Location: Budapest office
We are looking for a motivated and professional UX Designer to help us grow and enhance the best hosting service and site management dashboard on the market. This is an opportunity to work in a dynamically growing international company where what you do has a direct and immediate impact.
On the service level what we create is the Kinsta experience. For the design side this means we turn business problems into deliverable solutions even if it overarches different touchpoints of our service. Working on this usually means conducting stakeholder research, understanding the underlying technologies and constraints, mapping user journeys, and creating a solution that’s best and also feasible.
On the product level our core responsibility is continuously enhancing MyKinsta, our hosting management platform, and a variety of internal tools for our engineering and support team. On the design side we create UI design and prototypes, write UI copy, and provide functional specifications for the expected behavior and underlying logic of our designs. We work in close collaboration with the development team to ensure efficiency in delivery, but also iterate on our solutions as needed. Most of our UI is created with the help of our existing design system, so graphic designer skills are not needed for this job, but what you create from our toolkit is going to be a final UI solution for production.
What we do often involves rather technical details, but this should not intimidate you. We work with great engineers who are awesome at explaining technology so that we understand the problem at hand. Also, the essence of our work is problem solving and if you’re eager to create a cutting edge digital product, you’ll like what you find here.
We have plenty of fun at the office and you're welcome to try and beat our current scooter lap record. But we also know when it’s time to batten down the hatches and put in the amount of time and work a startup can sometimes require.
We expect everyone to be honest and forthright with their ideas and contributions. Day-to-day, we challenge each other to constantly raise the bar, encourage unconventional thinking to achieve innovative breakthroughs, and are passionately committed to surpassing our goals.
We're looking for people who can take the initiative and contribute ideas anywhere in the company. We promote continuous learning in a flexible work environment.
We will not discriminate and will take actions to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
