UX / UI Engineer
ThreatBlockr, Inc., is in search of a UX / UI Engineer who truly enjoys team collaboration and takes great pride in making simple, straightforward, beautiful and elegant user interfaces with a primary focus on the user experience. This isn’t a job for you - it’s what you love.
Working alongside our existing product team, you will be responsible for all aspects of UX/UI development. You will leverage the modern Vuetify material design framework for Vue.js for your work. You truly embrace agile development, and with your familiarity with both Jira and git, you’ll be contributing to our UX/UI efforts in no time.

- Quality is important to you since you know that good UX is driven by quality, and as such, you enjoy working with QA engineers and understand the importance of making test automation simple for them with proper UX/UI elements

- You have no problem providing clear technical task level of effort estimation for your activities
- You have obtained a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and have chosen UX/UI as your career choice because you love helping roll out the best-possible user experience, evidenced by the UI you help to develop
- You have AT LEAST 3 years demonstrated experience developing UX/UI elements in the Vuetify material design framework for Vue.js. And with that experience, you’ve grown to love it and you never want to use anything else again
- You’ve used Jira and git as part of Agile development processes for at least two years
- You have a working knowledge of the linux command line and at least some familiarity with bash scripting
- You are a motivated team-player who truly enjoys working in a team environment where we’re all in it together
