Remote UX Designer focused on Web and Mobile Apps at Useful IO

You’re looking for a consistent, long-term UX job where you can dig deep into user behavior and have a real impact?

This is it. A lead position, where you can help drive our UX process for meaningful systems in high impact (non-game) industries.

Your variety of responsibilities will include things like the following:

* running experiments
* designing brand new web and mobile app screens and workflows
* using data and customer interviews to find areas of existing UX to improve
* if you also are UI inclined, you have the opportunity to take on tasks like branding/creating a design language/etc

You should have a few recent design examples you’re proud of and always be able to explain the reasons or theory behind your design. We design based on business and customer goals.

I’m looking for one person to join our small, fun team for the long-term that enjoys working on a variety of types of projects.

Your English needs to be good, but not necessarily fluent like a native speaker because we value diversity. Most of our communication is written (in Slack), but occasionally we have voice/video calls.

> Who We Are

We are niche software development consulting company. Our working style is different than most “agencies” because we work long-term with our clients building out their high impact technology by becoming our customer’s technology division and taking on the responsibilities of the CTO-level down. We use the latest technology and invent new technology. We value business sense as well as technical skill. Sometimes, we also launch our own products.

We are also a 100% remote company, so we know how to work properly online together. Our home base is San Francisco, but our team lives in many places around the world.

Useful IO has been writing software for very successful companies in Silicon Valley since 2011. Collectively, the team has founded 6 startups. We’ve given tech talks in SF, Tokyo, Paris, London, Athens, Warsaw and Taipei.

> Working at Useful IO

100% Remote. Work wherever you’re most comfortable, during the hours you like the most.

For once, like your teammates. Work with people who are excited about technology, excited about helping people, good at what they do, and also know how to have fun together.

High Impact. We don’t do blogs and things like that. We build stuff for industries like healthcare and agriculture.

Large. You’ll constantly be doing new things, but you’ll also have the consistency of longlived projects where you get to know the business and help make decisions.

Learn on the job. What you don’t know when you get here, we’ll help you or sponsor you to learn.

We use Slack, Asana, Meteor, Serverless, React, ReactNative, GraphQL, Github, Bitbucket, Galaxy, AWS, Intercom, Compose and Mongo Atlas on a daily basis. You are encouraged to introduce the best tools to help you with your job.

Monthly or Hourly, based on your experience and your primary location. Pay grows with responsibilities.

You can if you want to. Once you’re hired, you’ll find out more. 🙂

> Our Principles

Change is necessary.
Example The right solution today might be the wrong solution tomorrow, and that’s ok. Sometimes we have weekly meetings, some times we don’t, it depends on if it’s the best way to collaborate.

Do things for a reason.
Example Lots of teams get sucked into busy work. We train our clients and ourselves to ask for things that matter and only do those things. We’re constantly working to eliminate waste.
