Job Description

We are searching for a colleague that, together with our ux designer, can beautify our web apps. Your focus will be on interactions, process, flow, and overall experience for the user of our applications.

It would be great if you command HTML and CSS, and perhaps JavaScript, well enough so that you can directly and efficiently contribute to the production code, and quickly build realistic mockups, but that’s not a must.

As a UX designer with Avidity you be responsible both for the visual and functional aspects of creating user interfaces. Knowledge of front-end technologies and their capabilities is important, as you will be working closely to developers.

You will have direct contact with the projects' stakeholders, so great communication skills as well as fluency in English will be important.

Avidity builds web applications primarily for Swedish clients. We write our frond-end using modern techniques using whatever framework fits each project best. We focus our knowledge on the core technologies themselves rather than a particular framework.

You’ll be working with a skilled team of developers, sysadmins and UI experts in Porto Alegre, in addition to a dev team at clients' offices overseas.

As a UX designer, you should be proficient in a variety of skills, ranging from UI design principals to web technologies.

  • Main tasks
