UI/UX Designer / Front-end Developer
Posted on: 31 Oct 2013Location:Toronto, Ontario, Canada
We’ve got a pipeline of projects in the works, using 3D assets from games to produce differentiated interactive marketing experiences for game studios. And this is just the beginning. We’re also working on apps in the scientific visualization space, in heritage/museums, with architecture firms, and of course with CG artists and the communities that represent them. Our sweet spot is web applications with gaming/3D elements, and the market opportunity is massive.
We have an opening on the team for a senior UI/UX designer / creative front-end developer, to work on our tools' graphic interface and also on client projects (websites and mobile applications). The principal responsibility will be design, but at Verold our Venn diagram between front end dev, back end dev, and design overlaps more than you may be used to. You’ll be responsible for creating the design brief and initial prototypes, and working with the team on delivery. The work will not be like anything you’ve done before; you’ll have to be excited to learn new skills and get out of your comfort zone to find creative solutions to design challenges. You will need to articulate your ideas through mockups, wireframes, and working code. We value initiative, design research experience, a strong aesthetic tempered with empathy (we have the toughest clients in the world – they are all artists!). You will be required to do some internal print design work (business cards, stationery, promotional posters, etc.).
