UI/UX Designer

Come help us build beautiful web and mobile applications for our clients. Craft user experiences from scratch and realize them in React.

Job Description

We’re looking for our next application UI/UX designer to join our growing custom software development team.

Ideal candidates have a strong design background and experience crafting interfaces for mobile and web applications, from scratch. We need talented people who want to work in a fun, laid back work environment, building great software experiences for a variety of clients.

You should be near expert-level in HTML and CSS/SCSS, though, and at least somewhat familiar with JavaScript and the DOM. We build everything in React.js, so some exposure to that is helpful, but not required.

Our projects are all app-based. We’re not a marketing or ad agency, but a custom software consultancy. For mobile, we’re working with React Native.

In a nutshell, you’ll be designing complete, high-quality web and mobile applications for our clients on a daily basis: helping with storyboarding, product design, persona development, UI/UX consulting, interaction design, interface design, CSS development, communicating with our clients, communicating with your testers, and working to deliver awesome product every day.

You’ll also have the ability to significantly affect the culture of the company. We’re a small company: just over twenty people. This means that everything you do can have an impact. We’re continuing to grow our design team, which is quite small at the moment. While we have some established processes, we’re constantly evolving them and striving to improve our approach.

Everything we do is in-house, and we own the whole software development lifecycle, including product design, architecture, front-end dev, API dev and architecture, testing/QA, and devops and continued support.

Ideally you’re active on Dribbble or Behance, have a personal portfolio you’re extremely proud of, a good sense of humor, and have a passion for interface and experience design that doesn’t stop when you go home.

Skills & Requirements

We’re looking for design talent with a wide breadth of skills, but the capacity to learn quickly is important. It’s also our preference to bring on talent with a strong design background.

Our “must haves” typically include experience with:

  • Sketch
  • Adobe products (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
  • HTML 5
  • Invision, or other prototyping tools
  • CSS, including pre-processing, cross-browser considerations
  • STRONG written and spoken communication skills
  • The ability to create clean, simple, modern application interfaces
  • UX familiarity: designing experiences that work with the user throughout

The following skills/experience earn you extra points:

JavaScript frameworks/libraries (React.js, Ember.js, Backbone.js, Angular.js, etc.) Illustration/drawing experience It’s important for both of us that you mesh with our culture. We’ll feel that out over the application process.

If you think that this sounds like you then please submit your cover letter, resume, and a link to your portfolio to [email protected]
