Peloton is seeking a Senior Director, UI Design to to support the innovation, iteration, and optimization of our Bike, Tread, and Digital apps, as well as the development of future Peloton products.

This role sits on the Product Design & UX team, and works closely with the other roles on the team (UX Design, Product Design Ops, User Research, and UX Prototype Engineering) and their respective leaders as well as other Peloton teams including Product Management, Industrial Design, Engineering, Brand Creative, Content Production et. al.

This role is the first of its kind at Peloton. It will lead the UI Design team responsible for the visual design of Peloton’s product software platforms and features. The Senior Director, UI Design will be responsible for managing the existing team (which is currently 8 FT UI Designers) and for scaling the team through recruiting and hiring.This role will drive our visual standards, styles, elements, and systems, and ensure consistency and holism in the design of our software products.

Notably, this role and team focuses heavily on aesthetics and interaction: ensuring the look and feel of Peloton software for all Peloton Members across different platforms and screens is of the utmost quality and in line with the Peloton brand; and with special care taken to ensure usability, legibility, visual hierarchy, and accessibility. It collaborates heavily with other specialized roles that hold the baton at other stages in the process: notably Product Management (that defines the strategic roadmap, defines features, and prioritizes work) and UX (that defines functionality, user flows, edge cases and states, and generally “how features work”).

This role reports directly to the VP of Product Design & UX.

  • Evolve Peloton’s UI Design processes and tools.
  • Ensure that Peloton’s features are designed with accessibility and inclusion top of mind; and embed this approach into our design process for scale.
  • Work with VP of Product Design and UX and other Product leadership to build a 5-year vision of the UI Design team.

  • Allocate UI Design resources from your understanding on previous projects and team member skill sets and affinities.
  • Collaborate with other visual design teams at Peloton (specifically the marketing creative team) to execute on feature launches, content, and engagement campaign launches.
  • Work with Peloton’s Content and Production team at Peloton to understand content framing and thumbnail design, and ensure the way that content is shot fits aesthetically and functionally with the UI and it’s “safe” areas across platforms.
  • Work with Peloton’s Product Engineering team to improve the interplay between design and engineering execution.
  • Continuously collaborate with other Product and Design roles (UX, Prototype Engineering, Research, and Product Management) and look for ways to improve cross-team processes.
