FigBytes is looking to hire an entry level UI / UX Front End Developer. To succeed in this position the most important traits are an eye for design, a desire to create a product that is loved by the end user and always wanting to get better through learning and trial and error. Thinking about the big picture and the ability to break it down into actionable chunks is nice as well. You will be working closely with Engineers and Product Managers on UI flows, web design and front end development. Breadth of experience isn’t as important as the ability to grow within your current talents. You will have a meaningful impact on the product now and into the future. We make decisions fast, move fast and always iterate to get a better product in front of our customer. The quest to continually make FigBytes products simpler and more usable (read intuitive) is ever present.
