CoachUp is looking for a talented UX/UI designer who wants to be part of a small team going after a huge opportunity. As the Lead UX/UI designer, you will collaborate closely with product, engineering and management to help define the product vision, user experience, site flow and overall site feel. You will be responsible for sketching, wireframing and prototyping the user experience. You will transform these ideas into mockups for the engineering team and develop design components, as necessary. You will innovate and captivate by refining, evolving, and creating new features to improve the usability and functionality of our software applications. We're developing at a fast pace and are constantly iterating and pushing releases into production. There will never be a single boring day at CoachUp!

  • Expertise with design tools such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, etc.

  • Ability to deliver cross-browser compatibility
  • Experience in an Agile software development environment in a web context
