Location: Work From Your Home for our All-Remote Company (USA only)
Are you a designer who gets excited about the idea of working on applications that are used by hundreds of thousands of users? Do you strive to deliver intuitive and user-centered solutions while writing error-free code?
If so, we’d like you to learn about Files.com!
At Files.com, Design is its own team within our main product team, because to us, the UI is the product.
Files.com is a cloud storage and file logistics service with over 1,500 paying business customers, including Target, Canonical, UPS, Leica, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.
Our company consists of USA-based remote employees who work from home.
We’re Bootstrapped, Profitable, and Growing
Our success comes from building a great service that solves problems for our customers, and our growth comes from expanding and improving our products as quickly as we can.
We believe that great products can only be built by great people. So we’re on a quest to find the smartest, most creative, and most motivated people, and create an environment in which they thrive.
We Are A Remote Company
You will work from home and have some flexibility to choose your working hours, allowing you to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to you.
You’ll take off 11 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 days of PTO for vacations. You’ll have the time to take longer vacations and have fun.
As our employees’ safety is a top priority, and we want to ensure we do not further spread COVID-19, we have paused all company travel. Once it is safe to resume travelling, you’ll travel to in-person meetings with your team and the entire company to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities around the US, including Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.
We think that these in-person meetings are vital to the success of a remote team.
About the Role
We are looking for an experienced and creative UI/UX designer to join our team.
As a UI/UX designer for our company, you will build and improve world class products and services by utilizing a blend of industry-standard and cutting-edge tools.
You will be responsible for evaluating feature requests and user interactions, and then crafting and implementing solutions from wireframing stages through to production-ready code.
You will work with the team to optimize workflows and tools.
Comprehensive understanding of CSS and an intuitive knowledge of how to use CSS to realize a design.
Portfolio of sample projects highlighting design for web based applications, mobile applications & consumer facing web sites and/or applications.
Experience working on heavily trafficked web and mobile applications.
We believe that the best Engineers tend to be polyglots with a wide variety of programming language experience. We don’t hire for specific programming language skills, but rather look for engineers who are fluent in several programming languages. We want our staff to be adaptable and ready to evolve to what’s next.
We believe that open-source only works if companies give back. If you work on any open-source projects during the course of your work at Files.com, you are encouraged to submit your improvements as a pull request back to the upstream project. And if you build something from scratch while working here that’s generic and not related to our core products, we want you to release that on GitHub too. We’ll also pay your travel costs to any conference where you can get a speaking gig.
We believe in building products that we actually use ourselves. We are our own toughest critics and we put all of our products through their paces every day.
