The Engineered Innovation Group UI/UX Designer Remote · Full time

UI/UX Designer

Description

The Engineered Innovation Group is growing and looking for a UI/UX designer with experience in software as a service (SaaS). But, most importantly, we are searching for a candidate that empathizes with users and creates magic for users!


EIG is an innovation group that aims to help organizations create new products and services that drive growth and a competitive edge. We define and build product MVPs and help founders and business leaders build their internal product & engineering teams, too.


We have clients in the healthcare, SaaS, Web 3/Blockchain, and marketing industries.


Not only are we looking for a self-guided and energetic individual, but we are also looking for an individual that shares our company’s core values:


Trust

We build trusted relationships with our employees, contractors, customers, vendors, and partners. Trust encompasses delivering projects on time, quality work, and ensuring our customers’ proprietary information privacy and protection.


Insatiable Curiosity

We are incredibly curious, whether it is people, technologies, or academics. Our curiosity fuels our ability to discover possibilities and make them a reality.


Abundance

We believe that the world is full of opportunities, and even failures are opportunities. Our job is to identify the opportunities and leverage them to make a positive impact.


Diversity

Not only does science reveal that the crux of creativity is in having a team of diverse backgrounds and voices, but it is also the right thing to do. 


Measured Creativity

Contrary to popular belief, creativity is not free form. Creativity is served by free-form thinking and techniques, but we believe creativity is as much science as art.
