Senior UX/Web Designer (Remote, U.S. or U.K.)

Cadmore Media is looking to fill a UX/Web Designer role who will be responsible for designing our fast-growing suite of products. The UX/Web Designer will be expected to work in tandem with our in-house team of developers to design and build new products as well as extend and maintain our existing product line.

We are seeking an experienced Designer who is well-versed in working directly with developers to build outstanding web-based user experiences, often around complex concepts. Candidates should bring substantial design skills to be able to provide beautiful designs for our frontends. Candidates should also have experience with creating unified designs for marketing and branding purposes. Graphic design is a must.

Candidates should be experienced with hands-on UI development using  HTML/CSS, able to work directly in a source control solution with existing code bases alongside developers, and able to work on graphic design for interface and image needs. Front end programming skills, such as Javascript, are not a must, as Cadmore employs a team of developers who can take a design and build what is needed, but front-end coding experience is a nice bonus to have. Having worked in a software development team and an understanding of software life cycles is also a bonus. Experience in providing Accessible solutions is also a big plus.

The UX/Web Designer will also assist the Marketing team with graphic design work to create marketing materials and help updating our brand visual identity.

Cadmore Media is a fast-growing start-up, and this position will be laying the groundwork for Cadmore’s continued expansion as its design needs grow.  This is an amazing time to join  Cadmore for opportunities in growth and advancement.
