About the job
There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

We’re looking for a seasoned designer to own Snowflake’s Design System. The initial focus will be on the UI Design System that underpins our existing and growing product portfolio. A consistent, intentional, high quality Design System is crucial to our goal to enable every organization to be data driven.

Your work will help establish what it means to use a Snowflake UI. At the same time, you’ll drive clarity and efficiency within the organization so that we can deliver high quality products quickly. We’re looking for someone that has spent significant time working on a design system both from a process and an execution standpoint.

As the initial designer on this project you’ll identify opportunity areas, establish processes, work cross functionally, and collaborate with design leadership to scale impact. This role is a high growth role, but expect to get your hands dirty to start. The responsibilities that follow are broad and we expect candidates to have strengths in different areas. If you think you are currently capable of meeting some, but not all, of the responsibilities please consider applying anyway.
