Design Technologists at Indeed

Design Technologists at Indeed serve a critical role accelerating the creation of breakthrough design, identifying opportunities, and bridging the Design and Engineering organizations.

Design Technologists build high-fidelity prototypes through the creation of tooling and code; identify and refine design concepts through technical and creative insight; define best practices in prototyping; and help transfer code and ideas between design and engineering.

About you.

The skills of a design technologist vary widely, but generally include:

  • Significant programming experience with JavaScript, Swift, Objective C, C#, or Java.
  • Experience with setting or improving build process to help streamline development (npm, yarn, webpack, gulp, grunt)
  • Expert level knowledge in at least one: HTML/CSS, UIKit, JavaScript Framework (React, AngularJS, Ember, Backbone), or NodeJS
  • Deep knowledge of industry standards for building user interface (accessibility, responsive design, grid, performance)
  • Understanding of the design process in modern software organizations (wireframes, clickthroughs, mocks, prototypes of all levels of fidelity)
  • A deep passion for both code and creativity
  • Familiarity with Photoshop, Sketch, Invision, Zeplin, or After Effects
  • Familiarity with usability testing 
  • Solid understanding of both design and programming principles
  • Experience with Git
  • Experience driving projects and collaboration within a team

This role specifically requires:

  • 6+ years coding in a design-heavy environment, either as a member of the design team or a Front-end Engineer working closely with Designers
  • Proven experience developing sophisticated user interfaces 
  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Design, or related field, or equivalent industry experience

To really catch our attention, you might offer:

  • A portfolio of creative, beautiful, and compelling user interface prototypes
  • Fluency in UI tech beyond a single platform
  • Video game development
  • Experience or strength in visual and / or interaction design

How is this different from a UI Engineer role?

UI Engineers take a finished design and productize it by making it fast, scaleable, maintainable, and secure. Design Technologists, on the other hand, work within the design team and design process to rapidly create multiple iterations of high-fidelity prototypes in order to validate or reject ideas quickly.

This is a great time to join the Indeed design team. We are growing in size, capabilities, and location and the right individual will find a huge array of opportunities for major impact.
