  • Champion your point of view, both in design reviews and throughout the problem solving process, by using clear and customer-centric narratives derived from your own personal experience
  • Bring with you an expert understanding of structure, composition, typography, color theory, human-computer interaction, and modern practices for responsive, e-commerce design on the web
  • At the most basic level, design responsive web applications that empower real people to make the most of their money, through ideation, experimentation, realization and iteration

Skills & Qualifications

  • 5+ years experience in web and mobile user experience, interaction, and visual design for e-commerce, including familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, or similar tools
  • A formal degree in Design, Human-Computer Interaction, related field, or equivalent work experience
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, especially the ability to clearly articulate design decisions and project status with business partners and team members

  • A careful attention to detail and the ability to grasp complex, nuanced product requirements
  • An established familiarity with the capabilities and limitations of desktop browsers, mobile devices, and modern HTML/CSS/JS technologies
  • A passion for extraordinary user interfaces that surprise, delight, and solve real, human problems
  • A strong portfolio featuring design work that showcases your product design, interaction design, IA/UX, visual design and mobile/web design skills


  • Comprehensive benefits package including health, dental, vision, 401(K) with match, disability and life insurance
  • Minimum 15 days PTO plus 11 paid holidays
