Senior UI Designer
GridRival is the world's first fantasy sports platform built exclusively by and for motorsports fans. Our first-to-market application engages race fans through a valuable and unique fusion of fantasy style gaming, motorsports content, and built-in social functionality. Our vision is to be “the home screen for race fans” for those that use our application.
GridRival is looking for a talented Sr. User Interface Designer to help lead the continued growth and user experience of our mobile and web applications. If you’re the right fit for this role, you’re the type of individual who seeks out, and thrives in fast-paced startup environments and has a natural enthusiasm when it comes to learning and taking on new challenges.
You will likely have extensive experience planning, designing, prototyping and testing native mobile software applications. You will need to work productively on your own and as part of a completely remote team in the beginning. You’ll need to share your work early and often, and solicit feedback from both users and colleagues to help elevate your designs. If you have experience working on consumer facing products, that’s a bonus but not a requirement.
Ultimately, we care most about your passion and enthusiasm to learn and contribute to our vision. If you’d like to work with a motivated product team, produce great design work, and work in an engaging field, but you don’t fit the exact description, apply anyways! Show us what you’ve been working on and let us know why you’d be a great fit.
