Overview

We are looking for a Visual Design Lead who will make our product more beautiful and useable. This person would be in the product team and work closely with our head of product, UX lead, and front-end programmers. We are an agile shop, but not in the dogmatic sense. This role would be great for a Visual Designer with an interest in User Experience.
 
Skills 
  • User Interface Design experience for a variety of screen sizes (and therefore contexts). Even better is an understanding of how UX informs UI decisions. 
  • Interaction Design knowledge and experience.
  • Serious Visual Design chops (knowledge about grid systems, color theory, and typography). 
  • Ability to create high fidelity assets as needed with Adobe Illustrator and/or Photoshop. 
  • A formal background in Visual Arts/Graphic Design would be warmly welcomed but is not required.
  • Prototyping skills are also welcomed but not required.

Responsibilities

  • Taking a list of requirements and/or wireframes from UX/Product and turning them into beautiful interfaces.
  • Creating Axure prototypes or PowerPoint prototypes for sales demos. More robust prototyping skills for light-weight, early-stage user testing are a plus.
  • Creating high fidelity assets for sales meetings. 
  • Miscellaneous visual design work (business cards, print materials–this is a startup after all).
