Snowflake started with a clear vision: develop a cloud data platform that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. Snowflake developed an innovative new product with a built-for-the-cloud architecture that combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. We are now a global, world-class organization with offices in more than a dozen countries and serving many more.
The Design team at Snowflake is crafting experiences that empower our customers to set up, transform, scale, discover, and analyze data regardless of industry or scale.
Designers at Snowflake will shepherd new initiatives from vision to reality by owning design throughout the entire product development lifecycle. We're looking for experienced designers that sweat the details to join the growing team and ship category-defining products.
