What the role looks like:
As our UX/UI designer, working closely with a Lead UX Designer, you’ll be given the opportunity to craft the visual design of a successful application and to help define the design language for the team to use. Your medium will be HTML and CSS and we will look to you to take the lead in the visual impact that application has on users. Working in a startup with deep involvement in the full product development life cycle, you’ll be an integral part of the project to overhaul the look and feel of a successful SaaS application.
What you’ll be responsible for:
-Defining a 'design language' for the application and setting the standard for all UI interactions to use.
-Working with the Lead UX designer to develop user interface interactions that are easy to use, clear and consistent across the application
-Creating and maintaining the application wide CSS to control the look and feel.
-Work with front-end developers to make the HTML designs interactive and integrate with the application.
-Working with the product manager, lead UX and developers to develop functionality within the application.
Who will be successful in this role?
-A graduate of visual design that thinks about the user experience, and looking to create elegant solutions.
-Someone who is able to occupy the mind of our users and empathize with their needs and viewpoints
-Someone who is very comfortable designing in HTML and CSS.
-A person who works and collaborates well with other designers to craft the overall vision.
-Someone who values elegance, simplicity and consistency in visual design over flashy and eye-catching.
-Someone who is very detail-oriented (so you’ll notice that we’d like you to mention ‘WALL-E’ in your cover letter).
What we’d love to see in your work history:
-An undergraduate degree in a relevant field.
-3+ years in designing web application interfaces.
-Proficiency in delivering HTML and CSS assets as output.
-A portfolio of work.
-Experience with designing interfaces for complex web applications.
