We are looking for an experienced design leader to create and cultivate the design culture at Anthropic, a safety-focused organization at the forefront of AI research. As Design Lead you will set the overall design vision and strategy for how users interact with and experience our AI technologies and hire and manage a team to execute that vision.
We believe that large, general AI systems will have a significant impact on society, fundamentally changing how people interact with computers. This will provide many benefits to society, but because the technology can be unpredictable, unreliable and opaque, it also presents many challenges. How these systems are deployed, how they touch people’s lives, and how people interact with them are complicated problems that will require very considered design solutions. We think of design as being a partner to our more technical safety efforts.
The expected salary range for this position is $375k - $520k.
Anthropic’s compensation package consists of three elements: salary, equity, and benefits. We are committed to pay fairness and aim for these three elements collectively to be highly competitive with market rates.
Equity - On top of this position's salary (listed above), equity will be a major component of the total compensation. We aim to offer higher-than-average equity compensation for a company of our size, and communicate equity amounts at the time of offer issuance.
Benefits - Benefits we offer include:
We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science. At Anthropic we work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact — advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI — rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles. We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science. We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills.
