onPeak
is looking for a UX Designer. Someone who loves designing interfaces and
behaviors — maybe even too much. Someone who is smart, hungry and humble to
the core. Someone who wants to be pushed by a team and relishes the chance to
defend their design choices in front of stakeholders. Someone who fights for
simple elegant solutions in a complex world. We are a small, award winning
development team who happen to love what we do. We fight for transparency,
clarity and sound implementations. We believe the best education is the person
sitting next to you. We are looking for someone to help us push our envelope.
Why
work at onPeak?
onPeak
is a leading provider of event hotel-booking technologies powered by our
proprietary and award winning web applications (see awards here). We work in a
super casual environment with half-day Fridays in the summer, flexible
schedules and good people. Most importantly, we insist on working on cool stuff
and dreaming big (see for yourself).
