A UI/UX designer helps build and enhance SaaS web and mobile products for dental offices and dental groups. The designer seeks to strike the balance between UI and UX by understanding the usability for end-users, the business context, and the expectations of various stakeholders. The designer creates user interfaces that meet user requirements and also offer an intuitive and user-friendly experience. To be successful, the designer will need to be self-motivated, a critical thinker, be able to take high-level direction, communicate clearly, gain consensus, and drive to completion in a very fast paced environment.

A UI/UX designer doesn’t shy away from learning something new or experimenting to find the right solution. A friendly, hard-working, positive person with a true passion for solving customer problems will fit in well with our dynamic team.

This is a hybrid role working out of either our Newport Beach, CA, Phoenix, AZ or Seattle, WA offices 1x/ week.
