Front-end Designer

Careers: Front-end / Interaction Designer

Careers

We’re looking for the people who are aware that design is more than aesthetics, but also for someone who knows what's usable and doable from the development point of view. Come, join us!

Are you a skilled Front-end developer with a strong focus on user interface and interaction design?

Here at Devana Technologies, we’re well aware how important the intertwined relationship of design and development is for all the things we’re doing. We need someone who will bridge that gap; someone who loves sharpening his skills in new front-end technologies, but also dedicates time to responsive design techniques, pixel perfect design implementation, and thoughtful interactions.

We’re looking for people who are aware that design is more than simple aesthetics and who know what’s usable and doable from the development point of view; someone with experience as both front-end developer and user interface designer, who knows what makes the customers happy.

Are we hunting for unicorns? Since our hiring process is very specific and built within our company for a few years already, the candidate is required to have a broader area of product design and development expertise.

We call it Front-end Designers, but you can find them in various organisations doing jobs of Interaction Designers, UX Developers or even just simple – Front-end Developers.
