As the world moves faster, connection and agility have never been more important. We started Airtable so that people can create software that fits the unique needs of their businesses. Now, we’re doubling down on this original vision to create a future where co-workers are deeply connected and, as a result, better equipped to face their most important goals. With Airtable, companies create connected apps that unify their teams, operationalize their most valuable data, and power critical workflows in ways that are unique to how their organizations function.

We’re leveraging the power of our platform to create new solutions for users’ most critical needs, across a variety of industries. To help lead this effort, we’re looking for a product designer who’s adept at simplifying complicated logic and concepts into a clear, straightforward experience.

If these sound like puzzles you’re eager to help us solve and you’re excited about the chance to work with a crew of humble, talented, and deeply thoughtful designers, we can’t wait for you to apply.

What you'll do

  • Translate complexity into simplicity
    This is a complex problem space that needs to distill down into focused and intuitive design solutions for real people. You’ll work with both design and cross-functional partners to think holistically about to optimize architecture UX for users’ most critical workflows.
  • A very satisfying amount of design
    You’ll design and ship high-quality products and feel a sense of ownership throughout the process. You’ll drive a strong design process from beginning to end: synthesize user needs, generate ideas, collaborate with teammates and stakeholders to bring concepts to life with mockups and prototypes, and partner with engineering to deliver final polish. You’ll learn and validate directly with users and client stakeholders.
  • Shape our strategy
    Project ideas aren’t just handed off to designers in a fully defined state. Designers work with cross-functional partners to build roadmaps, goals, and success metrics focused on the most high-impact opportunities. You have a key voice, utilizing design to bring structure to the vision.
  • See Airtable through the eyes of our customers
    We have a dedicated customer base—they’re passionate about building towards very specific workflows and logic. You’ll partner across the company and have direct conversations to understand the goals and needs of users in many industries. You’ll leverage interviews and feedback sessions to inform your work.
  • Help our design team thrive
    The design culture at Airtable is such an important part of our day-to-day! You’ll contribute to team critiques, spend time in collaborative jam sessions, and continue to learn and grow in your own craft and practice. There’s always someone ready to nerd out with you on big, brain-melting ideas and the smallest of visual details. We love what we do, and make it a priority to invest in time together as a design crew.

We might be a good fit for you if...

  • You’re an experienced Product Designer
    ...and have a portfolio of thoughtful, impactful work to show for it! Bonus if you’ve worked on any SaaS, Enterprise, or zero-to-one projects.
  • You gravitate towards complex problems.
    There’s no shortage of challenging, tangly problems to solve at Airtable. If the ideas of ambiguity, brainstorming, and possibilities have you nodding “yes” at this screen, we have some ideas about what you can work on.
  • You are comfortable with experimentation.
    Some of our projects require us to move forward with our best guess and iterate based on what we have learned. You are comfortable with this mode of working and can thrive in an environment that embraces agility and the ability to pivot.
  • You get people on board.
    There are lots of opportunities to have a measurable impact as a self-starter at Airtable. You are a coalition builder and have chops in persuading cross functional stakeholders as to why a certain approach is best. Experience in consulting, and/or teaching design process is a plus.
  • You inspire your colleagues to be the best versions of themselves.
    We authentically admire and respect each other, and we think that motivates us to create great work.
