Lead UI/Web Designer
We’re a New York City-based venture-backed startup that has built a network of independent professionals / freelancers and an online platform that helps businesses connect with them. Whether you’re an employer who needs the best contract talent or an independent professional at the top of your game, Solvate’s platform makes it easy to build trusted, productive work relationships in the cloud.
We want to delight our users with inspired, seamless, user-friendly user interface design. We’re looking for a skilled UI designer to help us build online tools that facilitate work relationships in the cloud. Qualified candidates will have solid experience with UX and UI design, a passion for critical analysis and problem-solving, and the ability to create world-class interfaces that are equally beautiful and simple to use. You’ll be working with a tight-knit team to revolutionize the way people work together online, so a good dose of ambition, creativity, and humility is required. Solvate is growing aggressively, but also carefully. We’ll start you off on a part-time basis with the goal of transitioning you to full-time.
