UX/UI Engineer

Amazing form meets efficient function

Location: Austin, TX

Salary: $75,000 - $120,000 a year

Job Type: Full-time (in-office)


Full Job Description

We are looking for a savvy and seasoned UX/UI engineer here in Austin to work alongside the founders. The successful recruit will work hand in glove with the CTO and on a growing technical team. The upside potential is extremely large for the right candidate in terms of both cash compensation and equity. This is no mere job. It requires a founder’s caring and curious mentality, and a burning desire to ship code to shape the future of decentralized finance.

Our product is Vertalo, a blockchain-based cap table critical to the future of digital investment. Think of a traditional cap table reimagined for the emerging tokenized asset sector (meaning soon, all private assets). Our focus on digital assets and secondary liquidity sets us apart from larger incumbents. All this equates to a huge market and huge growth potential for our team. There are extensive near-term opportunities and longer-term exit scenarios for our company.

You will be focusing on:

  • Designing new UX and UI in a fast-paced environment
  • Prototyping new product and reporting interfaces
  • Creating white-label-ready designs
  • Iterating and simplifying UX across the platform

This is not a remote position. You will be required to work out of our offices here in Austin, TX.

Our stack:

  • React (latest version)
  • GraphQL
  • Node.js
  • OpenResty
  • PostgreSQL
  • AWS (multiple services)
  • Terraform/Terragrunt
  • Ethereum, Tezos (and more chains to come)
  • FreeBSD
  • Craft CMS

About you:

  • High school diploma or equivalent
  • Authorized to work in the U.S.
  • 2+ years professional experience in UX/UI design
  • Proficient at:
    • Iterative design
    • Agile development
    • HTML/CSS
    • Freehand and tool-based prototyping
  • Basic JavaScript, usability testing and brand design a plus
  • Ambitious - you are looking specifically for a startup opportunity and the chance to hit it big
  • Self-starting - you’re OK with some ambiguity and pushing until you figure things out
  • Great at quickly making it work - we iterate fast and you need to be able to keep up
  • Hungry - you’re a missionary, not a mercenary

Benefits:

  • Health/Dental/Vision insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Paid time off
  • Free lunch provided every day
  • Options for sitting or electronic standing desk
  • Virtually any laptop/monitor configuration you wish
  • Employee assistance program
  • Flexible spending account (FSA)
  • Fried-chicken Fridays!
