Who We Are:

Materialize is an operational data warehouse. It’s the same SQL, same workflows, same architecture as an analytical data warehouse, but with a continuous computation model instead of batch. Your data is always up to date, always consistent, and always immediately accessible, so you can build real-time automation, engaging customer experiences, and new operational data products that drive value for your business.

Our streaming-first data warehouse is purpose-built for the unique demands of operational work. The familiar cloud architecture means low admin overhead, no new skills required. And the incremental engine means the same complex batch transformation logic from analytical warehouses can be ported over to run in real time with minimal engineering effort, and without increasing costs.

About the Role:

As a Staff Product Designer at Materialize, you will own the user experience of Materialize’s web interface. Your designs will tackle a wide range of user journeys, from admin and billing to monitoring and observability. You will use your expertise in our customers, their use cases, and the technical capabilities of our underlying product to ensure that we ship solutions our users love.

This role sits within our Product organization and reports directly to our Head of Product. To be successful in this role, you will work closely and collaboratively with peers in our Product, Engineering, and Go-to-Market teams.

About You:

  • You love technology, but you also care about the people who use it (our customers!)
  • You have 10+ years of experience designing for data infrastructure or other types of data tooling
  • You have a demonstrated ability to lead large and complex design projects
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • You are based in New York and excited about coming to our office (in Astor Place) at least three days a week


  • Become an authoritative expert in your product area, allowing you to translate complex concepts and functionality into simple interfaces that our users understand and love
  • Proactively manage a portfolio of small and big projects, while balancing short-term goals against long-term vision
  • Drive solution validation for design projects by conducting research, incorporating learned insights, and documenting each step along the way
  • Share designs with the Product and Engineering teams early to facilitate quick iteration cycles
  • Improve the Product Design function and our processes to help us ship better and faster

Salary: $175,000 - 200,000/year + Equity

We understand it takes a diverse team of highly intelligent, passionate, curious, and creative people to develop the exceptional product we are building. Our dynamic team has incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity employer.
