Senior Product Designer


About Nautilus.

Nautilus is building artificial intelligence to advance the efficiency of ocean commerce. We deliver technology to help shipping companies minimize fuel consumption, maximize operational efficiency, and optimize fleet performance. By arming ship owners and operators with real-time predictive decision support, Nautilus is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and making global trade sustainable.

Ocean shipping consumes over $100 billion dollars of fuel every year, and up to 30% of it can be saved. For owner-operators, reliance on manually collected and analyzed data makes it difficult to optimize fleet performance in real-time. By providing a unified data platform that leverages machine learning, Nautilus helps its clients make better decisions to maximize the return on each ship and every voyage. For our clients, this means they drive closer collaboration, greater transparency, and stronger accountability across their global teams every day.

About You.

Nautilus Labs is looking for an experienced Product Designer who is motivated by our mission. You can expect to own impactful, cross-functional projects, contribute to product and company strategy, and champion innovative approaches to solving the most important problems for our customers.

You will partner with product managers to conduct user research and define problem statements, explore different approaches to solving problems, and design workflows and visual systems that help our customers meet their key objectives: optimizing maritime voyages for fuel consumption, profit, and fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and reporting on historical outcomes for their vessels.

Outcomes For The Role.
