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.
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.
