Description

Want to use your design skills to help people in a meaningful way? The Iron Yard is hiring a UI Designer to join its product development team. As the first designer on our product team, your design abilities will have lasting impact on students as we build tools to help teachers teach and students learn.

The product team at the Iron Yard will be focused on helping students learn both in the classroom and on an ongoing basis once they’ve completed their program. We want to help students find a career they love and then grow in it for the rest of their lives.

The ideal designer will need to have a broad set of skills and be ready to dig in and do what it takes to launch a new web application. We’ll look to this person to help us determine how best to build the design team as our needs grow.

What the role and responsibilities look like:

  • User Interface Design: You’ll be designing and building the UI for a new web application, but will also be designing the visual framework with which we grow that application. You’ll work closely with our Creative Director to adhere to and advance our brand as it relates to UI.
  • Look & Feel: UI design is about more than solving usability challenges - the interface sets the tone for the user experience. We're looking for someone who has a deep understanding of design principles and can consistently carry over the personality of The Iron Yard brand into the development of beautiful web applications.
  • Front End: We need a UI designer who can write the HTML and CSS for the interfaces they design. You won’t be on your own, though. We have a team of experienced developers that you’ll work with each day.
  • Focus on education: While you won’t be teaching students directly, the interfaces you build will be used to educate, so you’ll need to be ready and willing to grow your knowledge of education. You’ve got to commit, above all else, to helping our students learn through the interfaces you design.
  • Collaboration: We’re a team that works very collaboratively and that is willing to hear anyone out. The ideal UI Designer for our team will take others’ opinions into account, and also clearly explain their own opinions.

Your qualities and experience:

  • Self-starter who takes ownership of your role
  • Expertise (and lots of experience) in HTML5 and CSS3; familiarity with JavaScript and interacting with the DOM
  • A passion for design and for creating amazing products
  • Really care about the mission of filling the gigantic developer shortfall happening in our industry
  • A good sense of humor
  • Big fan of open source work and building the dev community in general
  • Bonus: great at finding epic gifs

Location:

We welcome teammates to join us in Greenville, SC where we are headquartered. However, this position may work remotely.

Compensation and benefits:

  • Competitive full-time salary
  • 100% paid medical insurance with a health savings account. We deposit your deductible into your account each year so your out-of-pocket expenses in-network expenses are removed. We also cover your dental insurance premiums and offer very generous paid time off.
