Requirements for Visual Designer

  • **You’re an experienced Visual Designer **and have a portfolio of thoughtful, product-centric work to show for it.
  • **You’re a lifelong learner: **Your work’s details and nuances are important to you, and you never feel “done” learning the craft.
  • **You gravitate towards complex problems: **There’s no shortage of challenging, tangly problems to solve at Airtable. If the idea of bringing elegant visualizations to mind-boggling ambiguity has you nodding “yes” at this screen, we have some ideas about what you can work on.
  • **You like saying “we” more than “I”: **Your team will be a collaborative bunch, and you’ll be working closely with other designers (product, content, and brand), engineers, PMs, data scientists, researchers, and more. We are greater than the sum of our parts.
  • **You just go for it: **There are lots of opportunities to have a measurable impact as a self-starter at Airtable. You don’t hesitate to champion a good idea until it turns into something that works.
  • **You’re not afraid to ask a “spicy” question: **Growing our product, team, and culture means reflecting and sometimes challenging our practice and approach. We are open to adapting and growing.
  • **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.

Responsibilities for Visual Designer

  • **Create visual clarity: **Airtable’s interfaces can be information dense. You’re excited about these visualization challenges, and know how to provide hierarchy and focus when there’s a lot going on.
  • **Systematize: **Design systems are a challenge. You know how to systematize in pragmatic, high leverage ways so that the right things are consistent, the right attributes are flexible, and you’re able to provide direction and guidance at scale. 
  • **Realize our brand: **Creating a product that clearly embodies brand principles is easier said than done. You’ll work with our brand designers to help create the right sorts of alignment — sometimes literally consistent, other times complementary — and also guide our product designers do so, too. 
  • **Get the details right: **You’ll support and ship extremely high-quality features and feel a sense of ownership throughout the process. This responsibility comes with all the trappings of what it means to be a sharp designer: generating your own ideas, collaborating with teammates and stakeholders to refine them, crafting mockups and prototypes with polish. You’ll partner with engineering and understand technical constraints and how to make pragmatic tradeoffs on your designs.
