We are looking for a talented and experienced user-experience and user-interface designer to join our team. As our ideal candidate you should be able to research different UX alternatives for a given feature, create a compelling and elegant interface for it, and clearly communicate the results with the development team. As our team is remote-first, you will be working remotely as well, therefore it's extremely important for you to possess the following personal characteristics:
Be able to articulate thoughts and plans clearly, both verbally, and in written form.
Pay very close attention to the requirements and deliver outstanding results.
In particular, we expect you to have the following skills:
Be able to get the general requirements for a given feature, research to understand the feature more in-depth, come up with different UX alternatives, and design an appealing UI for it.
Have a good taste in designing beautiful UI. You can come up with interesting ideas, and you have your past work (paid or as a hobby) to prove that.
Be familiar with basic concepts of the software UI/UX design.
Be able to differentiate between what's needed for a good responsive UI, to support different screen sizes.
Be familiar with available UI frameworks such as Material Design, Ant D, and other alternatives.
Have experience using Adobe Create Cloud softwares such as Photoshop or XD, so you can create wireframes of your UI/UX.
Being comfortable with reading and writing in English is necessary. You may choose to verbally communicate with the team in Farsi, though all written communications are in English (if you have read it so far without a dictionary, you are good)
Familiarity with Latin-based typography, iconography, animations, and other forms of multimedia is an asset.
A typical day in your work will include:
Review the product description document in detail, and understand the feature.
Think about and create UI/UX for different features.
Attend meetings to better understand features in the development pipeline, or to help the development team better understand your designs.
Improve our design system.
Research any new trends, tools, practices that we can adapt to improve our workflow and outcome.
You will receive the computer necessary for your work.
Internet and co-working space full reimbursement, if you choose to use one.
Company-sponsored team building events and trips.
Flexible working hours and location (no need to spend hours on commute).
Working with a team of respectful and professional people.
This is a full-time permanent position. We do not consider applicants looking for a part-time or hourly contract.
While the location for this position is set to Tehran, we welcome applicants from any city in Iran.
