Passionate UI / UX Designer Wanted

Irvine, California, United States Full-time

Hi! It’s Cameron and Vinson at Vincit. Yeah it’s great that we’ve got awesome projects getting thrown at us from all directions, but we’re just so lonely. So we decided to look for a new UI / UX homie to join the team, do awesome work, and eat burritos with us at TLT. Sometimes Chipotle.

 

About the Position

You’ll typically be in charge of your own ground-up web or app project with a bit of support and direction from the UI / UX Lead. Other than that, you will have a few support projects and the occasional internal task. The workload is very reasonable - you won’t be expected to work any overtime. You’ll be working directly with our developers, who you’ll be sharing bunk-desks* with, so handoff is very smooth.

*Fingers crossed for bunk-desks. For now, they’ll just be sitting nearby.
