You’re proud of your work, and you believe in your vision. You have a client-focused approach to design, and you’re not satisfied until the product delivers a user experience the competition can only dream of. You believe in high quality design because that’s what drives you, and you’re inspired by people who feel the same way.

  • Participate, on an ongoing basis, to be a thoughtful critique of visuals and functionality
  • Report internally on a regular basis the status of the design experience end-user impact
  • Uphold Spiria’s objective of delivering quality products based on time and budget
  • Create the right tempo to collaborate with cross-functional teams to resolve problems related to design experience and budgets
  • Ensure design is multi-device ready (based on scope): proper formatting, scalability and reactive elements are adjusted and implemented before product launch
  • Continuously communicate and document any changes made by client or due to internal technical limitations in the living design system
  • Work with the Product Director in case of any functional/experience related changes during development cycle

  • 5+ years working experience as a Product or UX Designer

  • High attention to detail

  • Experience designing across multiple platforms and understanding modern design patterns for Web, iOS, and Android
  • The ability to design interactions, flows, and experiences that are simple
  • AODA Certification is considered an asset

  • Can work in a fast-paced startup environment or has experience working in a digital design agency able to stick to and meet deadlines
  • Have been a part of a team that has successfully shipped a digital product
  • Can easily tell the difference between a ‘good’ experience from ‘great’
  • Focus on defining the problem first, to ensure the solution is right for use

Your work speaks for itself. We want your portfolio, not your resume. We won’t give you a list of criteria to meet, or a series of boxes to check. We’re not going to tell you how many years of experience makes a good designer. We’re not after your credentials: we want your talent.
