Remote UI/UX Designer job

For farmers and local food producers who sell directly into local markets, COVID-19 has made the in-person sales they depend on very difficult. As peak harvest season approaches, many local food producers are scrambling to move their sales online, where orders can be fulfilled without face-to-face interaction. How we purchase food has changed.

Are you a creative web developer that wants to help local food producers during this difficult time? Geeks in the Woods - a startup studio - is looking for a UI/UX designer like you to lead the design and development of a new online shopping experience.

Geeks in the Woods is building a new startup B-corp to address this challenge by connecting local food producers directly to consumers. As part of the startup studio, you will be part of a small and agile team developing web experiences - building the startup idea into a scaling marketplace that achieves product/market fit. With this opportunity, you will definitely enjoy agile and lean development processes.

The ideal candidate is funky, creative, resourceful, and driven to work in a lean and results-oriented environment with a high level of integrity and humility. A sense of humor is also a plus. You will work with some of the brightest minds in the software development community. You will have opportunities to create beautiful and impactful user experiences.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Mobile-first design of UI and UX
  • Communicating design ideas using user flows, process flows, site maps and wireframes
  • Create original website design ideas that bring simplicity and user-friendliness to complex roadblocks
  • Execute visual design stages from concept to final hand-off to engineering
  • Code new web pages with HTML5, CSS and jQuery
  • Provide high-quality graphics and visual elements

You are...

  • FUnKy and CREATIVE
  • Proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator or other visual design and wire-framing tools
  • Proficient in HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Excellent with visual design and sensitive to user-system interaction
  • An individual contributor at heart, that prefers to lead by example rather than managing others to create the change
  • Team-oriented problem solver: No one knows everything, so let’s work together
  • Comfortable operating at a high speed with occasionally ambiguous requirements

Minimum Qualifications

  • Proven work experience as a web developer
  • 2+ years of experience with JavaScript, HTML, CSS
  • 2+ years of graphic design experience
