UX Designer

Kinsta is a premium managed WordPress hosting provider designed for all types of businesses, small or large. We're the first to be exclusively powered by Google Cloud Platform while utilizing an isolated container system. We believe that constant availability and an outstanding user experience are a must. That’s why we always utilize the latest software and most advanced technology to power our infrastructure.

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.


  • 3 years experience working as a UX designer, which you can showcase with a portfolio or case study
  • Familiar with human-centered product design principles
  • Hands-on experience working through all steps of the design thinking workflow: problem definition, ideation, creating UI, prototyping (research is a plus)
  • Capable with the tools we use: Sketch for UI design, InVision for prototypes, Zeplin for UI handover, Miro for flows and virtual whiteboards, and non-digital methods in the war room
  • 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
  • Attention to detail balanced with a good sense for priorities
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills including collaborating with developers, coordinating with stakeholders, and articulating design decisions
  • High level of English in speaking and writing
  • Proactive, doer mentality, and hungry to learn


  • Work experience in an agile environment on a digital product
  • Work experience with a complex design system
  • UX research experience: collect and synthesize information, draw conclusions, and present findings
  • Experience with WordPress on a user or even a technical level


  • We offer a relaxed working environment where everyone can work in peace
  • Everyone has a voice in the process of creating our solutions
  • We have an amazing team with a collaborative and iterative workflow, so you never work in a vacuum as a designer
  • Our dog-friendly office is in the heart of Budapest’s historic district
  • Work hours are flexible and we allow working from home when necessary
