Senior UX Designer

About Quix

Our mission is to help developers use live data in their applications, faster.

The use of event streaming is booming. Organisations are in a race to become data-driven, but working with live data-in-flight remains difficult, time-consuming and costly.

Our innovative developer-first platform enables developers and enterprise to build, test and deploy live models and services directly on Kafka, fast.

With built-in scale, efficiency and resilience, our unique Stream SDK supports time-series data, events, metadata and binary blobs, integrating seamlessly into the application stack to deliver an end-to-end platform that developers love, in minutes.

Quix is adopted by developers across the video game, racing, manufacturing, automotive, health and telco industries.

Our team rapidly developed into a remote-first organisation during 2020 with people now living and working across the world.

We are building a category defining platform which will launch a new data-driven epoch.

Join us and bring your passion!
