So are YOU our next UX/UI Designer? You are if…

You dream in pixels and mock-ups and have an impressive online portfolio to prove it. You have 7+ years of experience in user-centered design, working on projects involving competitor research and initial storyboarding, as well as developing prototypes and providing final graphic assets. You speak in CSS3 and HTML5 and have a strong understanding of Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, and Axure.

You have a service-oriented mindset and a willingness to go the extra mile to assist the team in any way to ensure project success. It’s all about team work here. Have experience in product gamification and a background in traditional art or 3D modeling? Awesome!
