Hiya! We’re Radical I/O, a people-first enterprise software development consultancy and lab that develops technology with purpose. We work with cities and organizations to develop meaningful, data-driven solutions that provide people with easy access to information, when and where they need it.
We're on the lookout for a Senior UI/UX Designer with experience researching, solutioning, and designing mobile and web apps with functional and delightful features that balance addressing our clients’ requirements with their customers’ expectations. You will be the sole designer who is responsible for all design activities and artifacts of new native iOS & Android mobile apps (as companions to an existing web app) that will be distributed to thousands of users in BC within the civic/public good space. We may also ask for your design help on the related responsive web app from time-to-time.
To be successful in this role, you should be highly skilled with design and collaboration software, and flows, wireframes, and prototyping tools, as well ideally have group (clients and/or users) facilitation and user research experience. You should also strive to understand what users need to accomplish within the apps. As a senior member of the team, you are able to provide design solutions for complex problems, accomplish work quickly, and are there for your teammates when they need help. Throughout the project, you’ll be working closely with the project manager/product owner (particularly for design iterations and approvals on behalf of our customer), business analyst, solutions architect, software engineers, and testers.
We are hiring a senior UI/UX designer for a full-time, 3 months+ contract to start in June, and most likely moving to freelance/part-time/ad-hoc hours after that (if amenable) in order to support any change requests or unknowns that may occur. You will be working remotely from within Canada, and maximum working hours per week are 35-45 (40 on average). We will be shortlisting candidates within the next 1-2 weeks, with most phone screens and interviews taking place fairly quickly before the end of April, and further interviews taking place in May if needed.
You'll do well in this role if you:
We also usually look for people who:
Even if we don't contact you for an interview right away, we often have projects start fairly quickly with new clients, so we will always look through our applicant database first. We'd also love to keep a small roster of people we trust and who we can easily reach out to during these times.
THE OTHER STUFF
This is a remote, work-from-home opportunity, and there is the possibility for the role to be extended or other projects to follow after this one. We prefer to hire folks from the Greater Vancouver Area, then BC and AB in general so we can communicate more in real-time. However, we will also consider other senior engineers from within Canada based on your availability, flexibility to work with overlapping Pacific Time, and your skillset.
As this is a contract, we generally hire self-employed or incorporated people who are comfortable with invoicing for their work. However, for those who are not yet set up in this way, and are employees perhaps looking for temporary roles during this unprecedented pandemic time period, we are also able to put the successful candidate on our payroll as a limited-term, hourly employee. When applying, please select which situation applies to you (we are equally open to either situation).
Please note that due to our work with Canadian municipalities (and related clients) and their data and privacy restrictions, we can only hire people who currently live in Canada and are authorized to work full-time in Canada for any employer, including designers who are in Canada on valid working holiday visas and post-graduate work permits.
Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster. Do not contact us with unsolicited services or offers.
