Junior UI/UX Developer // Small Improvements

November 13, 2017

We help employees grow and communicate better. Our feedback platform serves 700+ customers worldwide, including GoEuro, OpenTable, Marley Spoon and GetYourGuide. We’d love to hire a keen UI/UX developer with a passion for clean design to help us re-imagine major parts of our web application.

About us

We’re a small but very international team of 30 people based in Hackescher Markt for most, and the US. Our customers use Small Improvements to give and receive feedback about their work, to set goals and objectives and to praise each other for a job well done. (We use it internally too of course.)

It’s a userfriendly product, enabled by a very configurable and complex backend. We’re constantly reworking existing functionality and building new features. Join our team of 6 UI/UX designers and 10 developers and help us make our product and brand truly world-class.

What you’ll do

The job combines design and development.

UI/UX aspects:

  • Ensure the product looks slick and simple
  • Make interactions and flows work like a breeze
  • Display the right amount of detail at the right time
  • Ensure screens are efficient and self-explanatory
  • Make end users rave about our UI to their friends
  • Sketch wireframes and create clickable mockups for instance using InVision

Coding aspects:

  • Build new features together with our Javascript coders
  • Ensure our HTML and CSS is clean, simple and compliant
  • Fix UI bugs and glitches
  • Learn about our build process (gulp, webpack) and help improve and tune it
  • Beyond feature work, you’ll contribute to our styleguide, you’ll stay up to date with broader trends, and you’re available for developers’ ad-hoc questions.
