User Experience / Interaction Designer

Who We Are

Sparkart brings together a ruff & tuff crew of tinkerers and misfits whose unique talents, skills and worldly insights have created meaningful web experiences for hundreds of clients and thousands of users for over a decade. We’ve worked with incredible artists and brands including Bon Jovi, Carrie Underwood, Janet Jackson, Slipknot, The Killers, Young & Reckless and Microsoft. Sparkart Headquarters are located in Oakland, CA. In early 2011, Sparkart South found a home in Nashville, TN.

The Position

Sparkart’s been innovating and improving user interaction on the web for years and we’re looking for you to join us and further humanize user experiences within the Sparkart ecosystem. You’ll speak to clients, conduct user research, study mannerisms and apply findings to your designs. You’ll design wireframes and user flows, wow clients with high quality design, and develop them into exciting web experiences. Along the way, you’ll have the support of some of the smartest (and coolest) designers, engineers and account personnel to bring your ideas to fruition.

The Perks

Medical Coverage: You get full medical, dental and vision

Work Schedule: We don’t have regular hours, just get the work done

Flexible Workplace: Find yourself a cute café or park (with wifi) to work from!

Tickets to Events: Our clients shower us with tickets and swag!

What we’re looking for

User Experience Design: thinking about the user, as a user, for the user. You break apart complex ideas into simpler solutions through wireframes, user flows and site maps

Visual Design: a degree in graphic design, interaction design or digital media. Typography is your design porn

Front-End Development: we’re talking HTML/CSS/Javascript. Keeping abreast of current and evolving web standards and frameworks (jQuery/Less) is a big plus

Communication: the kind that comfortably converses abstract thoughts, clear ideas and constructive feedback with team members and clients

Leadership: managing projects, teams, working well under pressure with deadlines set to yesterday
