Please note: We are no longer accepting applications for this position.

Passionate about user interface and user experience design? Searching for opportunities to grow your career and use your creative powers for good?

We want to meet you!

At Software for Good, we bring people and technology together to solve complex world problems like climate change, housing, health care, human rights, renewable energy, and education. We are a fully remote digital agency founded in Minneapolis, and we develop web and mobile applications for clients including social enterprises, nonprofits, startups, and educational and government entities.

We are hiring a human-centered designer who is eager to work on inclusive, ethical technology that has a positive social impact. Our ideal collaborator is enthusiastic about our mission, skilled at creating beautiful and empathy-driven experiences, and thoughtful about the impact of technology and the biases of people who create it.

We strive to include people from underrepresented backgrounds, and would love to know what specific talents you could bring to our mission-driven client projects.

The work will likely include:

• Creating design mockups of digital experiences in Sketch, InVision, Figma, Photoshop, Webflow, and/or the tools you are most comfortable with
• Creating responsive web designs that put people’s needs first
• Working with our team to evaluate designs for inclusion and accessibility
• Facilitating strategy sessions and activities to help us determine what to build and why — journey mapping, sketching, etc.
• Working closely with our product strategy team to plan and review design work, making sure it fits with the overall strategic vision for the project and aligns with the mission of Software for Good
• Working with clients to understand their goals and make their ideas tangible
• Incorporating feedback from both clients and people who may use the product
• Contributing ideas to overall product success, including making recommendations based on common design patterns and proven best practices
• Shepherding design and UX through the launch of the product
