Job Description

Are you a designer who loves front-end development? Are you a front-end developer with design chops? Kinda sorta both?

Us too – let’s work together!

Silky soft-skills ❤️

  • You’re Experienced: You have worked on consumer-facing applications serving thousands of users, and for long enough to have encountered successes and failures
  • You’re Really Good: Your are obsessed with execution – your UX work is straight-forward and your UI implementation is 🔥
  • You’re Organized: You’d rather work within a system than in the wilderness – maybe you’ve even helped build a design system or two
  • You’re Professional: You can take a roughly scoped project and, leading one or two back-end developers, can execute
  • You’re Wise: You have experience incorporating feedback and data into your work – you even feel a little lost without those things
  • You’re Adaptable: You can responsibly adjust course or cut scope if new information exposes road-blocks in your way
  • You’re Empathetic: You fight for the user and have war stories to tell – let’s hear some! 🍿
