UI Engineer

Overview

We are looking for a passionate UI Software Engineer to design and develop simple, elegant, effective enterprise SaaS web interfaces.

As a UI Software Engineer, you’ll be responsible for designing and delivering the user experience for our web interfaces. This starts with research of the required feature-sets (taking guidance from across many departments in the company), to designing mockups to present the experience, to the end-delivery of the new interface changes within our product.

Our ideal candidates are familiar with the software development life cycle (SDLC) from preliminary system analysis to tests and deployment.
