The Job

UI/UX Designers create interactive wireframes based on documentation like an SRS (Software Requirements Specification), and have an intuitive grasp of user behaviour.

They also need to take and provide constructive criticism on their designs and ideas.

Generating design assets for our development teams is a large part of the UI/UX Designer’s role. They have a grasp of the difference between platform design principles, as well as working with multiple file types.
