​​About Knowde

Knowde is a global software company digitally transforming the $5 trillion chemical industry by solving the root problem holding the industry back: organizing and digitizing product data. Knowde provides touchless product master data and a suite of purpose-built, integrated tools to accelerate digital transformation, helping Chemical Industry suppliers and distributors unleash the hidden power of their product information and get it into the hands of the people who drive value — sales, regulatory, supply chain and, of course, their customers. More than 8,000 of the world's largest suppliers and distributors use Knowde to accelerate their digital transformation and drive business growth.

We’ve raised over $100M from the world’s leading investors, including Sequoia Capital and Coatue, to realize our vision.

Come Join Us!

We're looking for an immensely talented Lead Product Designer who loves designing highly transactional systems that drive business forward. Every product you see, taste, touch or smell is made possible through chemistry and our mission is to accelerate communication and collaboration between the visionaries creating tomorrow's products and the brilliant chemists making it all possible. This is your chance to fundamentally influence how new product innovation occurs globally.

Our Lead Product Designer will apply their natural information, interaction and visual design talents to solve complex interaction design challenges. We need someone experienced in working with complex data, workflows and interactions. This talented team member will spend their days sketching, designing, prototyping and detailing gorgeous user experiences that surprise and delight our customers. This is your chance to design that experience you’ve always dreamed about. You can take your great ideas, the ones you have tucked away in the back of your mind, the ones you’ve never been able to get approval to build and bring them to life at Knowde.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Design. You'll help to invent, design and define new product features at Knowde in Figma.
  • Work with Product team and tech teams daily to stay in synch, answer questions, brainstorm and provide direction.
  • Depending on where we are at in the design cycle, you'll work on wireframes, mock-ups, design comps, all the responsive looks, notes and documentation so engineering knows how to build what you've created.
  • Co-design with business team, then flesh out and detail the designs solo and present the same or next day. Lots of iterations.
  • Perform content analysis, task analysis, task modeling, and define usage scenarios that will help drive design requirements.
  • Create and document information design concepts and solutions by various means, including sketches, diagrams, maps, storyboards, and rapid prototypes.

Who You Are

  • You're a Figma ninja!
  • You’ve designed complex UI/UX interactions with an eye towards a high-end consumer-like experience for B2B applications.
  • You are a “full stack” Product Designer, a UX/UI hybrid – you’re a hands-on, gifted designer of information and interaction who has a great eye for visual desig
  • You can own the design end-to-end. You start with a sketch or the whiff of an idea and you can breathe life into it all the way through to detailing every interaction and edge case.
  • You love Interaction design and have been designing online apps and sites for years.
  • You love design systems and design patterns.
  • You pay attention to detail but don’t sweat it when things change.


  • 5+ years designing products end-to-end.
  • Leadership and drive. We need someone to step in, grab a project, tell us “I got this!” and deliver the designs working with an analyst, PM and other members of the team.
  • UX/Interaction Design (wireframes, personas, flows, story maps).
  • UI/Visual Design (color, line, type, shape, image, composition).
  • Strong knowledge of user experience/user-centered design processes and methodology.
  • Ability to work within distributed, multidisciplinary teams.
  • Excellent communication and facilitation skills.
  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience, preferably in graphic design, information design, user interface design, fine art, industrial design, product design or another visual communications discipline.
