We are looking for a creative and dynamic UI/UX designer to work on a prototype design for an exciting socially powered live event discovery engine. The app is 70% complete and it will be your role to go through it and polish the design and user experience process. Conduct user testing and other various tasks concentrated around usability.
This is a test/trial job, to design 4 wireframes for the app, multiple designers will be hired, then the designer we feel is best suited to join the team will be hired on a hourly basis to work full-time on this project and others. The hourly rate will be negotiated at that time, but for those selected to participate in the trial will be paid $50 to submit the wireframes.
Some of the job requirements will be:
- Designing Wireframes for different screens. (Web & Mobile ie Responsive Design)
- Design user interaction workflow (Sign Up, Voting, Messaging, Search/Sorting etc)
- Design graphics, images, icons, borders, grids, buttons and icons. (All graphic elements.)
- Suggest usability issues or improvements
PLEASE don’t apply if you are new to web & mobile UI design or don’t have an impressive portfolio to share.
We are looking for modern, simple and elegant designs. Sample application layouts will be provided. We require a browser independent design – must work on Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Firefox.
WIreframes/Functioning Prototype using Axure or Balsamiq will be great as deliverable, CSS/HTML/Jquery will be even better but can live with PSD mock up.
It will be a Data driven application. The goal is to make it as easy, simple and quick as possible for users to scan through tons of event data to find ones they are interested in.
As the UI/UX Designer and Usability expert on the team you will get to shape greatly the feel and look of the application. From suggesting new features to simplify the user experience to even eliminating some. We want to work with someone who has opinions and loves to share them.
In the cover please include examples of past web applications you have worked on as a UI/UX and Usability Expert.
In the cover letter tell us why you are the best candidate for this project as well as what makes a great UI/UX design?
This can be a long term stable position for the right candidate.
Thanks and good luck everyone!
