What's the gig?

We're looking for a talented UI Designer to join our team and create best-in-class E-Commerce designs. You should have an eye for clean, artful design and possess superior UI skills. We'd also want you to translate high-level requirements into interaction flows and components which are transformed into beautiful, intuitive, and functional user-facing applications, websites, and consumer products with an E-Commerce focus. If you're the right fit, you'll understand the nuance between UI and UX design, have a creative yet organized approach to tackling problems, and creating solutions and be the person on the team that stays on top of what's hot and what's not. Lastly, you'll have a keen understanding of development practices with a strong sense of how users view and interact with applications, websites, and interfaces and the level of effort needed to turn your visual concept into a functional product.

  • Communicate cross-functionally to understand business department goals and objectives.

  • Create responsive designs for multiple contexts and device types (desktop, mobile, tablet).

  • Present and defend design decisions. All design decisions should be based on the overall design roadmap as well as your own design thinking and fundamental principles (i.e. color theory, visual weight, etc.)

  • Support design decisions with best practices and data from usability studies and site metrics.

  • Ensure deliverables are detailed enough for implementation through a deep understanding of modern FED (e.g. dynamic content, checkout scenarios, form behavior, etc)

  • Conceptualize original ideas that bring simplicity and user-friendliness to complex design roadblocks.

  • Assist with user research, interviews, surveys, and usability studies, translating findings into wireframes and prototypes.

  • Work with the Business Intelligence team to assess the impact of all UI design and usability changes.

  • Mentor junior UI Visual Designers, providing training and support.
