UX/UI Designer

Our three-member design team is looking for an experienced colleague!

We work on a variety of projects in finance, retail, IoT and more. Each project is different, and you will have the rare privilege of choosing from them - we're in demand! You will get to work on projects of a kind that you would probably never have access to as a freelancer. At the same time, you will never be stuck working on a never ending, monotonous job.

Furthemore, you’ll be stepping your portfolio up several notches - we have cool clients. The whole process of product creation is in store for you, from briefs and wireframes to UIs and clickable prototypes.

You will be in close contact with our developers, you will be a step ahead of them all the way and if you’re ever unsure how to deal with something, they will be happy to help you.
