Senior Product/UX Designer
You’re in high demand. We get it. The best people always are.
We could tell you that you’d be on the ground floor of one of the hottest new startups in Silicon Valley. We could tell you how we’re commercializing a collaborative data experience based on our prior industry-leading work at companies like Netflix and Apple. Or we could say to you that we’re building something new and exciting, and will completely change the way millions of people worldwide work with data.
Most people might find this pretty compelling. But you’re not most people. You want more. So why us? Why this opportunity? Because this is everything you’ve ever wanted in a job.
It’s the team you’ve always wanted.
It’s working alongside some of the best & brightest minds in tech. Talented engineers who, despite being leaders in their fields, remain humble and helpful. Accomplished colleagues who can communicate clearly and effectively, and who embrace your contributions with an open mind and no ego. It’s exploring the unknown with a team of dependable, emotionally-mature colleagues who thrive in collaborative environments and are excited by what they’re doing. It’s working with people you truly enjoy working with.
It’s the work environment you’re looking for.
No, that doesn’t mean pinball machines and beer on tap. It’s the freedom to explore groundbreaking new ideas and cutting-edge technologies without first asking permission. It’s the ability to boldly experiment with the unknown, without fear of failure, because we know every failure uncovers new insights. It’s the opportunity to learn more, grow faster, and have more impact than you ever thought possible.
It’s the company culture you’ve been seeking.
It’s being proud of where you work, knowing you are part of a company with moral leaders, strong principles, and unshakeable ethics. It’s fostering a genuinely inclusive workplace, where everyone is treated with respect--and brilliant jerks are not tolerated. It’s a culture of transparency and trust, where you have access to everything and are encouraged to pursue your curiosity. It’s being trusted to make good decisions and being unafraid to take smart risks. It’s about having fun and finding meaning in what you do. It’s working at the most sensible, pragmatic place you’ve heard of.
Because it’s rare to find a meaningful and challenging role you genuinely enjoy. It’s even more rare to find that role at a company with an extraordinary team, work environment, and company culture. But finding it in a well-funded startup that’s poised for explosive growth?
That’s exceedingly rare. Like, once-in-a-lifetime rare. And that’s got to be worth a conversation at least.

Noteable was founded in 2020 by former Netflix, Amazon, and Apple technology leaders, and our team includes contributors and leaders within the Jupyter and Python communities. We are supported by Wing.VC and Costanoa Ventures, and are currently in a rapid growth phase, aiming to double our team size from 20 to 40 by mid-2022.
We understand that sometimes the best people aren’t the ones who ‘check all the boxes.’ We value individual growth, which means not knowing something isn’t as important as your ability and willingness to learn it. We understand that not all experiences are created equal, so the number of years isn't as important as what you did with them. If you answer “yes” to a majority of the skills & traits above, then you’re someone we’d love to talk with!
