    As a Web Designer you are developing on the most visible parts of our products. You will work with both Marketing and Engineering to provide front-facing code with always a strong focus on using cutting edge technology with a quality acumen.

    – Felix Häusler, CEO

    Working at Grape

    We value high code quality in terms of readability, reusability and maintainabilty the same way we value speed and efficiency of development. We prefer composition over inheritance, functional over object oriented.


    Your development tasks consist 50% of chat client webdesign, 30% of templating and design on landing pages, blogs, etc. and 20% of conceptual work, illustration and mockuping.


    We value participation in open source. We are not just using open source projects, we try to give something back. We encourage developers to release reusable parts of their code under an open source license. You can spend up to 20% of your working time on open source projects we use.

    • Stylus CSS compilers

    • Github

    • Babel (ES2015, stage-0)

    • Webpack

    • React and Redux

    • Electron

    • JSS

    • react-virtualized

    • Format.JS

    What we are looking for

    You’ll work closely with all different team members at Grape to speed up our front-end development to build new features and products. You will be shipping code to thousands of active users every day.

    Our engineers are also very comfortable working directly with customers to tackle bugs and answer tricky support questions. It’s important to write code with customers in mind so that we can provide the best experience possible with Grape.

    POSITION OVERVIEW

    The space where impossibility intersects reality; where companies speed beyond norms and realize an exploded potential; where light filters out darkness, and machine intelligence makes everything about business smarter.   Hypergiant is rapidly growing and is in search for bright & creative minds who not only think outside a box, but don’t believe a box exists.  If you’ve ever been told you are a right-brain / left-brain individual, then we should chat.

    WHAT WE'D LIKE TO SEE

    Hypergiant is rapidly growing and is in search of a client-facing Senior Visual Designer to help design and brand AI-driven solutions for the enterprise. Ideally, you have amassed deep experience at a high-intensity agency, software development shop, or in-house at a SaaS startup. A broad understanding of how AI would improve a large, Fortune 500 company’s business is necessary.

    YOUR DAY-TO-DAY

    You’re a self-motivated individual who loves to solve big problems from a human-centered design perspective. You’re more than capable of holding your own in conversations about Artificial Intelligence, technology, Agile development, and more, but you are particularly inclined towards improving the holistic experience for people. You do your homework on the client, advances in their industry, and go above and beyond to forge relationships with key decision-makers.

    WHAT YOU'LL GET

    YOU WANT TO WIN. It could be a small mom & pop oil and gas company or a large fashion brand based out of NYC, but you always enter and exit the room with confidence, new friends, and new opportunities for Hypergiant to pursue.

     What does the future of the internet look like?

    More than just designing websites, how do you craft a system that enables and inspires others to build their own sites?

    About the role

    This is a role for someone who relishes a systems-level perspective; who doesn’t just work well with constraints but who wants to define those constraints.

    As an early member of the team, you will have the opportunity to define the foundation of our product, and the culture of our design team.

    Requirements

    • You think big, but start small

    • You have experience crafting mobile tools

    • You have a deep understanding of iOS interaction patterns

    • You've seen a product through multiple iterations/life cycles, and can incorporate insights back into future iterations.

    • You possess a keen eye for beautiful, usable interface.

    • You strive to learn more, ask questions, and grow both professionally and personally.

    • Above all else, you should be able to think deeply about what makes a design work—or not— and clearly articulate why to everyone involved

    Bonus points:

    • you are comfortable conducting user testing

    • you have motion design experience, and know when to employ interactive prototypes as part of the design process

    • you’re a Universe user :)

      To apply, send us an email with a note about yourself and a link to your portfolio or relevant work sample. 👇

    We encourage applicants from any and all backgrounds, and are committed to ensuring our team supports a range of voices and perspectives.

    Universe is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
