Job Description

UX Design Guru


Location: Redwood City, CA


Can you be the Jony Ive for Data Visualization? Here’s an opportunity to create a lasting impact on a big industry.


Bring your UX research and design skills for making complex things appear simple and elegant.  Amaze users.  Create an unparalleled user experience with unimagined visualizations of information that is so intuitive, they’ll see it as a work of art rather than a business tool.  Design a lasting product that will be used across multiple platforms (browser, tablets, phones).


We’re building a new product and company from the ground up. Our product is a rare blend of serious back-end technology and highly-visual user interfaces. We value technology. But we value well-designed products even more. We are dying to meet you if you think you are that special UX designer that can design a product to disrupt a $10B industry.
