ABOUT PIXEL TOURS

We are a software design and development consultancy with a large and diverse portfolio of mobile and web projects, from enterprise business to Fin Tech to VR/AR. We’re looking for people with sharp eyes, and even sharper minds to join our growing team.

ABOUT YOU

You are a designer. A designer who thinks first about the users needs. A designer with a passion for creating elegant, highly usable interfaces and systems. You are skilled in Sketch, the Adobe suite, and the art of mobile and web design. You have at least 2 years of experience designing for both responsive web and mobile applications and have a strong portfolio that you can share with us. You pride yourself in not only your creativity but also your versatility being able to move between projects as necessary. Your comfortable breaking down complex data-rich user process to determine the essence of the task and building intuitive flows and designs to accomplish the task in a user first manner. You can deliver high-quality work in a fast-paced environment.

You like people, and understand that a good design isn't great until it has passed through the gate of real world user testing. You understand changes are a part of the process and are adaptive enough to be able to vary a design to meet user and client needs.

You take great joy in seeing your designs in the real world. You aspire to greatness—maybe for you that’s winning awards, presenting at a conference, or simply the satisfaction of knowing thousands, or millions, of people had a better day because of something you helped create.
