About the Job
The UX Designer role involves much more than polishing up a Wordpress/Squarespace template. We’re designing simple and delightful experiences for often complex software products. More than pixel pushing, the work is fun and challenging -- commonly involving research, planning, prototyping, and problem solving. Anything but boring, the projects you’ll work on will range from branding and web design, to UI and interaction design for applications, to print and signage design for large events.
In a startup-like atmosphere, you’ll work in sync with fellow UX designers, product managers and engineers to craft experiences that make clients and users happy.
What We Need...
Design cross-platform experiences and user-friendly flows that are as intuitive as they are beautiful
Research and advocate for the use of latest and best practices in interface design
Conduct whiteboard exercises with clients at the earliest stages of their product idea to better understand features and requirements
Effectively communicate design decisions to clients and stakeholders, processing and applying feedback
Be someone who’s generally pleasant to work with
What You Need...
- 2+ years of experience in UX and product design (or an amazing portfolio)
- Experience with Sketch and the Adobe Creative Suite
- A strong portfolio with mobile and web-based projects
- Beefy UX chops - experience creating user stories, user flow diagrams, sitemaps, wireframes, prototypes
- Traditional print, illustration and or photography understanding a plus
- HTML & CSS skills are a plus
- LARPing and/or nunchuck skills are a plus
