We are looking for a professional and motivated UX Designer to help our Marketing Design Team in building marketing products, amazing landing pages and enhance our website at Kinsta.com.

The ideal UX Designer knows the ins and outs of web usability, information architecture, UI design, knows how to learn and understand user needs, has great attention to detail, and is a positive person with a high level of empathy. You should be able to conceptualize and flesh out web interfaces, gather feedback, and collaborate with other team members while balancing user needs with business and technology, and always advocate for the user-centric approach.

Note that we have an amazing team of content creators and editors, illustrators and graphic designers, so what we expect from a UX Designer is rather user-focused insights, solution concepts and wireframe level UI, but anything else you can bring to the table is more than welcome and appreciated.

  • Strong sense and a methodical approach to usability
  • Capable with Figma for UI design and prototypes, and Miro for flows and virtual whiteboarding
  • Basic understanding of web development technologies (HTML, CSS, JS), meaning you know how a browser works and can play around with a page in the Inspector

  • Proactive, doer mentality, and hungry to learn
