UX Designer (Contract) Hearsay Labs
You?ve been a contractor on multiple awesome products and been a part of countless teams in high-tech. You have suffered through poorly designed user experiences, learned the lessons, and developed a solid design portfolio that avoids the common UX pitfalls. You are the kind of designer who can think at a high level, communicate your ideas, anticipate the issues that will arise, all while staying focused on the deliverable.
At Hearsay Social we care deeply about designing solid user experience and work hard on products and solutions that will be of the highest quality. We?re looking for a contractor who can fit into our team, laugh at our jokes, contribute strategic ideas to our product, and then get down to work in a flexible environment. Whether working on a team or as an individual contributor within a structure, hard work is rewarded, and no one gets tossed under the bus. You are a self-starter, highly motivated, and you?ll work towards tough deadlines, pushing yourself and the team to deliver great design on time.
We look forward to working with you. The next step is yours.
