As a UX/UI Interaction Designer, you will be responsible for an integral part of the development and delivery of our core B2B/B2C product, Aurora, a digital platform designed to help women early in their careers thrive and rise. We’re building some exciting new features from the ground up, and we want a UX/UI Interaction Designer to help us figure out how those products should look and function.

This is a remote contracting role for 15-20 hours per week for 12-16 weeks, with the possibility to extend if it’s a good fit on both sides. We can be flexible on hours and duration for the right candidate.

Responsibilities
This UX/UI Interaction Designer role will likely include the following tasks, among others:

Creating wireframes, mocks, and eventually pixel-perfect spec sheets to hand off to the development team.
Creating consistent designs across mobile and web.
Creating UI components such as buttons or switches that are on-brand and utilize established design patterns.
Creating and/or working within an established design language.
Presenting designs to stakeholders and iterating based on feedback from the team and business requirements.
Convincing non-designers why a design is good or bad.
Using Sketch, Figma, or similar tools to collaboratively create low-fidelity mocks with the team.
Researching similar products and designs to help make the best design choices for our products.
Working with developers directly to clarify a design or figure out low-cost alternatives if a design is difficult to implement.
Qualifications
We’re flexible for the right candidate, but the following qualifications are preferred:

5+ years of industry experience on web or mobile products, with at least 2 in UI/UX/interaction design.
Strong knowledge of current web/mobile design patterns across multiple OS platforms (including web, iOS, and Android)
Familiarity with design standards. E.g., accessibility pertaining to color theory, typography, contrast, and other areas.
Light visual design skills for creating buttons, icons, or other tasks requiring manipulation of images.
Familiarity with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React Native, and other web-dev technologies is a plus.
Bachelor’s degree in Design, HCI, or similar (or equivalent experience).
A portfolio of relevant work samples
Bonus points if you’ve worked on chat or Q&A products such as Slack, Discord, Quora, Stack Overflow, or similar.
