UX/UI​ ​Designer​


Design is key

Design​ ​is​ ​a​ ​big​ ​deal​ ​to​ ​us.​ ​​We​ ​believe​ ​a​ ​user​ ​interface​ ​needs​ ​to​ ​be​ ​simple​ ​and​ ​effortless​ ​to​ ​interact with.​ ​​We​ ​love​ ​clean,​ ​well-organized​ ​code,​ ​as​ ​much​ ​as​ ​we​ ​love​ ​creativity​ ​and​ ​clarity​ ​in​ ​design. 

Here's the deal

Ameego​ ​is​ ​growing​ ​and​ ​we're​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​another​ ​super​ ​star​ ​to​ ​join​ ​our​ ​amazing​ ​team.​ ​We're​ ​looking for​ ​a​ ​full time, UX/UI​ ​Designer​ ​who​ ​absolutely​ ​loves clean​ ​design,​ ​a​ ​fantastic​ ​brand,​ ​and​ ​making​ ​amazing​ ​software​ ​as​ ​simple​ ​to​ ​use​ ​as​ ​possible. Funding requirements for this position state the potential candidate must be a Canadian​ ​citizen,​ ​permanent​ ​resident​ ​of​ ​Canada,​ ​or​ ​person​ ​who​ ​has​ ​been​ ​granted refugee​ ​status​ ​in​ ​Canada. 

What you'll be focusing on

At​ ​Ameego,​ ​things​ ​are​ ​constantly​ ​moving,​ ​and​ ​moving​ ​quickly.​ ​​As​ ​a​ ​UI​ ​designer,​ ​you’ll​ ​always​ ​be working​ ​on​ ​different​ ​things.​ ​​ ​At​ ​times,​ ​you​ ​could​ ​be​ ​working​ ​on​ ​a​ ​client-specific​ ​enhancement​ ​that​ ​is going​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​dramatic​ ​impact​ ​on​ ​their​ ​success​ ​as​ ​an​ ​organization.​ ​​Other​ ​times​ ​you​ ​might​ ​be tweaking​ ​an​ ​existing​ ​user​ ​workflow​ ​or​ ​interface​ ​within​ ​Ameego,​ ​or​ ​designing​ ​a​ ​ground-breaking​ ​new component​ ​that​ ​will​ ​change​ ​the​ ​rules​ ​of​ ​the​ ​game.​ ​​​Regardless​ ​of​ ​what​ ​you’re​ ​working​ ​on,​ ​you’ll​ ​be bringing-to-life​ ​the​ ​Ameego​ ​brand​ ​in​ ​everything​ ​you​ ​design.

Innovating an industry

At​ ​Ameego,​ ​we​ ​build​ ​and​ ​deliver​ ​tools​ ​that​ ​change​ ​the​ ​rules​ ​of​ ​the​ ​game.​ We​ ​take​ ​very​ ​complex manual​ ​processes,​ ​tear'em​ ​apart​ ​and​ ​rebuild​ ​them​ ​in​ ​a​ ​way​ ​that's​ ​simple,​ ​automated​ ​and streamlined. We​ ​work​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​with​ ​the​ ​hospitality​ ​industry​ ​and​ ​our​ ​main​ ​focus​ ​is​ ​on​ ​labor,​ ​scheduling and​ ​resource​ ​management.​ The​ ​tools​ ​you'll​ ​help​ ​to​ ​build​ ​will​ ​drastically​ ​improve​ ​the​ ​personal​ ​lives​ ​of our​ ​users,​ ​and​ ​enable​ ​the​ ​organizations​ ​we​ ​work​ ​with​ ​to​ ​replicate​ ​massive​ ​success​ ​across​ ​their brand.

More fun stuff

It​ ​all​ ​comes​ ​down​ ​to​ ​results,​ ​and​ ​our​ ​expectations​ ​are​ ​very​ ​high.​ ​Everyone​ ​in​ ​our​ ​crew​ ​is​ ​a​ ​star performer​ ​and​ ​they​ ​live​ ​to​ ​exceed​ ​expectations.​ ​That's​ ​the​ ​standard​ ​by​ ​which​ ​we​ ​live,​ ​work​ ​and​ ​play. We're​ ​not​ ​too​ ​hot​ ​on​ ​'presentee-ism'​ ​-​ ​just​ ​showing​ ​up​ ​for​ ​8​ ​hours​ ​a​ ​day​ ​and​ ​not​ ​delivering.​ ​Results are​ ​where​ ​it's​ ​at​ ​and​ ​that's​ ​how​ ​we​ ​operate.​ ​We​ ​work​ ​in​ ​what's​ ​called​ ​a​ ​'ROWE'.​ ​It​ ​stands​ ​for​ ​'Results Only​ ​Work​ ​Environment'.​ ​Basically​ ​it​ ​means​ ​that​ ​as​ ​long​ ​as​ ​you​ ​deliver​ ​results,​ ​do​ ​whatever​ ​the​ ​heck you​ ​want,​ ​whenever​ ​the​ ​heck​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to.​ ​Yup,​ ​go​ ​grocery​ ​shopping​ ​on​ ​Tuesday​ ​afternoon,​ ​and check​ ​out​ ​a​ ​matinee​ ​on​ ​Thursday,​ ​as​ ​long​ ​as​ ​your​ ​work​ ​gets​ ​done.​ ​If​ ​the​ ​ROWE​ ​sounds​ ​wicked​ ​to you,​ ​that's​ ​because​ ​it​ ​is.
