QC TechClub – Designers Needed!

The Queens College TechClub was created to provide students with real-world projects and experience. Most of the companies that students have the opportunity to work with are smaller businesses or start-ups. The majority of their current projects involve web development (i.e., creating layouts and various visual aspects of the website) and they are currently seeking at most two (2) designers to help in this process. However, as TechClub grows and obtains more projects the need of more members will arise. Designer students will work in collaboration with Queens College computer science students to create these projects from the ground up as a team for actual clients.

For more information you can view their website or contact Carlos Beltran at carlos@techclub.nyc.

UI/UX Design Position at Enchanted Diamonds

Enchanted Diamonds is a small, high-end online diamond jewelry retailer based in Midtown Manhattan. Our inventory is virtual, so almost none of our diamonds are actually located in New York City, and all of our jewelry is manufactured just-in-time in the Diamond District. This sort of business provides a unique set of design challenges because most of our customers make high value purchases based almost solely on information presented through our website, rather than through looking at items in person. We also provide a very high degree of customization of our products, and communicating those possibilities is another major challenge.
JOB DESCRIPTION
The UI/UX Designer’s job is to work closely with the sales and development teams to design an eCommerce user interface. The challenge boils down to balancing simplicity for the sake of user friendliness, with providing all the details of a complex and expensive product or service for the sake of transparency. The designer will work with core employees to identify the problem and decide on design direction. Then, he or she will work on mock-ups and prototypes with regular feedback (the employee in charge of the feature/project will check in a couple times a day), and will iterate until all stakeholders are satisfied. At that point, the development team implements the design, requesting alterations and revisions as they become necessary. Since the team is rather small, project management is very flexible and informal (“Agile” to use the buzzword).
Secondary, but still important, is the design and branding element of the job. We have a general direction for the brand’s aesthetic, and designer will need to be creative but still work within set parameters.
Another fact of working at a small but ambitious company is that each person fulfills many roles. Skills such as photography, copywriting, and illustration are appreciated and can be put to use.
ESSENTIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
* Design mockups and prototypes for the website
* Design promotional emails
* Design marketing materials
* Assist in producing photographs and original content
* Perform miscellaneous/unforseen design tasks as they come up
REQUIREMENTS
* UI/UX design sensibilities
* Graphic design sensibilities
* Familiarity with common UI/UX design processes
* Familiarity with either Sketch or Adobe software
We do not have any set minimum experience requirements. We evaluate education, work experience, and portfolio work on a case-by-case basis.
BONUS SKILLS
* 3D or CAD
* Photography
* Illustration
* Writing
* Knowledge of social media
* Statistics and/or web analytics
* Web development
PERKS
* Flexible hours
* Free lunch every day
COMPENSATION
Pay starts at $10.50/hr and is negotiable based on experience.
