Web Designer

Niche is seeking a full-time, junior-level UI/UX Designer to join our growing team. This is a great opportunity to work on a wide variety of design projects for a rapidly growing tech company.

Description

We're looking for a skilled designer to join our product development team. Niche Design manages a suite of tools to support our marketing and sales teams and you'll be tasked with operating and improving on them. You'll also be an active contributor to the design systems we use to build Niche.com. And most importantly you'll be a part of the full design process—from sketching and wireframing to building functional prototypes and user testing. It's vital that you understand and embrace the unique medium of the web and think in terms of responsive layouts for all devices. You should think beyond the "what it looks like" to find the "how and why." When applying, you must include a link to your portfolio containing relevant work.

Requirements

  • 0-3 years relevant experience
  • BA in Graphic Design, Design, Media or related creative field
  • Knowledgeable about design on web/mobile
  • An excellent sense of typography, layout, general design principles and attention to detail
  • A self-motivated individual with passion for design
  • Diligent, detail-oriented, and able to follow direction well
  • Ability to articulate complex concepts and discuss goals of your designs
  • Basic knowledge of HTML/CSS or a strong desire to learn it quickly
  • Experience with Javascript and other "lite" web development is a plus

This is a full time, salaried position with competitive compensation and benefits including 20 paid days off per year, paid time off for volunteering, paid parental leave, stock options, SIMPLE IRA, and a comprehensive health plan, including vision and dental, provided at no cost to the employee.
