As a UI Designer at InteraXon, you are a visual thinker who merges skills in visual design with front-end development to create beautiful and engaging interactions. You are passionate about creating clean usable interfaces, prototyping clever animated micro-interactions, and articulating complex data through simple visualizations.
While you do tend to get caught up in excitement around chasing your visual ideas, you are just as excited about the prospect of watching people engage with the experiences you create. When things don’t work as expected, you quickly question your assumptions and start work on alternative designs to solve the problem.
