Who You Are

If you told me you live for pixel perfection, I wouldn’t be surprised. You are a passionate and ambitious UX/UI designer who is comfortable working in a space where problems and solutions are not well defined. In fact, you embrace rapid prototyping to generate numerous potential solutions to a problem. You can cope with change, shift gears comfortably, and make decisions without having the total picture. Your precise attention to detail allows you to understand complex systems and processes, both in software and in the real world. Sometimes, you feel like the champion of usability and user-centered design! Not only do you dive deep into customer pain points, but you advocate and invent on behalf of them without a personal attachment to any particular idea. 


What You’ll Be Doing on the Maestro Team

  • Requirement gathering, ideating, creating, and maintaining concepts to communicate potential solutions
  • Transform abstract ideas into tangible prototypes by balancing user stories, technical constraints, and business objectives to inform your solution
  • Craft beautiful UI that integrates both convention and design trends
  • Advocate for collaborative design, design thinking, and an inclusive UX process from the very start of a project lifecycle
  • Create deliverables to communicate your design work including sketches, wireframes, low-fi concepts, specifications, and high-fi prototypes
  • Maintain and organize Sketch files and InVision projects to ensure consistency across UI components and projects
  • Continually give and solicit UX and UI feedback from others across a wide-range of disciplines to achieve a rich perspective
  • Work closely with developers to take an idea from concept to implementation
  • Properly document design decisions and provide dev-ready assets
  • Work with product owners and key stakeholders to brainstorm and identify opportunities for improving the overall user experience
  • Work with a team of designers, strategists, developers, and business stakeholders from concept to completion to craft meaningful experiences for our users through iterative design


Talents We’re Looking For

  • Bachelor’s degree in HCI, Product Design, Graphic Design, or related studies
  • Strong portfolio with work samples showcasing expertise in user experience design, interface design, creativity and aesthetics, and depth of thought
  • Strong written, visual, and verbal communication skills to collaborate with team members and project stakeholders
  • Ability to work collaboratively, remain open to feedback, and know how and when to defend design decisions
  • Experience working across organizational boundaries to define, manage, and prioritize work
  • Proficiency with design tools such as Sketch and InVision
  • Bonus if you’ve got 1+ years of related work experience


The Perks

  • Base salary depends on experience and talent level
  • Compensation package that includes medical and dental insurance
  • Work/life balance. Life happens, and here you have the time and freedom to deal with it
  • Endless snacks for creative thought. Maestro’s known for spoiling the team

Regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or if you’re parenting the next generation of innovators, we firmly believe that our work is at its best when everyone feels free to be their most authentic self.
