Front-end Developer & UX Champ.

Location: New York, NY

Department: Product & Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Lead Product/UX Designer → Front-end Developer and UX Champion

(Actual Champions also encouraged to apply)

 

You think visually and spatially, and get excited about the prospect of spending most of your time in uncharted territory.  For you, balance, unity and rhythm aren’t just design principles to be considered; you embody them.  You don’t want to just follow the latest design trends; you strive to create them.  

The concepts of shipping early, measuring, learning and iterating feel natural to you, and you understand that amazing experiences don’t appear out of thin air, they are meticulously honed over time.

Responsibilities: You’ll be expected to dive right in and begin driving the product design and development process from sketch/wireframe to functional code.  Thousands of users will quickly become some of your best friends and collaborators.  Your job will be to listen to what they think they want, and give them what they never knew they wanted.

Desired Skills & Experience

Strong UI / UX experience and instincts are a must for this role. We want to hear about your creative process, the research techniques you use and how you think about evolving a product and users' experiences with it over time. 

Candidates for this role are expected to have some familiarity with front-end development (HTML5, CSS3, javascript and jQuery), and a solid grasp of graphic design (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)

Requirements

  • 3+ years experience working in UX and/or front-end development/design on a high-growth product or within a startup.
  • A deep passion for understanding and connecting with Users, and creating magical user experiences to delight them.
  • The ability to create beautiful and effective designs- and to rapidly interpret those designs into code.
  • Desire to work in a fast-moving environment with a great deal of autonomy.

Plusses

  • Experience with React.js
  • Use of Bootstrap / Foundation.
  • Working knowledge of PHP / MySQL, git and/or command line.
  • Experience in building and leading a team.
  • Colleagues and friends who want to join your team.
