Product Designers at Databricks balance the creativity of a craftsperson with the analytical curiosity of a data scientist. We believe in the traditional and timeless value of great graphic design - while at the same time, we have a restless desire to get to the truth and make the best decisions possible using data. We design simple and collaborative products that have the power to delight a discriminating and highly technical audience.

  • You will conduct user research and testing to validate design concepts and improve usability
  • You will contribute to the ongoing development and refinement of our design systems
  • You will provide valuable design feedback and critique within the design team

  • A bachelor's or higher degree in Design, HCI, or a related field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • A strong portfolio of past projects demonstrating a solid design process, from inception to production

  • Can execute beautiful visual and interaction work that’s rooted in a data-driven, and well-researched UX process
  • Experience designing enterprise software, services, or other complex systems. (products in the Big Data space are a nice-to-have)
  • Coding React, SQL, CSS, and/or Python is a nice-to-have
