About Metaplane

Metaplane helps companies trust their data.

Our observability platform helps data teams (like Imperfect Foods, Reforge, Drift, Vendr, Appcues, and many more) continuously monitor their data pipelines so they know when things break, what went wrong, and how to fix it — before executives message them.

We’re a Boston-based, remote-friendly company founded by MIT and HubSpot alums. We’re backed by leading investors such as Y Combinator, Flybridge, and notable angel investors, including the founders of HubSpot, Okta, and Lookout.

Check out our recent podcasts on the dbt Analytics Engineering Podcast, Software Engineering Daily, Monday Morning Data Chat, and SuperDataScience to learn more about our story. We’d love to have you onboard!

The Role

We’re focused on building the best data observability platform on the market, but we recognize that bringing data quality to all companies requires more than just building a great product. We also need to educate data teams about how Metaplane can help them deliver data their colleagues can trust.

As our Senior Marketing Designer, you will be responsible for providing art direction to our team of freelance creatives. From layout design and illustration to animation and multimedia production, you’ll own the visual aspects of our brand presence. You will work closely with our marketing team and founders, but should expect to collaborate with the whole team.
