  • Partner with our engineers to understand technical constraints and possibilities, and work closely with engineering to implement live code as early as possible

  • Create mobile-first/responsive designs from project start to finish, including diagramming user flows, creating wireframes and creating high-fidelity clickable prototypes, and delivering pixel-perfect dev ready designs

  • Communicate effectively with all parts of our organization, especially product management, engineering, and UX research/consumer insights; pitch designs and concepts to stakeholders

  • Apply your extensive experience in UX design best practices/patterns to design solutions while educating and building capacity within the UX and product teams

  • Web design, including ability to understand and write HTML, CSS, and JS

  • Ability to write code and understand the development process

  • Previous management/team lead experience

Please Submit

  • Resume

  • Instead of a cover letter, please answer the following question:

    • Increasingly, tech products take in a lot of data and make decisions for the user. The processes are hidden from the user and the user's mental model may not match what is actually happening in the system. What product/app/site that does this best creates a sense of trust with the user? How do they do it?

  • Portfolio

Your portfolio should include:

  • 4 examples of work related projects you have created (attachments must be formatted in PDF)

  • Explain the process involved in developing the design or project

Compensation

  • Salary based on experience

  • Stock options
