Senior UX/UI Designer

Job description

About Differential

Differential is growing! Yep, it turns out clients like us :) Our team of designers, developers, jokesters, and all around good folk needs more firepower. We’re proudly headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, but our team spans across the country.

 

In addition to only choosing the best group of people to work around, we are also very picky about the types of clients we’ll work with. In line with our mission to rapidly unlock value for good people with meaningful ideas, we partner with forward-thinking corporate pioneers and innovators to revolutionize their organizations from the inside out and bring impactful products to life. This translates to a diverse range of projects: from 3D closet builders for clients like Organized Living, to multi-platform mobile apps for large audiences like Crossroads Church.

 

We hire great, trustworthy people so that we can optimize for a free and flexible culture: flexible hours, unlimited vacation, remote work, and working on stuff you’re excited about. Turns out, when you’ve got a dedicated team that takes pride in their work, you don’t have to worry about how much time they’re spending in the office.

 

Job Description

The ideal candidate for this opening is a senior UX/UI designer. We’re looking for someone with 5+ years experience with designing digital products, who has an exceptional ability to communicate and collaborate with other designers, product leads, developers, and clients.

 

Please send links to digital product experiences you have designed.


As a Senior Designer, you’ll work with Product Teams of 3 to 9 developers to create design systems for modern web and mobile applications and support the continuous delivery of the Product Team. You’ll also have the opportunity to design visual concepts and interactive prototypes as a part of the Design Sprint process we do with our clients to de-risk product development in the early stages.

 

Candidates must be based in the United States, and be available for meetings during standard business hours for client and team meetings. Specific times vary based on client-specific timezone preferences. There is flexibility in working hours but there is an expectation to be able to regularly attend client and team meetings.

  • Aligning well-designed solutions with the product vision.

  • Setting the standards on which the quality and direction of the overall branding and design is built. Setting the tone for the look, feel, and quality of design.

  • With the right standards and balance, driving alignment and clarity around the solution designed to solve the user’s problems, and, in turn, reach the product vision.
