world’s devices (over 2 million in over 230 countries today) and enable a new era of decentralized computing. On Github, we have over 13,800 stars.
ZeroTierOne is a secure network overlay product that allows you to manage all of your network resources as if they were on the same LAN. It is complemented by our SaaS control platform, ZeroTier Central, which allows for creation and administration of ZeroTier networks from anywhere. The software-defined solution can be deployed in minutes from anywhere and empowers your team to create global private networks that connect your devices directly to each other, no matter where they are in the world.
The ZeroTier Product team is looking for a Product Designer to improve the end-to-end design and user-experience of our core products. Your role will primarily focus on ZeroTier Central, the website that serves as the control panel our customers use to create and manage their networks, but may also include the ZeroTier client agents, billing, and analytics tools.
Together with your team, you’ll collaborate with the go-to-market and engineering teams to design clean and intuitive user interfaces that reduce friction, simplify complex tasks, and drive engagement with our product.
Our team is distributed across the US and EU, and we use modern practices and tools to support asynchronous remote collaboration. Every team member at ZeroTier is expected to work independently and leverage shared issue tracking, documentation, and automated testing to contribute to our shared base of reliable, well-defined libraries and APIs.
Preference for this role will be shown to qualified candidates in the United States and in particular ZeroTier’s operating hub in Portland, Oregon. We encourage you to apply for this position if you feel you are a match, regardless of location.

  • Work closely with our product and engineering team to define and visualize new features, and iterate on existing ones
  • Collaborate with external brand designers, web team, and marketing to ensure a consistent end to end look and feel company-wide
  • Leverage customer feedback, product analytics, and your deep understanding of UI design to improve the usability and polish of our products
  • Apply your knowledge of best practices around accessibility and localization to help expand and support our global user base
  • Build design wireframes, assets, and “clickable” prototypes to guide our engineering team’s work on product UI


  • Demonstrated expertise in UI and interaction design for enterprise SaaS products, particularly those serving highly-technical users
  • Ability to tell stories with data, using data visualization and interactive query patterns to help users find actionable knowledge in large datasets
  • Curiosity and a willingness to learn about advanced topics in security, networking, and cloud environments, and apply that knowledge to product design
  • Experience collecting direct feedback on product usage, including interviews and product analytics, and using that knowledge to inform UI improvements and feature definition


  • 5+ years experience working independently and on small, fast-moving teams to define, build, and iterate on web/SaaS and native applications
  • Comfort working in a hybrid in-person and remote team, using the best channels and practices for different kinds of work (i.e., brainstorming, prototyping, and review)
  • Familiarity with collaborative design applications such as Figma, Google Docs, and “low-code” interactive UI tools
  • Ability to document design practices and help the engineering and go-to-market teams apply them to their work
  • We encourage candidates from non-traditional backgrounds to apply, regardless of formal education, training, and certification. We value diversity of experience and perspectives on our team and strive to maintain a culture that allows every team member to do great work, bring their best ideas forward, and align those efforts with company goals and practices.

ZeroTier develops software that automatically handles the complexities of networking across physical network boundaries, dealing with mobility and unifying cloud & edge to free customers from spending time building their projects and focus on running their business. Our network virtualization technology delivers the power of enterprise software-defined networking to every device, service, and application whether it’s located at the edge or in the cloud. It’s capable enough for large businesses with complex networking needs but easy enough that tens of thousands of regular people use it to do simple things like play games online or connect to their home PC from their mobile device.
We work to solve the hard technical problems underlying decentralized application development so you can deliver applications that offer a positive low-friction user experience while avoiding the cost, liability, and security/privacy impact of a large highly involved cloud presence.
ZeroTier was founded by Adam Ierymenko in 2015.
The company’s network virtualization software is used by millions of users in over 230 countries and territories. For more information about us please visit our website at www.zerotier.com
