Senior UX Designer


Remote job description

About Xata

We are a fully-remote team building a serverless database service. Our service offers automatic scaling, branches, zero-downtime migrations, ACID transactions, a built-in search engine, analytics, and more. These features are compounded by an excellent developer experience provided by lightweight type-safe SDKs, a CLI tool, an intuitive and powerful UI, as well as integrations with platforms like Vercel and Netlify.

  • We define products collaboratively. The innovations in our product are a result of combining and polishing ideas from a diverse and inclusive team.
  • We encourage everyone to take initiative and lead by example.
  • We dogfood our product at every opportunity.
  • We are community-driven and deeply care about the success of our users and customers.
  • We all work remotely, usually from home, and we meet in person a couple of times per year in a nice location. We have employees in Germany, Spain, Belgium, the US, Sweeden.

Having founders with management experience from Elastic, Xata is well-financed by amazing investors, including Guillermo Rauch (founder of Vercel), Shay Banon (co-founder and CEO of Elastic), Neha Narkhede (founder of Confluent), Elad Gil, Christian Bach, and Mathias Biilmann (founders of Netlify), and many others.

We care about work-life balance

Even though we are a small team and an early-stage startup, we are well-financed and with a very long runaway. This allows us to think long-term, both in terms of strategy and building a healthy company culture. We know that in order to build a lasting company, we need to think like we are in a marathon, not a sprint.

  • We don't track hours and we don't count PRs. We evaluate productivity and quality over a 3-4 months period. All roles come with 30 PTO days
  • We care about diversity in tech
  • If you come from an underrepresented background in tech, we strongly encourage you to apply. We are challenging ourselves to build a healthy culture that allows us to build innovative and successful products.
  • Our founder, Monica Sarbu, founded a non-profit organization called Tupu that helps tech companies support diversity in tech through mentorship.


In this role, you will be part of our UX team that:

  • Designs beautiful, usable, and performant user and developer experiences, which span across the product, CLI, public website, docs, etc.
  • Creates wireframes, user flows, high-fidelity mockups and working prototypes
  • Works with the rest of the team to define the product experience


  • Several years of experience in designing digital user interfaces and experiences
  • Familiarity with design systems
  • Strong proficiency in one or more UI-centric design tools (Figma, Adobe XD, Sketch, ...)

Nice to have:

  • Experience working on developer tools
  • Experience with coding, ideally in React/TypeScript
  • Knowledge of database technologies


We offer:

  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • Friendly and diverse work environment
  • Flexible schedule, work from anywhere you are productive
  • Budget for laptop + monitor
  • 30 vacation days
  • Didn't find what you were looking for?
