Senior UX Developer

Full time @Tarauli posted 2 months ago

Job Description

Overview

Location:  Remote US or Canada (must be willing to work Eastern or Central Time Zone hours)

Travel:  Less than 5%

Manages Others: No

Experience: 5+ years of experience in front-end OR UX development, JavaScript frameworks (Vue.js, React or Angular), front-end technologies such as HTML5 and lower, CSS3 and lower, SCSS, ES6+ and Figma.

The Opportunity:

The successful candidates will report to the Product Design Lead and be responsible for executing and delivering well-tested code. You will work on several projects, including our core applications and customer-facing interfaces. Your ability to resolve issues and make recommendations reduces the need for front-end development rework and helps drive improvements.

 

UX initiatives you will impact in 2024:

First Initiative: We’re seeking someone passionate about extracting our design system from Figma into Storybook components. Each scrum team will use the component library to enable scalable, modular components, have a unified language, design consistency, and foster inclusivity. By providing a “blueprint” (e.g. time, tools, resources, accessibility, education, documentation) and anticipating their needs, you ensure the component library can be used effectively by developers.

 

Second initiative: Using Product Design’s 10-star experience, or product vision, you will develop and produce iterative UX prototypes. Besides understanding how the code affects the user experience, you can also identify usability issues. Pixel pushing impacts user goals, trust, and branding, so you know why it matters. You will ensure a smooth transition for the scrum team when a UX prototype is ready to be handed off.

Qualifications
