Union crate careers

User Experience(UX) Designer

September 11th, 2019
We’re a diverse, tight-knit team of CPG veterans, rebels, and futurists who believe the future of supply chain will be driven by Union Crate. We value accountability, kindness, GIFs, collaboration, hard work, coffee, and snacks.

Is this for you?

Over the past 10 years, the consumer goods supply chain has gone through a massive shift. Current legacy systems cannot interpret the large volume and variety of consumer demand data that is being generated daily. If you want to be part of building an intelligent platform that controls how goods move through the world then this is the position for you!

Who we are

Union Crate is modular, all-in-one supply chain platform that uses artificial intelligence to help consumer goods companies simplify demand planning and complex operational processes.

What we need

Union Crate is looking for a UX Designer to improve our current interface and take new products from concept through wire-framing, interactive prototypes, user testing, to hand-off for development. The ideal candidate has experience leading user research and testing activities, alongside a passion for data visualization.

  • - Translate chosen solutions into pixel-perfect visual designs in sketch.
  • - Iterate quickly and hand off designs to developers smoothly and informatively.
  • - Rigorously document all work, learnings, feedback, successes and failures.
  • - Collaborate with the team on current development, future features and brainstorming sessions.

Requirements

  • - Fluency in design software such as Adobe CS and UX tools such as Sketch.
  • - Familiarity with HTML5, CSS3, responsive design, and potential front-end development frameworks.
  • - Experience researching, conceiving, wire-framing, sketching, prototyping, and mocking up interfaces for desktop and web/mobile applications.
  • - Good version control practices and deep understanding of user-centered design and testing methodologies.
  • - Holistic, iterative, lean approach to product and ability to juggle multiple spinning plates and dynamically re-prioritize.
  • - Ability to work both independently and in collaboration with a small adaptive team.

Nice to have
