Your role will be to design the interactive data experience for our customers, which range from startups to Fortune 5000 enterprises.

The company's data engine, Druid, provides millisecond query speed over multi-terabyte data sets that allows users to engage in interactive analytics not possible with other technologies.

  • Maintaining documentation, interaction diagrams, and pixel-perfect design specs to ensure build quality and facilitate communication among teams

  • Developing a brand language that will unify our desktop product, mobile application, website, and printed materials

  • Pitching in wherever needed for the occasional sales deck, marketing collateral, or swag creation



Requirements:



  • Degree in HCI, Industrial design, a related field or equivalent work experience

  • 3+ years of experience designing and shipping features for cross-platform, interactive web applications

  • A love for drawing

  • Must provide a .pdf or online portfolio of experience



Extra credit:



  • Experience with usability testing

  • Link to any involvement with design communities or a personal design blog

  • Appreciation for advanced data visualizations and the works of Few, Cleveland, and Tufte

  • A passion for redefining how professionals interact with large-scale data



The company offers:



  • Competitive pay and health benefits

  • 3 weeks vacation + holidays

  • Work from home Wednesday

  • Catered lunches and office snacks

  • Exceptional teammates who work (and play) hard

  • A chance to work in a well-funded and open-minded startup building revolutionary products in a tech hot space
