Combining research, data, and thoughtful critique, we're discovering needs and solving fundamental problems that impact our clients.
Experience Design is at the forefront of everything you do, and you believe in the transformative power of data and are excited by its potential to drive impactful change for the world’s preeminent companies and organizations. We are looking for a highly skilled designer in fundamental visual and interaction design principles for our ecosystem of data products.

The intent is to enable a more familiar cross-application experience for our clients and define modern solutions that can adapt to modular systems and interaction models.

Founded in 2011, Enigma grew out of an effort to retrieve, normalize, and host public data. Fun fact, our big coming out party was winning TechCrunch Disrupt 2013 Battlefield.
Our vision is to empower people to interpret, and improve, the world around them. We place data in the context of the real world and make it connected, open and actionable. Enigma has one of the world’s largest repositories of public data and a powerful infrastructure for operationalizing data in the enterprise. We help global-scale companies tackle some of their hardest problems by driving public data and enterprise ontologies in mission-critical workflows.
Along the way, we have accumulated expertise from centralizing and connecting billions of public records and built powerful enterprise infrastructure for data ingestion, exploration, linking, and delivery (all of which is used internally).
Enigma is a rapidly growing team based in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City. We are Series B funded startup backed by an amazing roster of investors including NEA Ventures, Two Sigma Ventures, American Express Ventures, and The New York Times Company.
