Lofty is Hiring a Senior UX/UI Designer
We are looking for a trustworthy, focused, communicative team member to help us build our design team. This position will be responsible for both internal and client facing design research and implementation projects.
The ideal candidate would be elastic and able to balance a portfolio of design workshops and concepting for our new client projects, interface design support on ongoing projects, and internal support with our marketing initiatives (interactive case studies for our websites, etc).
If you like an exciting hybrid-remote workplace with passionate client-success-focused doers who deliver quality work to help our clients succeed, then this is the job for you.
You’ll be the first full time design team member at Lofty, helping us bootstrap a creative department and establish our design voice. Ultimately this position has the opportunity to progress into a Creative Director role as our company grows over the next 12-18 months.
Can you work with our clients to translate their business problems into great software?
Clients at Lofty start in our strategic discovery process, Ignition. During Ignition, our team takes the client through a series of structured exercises, business model canvasses, customer interviews, and more to propose the development of a software tool targeting their needs. A UX/UI Designer at Lofty feels comfortable participating heavily in these processes and advocating strongly for the User while balancing the needs of the business.
Do you have experience designing interfaces for data heavy applications?
We like to tell our customers that Lofty is not a Data Science team–that’s their job. The team at Lofty, however, is highly Data Science compatible. Our ideal customers have world-class expertise in their business domains and are able to attract high quality experts and scientists to their teams. These teams produce industry-changing insights, but our job is to help turn those processes into real world, usable software that you don’t have to be a scientist to use! This means the team at Lofty is building lots of data visualization, dashboarding, and data exploration work.
Are you capable of thriving on a remote hybrid team?
While the majority of our leadership team is located in Northwest Arkansas our company is fully remote. That means there often won’t be anyone standing over your shoulder watching you work (not that we ever did that when we did have an office, but you get the point). Some experience with the rhythm and focus needed for remote work is desirable for this position, but not required. As much of your time will be spent interfacing with the clients and our Product Owners, this position does require an availability of 9-5 central. There will be some minimal travel involved, we have a few conferences and in-person company wide meetings that you will need to attend, but it’ll be fun, we promise.
