The Role

User Experience (UX) Engineers are the synthesis of design and development. They take the most innovative product concepts and bring them to life in an effort to push the boundaries of user interface design. We want to be known for our design aesthetics and technical know-how. In a UX Engineer role, you'll need both types of skills to develop the next generation of products.

Details are critical as you iterate on complex interactions, animations and pixel-perfect visual designs.

From online to offline we want to be known for innovative user interfaces that push the boundaries of design and technology.
