are a problem solver at heart.

On all teams at Maark (creative, engineering, and management) problem solving plays a large role in our day-to-day work. Our work is always more than how something looks or how something was built but more closely aligns with how we solved a client or user's problem. These problems are often complex and related to new businesses or industries that most designers and engineers have not had experiences with. Team members at Maark go above and beyond to learn about these problems and propose new and better solutions to our clients and their users.

are extremely organized and independent.

Maark is a small team of creators that work closely with clients to help them realize their vision. This calls for everyone at Maark to manage their time and be responsible for their work. The businesses we are working with and the problems we are solving can be very complex—independent management values help make that complexity approachable.

UX Engineer

Creative

Freelance, Boston MA

At Maark we believe that every interaction a user has with a product should be designed to work for them. That doesn't just take the combined efforts of user experience and visual designers but also the designers who build the interactions. UX Engineers bring designs to life and sweat every detail. They focus on adding animations and details to interfaces not to just delight users but to improve their understanding of what the UI is doing. At Maark we believe this role is extremely important to creating the best possible experience for our clients and their customers.

In this role you will work with the design team and develop front-end interfaces for the web. As part of the design process you will translate concepts into prototypes to test potential animations, interactions, design details, and feedback mechanisms as well as develop production ready HTML and CSS for handoff to the engineering team.

Maark is primarily a remote studio. Over the years we have found that people who are well organized and are comfortable managing their own personal time fit best. On top of that, the clients we work with range from large financial institutions to telecoms to hospitality to bio-engineering — we love learning new subjects and researching our clients' businesses and look to work with people who are just as naturally curious.

What you would work on...

  • Building production-ready front-end interfaces for the web

  • Translating concepts into working prototypes

  • Iterating on interactions, animations, feedback, and design details reaching for the best experience possible

You may be a fit for this role if you...

  • Have a BA/BS degree in Computer Science, HCI, Design, or equivalent

  • Have experience developing for web applications

  • Have experience creating interactive prototypes

  • Have an expert understanding of HTML, CSS (SASS/Less)

  • An understanding of BEM methodology

  • A basic understanding of common build tools like Webpack

  • Care for code quality, user experience, and design details

  • Have a strong appreciation for design, typography, and visual systems

  • Are very well organized and strong personal time management

  • Have a natural interest in researching and learning new subjects and our clients' businesses

Nice to have experience

  • A design portfolio showcasing a strong foundation in typography, visual systems, interaction design, visual design, and a design process

  • Have an understanding of JavaScript—specifically ES6 and React

  • Experience developing interfaces for iOS and/or Android
