Job Description

From our founding until now, our mission has remained the same: to make access to data as simple and reliable as electricity. With Fivetran, your data just arrives in your warehouse, canonical and ready to query, no engineering or maintenance required. As we watch more and more companies leverage our technology to become truly data-driven, we’re proud not only of our growth but also of the fact that we’ve grown without compromising our core values.

The Role:

We are looking for a Product Designer to join our rapidly growing Design org. You will help shape the future of the Fivetran data pipeline platform for businesses large and small. Our ideal candidate has a balance of detail-oriented design skills and customer focus. We value those that hit the ground running, leading by example on projects and collaborating well cross-functionally. You will be diving deep into the daily lives of our customers and applying that understanding to everyday product design decisions. 

As you talk with our team, your portfolio should contain case studies that demonstrate strong storytelling skills, use of effective design methodologies, and clear results of your previous work.

Fivetran has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture. We appreciate Designers who are curious, humble, think deeply, speak clearly, and thrive on collaboration and feedback. If this sounds like a good fit for you, send us a hello with links to your work and experience. On day one, this role will report to the Head of Product Design.

What you’ll do:

  • Create compelling designs for your product area, collaborating with other Designers, Product Managers, and Tech writers who are passionate about user experience.
  • Partner on requirements discussions with stakeholders and create alignment on design solutions.
  • Identify opportunities to improve the user experience and champion your ideas with your working group and the product design team. 
  • Approach designs from a systems perspective, developing patterns that get adopted by others.
  • Evolve Fivetran’s Design System with product designers, front-end engineers, and the brand design team.
  • Become an expert on the end-to-end customer experience, performing research with users of the product and internal subject matter experts.

What you’ll need:   

  • You effectively partner with others on customer research, customer validation, concept design, design systems, usability testing, and other modern design practices.
  • A strong portfolio featuring examples of your work, your design process, and the outcomes/results.
  • Entrepreneurial and self-motivated with a bias toward action – there’s tons of greenfield opportunity here, and you’ll need to lean into the ambiguity and lead projects to completion.
  • Ability to craft engaging presentations with engrossing stories that influence your peer stakeholders.
  • You are driven by a deep understanding of how products get used, concept validation, contextual inquiry, and usability testing.
  • Excitement for the chance to shape the design culture at a growing company and to inspire people with your unique perspective.

Nice to have:

  • Experience working in big data, AI, or data analytics.
  • Experience building design systems or partnering with design operations.
  • A desire to have fun while building a great product!

Benefits and Compensation:

  • 100% paid Medical, Dental, Vision and Basic Life Insurance. Benefits begin on your first day!
  • Option of Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Savings Account (FSA)
  • Generous paid time off (PTO) plus paid sick time, holidays, parental leave, and volunteer days off
  • 401k match program
  • Eligible donation match program
  • Monthly cell phone stipend
  • Work-from-home equipment reimbursement for your home office setup!
  • Professional development and training opportunities
  • Company virtual happy hours and fun team building activities
  • Commuter benefits to help with transit and parking costs


We’re honored to be valued at over $5.6 billion, but more importantly, we’re proud of our core values of Get Stuck In, Do the Right Thing, and One Team, One Dream. To learn more about Fivetran’s culture and what it’s like to be part of the team, click here and enjoy our video.

Why you should join Fivetran

Our mission is to save engineers from building in-house data pipelines, by building one automated data pipeline that everyone can use. Every single company that uses SaaS tools to run their business will eventually need to analyze the data that sits in those tools. Fivetran unlocks this data with automated connectors that converts messy, chaotic APIs into normalized, standard schemas.
