Job Description

At Neuterra Inc., we are re-imagining consumerism by providing the most transparent way to shop for a planet with finite resources. We use traceability and supply chain technologies to enable consumers to make the most informed buying decisions available to the public.

Neuterra Inc. is looking to hire a driven UX Designer. You would join the founding team as one of the first hires and help develop and launch our innovative platform. You would work in a fast-paced environment, lead projects, solve challenging problems, contribute to company innovation efforts and build rapport with internal and external shareholders as we near Series A funding.

As a small team, we’re looking for someone that can wear multiple hats on the UX design side and cross-collaborate with the product development side. Prior startup experience isn’t required, but the passion to help lead the charge on a purpose-driven entrepreneurial endeavor with an early-stage startup is.

Strong candidates will have some or all of the following attributes. Please note, we value people and experiences over resumes.

Your Qualifications and Skills:

  • User Research and Strategy
  • Wireframing and Prototyping
  • User Interface (UI) Design
  • Responsive Web Design
  • Project Management
  • Team and Stakeholder Management
  • Empathy/Understanding how users think

  • Persona Development: Consolidate and interpret your findings to construct multiple representative personas based on your findings (patterns and commonalities) from your research. Each persona represents a potential user’s motivations, demographic information, needs and anything else developers need to consider for product development.
  • Information Architecture (IA): Create blueprints to optimize the way users interact and move through the product.
  • Wireframing: Create low-fidelity design sketches that represent different screens/stages of the product throughout the user journey.
  • Prototyping and High Fidelity Design: Create high-fidelity clickable prototypes of the product for user testing and to illustrate the product to the development team.
  • User Testing: Be creative! Use various methods to test products, including focus groups, moderated and unmoderated user tests, and product testing.

  • Improve the look and feel of interactive computers and product software
  • Analyze customer responses and website data to determine high traffic web pages and why some perform better than others

What You’ll Get:

  • Competitive equity incentives
  • A friendly work environment with motivated, talented, and visionary colleagues
  • Work for a purpose-driven company to reshape modern consumerism
  • Work for a Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) and women owned company with an egalitarian culture
