Seeking a Front End Designer to both design and develop clear and accessible interfaces for the next version of the internet.
As a Protocol Labs Front End Designer, you will help us prototype, test, and ship interfaces and interactions for IPFS.
Besides creating maintainable, accessible open source design systems, products, and websites, you’ll also help promote front end design and engineering best practices (especially around performance, usability, and accessibility) in a part of the technology stack that doesn’t always get enough design love (protocols and networking). Why is this amazing? Because design is the killer app for crypto and the distributed web, and our mission is to improve humanity’s most important technology: the internet. We have a rare opportunity to redesign the core of how the Internet could work, and make its next version beautiful and easier to use.
You’ll also help build our design practice as we hire more visual designers, content designers, and user experience researchers, working with user experience researchers to participate in, and sometimes lead, usability testing and user-centered design, and working with engineers to develop interactive experiences. Your broad skill set will help bring all pieces together into prototypes and shipped code. Though this is a hybrid design-dev role, you’ll also have the deep experience of other specialists to draw on when needed.
Tell us about what you do! You don’t have to experience in 100% of these responsibilities, and we’d like to hear about your unique perspective on this role.
Some challenges we need your help with include:
Responsibility: Deliver high-quality interaction design for the web
Responsibility: Prototype and ship code
