Datafold exists to make working with data more enjoyable and productive.

We are all about empowering data and analytics engineers. We find the most tedious, error-prone, and repetitive tasks and create tools to automate them. We make the world better by giving superpowers to data professionals who solve hard problems in various domains with data.

We are fully remote and a highly technical team with deep expertise in the data domain. To date, Datafold raised $22M from top-tier investors, including YCombinator, NEA & Amplify Partners.

Now is a unique time to join our fully remote team: with solid momentum behind, there is yet so much ahead with an opportunity for every team member to shape our product, business, and culture.

Our major challenge in the UX and design is how to simplify the incredibly complex data ecosystems. For example, helping our users discover the needed dataset among 10,000+ that exist in their organization, or tracing the origins of particular data fields to ensure confirm quality. To solve these problems, we utilize advanced data visualizations and creatively adopt effective design patterns.

We are looking for an experienced design partner who will lead the user experience research, establish the design principles & guidelines to make our users work a delightful experience.

What you will do

  • Design delightful and effective user experiences
  • Develop deep empathy for our customers and use research to inform design decisions
  • Partner closely with founders – CEO (Product) and CTO (Engineering) to define the product direction
  • Collaborate with Engineering, Customer Success & Marketing to implement the best product experience
  • Influence our brand identity

About you

  • You love tackling ambiguous, messy problems and simplifying complexity
  • You appreciate great tools and have an eye for awesome UX
  • You have experience in designing tools in the creativity, development or data domains
  • Are comfortable working in a remote, collaborative environment
  • Are opinionated yet humble and believe in making evidence-based (driven by analytics & user feedback) decisions
We are obsessed with productivity and are constantly on the look for the best tool for each problem (while keeping the number of tools to the minimum). So far some of the tooling choices we've made:

Figma over Adobe
Linear over Jira
Notion over Confluence
Slack over everything else :)
