UX/UI Designer

Job Description:

We’re looking for a creator, a hacker, a learner; not simply an artist.

Our UX/UI designer will be filling the role of a behavioral scientist in a design environment. This individual needs to be able to shift from one project to another without missing a beat with a smile on their face. Candidates will be expected to provide and present top-tier design work to each and every client over the phone or on video calls. Their primary mission will be to understand our business needs, product requirements, and transform that understanding into user-focused and intuitive products, interfaces, platforms for mobile and web.

Remember: A passion for design and the desire to innovate is important in taking on this role. Good communication skills and ability to think critically are also key in working with everyone from our strategists, project managers, developers, paid media managers, and the rest of the creative team.

Job Responsibilities:

  • UX/UI design skills, HTML/CSS, WordPress, and Shopify experience are a must. Much of what we do entails thinking through web, landing pages, and email design.
  • Validate ideas and designs using split A/B tests and product performance.
  • Collaborate and communicate professionally with clients and internal teams.
  • User-experiences from low-fidelity sketches to hi-fidelity pixel perfect mockups.
  • Measure recently released product features to establish benchmarks and identify potential areas of improvement.
  • Stay up-to-date on UX trends and look for creative ideas and inspiration in parallel analogous worlds.
  • Develop interactive reporting dashboards and different types of visualizations.
  • Creating rapid prototypes to validate design concepts with stakeholders and customers.
  • Highly detailed communication of design principles and direction, as well as design specifications to engineers.

We are looking for someone with:

  • 5+ years of UX or interactive design experience.
  • High level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • A degree in graphic design, interaction design, or other relevant experience.
  • Well-designed examples of responsive grid-based layouts. Strong work portfolio that demonstrates systematic and creative design thinking as well as a deep understanding of UI/UX best practices.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills (the ability to effectively sell an idea).
  • Experience working with the latest versions of the Adobe Creative Suite, XD, Figma, and Interactive prototyping tools.
  • Demonstrates competent execution of innovative and effective digital communications, interface design, and interaction design across different digital platforms.
  • Understanding of ecommerce platforms such as WooCommerce and Shopify.
  • Ability to manage time wisely across projects and competing priorities, meet agreed upon deadlines, and be accountable for work.
  • Proficiency in graphic design, motion graphics, digital art, a sensitivity to typography, color, layout, and a general awareness of materials/textures.

Please be sure to include a link to your online portfolio or some design work you’re proud to show off to be considered for the position. BuzzShift is an equal opportunity employer and supports diversity in the workplace.
