We currently have an opportunity for a creative and detailed oriented individual who has a passion for User Experience and User Interface design with graphic design roots.
 
Our perfect candidate is someone who comes from a graphic design background that has transitioned into the software / web application front-end development realm.
 
You thrive in a collaborative environment and are able to work on multiple projects with multiple internal clients (project teams).

  • understand software development concepts and possess a lack of intimidation when it comes to highly complex software (technical savvy)
  • able to work independently with little direction and be self-motivated (get stuff done!)
  • collaborate with product development team on the defining and refining of functional features and workflows to help make the product design come to life (team player – no ego!)
