Headquarters: Chicago, IL
We’re looking for passionate UX practitioners and UI designers who want to make the web a better place. We want someone who enjoys simplifying designs, making apps easy to use, and can intelligently explain their decisions to non-designers.
Specifically, the following attributes are major positives, but not all are hard requirements:
- Experience working with clients or other stakeholders directly. A people person.
- Doesn’t mind a bit of travel, averaging every couple of months
- Has strong opinions about the best UX practices
- Comfortable running unbiased user testing
- Familiar with all the best wire-framing and prototyping tools
- Has experience specifically designing apps for the web or mobile devices
- A keen eye for the proper use of type, space, and color
- Designs beautiful interfaces that people want to touch
- Can write HTML, CSS, and Less or Sass
- Not afraid of the command line (even if you don't use it much)
We also expect that you're proficient in many or all of the standard tools for web design, stuff like: Adobe CC, Sketch, Axure / InVision, Git / Github, Bootstrap / Foundation, so on and so forth... And we would love if you love Flexbox and CSS Grid.
