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 experiments through the creation of tooling and code; identify and refine design concepts through technical and creative insight; define best practices in technology; and help transfer code and ideas between design and engineering.
The skills of a design technologist vary widely, but generally include:
Experience with industry standards for building user interface (accessibility, responsive design, grid, performance)
Understanding the design process in a 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
Proficiency with Git
This role specifically requires:
5+ years coding in a design-heavy environment, either as a member of the design team or a Front-end Engineer working closely with Designers
A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Design, or related field, or equivalent industry experience
Experience developing sophisticated UI prototypes
Strong communication and problem-solving skills
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 in visual and/or interaction design
How is this different from a UX Developer role?
UX Developers take a finished design and productize it by making it fast, scalable, 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.
