About Us

Metronome is the leading usage-based billing platform built for modern software companies. With Metronome, companies can launch products faster, offer any pricing model, and streamline finance workflows without writing code.

Our platform computes millions of invoices per billing period and is scaling rapidly to accommodate new customers, saving them hours of development time and manual invoicing and enabling them to use consumption data to better serve their customers. Our customers love our product and approach, and we’re humbled to work with amazing companies like OpenAI, Databricks, and NVIDIA.

You'll be joining an experienced team that includes founders who have successfully built and sold startups before. Our founders and employees also have direct experience building and scaling teams through massive growth at companies like Dropbox, Clever, and New Relic. On the back of this experience and our success-to-date, we’ve raised over $78m from leading investors including NEA, Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, and Elad Gil. We’re also proud to have founders and executives of companies like Segment, Plaid, Looker, Gitlab, Confluent, HashiCorp, and Snowflake, as investors who have experienced the pain we're solving firsthand.

About the role

As Head of Design you’ll be working every day with our CEO and leadership team to define and set the product strategy for the company. Your role in that process is to be the ultimate voice for our users and ensure that our product is powerful, flexible, and easy to use for all of our users.

At Metronome we believe that the best leaders are comfortable operating at all levels of depth. On the one hand they are excellent at thinking through strategic business decisions, and on the other they can deeply critique individual parts of a product.

This role is geared for growth. We are heavily investing in making our design world-class, and you’ll be expected to directly create an environment where top design talent is empowered and capable to delivering amazing products. You will be expected to grow your team to match the needs of our business.


  • Partner with the CEO and Head of Product to set our product strategy
  • Directly own the quality bar for our product
  • Work with Product and Engineering to define the end-to-end product development process
  • Own and evolve our brand
  • Hire and nurture a team of amazing designers

Minimum requirements

  • You have 8+ years of experience in digital product design
  • 2-5 years of management experience
  • Your portfolio includes a proven track record of shipping design work in web applications
  • You excel at written and verbal communication and use these skills to persuade and influence stakeholders toward building innovative products that uniquely resonate with customers
  • You are a very capable first principles thinker who isn’t afraid to use existing patterns where applicable
  • You give and receive feedback well, supporting and improving the work of your colleagues as well as your own


  • Experience with Enterprise B2B or Infra SaaS products 

Metronome offers salaries that are highly competitive with other early stage Bay Area startups and significant equity compensation (we want you to feel like an owner). More importantly, we’re committed to equitable compensation practices across the board. If you’d like to learn more about our philosophy or about why we’re all billing nerds, shoot us a message. We’d love to talk!

We're an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
