Are you looking to work on apps and features that actually ship, and take ownership of your work within a fast-paced business environment—with growth potential—all from the comfort of home?
MartianCraft works closely with enterprise clients to design unique business-focused applications used every day. Everything from focused financial applications to job and task specific apps used by people on job sites every day.
We are currently looking for designers to join our growing team. They will assist in designing new features and enhancements for a suite of existing apps as well. They will also work with, and help develop, a design system.
We’re looking for someone who can get up to speed quickly and familiarize themselves with the business goals of the organizations we work with, and how those guide product direction.
You’ll get to know these apps deeply, and will use our pattern libraries to design rapid prototypes and solve difficult problems for existing apps. You’ll accomplish this with close direction from the team, and collaboration with the client.
You’ll quickly grow to understand the business and the apps to identify when new components need to be added to the system based on business problems. You will work with leadership to make regular contributions to new or bespoke UI solutions.
You’ll work with our engineering team to facilitate smooth handoff.
