BriteCore: UI/UX Designer

Authentic Jobs - Full Stream -

Full-time

(Springfield, MO (Remote Work Encouraged))

We are hiring for a mid-level UI/UX designer who is able to help us take complex workflows and distill them into a thoughtful experience for people using our app.

 

This position is on our growing design team, which works closely with our development teams as part of an iterative design process. You would have an important role in helping us redesign key parts of our app UI, and would also be part of an overall effort to create and standardize our design system.

 

The kind of work we do

BriteCore is essentially a CMS for insurance companies. They use it to manage all aspects of their business, including tracking policies, managing contacts and handling claims.

 

This means our users typically see our app more as a business tool like Microsoft Word or Google Sheets than a website (even though it is completely a web-based app). They also are using BriteCore for several hours every day, and are concerned with doing things quickly and efficiently. This, along with the complicated nature of insurance, means we deal with some complex workflows, and try to set ourselves apart from our competitors with a smooth UX that helps them navigate these tough processes.

 

What you might be doing

We’re looking for a team member who thinks critically about user experience, and is able to see it through with a polished interface. This means you might do things like:

- Create an aesthetically pleasing, on brand UI for a new or existing component in our design system.

- Ask in-depth questions to understand a process, and back up decisions with research and user tests.

- Iterate on designs using a variety of techniques, such as sketches, workflow diagrams and high-fidelity mockups

 

What it is like to work here

BriteCore is a remote-first company — even employees who live in our home city of Springfield, MO usually work from home! And most of the people you will work with are scattered across the US and the globe. This means that remote team members are just as much part of the company as local employees. We also allow a lot of flexibility in terms of time off. In return, we expect all of our employees to be productive and accountable, which means you'll work alongside a great, dedicated team.

Responsibilities
  • Create effective and beautiful interfaces that solve our user's problems

  • Iterate and improve on existing parts of the app

  • Inform design decisions with data, user testing

  • Communicate clearly

  • Welcome feedback and collaboration

  • Be friendly, confident, and patient with others

  • Self-direct

  • Stay up on industry best practices and trends

Technologies we use
  • Sketch, Balsamiq, or other wireframing tools

  • Invision

  • Adobe Creative Suite

  • HTML5

  • SCSS, PostCSS

  • GitHub

  • Command Line (previous experience a plus, but not required)

Benefits and Compensation
  • $40k-$60k based on experience and proven performance

  • Benefit from working alongside and observing a team of world-class engineers and designers

  • Comprehensive health insurance coverage including medical, dental, and vision

  • Flexible schedule

  • Relaxed work environment

  • Remote work

  • Flexible learning time — explore your ideas and new technologies on the clock

More about the company

 

At BriteCore, we build gorgeous, scalable, and usable cloud-based insurance software. This is a company where design is deeply valued and has a seat at the table. We have created a team of top performers developing modern systems for the insurance industry. Our team enjoys working together, and takes tremendous pride and ownership in our platform. The environment is progressive – we are building a modular design system for use across all of our products. We love great technology and design and it shows in every aspect of our product. Our team enjoys a flexible, balanced, and stimulating environment. We promote a high quality of life for our employees by allowing them to choose their own schedule and location. Bring creativity, focus, and productivity to your job, and enjoy 40 hour work weeks, flexible paid time off, and remote work.

Job Perks: - Flexible Hours - 3+ weeks Paid Time Off - Competitive Compensation - Comprehensive Health Insurance - Most employees work remotely - Relaxed Work Environment - Explore ideas, new technologies on the clock - Annually attend a conference of your choice - Work alongside talented designers & developers

  • Passionate. We love solving problems and we enjoy working hard to deliver elegant solutions that delight our customers.
  • People Smart. You need the ability to interact with a broad spectrum of people, in a way that’s assertive, empathetic, and motivating.

A little about us and our culture:

  • Our employee retention is freakishly high. We love our people and they love working here. 
  • We have zero sales people. We've found that when you do good work and treat customers right, they'll tell others about you. Nearly our entire customer base has come from word-of-mouth.
  • Over half of our company is remote and the rest work locally in our beautiful office in Carlsbad, California.
  • We're fully bootstrapped and profitable. There are no investors or equity firms to answer to—we answer only to our customers, as we earn their subscription dollars every month.
  • Our designers and developers are at the top of their game. We speak at conferences, are committed to open source, and take active steps to sharpen our skills.
  • We take work-life balance seriously. We don't work late and enjoy paid Fridays off in the summer. A few times a year, we take two "free weeks" where everyone works on whatever they want.

Lastly, we believe the strongest teams are made up of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences, and we are committed to cultivating that diversity here at Planning Center. We are ready for the ongoing work that goes into building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do your best work.
