User Experience Designer (Native Mobile)

Part-time MastAlgo in Newport

Are a UX Designer who thrives when solving complex problems for users? Do you relish creating simple and efficient interfaces that leave your users going "damn that was smooth"? Do you enjoy hustle, iterating quickly with engineers and users to ship products that matter, and ship them quickly? Do you want to see your designs bring value directly to users, before being yanked onto another project?

If you answered emphatically YES to all these questions, then this is your opportunity to make a difference to millions of users.

THE OPPORTUNITY

We can't tell you everything here, because, well, that would just be too overwhelming. We can tell you that we are building a revolutionary product for high-frequency users at the intersection of mobile, AI and voice. No, we're not a marketing platform; no, we're not an agency; no, we're not a big company masquerading as a startup. We are a small team of seasoned tech startup entrepreneurs, laser-focused on building the world's next great product experience.

YOUR PROFILE AND WHAT TO EXPECT

You should have a demonstrable track record in product creation, with strong experience in interaction design, visual design, and prototyping of native mobile applications (iOS, to start with). Most important is your ability to empathise with users and really understand their needs.

You will execute the top-to-bottom user experience, grokking first the broader context of the user and then synthesising beautiful and simple interactions that reinforce favourable user behaviours in the app. You must demonstrate creativity aptitude, within the boundaries of well-understood user conventions, or those that are easily learned -- we will be pushing the limits of what's possible.

Also, you need to know how to communicate well in a small, distributed team. We'll be doing lots of that.

YOUR TEAM

You, an engineer, a product manager and endless possibilities. You'll work from home (or a coffee shop) mostly, as we don't have an office. Of course, we'll meet regularly online and in person, and keep everyone in sync using the usual suspect tools. We will also converge when interviewing and testing with users. There is ample opportunity to learn from your teammates and the larger team, them from you, and us all together.

QUALIFICATIONS (IN ADDITION TO THE HUSTLE)

  • 3+ years’ experience in UX/design for a web or mobile (ideally) application.
  • Strong understanding of interactive design fundamentals.
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Suite or Sketch and Prototyping tools such as Invision.
  • Knowledge of iOS interface guidelines a huge plus.
  • Excellent communication skills in English.
  • You’re able to walk us through some recent UX/design work.
  • Experience as a UX designer working in an Agile team environment is a plus.
  • Passion with the latest in design methodologies and technologies.

TERMS

This will be a fixed contract, requiring a part-time commitment. Perfect for a moonlighter or flexible schedule. That said, we're flexible, so if we match, throw your name in the hat!
