Candidates should show an impressive background with interface design and thoughtful consideration for user-centered design.

This role is focused on user interface design: how users interact with devices, how users process information, and ultimately how HireBeat’s product “looks” and “feels”. The core to this role is the creation of the final “pixel-perfect” UI, illustration, and micro animation that ensures a holistic, consistent experience and branding across our products.The ideal candidate will have experience in creating mockups to present to teams, collecting feedback, and creating quality work.

This individual should be comfortable with building sitemaps, wireframes, and prototypes to provide to the project manager and execute based on outlined criteria. This candidate should have strong creative and design skills and be familiar with various design platforms. As a plus, you will also have the ability to conduct end-to-end user research and interviews, including planning, recruiting, executing, and reporting on qualitative usability testings, in collaboration with the team. You will talk with our target audience, test features, analyze results, and present your findings that will refine the user experience.
