UI/UX eCommerce Designertitel


Your Day-to-day
This is a hands-on, remote, contract UI/UX eCommerce design position.

You'll work directly with our project managers and developers as a user experience expert and advocate. As an eCommerce designer, the two main goals for most your designs will be to help tell a brand's story and promote conversions. Your impact will be highly measurable on client's bottom lines.

You'll participate in internal and external conversations and use wireframes, storyboards, personas, user journeys, full-fidelity designs, and process flows to communicate your vision for the customer. You'll collaborate with engineers to ensure designs are practical and actionable. Then, after your designs have been implemented and deployed, we'll review performance analytics so we can iterate and improve.

Our projects are generally focused around making large, material changes to our clients' sites or designing and developing new sites from the ground up.

  • Context—understanding our clients and their customers—empowers designers to find better solutions.
  • Automating repeatable processes frees up time for more interesting problems.
  • No process for process' sake. No meetings for meetings' sake. But there's a place for both.
  • Build or use tools to provide predictability and eliminate boring work.
  • Designer productivity is hugely dependent on a minimally distracting, supportive environment.
