User Experience Designer

Description

Overview

Hydraulx Vancouver is looking for a talented UX/UI designer who wants the opportunity to shape products from start to finish.
We are a visual effects studio with credits on big-budget feature films. We want someone interested in crafting the user experience of project management and digital asset tracking tools that don’t look as boring as they sound. We believe that enterprise-quality tools don’t have to look like Word ’98. Clean, flat and intuitive, yet powerfuland flexible. Working side-by-side with visual effects artists (i.e. our users), you’ll have access to the perfect sample audience for usability and A/B testing.
This position is tailor-made for an artist with a techie side – someone who can create beautiful, pixel-perfect designs and then implement them with modern web technologies (we’re talking HTML5 + SASS… and if you can whip up a reusable AngularJS directive, well, you’re our kinda designer). But we do actually want more than that… we want someone who is interested in building things from scratch, watching features they pitched turn into mockups they made and final interfaces they coded. If you like feeling a sense of ownership in your work, read on.

As an artist:

1. Have a kick-ass portfolio – web and mobile design, of course… but we’d love to see illustrations, sketches and doodles as well.
2. Have a deep understanding of common design patterns for the web… not that you’ll have to use them, but you can’t build new ways to interact unless you know the old ones.
3. Know how artists work… the products we build are used every day by visual effects artist – our job is to make their job easier.

As a web designer:

1. Experience conducting usability and A/B tests.
2. Vanilla CSS makes you scream – SASS/LESS all the way (ZURB Foundation? yes please.)
3. Care about writing clean, semantic HTML. You know the right place for an

As a person:

1. Have approximately 2 years of UI/UX design experience (or at least a portfolio that makes it LOOK like you do).
2. Have an interest in movies, visual effects and learning how both are made.
3. Be cool. You’re going to help establish the culture – if you have good ideas on how to manage a product, we’ll be listening.

We want a designer who is looking for a place where their creative ideas will be embraced, where they can help shape the user experience of a new product and get in on the ground floor. We look forward to hearing from you!

Must be a current BC resident, or hold a current work permit.
