The ideal person is an exceptionally talented hands-on UX and Interaction Designer. We work as an integrated product design team to envision, create, craft and deliver next generation experiences.


We know that an organization’s culture is critical to your decision to take a new position, so here’s some information about our company.

Most importantly, we want you to know that we value authenticity. So, whether it’s in your cover letter, in your interview, on the job, or at a team event, we want you to be yourself. We’re a diverse team with a host of different backgrounds and there’s always room for someone who brings something new to the table. Especially if that thing is home baking. We love home baking.

Once you’re here, we want you to love what you do, to be and feel successful and to be a part of our team for a long, long time. That’s why we’re striving to be the best place you’ve ever worked. Our team is incredibly energized, team members at all levels are supportive and accessible and everyone is focused on delivering for our clients and expanding our business.

That’s the truth.

For four years in a row, Chaordix has been on the WorldBlu List of the World’s Most Democratic Workplaces. Your voice matters here.

At Chaordix, we help each other out. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We laugh a lot. We work in a funky building. We go out as a group. We don’t act like jerks. We have a kitchen stocked with snacks. We have a fridge stocked with beer. We give back to our community. We debate and discuss. We find better ways to do smarter things.

At Chaordix, we’re building this business together. We’re looking for great people to join us.

  • Own the success or failure of the User Experience
  • Communicate, specify and describe your designs to researchers, developers, testers, PMs, senior leadership and other designers without ambiguity and within deadlines


  • Understanding of all of facets of the design process, and exceptionally talented and skilled in at least one major area (e.g. web software workflow design, or interaction and information architecture design)

  • Passion about data and data visualizations a plus!
