UI/UX Developer

 

True Impact is seeking a UI/UX Developer to design and create the interfaces for data-driven products which help foundations, corporations, and nonprofits streamline and simplify the process of reporting on the social impacts of NPO programs. A successful candidate will have experience building wireframes and pixel-perfect designs, then applying React.js and other JavaScript frameworks to render them into beautiful, functional, and performant front end interfaces integrated with our GraphQL API. A successful UI/UX Developer will understand and advocate for the needs of customers, take ownership of the user experience, and constantly push to deliver innovative solutions to problems.

This is an ideal opportunity to be part of a tight-knit software team at an early stage, with the chance to make your mark on the leading impact-measurement application in the industry as we begin refactoring our application for scale. At True Impact, we are a team with a mission: to replace antiquated grant reporting with an impact-focused platform that requires a fraction of the effort and delivers the kind of data insights never before seen in nonprofit grant reporting…allowing both donors and nonprofits visibility onto their actual impacts on their communities and the world.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with stakeholders including company leadership, our client success team, sales, as well as customers to understand the needs and pain points of our customers
  • Craft user stories and wireframes illustrating interfaces that provide elegant, clean, and professional-looking solutions to these needs, then gather and integrate feedback from stakeholders into final versions
  • Using Sketch, or similar tool of choice to evolve wireframes into pixel-perfect designs, as well as building out a style guide for consistent styling across designs
  • Develop UI based on approved designs using existing front end stack, including React.js, jQuery, MaterialUI, and Bootstrap
  • Integrate the UI with our GraphQL API, ensuring that the overall goal and use cases are effectively and efficiently accomplished, then work with the QA team to resolve any remaining bugs on schedule.
  • Collaborate with the entire development team to ensure that sprint goals are met
  • Demonstrate finished functionality to stakeholders and product owners
  • Proactively identify and flag performance issues, bugs, and other impediments to on-time feature delivery and work to resolve them as a team
