Senior UI/UX Designer
Today, mobile isn't limited to the phones in our pocket; mobile is on our wrist, around our neck, its the devices all over our home and work. TribalScale is here because we see where technology is moving and we want to leverage our deep mobile experience to further accelerate connecting the world.
You're excited about designing the connected world and want to join a team of ambitious, like-minded technologists. You're passionate about the intersection of design and technology and strive to explore new meaningful interactions between the physical and digital worlds. You want to have high impact, drive design innovation, and have a meaningful contribution to both our work environment and client work at TribalScale. You strive in fast-paced, collaborative environments and are able to quickly switch gears between client work, internal initiatives, and supporting your peers under minimal supervision.

You are able to meet with potential clients and understand their business goals, their users' desires, and are able to identify opportunities where design can bring their ideas to the next level while putting the needs of their users first.
