UX / Front End Intern
Product Team - Are you a Dynamite Designer, Experience Expert or Usability Guru? Our product is brand new to the marketplace. It helps small businesses get discovered. It's guaranteed. And it's working. If you've got a knack for improving products and creating amazing user experiences, we want to hear from you. This is a great opportunity for someone who has strong intuition, innate curiosity, and proven design chops. Bonus points if you can code (Bootstrap and CSS).
You'll be responsible for recruiting small business owners and customers for weekly user testing. You'll manage craigslist ads, post to social media, and if needed make cold calls to get testers. During the sessions, you'll be responsible for transcribing interviews with the goal of capturing the conversation and the nuance (body language, hesitations, level of comfort, etc.) of the respondents' answers objectively and without confirmation bias.
If you want to dive deeper into product experience, you'll have an opportunity to share ideas and participate in the evolution of our product design. Take the insights gathered and turn them into comps and eventually, front end code.
Test. Design. Code. Repeat.
