At Airtable, we’re giving everyone the ability to create database-powered apps by distilling complex technologies into elegant interfaces. We’re a growing team dedicated to design and product excellence, and are looking for a multifaceted designer to join us.
As a horizontal tool, Airtable is used by everyone from Hollywood film producers to cattle ranchers, posing uniquely challenging design problems. Instead of designing features for narrow use cases, you’ll invent flexible building blocks that people can use in workflows of their own creation. These concepts include, for instance, linking between different database tables, or creating new views to present your data in the clearest possible way. Our goal is to make these database concepts feel obvious and inevitable.
We don’t think of ourselves as a mobile-first company, but rather one that fluidly adapts our core service to the unique constraints of each device. You’ll completely rethink every feature and interaction to best suit each form factor. On touch devices, this often means paving new design ground, as the existing landscape of structured productivity apps are severely lacking — try using a spreadsheet on a smartphone and you’ll see see what we mean.
You’ll also be responsible for driving visual design across product and marketing, helping us build a clean, consistent brand identity that’s rich in character and still highly functional.
We’re a quickly growing team and your impact on our product will never be greater. With your help, we can invent new design paradigms that will change how people organize their world.
