Salary and Payment

Exodus UI/UX Designers start between 45k - 85k+ USD based on experience. All salaries are paid in Bitcoin. Although we understand everyone will not fit everything in the categories below, and some designers may be more technical with code while others may be more UI-focused with design, these are some general salary guidelines for this position based on your background and expertise.


45k :


You know your way around design tools like Sketch, Photoshop, Flinto, After Effects, Zeplin and Illustrator. You can take previously finished concepts and spin off iterations for marketing campaigns. You are excited to be surrounded by UI/UX experts from whom you can learn and soak up knowledge. You can’t wait to dive into finished Exodus design files to break them apart and understand how they work and the details of what makes them pixel-perfect. You know a limited amount of HTML and CSS and have not yet got into Javascript or coding in a deep sense.


60k :


You take all the skills at the 45k range and improve on them to be able to create your own designs from scratch. Your design has years of experience but is not yet at the level of a senior level design leader. You know how to make pixel perfect designs and have an extensive portfolio of client work you have completed in the past. You are comfortable working in After Effects and have a desire to improve all aspects of animation and user experience. Although you have never led a team you have worked with a team and started to see leadership qualities in yourself and are beginning to help others. At this level you also have deeper knowledge about HTML/CSS and Javascript interactions. You are familiar with GitHub and working with a team remotely to share your concepts and interactions.


85k+ :


You understand deep emotional aspects of UI and UX design and can lead peers to create an entire campaign from just words and end-goals given to you in a meeting. You will be able to go off and not only create entire user journeys but add value by understanding the core business value of what you are creating and how to generate additional features or product upgrades that add value to the customer. You know After Effects and have a deep understanding of animation and the emotional impact created by subtle animations. If you are more technical you have a deep understanding of HTML/CSS and Javascript and can work directly on GitHub to bring concepts in Sketch to life in responsive web design.
