About the Role
We are looking for an Interactive Designer to enhance the Mavenlink customer experience through meaningful motion/interaction. We need your help in applying human-centered, enterprise-level experiences that are elegant, refined and seamless. We are designing solutions that help businesses connect, change the way people work and optimize processes that are complex, multi-dimensional and, in some cases, have never been done before. We work together to learn about these problems and create a solution that our users will love and is good for the business. We do this through talking to our users, collaboration, and constant iteration.

About Our Team
We are a small close-knit team working across multiple locations. We respect each other and augment our personal strengths by calling on the strengths of the team. We are passionate about product design and pay deep attention to self-improvement, company growth, and engaging with the design community through talks, participation in meetups and mentorship. As our first dedicated motion designer, you will not only help shape the future of our product, but also the design team.

About You

You are a digital choreographer
You believe interaction design is choreography. You strive to create interactions within the product that are light, seamless, and purposeful in the service of guiding, anticipating, informing the user. Authentic motion, micro interactions, stateful transitions; for you, the details are not the details… the details are the design.

We are giving life to empty space, our job is to be fluid and responsive to user’s needs and create an elegant and thoughtful space for conducting business.

You are a trailblazer
You know that any complexity has is simplicity buried within, and you are expert at uncovering it. You deeply understand current practices and discover better ways to solve the problem. You know how to instigate change and inspire people to try new things.

What distinguishes you is not what you know, but what you’re willing to learn.

You are mindfully adventurous
You are comfortable with ambiguity. You don’t rely solely on off-the-shelf patterns and solutions, but think critically about frameworks and models. You are willing to step outside of your comfort zone and apply critical thinking to a problem set within which you have no personal experience to draw from.

We solve challenging problems and know that you will never be bored at work.

You love to collaborate
You relish the idea of working on a design pair where you each focus on a part of the interaction, why and how for example, and challenge each other to fully evaluate all aspects of the design. You can take ideas from both internal stakeholders and users, evaluate them and distil them into pragmatic solutions to user needs. You enjoy leading design discussions and can explain ideas and methodology.

We recognize the need to throw on your headphones and go into focus mode, but value imperfection and the opportunity to discuss design before it’s fully fledged.

You have built real software
You have experience working on a product team and shipping products to the delight of thousands of happy users.
