About the Job:

We are looking for a talented UI/UX professional to join our growing Capterra technology team. This is a hands on role focusing on conceptualization of UI design for quick prototyping with minimum supervision. You will work on a variety of different projects and ideally create your own designs while rarely relaying on stock or libraries.

What you’ll do:
  • Listen to the voice of the visitor. You will first seek to understand, and only then design content to optimize user behavior and experience.
  • Web design. You will design new pages or redesign existing pages to respond to the voice of visitor. You might do this in CS, or prototype in HTML/CSS.
  • Measure results. Together with our business intelligence team, you'll use tools like Google Analytics, Optimizely and Clicktale to understand your impact


Job Requirements:

What you’ll need:

  • A Bachelor’s Degree 4+ years’ experience
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • CSS Frameworks
  • JavaScript (Great to have)
  • The right candidate likes to create their own work and rarely likes to rely on stock

Who you are:

  • Is a goal oriented designer. Design appreciation is subjective, but user experience can be quantified. You design for results.
  • Is fairly technical. Not only can you design in Adobe CS, but when called upon you can code in HTML, CSS and JavaScript to prototype or fix a pixel here or there.
  • Is pragmatic and goal oriented. Despite your artistic gifts, you are fascinated by user behavior and measures of effectiveness.
  • Is organized and deadline aware. We know we can't rush great things, but we've got some serious deadlines. Your organization and project management make it happen.


What we offer:

  • A collaborative, positive culture. You’ll work with people who are as enthusiastic, smart and driven as you are. You’ll be managed by the best too.
  • Limitless growth and learning opportunities. We offer the excitement of a fast-paced entrepreneurial workplace and the professional growth opportunities of an established global organization.
  • Outstanding compensation. We offer a competitive salary and generous benefits; including a robust time off allowance and great “perks”
