UX/UI Designer & Manager

Join a creative team that’s as passionate about problem-solving as we are about design.

 

Position Overview

Calypso is seeking a candidate with both right and left brain tendencies — someone who can sit down and design a beautiful web interface, and then turn around, manage the development process, and take the project over the finish line. 

 

As a UX/UI designer, you will collaborate with creative and marketing teams to concept and strategize based on a client’s goals and target audience behavior/needs. You should have solid web design experience and understanding of responsive design principles. You will be ultimately responsible for creating both the information architecture (site map, wireframes) and the visual design for a given website project. You will be the conduit with developers, ensuring the design is implemented faithfully and lining up all of the technical necessities for launch. While you are not a developer, it is necessary that you can “speak developer” to a degree, and have a solid understanding of the relationship between the design and the creation of the end product.

 

On a daily basis, you will oversee the maintenance of our hosted client websites, acting as a channel of communication between the client and developer when necessary. In this role, you will serve as a resource for clients — when they reach out for support, you should be able to do basic initial troubleshooting, when possible, or elevate the issue to the right person.
